About Lea

Hello! My name is Lea and I am a professional tutor. I believe that students learn best when instruction is individualized. I am permanently certified in Kindergarten through 6th Grade by the state of New York.

I taught kindergarten English language arts and social studies in the Bronx. It was there that I discovered how unique each child is, and how vital it is to respect their style of learning. Students need to understand how their own mind works in order to be successful and independent learners. A solid foundation of literacy skills is absolute key to academic success in any subject. Hope to hear from you soon!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified by NY State to teach Pre-K-Grade 6. I have a Master's In K-12 Education and a Bachelor's in Elementary Education with a concentration in English. For three years, i taught 6th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies for NYC Schools. I believe that children can be successful learners when they are self-aware, and understand their own unique learning style. Therefore, the focus of my teaching is metacognitive thought. Once a student has a solid grasp on their own thought processes and learning patterns, they can become independent learners, and gain the confidence they need to achieve excellence in any academic subject.
