About Leah

Hello! My name is Leah and I am dedicated to preparing children to have successful academic experiences. My full-time occupation is spent leading a group of curious first graders to develop the confidence and skills necessary to prosper in the classroom and beyond. Students are happiest at school when they are successful; in tutoring your child, I hope to help him/her develop a love for learning by extending or supplementing their academic growth through engaging and consistent tutoring .

I have experience teaching at grade levels K-8 and would be thrilled at the opportunity to get to know your child and discover what motivates them to be a life-long learner. Whether you are looking to maintain your child's academic growth through summer learning, or whether you want to provide your child with extra support during the school year, I am here to help!

I am a highly qualified elementary school teacher with a Master's in Elementary Education and am licensed to teach in MA. I have taught common-core aligned elementary school math at all grade levels (1-6), and am extremely motivated to make math learning accessible to all learners.

In addition to my Master's Degree, I am dually licensed in Elementary Education and English as a Second Language. I am currently employed as a first grade teacher in Somerville, MA and teach reading through a balanced approach to literacy developing incorporating both whole-language and phonics instruction.

I was a Spanish major in college and currently teach cohort of first-graders, many of which, speak Spanish as their first language.

I am a highly qualified elementary school teacher with a Master's in Elementary Ed. and am also dually licensed in Elementary Education and English as a Second Language. I have taught 4th and currently teach 1st grade in the Somerville Public School District.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or information! I hope to hear from you soon.
