About Leslie

Hello!

My name is Leslie and I am currently a first year medical student at the Chicago Medical School of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. In 2011 I graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Brandeis University with a double major in biology and chemistry. While there, I worked as a teaching assistant for the organic chemistry lecture course for 4 semesters, and the general chemistry lab course for 2 summer semesters.

I remember in high school I was very intimidated by my science courses and even applied to college with the intention of majoring in English. Upon exploring science further in college though, I realized how amazing and rewarding it was to break down a complex subject and truly understand it. I'd love to share this amazing experience with students. I find teaching to be an absolute joy and I truly believe that there is ALWAYS a way to explain something so that the student can understand, no matter how difficult the subject is. It is just a matter of creativity!

One of my students at Brandeis has given me the following assessments in their course evaluations:

-"Leslie is always enthusiastic and willing to help any student that is having trouble. She is very knowledgeable and explained additional problems thoroughly"

I sincerely look forward to our journey together!

An invaluable resource! — Leslie is an invaluable resource for my high school sophomore daughter who is taking Chemistry this year. From the first meeting, my daughter felt comfortable with her and appreciated her patient manner and thorough explanations. My daughter has enjoyed the weekly sessions which serve as a way to review and answer questions about the new subject areas learned during the week. Following the session ...
