About Leah

Nothing is more rewarding to me than watching the lights go on when a student gets it. I'm good at helping students make connections between concepts and information to facilitate true understanding, not just memorization. I have five years of teaching experience with students from ages 12 to 70, on topics ranging from English as a Second Language, history, music theory, world music and cultures, and private voice. My writing has appeared in local and national print and web venues. I can help you make your prose or poetry pop, or just proofread your social studies report. I find ways to help students experience small successes on their way to bigger goals, and I certainly feel that I learn at least as much from my students as they do from me!

I know how to rock standardized tests and I can help you master content and test taking strategies so you can do the same. My students frequently comment on both my patience and my enthusiasm. I aim to tailor my approach to your temperament and goals so you can succeed.

I currently teach ESL at a community college. I can help you with grammar, pronunciation, reading, writing, and speaking fluency. I know IPA.

I started college as an undergraduate Spanish major before switching to music. I studied through to fluency. I can coach your pronunciation and help you understand the ins and outs of the grammar.

I'm centrally located in southern Alamance County and can easily travel to Carrboro/Chapel Hill, Pittsboro, Saxapahaw, Graham, Mebane, and Hillsborough.

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.

English

I just completed a year of teaching English as a Second Language in North Carolina. I completed the training for North Carolina's ESOL Specialty certificate. I have experience teaching reading, writing, and conversation. I'm especially good at helping English language learners with pronunciation.

Music History

I completed a M.M. in vocal performance and taught the undergraduate Music History Survey course at North Dakota State university, Spring 2013 semester. I completed three semesters of graduate coursework in musicology at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I led recitations in music history, music appreciation, world music, and sight singing. I graded papers, helped students review for tests, and provided one-on-one mentoring during office hours.
