Hello, My name is Leona. I am a licensed Civil Engineer and I love helping others to succeed.

My strength is in math. However, I am fully qualified to tutor several elementary school, middle school, high school, and college courses. I also tutor in preparation for the ACT, ASVAB, GED, GRE, OAT, SAT, and TEAS exams; and my students have had great success!

I am very patient, flexible, and have mentored and tutored students for 25+ years.

If you are interested, I can meet with you at a local library Monday - Sunday, except Wednesdays. I look forward to working with you!

Thank you.
