About Leigh

Hello! I am a 5th grade teacher in Winchester, MA and I would love to help your child grow.

I have been teaching 5th grade for three years; previously I was a grant writer for a small non-profit organization. I live in Cambridge, but am originally from Western Mass. It is still where I refuel on organic vegetables and the stillness of the woods.

As an educator, I work collaboratively with families to identify opportunities for academic, social, and moral development, and guide students in working to achieve their goals. I believe in educating the whole child and the power positive relationships have on learning.

I am confident tutoring in all subjects in grades 2-6, and am especially passionate about reading and math. I have experience with a wide variety of curriculum resources used in school districts in Greater Boston and have a vast toolkit of innovative resources to help your child be successful. I tailor the curriculum and format of each tutoring session to each student to best meet his or her needs.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education (Lesley University, conferred May 2012) and a Massachusetts Teaching License for grades 1-6.
