I am your one stop tutoring resource from high school through medical school.

I am a full-time private educator and science tutor. My background includes a dual degree in Chemistry and Biology, and reserve military service including a tour to the Middle East. I have nearly a decade of experience tutoring students in the sciences from high school level up to college and beyond. I offer private one on one and group sessions.

My students show remarkable improvement after just a few lessons and my steady students have scored top in their classes on exams and standardized tests.

My method of tutoring is based around understanding rather than just knowing. I believe that if I show a student the correct answer they may know it for now, however, if I show the student how to derive the answer by understanding and applying the underlying principles then the student will be able to solve similar and more difficult problems on their own.

In my years of tutoring I have picked up a number of tricks, shortcuts, and funny mnemonics to help students better learn and remember the information. I also use sketches, diagrams, and science models where needed.

Genetics,

Genetics

Genetics is yet another fascinating puzzle in the field of biology. I can help you unravel the mysteries of DNA structure and function, Transcription and Translation, how to properly draw and calculate a punnet square. I can explain to you the methods used to understand DNA including PCR and how and why it works. I will also help you make sense of any homework or lab problem so that you not only arrive at the correct solution, but also help you understand the results so that you can interpret future problems on your own.
Microbiology,

Microbiology

I have a background in biology and chemistry, and have been tutoring Microbiology at the college level for nearly a decade include private tutoring and teaching at the college. I will help you understand the ins and outs of micro, and help you review any related biology/genetics to ensure that you understand the why and how of the material in question
Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

Organic chemistry is like a puzzle, quite unlike the mathematical Chemistry that orgo students are typically used to. I have been tutoring organic chemistry for the past few years with great results. I use diagrams, drawings and models to help students understand the reason behind the mechanisms, explain why atoms react the way they do, and pretty much how to put it all together. In addition to private tutoring I have over 170 YouTube videos. My background includes a dual degree in Chemistry and Biology.

Test Preparation

ASVAB,

ASVAB

I am a US Navy Veteran having served in the Middle East back in 2010. I scored in the top percentile on my ASVAB (93) and was therefor eligible for nearly EVERY JOB within the Navy. I will be happy to help you achieve similar goals. With a strong background in the sciences, and first hand knowledge of MEPs, ASVAB and the military in general, I will provide you with all the tools you need to ace the ASVAB, talk to your recruiter, and help you plan your ASVAB strategy. The ASVAB is a test of concepts, knowledge, and test taking skills. I will teach you the required material, give you homework and study tips, and teach you the tricks of how to answer even the questions you are unsure of. I have worked with over a dozen students this year alone, helping them pass their exam and prepare for bootcamp. (See my feedback for student references)
MCAT,

MCAT

Pre-Med students. The Medical College Admission test may be the most important standardized exam you take in helping determine your future. The exam not only tests your understanding of the sciences you have slaved away to learn the past few years, it also tests your ability to decipher the questions being asked, and applying the knowledge in a unique and new manner. I will help you prepare for the exam by ensuring that you have a solid scientific foundation, helping you apply shortcuts and techniques to the posed questions, and showing you how to approach the exam with winning results.
Regents,

Regents

As a science and math tutor for nearly a decade, I have helped dozens of students prepare for and enter their regents exams with knowledge and confidence. I will teach you (or your children) the subject material required for the specific regents, and I will also help you with regents strategy and how to make the best of your study and preparation.

Very good

Leah only spent an hour with my son. He is trying to get into the Navy. He said she taught him a couple of tricks that will help him on the asvab. Will repost after the test.

Good tutor, my daughter passed her chemistry test.

I sent my daughter to Leah on 5/2/13 to help her with chemistry after the lesson my daughter told me she began to understand it better. Today (5/8/13) she came home from school with her chemistry test and yes she passed the test, not bad after 1 session with Leah. Keep up the good work!

Fabulous Tutor!

My daughter is a college freshman who was struggling with organic chemistry. In her first tutoring session with Leah, she learned more than her professor had taught her in 3 months! My daughter said that she explained it in such a way that it was so easy for her to learn the material! Thank you Leah! We look forward to more successful tutoring sessions in the future!

Great tutor!

I had my first tutoring class today and I thought that Leah was an excellent tutor! She was a very straight forward woman who knew a ton of tricks to help teach me about my math. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and I will definitely be getting tutored by her again! She was a pleasant woman to deal with and helped me out a lot. I look forward to learning more from her.
