About Leah


Bio

I'm Leah! I received a master's degree in biological sciences from Eastern Illinois University, as well as a bachelor's degree in psychology and a minor in neuroscience, from the same institution. I have also taken and achieved strong scores on the ACT, GRE, and MCAT, so am familiar with the preparatory process for each of those exams. I have a passion for teaching and really enjoy finding ways to help students truly connect with the material. Teachers can truly make or break the material...

I'm Leah! I received a master's degree in biological sciences from Eastern Illinois University, as well as a bachelor's degree in psychology and a minor in neuroscience, from the same institution. I have also taken and achieved strong scores on the ACT, GRE, and MCAT, so am familiar with the preparatory process for each of those exams. I have a passion for teaching and really enjoy finding ways to help students truly connect with the material. Teachers can truly make or break the material for the student, so I always approach each teaching opportunity with an open mind and try to ascertain how to best personalize my approach for each student.

I received a master's degree in biological sciences from Eastern Illinois University, as well as a bachelor's degree in psychology and a minor in neuroscience, from the same institution. I have taken and achieved strong scores on the ACT, GRE, and MCAT. Both tutoring and teaching played a large role in my graduate education, as I was head of the Biology department tutoring program and also was Teacher's Assistant for Anatomy and Physiology I and II, General Biology, and Animal Physiology. I founded and currently run a mentoring program for students (both high school and college levels) looking to enter into STEM fields. I also spent a year as an instructor at Lake Land College in Illinois teaching both Anatomy and Physiology and General Biology, before moving to Arizona to do cancer research.

I like to have a lesson plan prepared before any tutoring session, therefore it is ideal for me to have a list of desired topics to be covered at least a day before each tutoring session. I am easy to reach, flexible, and quick to respond, so please feel free to contact me with any questions or to set up a session!
