About Leah

I have worked with students of all ages and backgrounds and it is where I find joy. I have been a substitute teacher in the K-12 public school system, a tutor, counselor and yoga instructor. I graduated with honors with a bachelor's degree in International Studies and Sustainable Development from Appalachian State University. I also hold a master's degree in International Education from SIT Graduate Institute. I am creative, fun and can work with students at their level to help support and uplift them in their education needs.

I believe in teaching to students where they are at and know how to teach to their learning style. Every student is unique and I understand that we all don't learn the same. I can relate to your student and guide the lessons to be digestible and engaging for their particular needs. I believe in a student-centered approach to teaching. I coach and facilitate student learning and overall comprehension of material while putting the student as an active member of the learning process.

My career has been centered around education and has extended into many different roles and positions. I have tutored English language learners, developed curriculum for educational programs, taught and counseled at summer camps, been a nanny, served as a classroom aid for an elementary school, substitute taught K-12 and worked in education non-profit organizations. Coupled with an educational background in a variety of subjects and disciplines I have a unique background that shapes my teaching style.These experiences have instilled in me adaptability, creativity and patience while tutoring.

In addition to my degrees I also hold certifications in effective teacher training, kids yoga and trauma informed teacher training. I travel often (to only areas that have excellent internet service due to my husband's job) so am mainly based in online tutoring format. However, If I I am in your area I am willing to do in person sessions as well. Students find me helpful, engaging, fun and relaxed while we work together. I tutor in a range of subjects and hope to help you or your family find a partner in learning. If you are looking for a creative tutor that can connect with your student than look no further. I have a flexible schedule and can work with you and your student's unique needs. Good luck and I hope to hear from you!

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 been a substitute teacher and volunteer in the elementary school system. I tutored K-6 students as a volunteer in the public school system for a year. Most recently I worked with a newly relocated refugee student for a school year. I helped this particular English language learner student in reading, writing and math weekly. I have worked with elementary age students as a tutor, counselor and teacher throughout my career. I hold a 30 hour Effective Teacher Training certification through the local community college.

Yoga

I hold the following yoga teaching certifications; 200 hr Yoga Alliance teaching certification, National Exercise and Sports Trainers' Association yoga certification, kid's yoga teaching certification, advanced teacher leadership training certification, and a trauma informed yoga teacher training. I have ten years of yoga teaching experience to youth, adults and seniors of all ages and abilities. I currently run a nonprofit that teaches yoga to at-risk youth and under-served populations. I also have had a daily yoga practice for 15 years.
