Lesley is excellent at breaking things down and explaining problems in a way that make sense. Her patience and flexibility with scheduling has been a huge help with my GRE preparation. Highly recommended!
Leslie managed to teach me an approach that worked for my particular learning style and accomplished it in one hour. I struggled with these problems all year and now it is clear.
Lesley is a kind tutor who was very patient with our son. He felt at ease with her right away. We never felt rushed. It was a very positive learning environment for him!
Leslie has been wonderful. She has pinpointed very specific items that my child needs help with which made the process less overwhelming. She has been patient and kind, very generous with her knowledge and time.
Both of my teen age children have struggled with certain subjects in public school. They needed just a bit more attention and explanation of how certain problems were solved in Math, how to develop an idea in an essay, or a different way of looking at something. Lesley is very patient and passionate about helping students learn what they need. I could not be happier with her work with my kids, and I must admit it was hard to accept the fact that I could no longer help them with their homework. Making the decision to seek out a tutor was a great idea for my kids, and I could not be more pleased that I found Lesley. I highly recommend her work.
My daughter said she really liked Lesley as her new tutor. She is calming and patient and explains things well. Lesley works very hard and does not waste time. She does well in checking for understanding as my daughter's attention span sometimes gives out. Looking forward to continuing the learning.
I hired Lesley S. because I am a teacher and my job required that I get another certification that included physics and chemistry. Leslie began with the basics on physics as this was my weakest area. Leslie is persistent and consistent in her tutoring. She was also accommodating to my work and home schedule. With her help I was able to pass the required exam and earn another teaching certification. Leslie understood my objective and the goal I was working towards from the start. She was committed to helping me be successful.
Helps motivate my son by addressing his long term career interests. He only has good remarks. Among them is that Lesley is obviously smart and is good at encouraging him to ask questions related to the math they were working on. Lesley has been flexible with his tutoring needs by additionally helping with Spanish 3, and directing him to interesting and informative websites online regarding a longer term interest in Chemical Engineering.
Lesley was an excellent SAT tutor, tailoring her lessons to my teenager's specific needs. After a few sessions, he was ready to take the knowledge and guidance gained from Lesley and continue his studies independently.
Lesley is doing a wonderful job with our son. She is both patient and focused on a learning track for the session. He finishes each session with a positive attitude.
Leslie goes out of her way to help my daughter. She has rearranged her own personal calendar to accomodate her needs. We truly appreciate all the extra effort!
Lesley is truly a jewel! She has dramatically helped me improve, since I definitely feel more prepared to take my test! She is very easy to get a hold of, and to talk to. Additionally, Lesley is very good at listening to your issue to ensure she is able to really address the root of your problem. She is knows the information well, and is great at helping you understand presented information at a different level that ensures you are able to apply the it later (which is not only integral to test taking, but also life). Her advice is sound, and you can tell she is very compassionate, has a genuine love for teaching others, and will do everything in her power to help her students succeed. Definitely wish I met her sooner!
We called Lesley in an emergency to come help my son with his failing grade in AP Physics. He had a test in 2 days on material he could not understand. Lesley came over that night and spent nearly 2 hours with him patiently going through his review until he understood it. After that one meeting with Lesley he took his exam and got an A+! He has a new confidence and understanding in the material thanks to Lesley. We will definitely keep her in our speed dial for the next time one of my kids gets stumped. She saved my son hours of frustration as well as a low grade which would have resulted in a lower GPA. Thank you again Lesley!
Lesley has been great for our family. She interacts well with all three of my children. She is extremely knowledgeable in many subjects. She loves learning and loves working with my kids. She is always on time and very easy to communicate with. She returns emails promptly. I would highly recommend her.
Lesley tutored my son, age 17, for ACT Prep. We found Lesley to be responsive, friendly, attentive, knowledgeable, and compassionate. I will gladly ask her assistance again for other subjects as the need arises. Give her a try - I am sure you will be pleased!
Whether you need to help your child prepare for the SAT, ACT or just need to help them get through difficult courses in high school, I highly recommend tutoring with Lesley S. As the mother of a teenage daughter, I was looking for a knowledgeable, patient, dedicated, mature woman to help her do her best on the SAT. I found what I was looking for with Lesley. Not only is she intelligent, but she has the ability to use her intelligence to teach students in Math, Reading and Writing. Her ability to relate to teenagers was also impressive. My daughter enjoyed every session with Lesley. One of the things my daughter said was that Lesley made the sessions fun and interesting. Additionally, the atmosphere of the study rooms at the Boerne Public Library were conducive to positive learning sessions. Please consider using Lesley. She is well worth the investment.
Tutors tend to fit a specific mold of technical expertise or we wouldn't hire them. Lesley goes far beyond that standard and reaches out to engage the students mind in education on the subject at hand. That helps real learning happen. Her efforts go beyond the tutoring session and include outside assignments that more clearly demonstrate the specific lesson being worked on.
Lesley has keenly adapted her teaching style to best address my son's learning style. He has worked with tutors in the past but has expressed a true interest in Lesley's approach to teaching. She has taught him strategies to approach math questions on the SAT and helped him to recognize his strengths in writing, as well as weaknesses and ways to improve in these areas. Her enthusiasm about the subject matter she is teaching is always evident and truly peaks the interest of my son!
My daughter was really struggling in physics. We sought out Lesley and her grades started to improve. Lesley did so well with her that when it was time to prep for the ACT I knew Lesley wouldn't fail in helping my child reach her full potential. Lesley is truly a wonderful tutor.
Lesley taught from the students perspective and adapted instruction to meet the learning needs of our child. She was adaptable with her scheduling and made our child's needs a priority, in order to meet our family's scheduling needs. She truly goes above and beyond to ensure that her students are challenged to learn and I couldn't recommend her more highly - she was a blessing to our family!
Lesley has been tutoring my son for almost a year in reading and writing, and her patience and unique approach has worked wonders. I highly recommend Lesley.
