My name is Lesli B. and I have been teaching Special Education since 1999. I am certified in EC-4th grade, ESL EC-12th grade and Special Education EC-12th grade.

I have taught in both the private and public schools and have had great success working with children in both a group setting and one-on-one. I have had my own tutoring business as well, and I have owned my own learning center for children diagnosed on the autism spectrum.

I have a great passion for teaching children of various ages and abilities. I use a multi-sensory approach to learning and believe that learning and having fun go hand in hand!

I understand the frustrations and challenges that children face in school and I have been diagnosed with ADHD myself. I believe that my own challenge with ADHD allows me to empathize and provide the tools necessary for any child's success! It is important that parents are an integral part of the tutoring process and parents are their child's best advocate.

In addition, I help students organize their work, create a schedule, and teach them how to learn best according to their learning style. I break assignments down and accommodate and modify as needed per student.

I have been teaching Special Education since 1999. Though we are now working on the STAAR test in Texas, I have taught many students to pass the state exam.
