About Leza

I would love the opportunity to help you with your studies. I am a UCLA graduate with a lifetime of experience to offer. I am also a CA State Certified Substitute Teacher, currently teaching English/writing/composition classes at an elementary school level learning center.

My daughter is a successful 4.0 student at SFSU. I spent 18 years helping guide her through all subjects, including AP courses. I truly believe that learning can be fun. Lets be honest: It takes hard work, but it doesn't have to be drudgery! I am a very hands-on person. I like to teach through word association, visual aids, and lively discussion. I am enthusiastic and truly love kids of all ages.

I hope to hear from you so we can get started!!

Approved subjects

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have a Psychology degree from UCLA, where I specialized in Young Autism. I have extensive experience working with these wonderful children.

CBEST

I have my CBEST credential. I passed the test on my first attempt and scored very well on both applications. I know I can help others pass as well!

Dyslexia

I have a degree from UCLA in Psychology with an emphasis in Autisim and Special Needs students. I studied under Ivar Lovas, who was a ground breaking professor.
I have had 5 years experience working with special needs children and adults of all levels. Additionally, I have a wonderful father who is Alexic as a result of a brain bleed. He is a PhD Berkeley graduate and has had to learn to read all over again at 79 years old. With my help and direction, he is reading at an 85% capacity after only one year, when doctors told him he would only be at a 5th grade level.
I am confident that I can help more dyslexic/alexic students!!


Thank you!

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a UCLA graduate as well as a mother. I have always volunteered in my child's classroom. As a result of my experiences in the classroom, and at the encouragement of several teachers, I studied for and passed the CBEST become a CA State Certified Substitute Teacher.

I believe that learning can truly be fun. I like to create a tactile, or hands on, environment. For example, mathematics can be taught through cooking, knitting, planting. Vocabulary can be broken down to the basics in a manner that anyone can understand. Science is logical and can be amazingly fun and interesting. I think that with creativity, even the most unmotivated student can turn things around!

I have a great connection with kids. I am patient with their different and individual needs. I hope to hear from you!

Elementary Math

Math can be frustrating for many students. I look at mathematics like a puzzle. Once you've figured out how to solve the "missing piece," it can be fun and rewarding! I have years of experience tutoring students and have enjoyed many success stories.

Phonics

I have worked with many students at all levels to strengthen their understanding of phonics. I am familiar and comfortable with programs such as Hooked on Phonics, Reading Without Tears, and EdMark. I love watching students as they grasp and understand how sounds connect together to form words, sentences, and finally stories or complete books!

Special Needs

I have worked extensively with autistic children. My psychology background is in Young Autism. I also have experience, past and current, with ADHD children.
