About Leah

I have an MA in Medieval and Early Modern History from the University of Bristol in England. I wrote my dissertation on a 17th century poet's influence on theater during the Restoration Period in England (1660-1685). I have a strong background in British History as well as Literature. Also at Bristol, my PowerPoint presentation has become the exemplar of the department on how professional PowerPoints should look.

I also have experience tutoring in beginning Hebrew as well as Hebrew prayers for Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation. I have been tutoring in this area for 5 years.

I also teach Religious school on Sundays, so I am experienced in teaching comparative religious views. This also stems from the period of history from my MA as religion plays a key component in life from the Medieval and Early Modern period.

I tutor one on one through answering questions and repetition of facts. I also like having mini presentations from projects as well as using the student's creativity in those projects. I always reward improvement through certificates, candy or prizes.

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.

Hebrew

I have tutored basic Hebrew for 5 years, which includes letters, vowels and reading. I also tutor for Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation through reading practice. I use a lot of repetition while practicing prayers. I will chant with students and correct as needed.

Religion

I have been teaching religion for 5 years at different grade levels from 4-8th. I focus mostly on Judaism, but have experience in comparative religions. When comparing religions we go over the history of the religions and the similarities of the religions we are comparing. Then we go over the differences in belief and examine any conflicts between the two.

Writing

I am proficient in editing. I am knowledgeable with MLA and APA formats. MLA is my expertise.
