About LeShante

Hello!
I am a private tutor with a BS in Biology, and I have been tutoring in various forms since 2007. I specialize in College Freshman Biology. All of my students have seen their test scores increase on the following test. Yes, ALL of them, as in
Every. Single. One.

I also happen to be a self published author and my work has been read around the world. In addition to creative writing, I am WyzAnt certified to tutor Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Biology, SAT Reading, SAT Writing, SAT Math, Study Skills, Test Prep, Reading, Elementary subjects, and more at the elementary, middle school, high school and college levels.

But enough about me.

When I work with my students, I spend time getting to know their learning and note taking styles, how they study best and what their goals are for each subject. It is incredibly essential to do this with my students because I want them to have a personal connection with me and learn from my experience as we unlock their potential together.

I have been through a child safety class provided by the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo NY, and a CPR/AED class from the American Heart Association.

I look forward to working with each of my students. Your success is waiting.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

I am a graduate of Canisius College in Biological Sciences and I have tutored biology before and even helped my student bring her grade up 20 points on the next test with only a few hours of study together. I'm really excited about biology and teaching it to you!

Reading

Read a lot of scientific articles, and got high grades in all my English classes throughout high school and college. Reading is a huge part of writing, and in order to hone one's skills as a writer, one must be a avid reader. Scored a 620 in SAT critical reading, in the 83rd percentile.

Study Skills

I believe I am qualified to tutor in study skills because of the rigor that my degree in premedical biology required. I am confident in my ability to asses a class and come up with a method of study that is uniquely tailored for success. I have been tutoring since high school and have been constantly adding to my repertoire of study techniques and have passed these successful techniques on to my students who, once having applied the techniques have seen dramatic increase in their grades. My specific tutoring method varies from student to student and is heavily rooted in individualized consultation, taking advantage of such things as; acronyms, flash cards, note taking, text reading, and relationship to everyday experiences.

Writing

Self published authoress, has distributed copies of her work world wide! Former correspondent to NeXt, the magazine written by teens for teens, of the Buffalo News. I love writing, and communicating through the English language. Let me help you make your papers a success!

She's wonderful!

LeShante G. was really patient with me and worked with me to refine my essay into something I can be proud of. I really enjoyed our session and greatly benefited from it. I would definitely work with her again. I was very anxious going into our session but came out of it much more confident! Thank you so much LeShante!
