About Levi

I have tutored college age students with learning differences for 2 years. I've worked with students with autism, Aspergers, ADD, ADHD, and down syndrome in a wide range of subjects including: English, writing, reading, math, economics, mythology, women's studies, and geography.

I have been a teacher for over 8 years working with a wide age range from 0-28. I have taught at two Denver Montessori preschools. I was an ESL instructor in Japan for one year, and I have been a brain trainer with LearningRx.

I love tutoring because it gives me the chance to get to know my students personalities. I enjoy walking students through the learning process and coming up with individualized plans for success. It's so rewarding to see growth and the overcoming of challenges when I work with students.

My tutoring specialty and true passion in life is writing. My poems and writings have appeared in Ink, Sweat & Tears, Litro Magazine, Twisted Vine, Birdy, River Poets Journal, Elephant Journal, and Japan Travel, among others. My first self-published children's book One Day as a Raven can be found in the Kindle store.

When I'm not teaching or tutoring I am busy being an entrepreneur and following my passions. I have a children's yoga company called Tall Tales Yoga, and I publish a podcast called Rocky Mountain Revival, Audio Art Journal.

For fun I enjoy riding my bike, snowboarding, reading, writing, hiking, climbing trees, cooking, eating, and spending time with my partner, my friends and family.

My qualifications in English and in writing were started in college, but the real reason I am an expert in the field is through hard work, discipline and practice. I cut my teeth in the writing world bit by bit by writing every day, submitting to publications, self-publishing and creating my own podcast/lit journal. Through these experiences I have honed in my craft and found the process that I can teach to others.

I have worked with students with learning differences and special needs for two years through a company called College Living Experience. I am primarily a tutor with this company, but I have worked in every department and have helped students with independent living skills, job coaching, health and fitness and much more. My work with young children, primarily of the ECE age has also given me a deep understanding of how we learn at a fundamental level and how we experience the world.

I am incredibly easy to work with. I go with the flow and my students always come first. That being said, I also have high expectations of my students. Grades and test scores are not my first priority, my main goal is to teach students how to learn, how to understand their own process and how to employ the executive functioning skills to survive in school and life beyond school. I simply ask that my students work to the highest degree of their capabilities and try to the best of their abilities.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

I have been tutoring college age students with a vast spectrum of learning differences and special needs for over 2 years. I work for a company called College Living Experience that works with this population. The majority of CLE's students are on the spectrum, but range from down syndrome to cerebral palsy and other special needs. I have experience working with students in every department including: Independent Living Skills, Career, and Academics, in addition to teaching yoga, transportation and other skills.
