About Leslie

I have been helping students with special needs for over 10 years. I specialize in students with visual impairments, but have worked with students of all abilities. I enjoy helping students achieve their greatest potential. The past few years I have helped many students prepare for SAT and ACT tests, which includes asking for accommodations as necessary for those with IEPs. Standardized tests have become the norm but not all students are test-takers by nature. I love to help students gain confidence and perform to their abilities on tests and in school.

I am a specialist in assistive technology and working online is my preference. Online sessions are convenient and practical. Today's technology allows tutor sessions online to be as engaging and effective as in-home visits. Working in a comfortable environment with a tutor can make a huge difference in performance. There is less anxiety and pressure than in a classroom environment. Many students are techies and it has become the teaching platform of the next generation.

I am a credentialed Education Specialist in the state of California and have a CLEAR credential. I have been working with special needs students for 8 years. I have taught 1:1, in small groups and large audiences. Establishing clear goals and working towards those goals is my focus and I am here to help.
