An amazing tutor!
My son worked with Leslie several months three times a week. Leslie is an experienced tutor. Her knowledge and patience are amazing. Her way to deal with my son was really professional, always good attitude, always doing the best. My boy is much more self confident in his reading now.Katya, 58 lessons with Leslie
Ms. H is a very dedicated teacher and has taught my son multiple things from essay writing to vocabulary to grammar. Every week, my son learns more and more from her and he is now prepared for writing quizzes, reading comprehension and exams. Definitely, an awesome teacher if one is looking for help in writing and reading!Yukuan, 23 lessons with Leslie
soup to nuts in a matter of sessions
Having one's writings exposed is daunting. However, Leslie helped me overcome that feeling of being "married" to my work. She is diligent, empathetic and pushes her students to come to a deeper understanding of literature and English.Kimia, 24 lessons with Leslie
First tutor session was excellent!
My son had his first tutor session with Leslie and he really felt at ease with her positivity and encouragement. Leslie utilized part of the time testing Koen and the rest of the time playing a game and getting him more familiar with her.Danene, 3 lessons with Leslie
Great First Session
This was our first session with Leslie. It went very well. She made my son feel very comfortable and provided both he and I some great feedback and encouragement. He is looking forward to his next session. Thank you, Leslie!Susan, 32 lessons with Leslie

The Perfect Tutor - Experienced, Intuitive, Kind, Patient, and Flexible
My daughter is 10 years old and has always struggled with reading. She has had a reading tutor since she was 6 years old, and has made some progress. However, when her teachers thought she should be doing much better given the reading intervention services she received at school, we decided to have her tested for a reading disability. She now has a clinical diagnoses of both ADHD and dyslexia. We decided we needed to try a more evidenced-based approach to helping our daughter with reading, and went searching for a tutor specifically trained to work with dyslexic students. We found exactly what we were hoping for.....Leslie! Leslie is a seasoned elementary school teacher with expert knowledge working with children that are bright and motivated but just need things explained in a different way in order to learn. Leslie is trained to use the Wilson Method of Decoding and Encoding (WADE) which is approved by the International Dyslexia Association. As my daughter goes through each step in the process, she is more and more confident in her ability to sound out words, her reading pace has increased significantly, and her reading comprehension is allowing her to be curious and thoughtful rather than frustrated and angry. Her teachers have noticed a big change as well. Leslie tailors the tutoring session to fit my daughter's needs and mood, and always makes the learning fun. My daughter is tutored three days a week and loves to go and learn. It is really amazing how much my daughter has blossomed in the last 6 months since she has been tutored by Leslie. The process is challenging for her, but she no longer gets frustrated when she doesn't get it the first time. She feels very comfortable with Leslie, who seems to know when to motivate and when to try a different approach. Leslie also keeps in touch with my daughter's teachers so that her tutoring complements what she is learning in the classroom. She is always looking for ways to keep her engaged and using all her senses to learn. Our daughter is so much happier. We truly feel blessed to have found Leslie!Lisa, 320 lessons with Leslie
