"Great tutor and very accommodating!"
Amy from Chapel Hill, NC on 5/27/14
My 10th grade son has been working with Leslie for the full school year and she has been tremendous, not only as a writing tutor, but also because of her flexibility. She has worked with my son on organizing his ideas into an outline, developing his thoughts in writing, increasing the complexity of his writing, and grammar. Best of all, Leslie was able to conduct video tutoring sessions over Skype for extra sessions or when their schedules did not sync.

Leslie is an excellent tutor. She helped me prepare for the GRE. She has a great understanding of the test design and what the test is actually designed to assess. I highly, highly recommend her. She is very knowledgeable, patient, and experienced!

Leslie met with my son once a week for two months prior to SAT. My son gained 130 points in reading and writing. The experience was painless and much more effective than group SAT class.
"Highly recommend for NC Bar Exam"
Lien from Raleigh, NC on 8/31/13
I hired Leslie after two failed attempts with the NC Bar Exam. Her approach to tutoring was very effective and she customized a plan for me to improve on my weaknesses. The biggest help was Leslie's ability to write questions that were original and unlike any seen on previously released NC Bar Exams. She paid careful attention in reviewing my assignments, providing me with a detailed and personalized critique so I could truly improve and succeed this last time. I did not even use a bar prep course to prepare for my third time taking the bar exam; I had Leslie. I highly recommend Leslie if you want some honest, effective and efficient tutoring.

After working with Leslie for 8 weeks, my daughter felt much more confident going into the SAT test, and her combined score went up 260 points!!! I highly recommend Leslie.
"Excellent essay tutoring"
Jessica from Durham, NC on 2/8/13
Leslie has helped me learn how best to write a standard five-paragraph essay under a thirty-minute time limit. She has taught me how to brainstorm in order to come up with a good thesis statement and bullet points to feature in the essay. Her help has been invaluable in learning how to write the right kind of essay that many advanced testing formats require. She is very clear and specific in her explanations, and she makes sure that I understand what I need to do in order to get the score I want. Working with her is great and well worth it.
"Can Help Your Child's Scores"
Sherrie from Durham, NC on 11/16/12
Due to a stint at the Governor's School, my son had limited time to work with a tutor prior to his Senior year's SAT tests. Mrs. N helped my son grow by 150 - 200 points in his overall score, with his writing scores being the largest growth area, in just the limited 6 week time.
"Great Tutor for the bar exam!!!"
Keri from Cary, NC on 8/29/12
I contacted Leslie while I was studying to take the bar exam for the 3rd time. I knew that essays were my weak point. Leslie was able to help me organize my essays in a more concise manner. She helped me in what I should and should not include in them. Leslie has an abundance of her own essays which was very helpful. I had been practicing with barbri essays. If I didn't know the answer I would just look it up. By writing essays for Leslie I was forced to write them the way I would on the bar exam if I didn't know the answer.
Leslie offered great critiques of my essays and was very fast at getting back to me. We met a few times in person, which was also very helpful. The critiques that Leslie gave me on my essays were very helpful. They guided me in knowing what I needed to fix and how. She is a great tutor for the bar exam! She is also very encouraging!!! I would highly recommend her if you are looking for help on your essays for the bar exam!!!

I contacted Leslie through WyzAnt to work with my daughter, who has a learning difference, on improving her ACT scores in the area of English. In the past month, my daughter has made excellent progress in preparing for the next round of the ACT. Leslie creates a calm and relaxed working environment during the tutoring session. Her bright and encouraging personality motivates my daughter to please Leslie and perform at her best during instruction. Since working with Leslie, I realize the sessions have helped my daughter to improve her all around English skills, which have made her more successful in the high school classroom and will help prepare her for college. After the ACT test is over, my daughter has asked if she may continue working with Leslie to expand her writing skills in preparation for college essays. My daughter loves working with Leslie and looks forward to her tutoring sessions, even after a long day at school.
It is important to note Leslie is experienced in tutoring children with learning differences. It is my opinion, a child will be more successful and the outcome of the tutoring sessions more productive, if the tutor is skilled and experienced in working with students academically challenged.

I've done 2 hours now with Leslie, she is amazing in her way of tutoring, and she is so patient. She knows what is the best way to teach.
