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! Hello!

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 sessions, she also provides a concise summary of her lesson and any tips for future tests, etc. We could not be any more pleased with a tutor. Leslie has exceeded all our expectations. From a personal perspective, we have also found her to be friendly and enjoyed our time with her.
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.
