Hi my name is Lesley and I'm a retired Systems Engineer from a defense contractor, where one of most enjoyable tasks I had was training our military personal how to use various software programs. That skill was extended to our company's internal training program creating and teaching beginning, intermediate and advanced Microsoft Excel.
I have a Geology degree from University of Massachusetts and a Computer Engineering degree from USC. My career started as a geologist at the Center for Earth and Planetary studies at the Smithsonian, transitioning from using computer systems to designing them, to training the user on the use of them as a Instructor and Systems Engineer.
Finally going back to my love of geology and teaching, I joined California State Park system as a Park Interpreter Specialist leading Geology tours, explaining complex geologic concepts into easy to understand and fun terms. I hope to use my expertise, experience and encouragement to help you succeed.
My tutoring method is flexible to meet your needs, whether it is problem solving techniques, filling in gaps of knowledge, or helping with a project at work. I don't provide the answer but lead you in the process of problem solving. I will focus on your assignments in context of how they were assigned to you. We will identify your expected outcomes, your timeline and availability. I am flexible and will work with your schedule. I will come to your home or meet at a location of your choice. I have an 24-hour cancellation policy. I respect your time and understand when schedules change.
I enjoy working with all ages making learning fun, relative and easy to understand. I look forward to hearing from you and help you achieve success.
