About Leza

I have been a private tutor for elementary age children for several years. Also for the past 15 years I have been employed by an elementary school as a special needs aide. I have experience with re-teaching all subjects including: reading, phonics, spelling, math, science, and social studies, also teaching study skills and test prep.

I am very comfortable and skilled at working with special needs children. Most of my current and past students have special needs including, Asperger's, Autism, ADHD, behavioral problems, and other learning difficulties. On a personal level, I am a mother of two sons. Both of my boys are currently attending college. I have taught Sunday school, VBS, and was involved in both Cub Scouts and Boys Scouts for over 14 years.

Through my employment I have attended several workshops for language art skills and have acquired many professional development hours.

I have 100 plus hours of professional development hours and a degree in child psychology. I have been employed as a special needs aide for 15 years. In that time I have become experienced in the different educational needs of children and ways to teach to those needs. I am also trained in Applied Behavior Analyses (ABA); with over 80 professional training hours.

I have always enjoyed teaching and working with children. I know there are different ways to teach and learn, so I use several different approaches based on a student's needs
