About Heaven-Leigh

I graduated from Florida International University in the elementary education program. I am now a certified k-6 teacher. Currently, I am a 5th grade science teacher but I have been trained to teach all subjects. I do have extensive experience in reading and the intensive accelerated programs.

However, I started tutoring in high school helping friends and their siblings. After high school I joined the military and upon leaving I was tutoring veterans at Miami-Dade and FIU.

Teaching is my passion and my life. I know that through learning and applying your knowledge is when change happens.

I tutor grammar, spelling, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, sight words, phonics, phonemic sounds, writing and penmanship, and essay writing and strategies.

I am an elementary science, 4th grade reading, writing, math, social studies, science, and intensive reading teacher with one-on-one tutor experience.

I have extensive training in the BMI system for testing and identifying fluent, on level, and frustration levels. Using these scores identifies the areas of growth that should be address.

I invite you to contact me with any questions or to schedule a time to identify your goals and start the lessons you require.

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.

Chess

While I have no formal trainings nor have I ever competed in any chess tournaments, I learned at an early age how to play. I believe that it helps with problem solving, learning to plan and think ahead, patience, and good sportsmanship. I taught my child how to play chess and we play matches to keep our skill in tune.

Handwriting

I have always believed that handwriting is a very important skill to have. Penmanship has always been a hobby of mine and from elementary to now, I have a note book to practice. Typing is important, however, penmanship is an art and with it you have more opportunities.

Microsoft Word

I have taken multiple courses on Microsoft Office since 2001 when I was in high school. I have adapted to the different versions and use it on a daily bases for home and work use.

Reading

I have dedicated many hours to studying what reading is and how to teach it.
Additionally, I have worked with k-5 students to improve several areas of growth. Some of which include, fluency, comprehension, sight words, inference, and others.
I have worked with students one-on- one, in a small group setting, and in a whole group setting.
I have used various methods to assess and determine the best route to take when working with an individual and focusing on their needs.
