"Sei" is second person singular: "you are", "è" is third person singular: "he is", "she is", "it is".

It might help to hover over verbs and click on the blue conjugate button. You'll start to notice a pattern and conjugating verbs will become easier :)

One important thing you guys are leaving out is that Lei e' is also "you are" when used formally.

sei - are; é - is

Careful. Sei is only "you are" (talking informally to someone you know/younger than you). If you translate it like that, you might misconjugate "they are", which is sono. You'll understand better when you get to conjugates of essere.
