About Leah


Bio

I am a "jack of all trades" tutor with the quality of a specialist. I specialize in high school and college level math, but have tutored grade school reading and math and high school science as well. I help with test prep, including GRE and SAT prep. My background is extensive--I graduated salutatorian of my high school class, am a member of Alpha Sigma Nu--Jesuit Honors Society, and I hold both a degree in engineering from Loyola College in Maryland and a Masters in the Art of Teaching...

I am a "jack of all trades" tutor with the quality of a specialist. I specialize in high school and college level math, but have tutored grade school reading and math and high school science as well. I help with test prep, including GRE and SAT prep. My background is extensive--I graduated salutatorian of my high school class, am a member of Alpha Sigma Nu--Jesuit Honors Society, and I hold both a degree in engineering from Loyola College in Maryland and a Masters in the Art of Teaching from Towson University. It only took a year as an engineer to realize that, while I was a good engineer, it was not my passion. I became a high school math teacher and taught for 3.5 years--until the birth of my son in 2010. Now I continue that passion through tutoring.

I have been tutoring for 7 years. I love inspiring students to do their best, and I enjoy working with the wide age range that I have been privileged to work with. I have tutored Kindergartners, grade-school children, teens, and adults and have been successful with and enjoyed every age group.

My tutoring style can be summed up in one word: passion. I have a lot of energy and joy with which I deliver my lessons. I am about as patient a person as you can find and also very positive. My educational background and experience both as a personal tutor and tutor for leading tutoring companies in the area show that I have more to bring to the table than just a great personality.

I can't wait to be the difference you've been waiting for. Do not hesitate to contact me! I look forward to working with you.

GRE

GRE

I have tutored the "new" GRE several times over the past several years and have become proficient in explaining the very difficult GRE-level math in a way that is easy to understand. I also frequently tutor the verbal and writing sections, helping students to craft high scoring essays and honing their tricks of the trade on the verbal section.

Statistics,

Statistics

Statistics is one of my favorite subjects to tutor as well as my most frequently requested. I know that it can be a "foreign language" to many students--math is tricky to begin with and stats is different than any other math you will take. I am able to explain statistics in a way that weeds out the "math talk" and makes it simple to understand.

Great Pre-Calculus tutor

My son had his first lesson with Leah last week, and he thought she was great. In one hour, he learned what would have taken at least a week in school. He is looking forward to his next session.

Kathy, 6 lessons with Leah

Knowledge and wonderful young lady!

Leah went over some algebra problems. She did a fantastic job and I hope that she will be able to assist me again in the future. Leah was kind and patient with me. I did remind her that I had been out of school for 40+ years and she didn't mind taking additional time with me during our session. Leah is wonderful and I would love to work with her again.

Patricia, 6 lessons with Leah

Leah was a great help!

Leah helped me prepare for my math final in Precalculus at UMBC. She was supportive and explained everything in a step-by-step sequence. She was very patient with me.

I needed major help with Biostatistics, she is awesome! I wish she was the instructor. She does an awesome job of explaining and demonstrating how to solve the problem. She knows how to make thing a lot easier than the classroom

Yolanda, 4 lessons with Leah

Excellent, knowledeable, patient, understanding and a supportive tutor

Leah is great! She has a thorough understanding of statistics and in one session helped me immensely. She has a knack for making you realize you actually know more than you think you do. She has a supportive style of tutoring, and you immediately feel comfortable and know she knows her subject matter and can definitely help you no matter where you are with the subject matter. She can meet you where you are at on the learning curve.

Venus, 4 lessons with Leah

Knowledgeable and knows how to teach!

Leah helped me get through one of the toughest classes in my academic career: Nursing Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins University. I am grateful for the schedule flexibility, expertise and sense of humor. It made a huge difference in the trajectory of my GPA. She's awesome!

RaeGina, 4 lessons with Leah

Great Tutor with Lots of Experience

She could easily pick out where things were difficult for me and helped me understand them. I enjoyed working with her. As a grad student, she also helped make the complicated areas of Biostats easy.

Kemba, 2 lessons with Leah

Help with Biostats

Leah is very helpful and understands stats and can help explain the material in a way you can understand.

Maggie, 6 lessons with Leah

great tutor.

She worked well with my daughter and had a great way of teaching geometry. She was professional and responsible. She was on time and accomplished a lot. My daughter felt like she came away with a good understanding for her upcoming test.
