B.S. San Jose State University CA (Biology)
I'm a recent graduate from San Jose State University. I received a Bachelor's of Science in Biological Sciences with a minor in Spanish. I worked for two consecutive summers as a science camp cabin leader with 5th graders. I also tutored and helped mentor AVID students throughout high school. While attending San Jose State University I tutored San Jose State University athletes in math(mostly algebra), English, biology and chemistry. I was also a private tutor for a 10th grade student athlete. I helped her with test taking skills, studying skills, time management skills and understanding subjects that were tough for her. I worked with her through her entire 10th grade year. The following school year I worked with another 10th grade student with reading and writing comprehension. She suffered from severe dyslexia and insecurity with writing skills and comprehension. Helped with processing and understanding prompts given to her by teacher, reading assignments and prompts revolving around reading, in class writing activities, skills for drafting in-class and at-home essays including: focus of paper, introduction paragraph, body structure of paper and sentence structure. I am willing to work with all schedules and understand that writing, math or science can be hard for some to grasp. I love working with students and helping them understand the subject and become confident in themselves and begin to truly excel. I enjoy connecting with the students and developing a relationship so we can work as a team so they can be successful in whichever subject they are struggling with.
I have tutored students with a wide range of math skills. I have tutored those who have severe math test anxiety, dyslexia and ADHD. I have the patience and skill to explain subjects in a way that students can understand.
I LOVE science! I feel like all those who struggle or hate science haven't had someone help them discover it down the right avenue. I love working with students who are struggling with science to help them grasp the concept and find a love for a subject they didn't know they could have!
I love working with people and helping students discover confidence they didn't know they possess. My tutoring style is one where we are a team and the ultimate goal if for the student to understand the concept we are trying to learn. I help provide the students I tutor with skills in studying, test taking and communication that they can use in that subject, other subjects and in all areas of their life. My tutoring sessions are fun and productive. Students feel like they have an ally that is on their side that wants them to succeed. I'm a recent graduate from San Jose State University.

My daughter does not like bio and her last tutor did nothing to make things better. Leeann definitely has experience with kids. My daughter not only grasp the subject but stays awake thru the whole session.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I love science and have experience with tutoring students in bio 1, grading bio 1 tests and lab work along with taking it myself! I'd love to help you.
