Hi! I'm Leslie and I am a certified special educator. I have experience as a learning facilitator in most subjects. I have taught at the middle and high school levels in both public and charter schools. I am also trained in Wilson Reading. I have provided prep support to students taking the G.E.D., SAT and the MCAS. I have tutored students for homework, including working on ways to improve their study skills and organization. I have also worked with ESL students, helping the learn to speak and read English, as well as supporting them with their main school subjects.
I like to use a one-on-one, relaxed yet focused approach. I use techniques that assist in written response, "getting it from your head to the paper". I can work with students with traditional and non-traditional learning styles, instilling study skills and habits that provide tools for independent learning. I live on Martha's Vineyard, but I can easily, and will readily, travel off island to tutor.
