My name is Leanne Lapaz and I am a graduate of UC Berkeley with a degree in Integrative Biology. I also have a Master's Degree in Biology from CSUN. My experiences as a elementary and junior high school science teacher and tutor at a career college have afforded me the opportunity to interact with diverse student populations and engage them in learning. What I have discovered is that regardless the age of the student, if the subject matter is not presented in an interesting and engaging way, there is a negligible degree of learning that occurs. Math does not have to be laborious and mind-numbing! There are so many practical applications for it in everyday life that it is astounding! I understand that not all students are going to learn in the typical way and that sometimes one has to apply unorthodox solutions to break through that brain-barrier. I also understand that taking tests is just as much about HOW you take the test as WHAT you know. There are definitely strategies that can be applied that can significantly improve test scores. I am qualified to tutor in an array of subjects, such as: Biology, Algebra, Geometry, Anatomy and Physiology, Basic Math and Science. My goal is to make the student excited about learning, that’s when it stops being work!
