About Leslie

At present, I am a full time college student working towards a degree in Biology with a minor in English Literature. My long term goal is to be accepted into a joint MD/JD degree program that would allow me to both practice as a physician as well as legally advocate on public policy issues concerning health care reform. I previously completed some undergraduate coursework at Georgetown University before recently moving back to NJ to attend Union County College.

My passion for literature is one that has been cultivated since I was a young reader and extends beyond my personal fondness of the written word; my goal is two-fold: first, to aid today's youth in rediscovering the vast treasures held within books in an age of omnipresent technology, as well as to aid the growing number young students who may be struggling in English/Writing in an effort to ameliorate the nation's falling literacy rate for elementary and middle school students.

While I am new to WyzAnt, I am no stranger to tutoring. I've had informal experience (10+ years ) tutoring peers since I was in middle school, and I've graciously had the experience of tutoring elementary school students at the urban Paradise-Parkside Community Center as a part of the DC Reads Program I engaged in during my brief undergraduate stint at Georgetown University.

My strengths include the subjects of English Composition, Language Arts, Reading, and Essay Writing for student success in both school and the SAT/ACT examinations.

I try to be as flexible as possible with my time but, being that I am still a full time student myself, I have a minimum 24 hour cancellation policy. I am able offer makeup lessons should cancellations arise.

Thank you so much for taking the time to peruse my profile. I hope you've been able to get a good sense of the skills I am able to bring to the table as well as a deep understanding of how much English means to me. Spreading knowledge and wisdom regarding the joys of literature goes beyond passion--it has become my purpose and I would be honored to have the chance to share that with you all.
