Georgia Tech Grad for Math, Science and Test Prep Tutoring
I love learning and helping students develop a life long love for learning. As a middle and high school science and math teacher for the past 14 years, I have helped hundreds of students overcome a dislike of math and science. I believe that if students can begin to gain confidence in their skills and see improvement, it can make a difference in their attitudes towards school. The best part of my job as a teacher was seeing kids who once struggled overcome their fear and anxiety and realize...
I love learning and helping students develop a life long love for learning. As a middle and high school science and math teacher for the past 14 years, I have helped hundreds of students overcome a dislike of math and science. I believe that if students can begin to gain confidence in their skills and see improvement, it can make a difference in their attitudes towards school. The best part of my job as a teacher was seeing kids who once struggled overcome their fear and anxiety and realize that they too can be successful.
In addition to teaching, I tutored many students during the evening and on weekends. I enjoy working with students and developing an understanding of what each individual needs to do to achieve success in their classes.
As a math teacher and tutor for the past 14 years, I have seen what it takes to be successful in math. The key to success in most classes in organization and practice, practice, practice. The first thing I do with any class I teach or student I tutor is develop a plan for organization. I always require my students to show all of their work and complete homework problems.
In addition to math, I also tutor chemistry. I have an undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Georgia Tech and a Master's degree from Georgia State in biochemistry. As with math, chemistry requires organization and lots of practice.
Please feel free to contact me. I would prefer to work in the evenings, but can arrange for additional times. I would love to work with you and help you meet your goals and have success in school.
Leanne is a former precalc teacher and seems to be exactly what my son needed! He has only had one session, but her experience as a teacher was a great help in analyzing what he was doing wrong and what he was doing right, and giving him tips on how to do well on the upcoming test...on which he got an A! It did wonders to improve his confidence in Honors precalc. Best part is that she is willing to stay in touch with us and check in to see if we need her services each week! It gives me peace of mind knowing that we can call on her the next time he needs some support.Tim, 6 lessons with Leanne
Excellent tutor. Patient and positive
Leanne helped my son with algebra two regents and ACT. She is very knowledgeable. Leanne broke down each question and simplified the learning process so that my son was able to fully understand while also being able to apply that knowledge to other questions. I should point out that he has special needs and Leanne gave him the most important support. She gave him the confidence and built his self esteem which made math more enjoyable and less frightening. Not only did he pass the math regents, but he is more determined to master the ACT exam. I highly recommend Leanne to anyone. She is the best!Ana, 18 lessons with Leanne

Patient, kind, and has great energy! My daughter liked her a lot!
Asked good questions to determine need and then knew where to dive in right away. My child was very nervous as this was her first time doing this but felt at ease with Leanne. Highly recommend her to others!Ellen, 3 lessons with Leanne

Great AP Bio Tutor
Leanne helped my daughter with prep for the AP Bio exam. She provided practice tests and was able to provide specific instruction. She was very accommodating with our schedule and even worked on the weekends. Test is tomorrow and my daughter feels much more prepay than when she started.Sharon, 4 lessons with Leanne
EOC Biology Review
Very patient with my high school student and she was great at pulling out key items to study and strategies for test taking such as how to focus on a key hint in the question and ruling out wrong answers first.Vickie, 23 lessons with Leanne
Leanne was amazing! Organized, clear, knowledgeable and patient. We will definitely be working with her again on algebra and geometry. I would recommend her to all students needing help in this area.Jessica, 14 lessons with Leanne
Incredible lesson. Patient and thorough!
Fantastic tutor, accessed my daughters level immediately. Leanne jumped right in and got working right away. Helped my struggling Algebra 1 student pick up and get going with both work and confidence. Patient and efficient and thorough. My daughter actually wants to work with Leanne over Spring Break I call that a huge win!! Thank you, Leanne!Karen, 7 lessons with Leanne
Leanne is superb!
Leanne was one the best Wyzant tutors - possibly the very best - that I have experienced in the almost 5 years of consistently utilizing Wyzant! I can’t say enough about her knowledge, creative enthusiasm, patience, and overall professionalism. I look forward to continuing sessions with her for my current Biology needs as well as a future Chemistry course that I will be taking this summer.Caitie, 3 lessons with Leanne
