About Leslie

My passion for tutoring comes from my love of learning and collaboration, i.e., working together with others to achieve a common goal. I view my role in the tutoring process as a partnership with each student. Before we begin we identify our specific goal(s) and together we design a workable plan to achieve the desired outcome.

I earned an undergraduate degree (BA) from U.C. Berkeley, where I excelled in English, History and my Major, Political Science. I earned my Law degree from Pepperdine Law School, where I further honed my writing and analytical skills. I passed the California bar exam on the first attempt and immediately went into practice in business and real estate litigation. For over twenty years, I have practiced in a variety of areas, including criminal defense, insurance defense, contracts, municipal law and most recently, collaborative divorce and mediation.

Over the years I have done peer tutoring in English writing and grammar and I have mentored many law clerks and young lawyers. I went to high school in Mexico City and speak Spanish fluently.

I attended high school in Mexico City where I learned to speak Spanish fluently. I also studied Spanish IV (classic literature) in college an tutored other students in beginning Spanish.

Both my undergraduate and law school education required rigorous study and development of advanced skills in the areas of English grammar, vocabulary and analytical writing. I also worked as a peer English tutor in college.

I encourage you to contact me to learn more About how I can help you, and to ask any questions you may have. If you are interested we can arrange lessons that accommodate your schedule.
