Hello!

My name is Leia and I graduated from the Australian National University with a double bachelors degree in Science majoring in Psychology and Arts majoring in Sociology. I will be attending Harvard in the fall to continue my studies. When living in Australia I tutored kids from K-12 in English, Math or Science and really enjoyed helping out and getting to see my students achieve what they set out to. I love getting to know my students so that I can help them understand what they are learning and in a way that makes the most sense to them. Not everyone learns things in the same way, so in my experience the best thing to do is focus on how each person learns and use their strengths to their advantage. I am personally a visual learner and benefit from graphics or tangible examples.

As I mentioned previously, I've worked as a tutor before (for 4 years) for a company called big improvements tutoring. The main focus of the company was to boost the confidence of kids who found school to be challenging, so that kids became more motivated and happy doing school work. I worked with kids as young as 7 all the way through to 18-year-old seniors in high-school. Some of the kids I worked with struggled with dyslexia, Irlen Syndrome, ADHD or anxiety. Once kids gained confidence dealing with school work, it was easy to improve upon skills in certain areas that they found more difficult that others, and made them happy to come to tutoring sessions. I tutored English, whether it be learning the alphabet and phonetics to writing essays and research papers. I also tutored math, from learning to count for the younger kids to algebra and trigonometry/geometry for those in high-school.

For a little bit about my own education, I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and received first class honors for my thesis, which I hope to get published in a psychological journal very soon. I spent a year conducting my own research which included planning and structuring my experiment, obtaining participants, collecting data, analyzing the data and then writing up my 12,000 word thesis. So I have experience with report writing and researching.

Most of my work experience is with younger children, but I am happy to help all ages. As a psychology major, my other work experience was as an ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) Therapist implementing early autism intervention to children aged 2 - 6. Therapy was mainly play based, as children learn best in a play situation, and focused on speech and social skills. From this experience I gained a lot of patience and problem solving skills.

I really enjoy helping people achieve their goals, and I'm not happy until you are! So I work hard to make sure that you feel comfortable with what you need help with and that if something isn't working I'll figure out a new way to approach it so that it all makes sense. I am happy to answer any questions you might have, please don't hesitate to contact me!

I tutored English for 4 years with a tutoring company, working with kids from K-12. As such, I taught simple reading and spelling to my younger students and focused more on essay structure, different styles of writing (comparative, argumentative, persuasive etc) and critical analysis of text with high school aged students. I have also received a double bachelors degree in Arts and Science so I first hand experience writing essays and reports in English.
