About Me

Hi! My name is Kaleigh (pronounced Ka-Lee), and I'm a professional English teacher from Canada who is passionate about art, literature, travel, politics and culture. I have a TEFL certificate, as well as a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in English. Because I'm an academic, I can offer my expertise in speaking and writing at the university level. My main goal is to help you learn English through engaging and natural conversation. One of the biggest complaints I hear from English learners is that they do not know how to hold a REAL conversation in English. Textbooks will teach you how to talk about the weather, business, or perhaps food, but rarely do they prepare you for fun, relatable conversation with real people. I can help you have more natural, fun and engaging conversations with English speakers. I will: give you tips on how to use slang and figures of speech, explain manners and etiquette, and teach you about English culture. I have lived in both Canada and the United Kingdom, so if you are thinking about moving or traveling to one of these countries, I can give you helpful advice on how to make friends and impress others in these societies.
If you have any further questions or would like to request a specific lesson topic from me, please let me know. I am very flexible and want to help you with whatever it is that you need to reach your goals!
Love, Kaleigh. :)
