About Leslie

I am a career teacher and tutor - 33 years' worth, who is a firm believer that any student can learn well if his interest is captured by the subject at hand. Although I adhere to many of the "old school" forms of teaching and its expectations of striving for excellence, I have modified my methods to soften the edges, as it were, and make the learning experience much more interactive and enjoyable. I have learned that students learn better, retain and can apply more of what they learn if they are aware of the subject at hand's relevance in the larger scope. Of course, there is nothing wrong with enjoying the experience at the same time!

I encourage all the "kids" under my tutelage to be the very best they can be, rather than to try to be a second-rate someone else. Each student is unique and precious, and it is my privilege to help determine each one's particular talents and gifts.
