About Leslie

I am currently entering into my 8th year of teaching. I have four children of my own and know that getting a child to a tutor is tough. I want to make this experience not only beneficial but fun for all! I will look at your child's interest and incorporate that into our time together!


I have been trained in the comprehension toolkit and Fontas and Pinnell. I know the skills that it takes to provide comprehension strategies for all learners to become more thoughtful and active readers.

I have been working closely with colleagues to unpack the standards so I have a better understanding of what is required of all students.

Having been in the elementary setting for the past 7 years, I feel that I have seen the many changes that are required of all students. The expectations for these students are challenging and daunting and I hope my experience can ease these challenges.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Common Core

I have been teaching for 7 years and have taken graduate level courses in teaching to the Common Core. I also have had professional development in "unpacking the Common Core" to align the CCSS to our previous state standards and curriculum.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified to teach elementary education. I hold a MAT from UMASS Dartmouth and have been a classroom teacher for 7 years. I have taken an additional 13 graduate classes in all subject matters in order to hone my skills and learn how to differentiate for all students.
