My name is Leslie Strayer J., and I recently retired from teaching at GlenOak High School in Canton, Ohio. For 28 years I had a wonderful career teaching Spanish 2, Honors Spanish 3 and AP Spanish 4. Before beginning my teaching position I often tutored high school students, and a big part of my teaching career involved one on one instruction and interaction with my students. As a teacher I loved most helping students be successful and developing a love and appreciation for the Spanish language and culture. Before completing my Master's Degree I lived in Spain and I've enjoyed traveling to many Spanish speaking countries , including Mexico, Spain and Costa Rica.

Because of my experience teaching all levels of Spanish I can help with all areas of need including vocabulary study, advanced grammar, writing, reading texts (literature, essays, articles ) and conversation skills. My teaching certification also included English, and I can help with proofreading and developing and re working compositions or college essays. I really enjoy helping high school students with college admissions essays and applications as well.

I am a successful tutor because of my undergraduate Spanish nor at Bowdoin College and my long experience as a classroom teacher of upper level courses. I have recently been in the classroom so I have an understanding of what is required from students. I like working with young people and helping them understand the language. I lived in Spain and have spent time in many countries in the Spanish speaking world.

I studied English as an undergraduate at Bowdoin College, where I wrote many papers. Over the years I have working with many students on college essays and proofreading of compositions for English class.

I would love to help you be confident and successful in your Spanish studies or college applications ! I have a flexible schedule and can tutor most days and weekends. I miss being in the classroom and look forward to hearing from you so I can get back to doing what I love.
