Experienced and organized tutor

Leslie has been helping my 4th grader with her reading for several months. My daughter has made great progress and has essentially closed her reading gap. When searching for a tutor I was looking for someone with advanced literacy training and experience. Leslie certainly has that and more. Leslie is very organized and runs her lessons in a very structured manner using both online tools and printed material. I am grateful for Leslie and the support she is providing my daughter.

Great Orton Gillingham Tutor!

My son is making so much progress in reading thanks to Leslie! He is also happy to have lessons with her which is an amazing added bonus. We look forward to continuing through the summer.

Margaux, 109 lessons with Leslie

Very friendly and knowledgeable.

In just three lessons Leslie W. has developed a positive rapport with my 12 year old. He is excited about his lessons with her and I don't have to fight him to get his tutoring homework done. Leslie really knows how to connect with her students in a short period of time!
