About Leslie

Hello Students! I have many years of teaching experience! I have been a college professor for many years so I enjoy seeing people learn - and I like to be part of that learning process. My areas of specialization are within research and writing, composition and producing creating research projects. I have experience teaching middle school and high school students for several years before working as a college professor. Because I have so many years' experience with various age groups, I am able to present material at your level so that YOU understand it. Also, I have subject-matter expertise in Criminal Justice, Criminology and Psychology. I have a master's degree from the University of South Florida in criminal justice and I am a 17 year veteran of a local law-enforcement department. I would say my greatest strength is in tutoring students how to write a research project with ease. I love teaching people how to compose a nice research or book report!

No matter what your age is I can help. If you are an adolescent or an adult learner, I can walk you through the process. I also have a passion for reading! Are you struggling with reading comprehension? I can help you. Sometimes, reading comprehension and report-writing go hand-in-hand, so I can walk you through the process of understanding what you read, and then teach you how to write what you have read. Do you have a public speaking presentation? I can help you with that too. Since I have been a college professor for so long, I have some great ideas how to make your presentation stand out - I had to present lesson plans to adult learners for years, so I know how to make a presentation exciting. If you need help with any of the things I have mentioned here, please feel free to reach out to me. I decided to charge at the lowest range so that it can be affordable to you or anyone in your family. If you have friends of family members who need help, refer them to me. I love learning and I LOVE teaching. I can't wait to be a part of your education!

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.

Bible Studies

I am qualified to teach Bible studies as this is a hobby that I do and have done for several years. I studied the Bible not only because it is part of my Christian faith but because I am very interested in the word of God, and His teaching. My area of expertise in Bible study is eschatology or and time studies. I have extra biblical books and other texts that support my knowledge and understanding of Bible studies.

Criminal Justice

I have a master's degree from the University of South Florida in criminal justice and I am a 17 year veteran of a local law-enforcement department. I have also taught criminal justice at the college level.

Handwriting

I have had the opportunity in the past to tutor students in handwriting. By using current tracing methods and emphasizing hand/eye coordination techniques, I have successfully taught student skillful handwriting. I have a PhD in psychology which has trained me in understanding the cognitive functions necessary in handwriting processes. Mostly, I am very patient and love to see learning occur.

Microsoft Word

I am pretty proficient in Microsoft Word and Excel I use it every single day!

Public Speaking

I have been involved in public speaking for approximately 20 years of my life. I did Townhall meetings as a deputy sheriff here in Tampa Florida and I also did public speaking events at middle schools and high schools during that same timeframe. As a college professor I give public presentations on a daily basis, and two faculty members during faculty enrichment sessions and during faculty meetings.

I have a PhD in Research Psychology so I have been taught, and have taught others, the concepts of public speaking. I can help prepare presentations if needed, guide students on practicing, and most importantly, techniques for keeping the audience engaged and interested.

Reading

I am a professional educator with numerous years of teaching at all levels of academic from middle school to the college level.

Sociology

I have college-level training and education in Sociology at the graduate and doctoral level. My masters degree in Criminal Justice focuses on Sociology by which it delves into why society suffers from various problems, and how to fix those problems. As a psychologist, I have formal training on how Society/sociology influences the person. I have also taught Social Psychology at the college level as well.

Study Skills

My educational background includes 23 years of formal education so I am able to utilize some of the study skills are used to pass on to others. Also, as a college professor, I would hold sessions on study skills and study habits to help students utilize time and habits properly. The study habits that I have implemented are tried and true I have shown to be successful.

Writing

Expert with decades of experience in writing, research and composition. College professor with tutoring and teaching experience.
