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 a Masters student in Biology. 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!

Elementary (K-6th)

For elementary level education qualifications, I teach Vacation Bible School to elementary level children every year. I spent three months teaching elementary art classes as an intern. I was also a volunteer baby sitter for the Army National Guard, where I spent time teaching children reading skills. My educational background includes a holistic education in high school, which fostered educational programs such as big brother big sister and tutoring programs where I experienced teaching and tutoring students on the elementary level. I am also in the process of pursuing my masters degree in biology, so that I can teach science in schools and on the collegiate level.

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. As a soon to be masters student, 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!
