I believe learning always comes easiest when one is having a good time. I don't mean to say there isn't hard work involved - there absolutely is! But being able to engage in interesting topics and have a good laugh every once in a while certainly helps in the process. I try to make my lessons as personalized, dynamic and fun as possible, and I tailor every class to the specific needs and interests of each of my students.
I have been a language teacher for 10 years, and I've had a lot of fun in the process!
I have taught people of all ages (from 7 to 70, quite literally), both in large groups and privately, online and in person. I am passionate about languages and about education, and teaching Portuguese (my native language) allows me to channel these two interests and encourage students to learn more and better.
Ian is one of the most caring, funny and intelligent people i've ever met, his social and teaching skills are out of this world. He can easily start and maintain a conversation for hours. If you ever had him as your teacher, you'll never forget the cheerfull moments you've spent with him.
Ian was the best teacher I’ve ever had. His classes and the way he teaches are amazing. I talked to a lot of his students and their opinion are the same, that Mr. Leisner do a really good job. He didn’t just make us learn, he made us have a great time studying. Me and my classmates couldn’t wait for the next class, because there we could study, but have fun and laugh too. Ian wasn’t just an excelent teacher for me, he is also a friend.
Ian is that type of teacher that pushes you to do your best and that also makes you want to go to class. Throughout my 7 years going to my english school, the semester that Ian got to be my teacher was absolutely the best. I was going through the phase where I didn’t want to go to class anymore and was making up excuses not to go. However, Ian changed my perspective about learning and having fun and that’s why i appreciate him a lot as a tutor and especially as a person. He has all my respect and my gratefulness for not letting me give up on learning this language.
I've known Ian since I was a teenager and he's one of the most intelligent, kind and creative people I've ever met.
He's always learning something new and, alongside all the other qualities required for the job, I believe that's why he's such a great teacher. He knows how good it is to learn, and how good it feels when you do it with with a caring tutor.
He's a creative, competent and resourceful teatcher.
A trustworthy friend with a kind heart.
Ian is, by far, one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. He is super intelligent, caring and fun. I know that if I ever face any difficulty, he will patiently help me with that issue, like he always did. Ian is a person that I truly admire and trust. He is also a very cultural diverse man, he knows a lot about a lot of things, and that makes things easier and more fun. Ian Quint Leisner is the type of teacher that everyone should have at least once on their lives.
Ian is the most hardworking English teacher I've ever met. He really wants people to learn, and it's really easy to keep paying attention to his classes.
I met Ian in a exchange program in June of 2019 in Florida. He is a gentle and interesting person, a guy that listens and doesn’t make your teacher-student relationship impersonal. He is a trustworthy tutor because of his compassion and care for his students
I met Ian through an exchange program at the United States, and he is indeed a Superprof!! His energy is unmatched, and he shares knowledge with such glee that he could even talk about paint drying and I’d listen haha. Ian knows a lot of facts, but he shares them in a quiet and serene way, which is not bad at all for me. He may not be as extroverted, but I do not think that is a bad thing, and for me that just adds to the way he teaches. He is very observant and takes care of all his students with a lot of love, and having him accompanying me at the exchange program was a blast. It would have even been better to have him as a teacher full time for me!
