About Leslie Elissa

Hello Potential Tutors!!

I am Mrs. N., and I know I can help you master science! In 1993 I graduated from FSU with a BS in chemistry and a BA in Science Education. I have taught various science courses throughout my 20 years of classroom teaching, focusing on Physics, Astronomy, and Chemistry. I have taught one on one classes, small groups, and large groups in both private and public schools. I have worked with home school students and tutored students from regular schools as well. I am gifted certified and have spent about 8 years teaching collaborative classes that contain large numbers of students who have IEPs. I know I can help you learn, no matter what your learning style or knowledge level!

I believe in all students. They may have different backgrounds, learning styles, experiences, or levels of education but all students can be reached and taught. It is just a matter of finding what works for that particular student. I am diligent about finding the method that will reach each individual student and support them along the way with positive reinforcement. I embrace different learning styles and work hard to forge meaningful relationships with my students. I want them to trust me so that I can help them believe in themselves, accomplish their goals, and flourish in difficult science subjects.

I have a myriad of ways to explain the different concepts and problems encountered in science. I teach problems solving skills that can be applied across the board. I create analogies and connect science to students' hobbies, sports, and everyday lives. The 20 years I have invested in classroom education has imparted me with the knowledge of how to explain almost anything to just about any one! I have even explained electron orbitals to my 4th grade daughter! (And she retains a good basic grasp on the concept.) I am helpful, approachable, kind, and understanding. I chose education because of the difference I can make in the lives of students. I thrive in an environment filled with a variety of people and activities. So tutoring you will be perfect for both of us!

I look forward to meeting you! Mrs. N.

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.

Astronomy

I have 5 years experience teaching astronomy at the high school level. I am passionate about space and all that it encompasses. I have a broad range on knowledge including the history of astronomy, our solar system, star classification and evolution, galaxies and clusters, as well as dark matter and dark energy. I am forever learning about astronomy as new discoveries are made all the time! It is absolutely fascinating!

Chemistry

My undergraduate degree was in chemistry and I have taught chemistry in the classroom for 5 years. I have multiple strategies to explain the different topics so if one doesn't work for you, I'll always have another way to explain the conceptual or mathematical chemistry. Since chemistry deals with extremely tiny things that are difficult to imagine, I will relate the subject matter to real life stuff that you have seen or experienced. I have tutored students on an individual basis throughout my 20 years of classroom education.

Physical Science

My 20 years in the classroom teaching chemistry and physics has imparted me with the knowledge of how to reach every student. I have multiple ways of explaining all the concepts and math problems in physical science (an introduction to physics and chemistry). I can help you to visualize all the super tiny aspects of chemistry and relate all the physics concepts to the world around you - your hobbies, sports, and other interests. I have tutored students on an individual basis throughout my years as a classroom educator. I know that I will be able to help you grasp all of physical science!

Physics

Physics is such a FUN subject to teach! It easily relates to real life and students' hobbies, sports, and activities. I have multiple ways to explain the concepts so if one way doesn't make sense, I have lots of other ways to explain things. I will teach you how to solve problems in general so that you will be able to work through new problems that you come across. I have tutored students on an individual basis throughout my 20 years of classroom education. I believe that anyone can learn physics!

Helped my daughter understand 8th grade science!

Leslie Elissa is an experienced teacher and Is knowledgeable . She wastes no time and jumps right in & was able my daughter understand concepts that I am unable to help with. My daughter responded well to her (which hasn't been the case with all tutors) and has helped her pull up her grade in just two sessions. Highly recommend!
