About Leisa

Hello,

I have worked as a Kindergarten, Special Needs and Elementary school Parapro for over 12 years. I am currently a substitute teacher for all grade levels but what I enjoy the most is K-2nd. I have many creative resources to help children gain confidence and become excited about learning!

I was selected as Paraprofessional of the Year in my county and I have recently had a job as an Afterschool Director for a private school. This position allowed me to create lesson plans for K-4th that were enriching as well as structured under the Ga. Guidelines for standards.

At my previous elementary school we had a club called Math in the Morning and I was able to tutor young kids in a relaxed atmosphere, during breakfast in a fun way, without paper and pencil.

Being a Co- teacher for many years, you develop new techniques and attend workshops that offer an engaging point of view for students.

There are many lessons that can be introduced to kids that make learning fun and challenging at the same time. I am a fan of setting goals and rewarding hard work and dedication.

Spelling can be so much fun! It is amazing how many parts can go into one word. All my activities with spelling are engaging and hands on.

I am a mom of 3, and an empty nester. My kids were excellent and studious in high school and college. I have enjoyed working with kids in the education system for over a decade and I would love to use my spare time in teaching kids one on one. I enjoy coming up with creative lesson plans and interactive games to assist in the learning process. I look forward to working with you soon!

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.

Phonics

I have been a Co-Teacher in an elementary school setting working with Pre-K, Kindergarten, Special Needs and 4th grade (Inter-Related) for 12 years. During that time, I have taught using Fountas and Pinnell, A Beka, and Core Curriculum with Learner Standards. I have tutored students over the years in an afterschool enrichment setting. I have also been a part of various clubs that ensure and support student learning outside the classroom.
