About Leighanna

I first realized that I wanted to be a teacher while I was in the third grade. Since that time my love of teaching has only gotten stronger and my dream to help young students has become a reality. As a recent college graduate with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a concentration of Psychology; I understand and have practiced the art of teaching. Helping students understand their academic material and achieve their goals is an honor. My past experience as a student teacher and working with students in other academic venue's has taught me so much about how different people learn and I will use that knowledge to help future students excel in their academic careers.

I have chosen to tutor elementary and middle school students in a variety of subjects because I know that students who are successful when they are young have more self confidence in school and a greater chance of being a successful college graduate. The subjects I specialize in include all elementary school subjects and middle school math, social studies,reading, and writing.

I understand that life is not always predictable so I only require six hours of notice before cancelling a session. If there is a situation in which you did not cancel within that time frame however I will be available to make up the session.

I am willing to drive up to an hour away for tutoring sessions. As I do not have an office or a specific location to hold these sessions I am willing to drive to your home or any public library.

I am looking forward to hearing from all of my future students! Together we can work towards a stronger education and a successful academic career.

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 Math

My student teaching experiences started during my junior year of college. During these experiences I had many opportunities to work with individual students on their math skills. The teachers that mentored me often asked me to work with specific students that were struggling with their schoolwork. I understand that these subjects can be very tricky and some students can get frustrated, but I have gained a lot of strategies throughout these experiences that help me communicate the material to students in ways that are easy to understand.
