About Leslie

Having recently relocated to Erie, PA I am pleased to offer tutoring services in English, science, math and herbalism to students of all ages.

As a practicing professional herbalist, I maintain a part-time clinical practice in Erie. I teach on a variety of subjects, on a part-time basis, with a focus on those above. Additionally, I'm an adjunct faculty member at two institutions, regularly teaching on-line and authored of Dental Herbalism: Natural Therapies for the Mouth, a 488 page guide that explores the mouth, herbs for the mouth and its daily care (published by Healing Arts Press).

I hold a B.Sc in environmental science, a PhD in biological sciences and am TEFL certified. I enjoy teaching a much as I enjoy learning and seem to have a facility for being able to approach topics from a variety of perspectives while fostering a sense of ease and accomplishment.

I've lived in many places, both within the States and abroad and combine European learning styles with curricula objectives to make learning a relaxed and meaningful experience, meeting students wherever they are in their subject materials and working with them to help them achieve their objectives.

I offer lessons face-to-face. These can be held at any number of locations in and around Erie as well as in a variety of on-line environments including SKYPE, FACETIME or ZOOM.

I look forward to working with you. I'm happy to answer any questions that you may have before we begin working together.
