About Leigh

My lifelong love of reading and writing led me to study English at Columbia University, where I received my B.A. in English. During my time at Columbia, I tutored local Harlem elementary school students in English, math, and science. I also had several private tutoring clients, ranging in age from eleven to eighteen. With my private clients, I specialized in helping them to improve their vocabulary, to improve the style of their prose, and to make sophisticated, logical arguments in their papers. I am also the go-to stylistic and copy editor for papers and screenplays among my friends.

As a tutor, I love to help my students feel more empowered and confident in their work. I am friendly and patient with students of different backgrounds, abilities, and learning styles. I listen actively in order to identify students' problems and areas of weakness and make comprehensive lesson plans to facilitate learning and ultimately to improve the quality of their work.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!
