About Leisa

10 years teaching experience in a public school setting; 13 years experience as an active home schooling mom (of my own children, my oldest son passed the ASVAB with a high enough score where he was able to pick the job that he wanted when he enlisted into the military; my oldest daughter has just completed her 2nd year at Walter State Community College in Morristown.

I am also home schooling our 5 younger children, ranging from K through 10 - have tutored the children of other home schooling families; am willing to travel within a 45 mile radius of Bean Station, Tennessee.

I am willing to tutor your child either in your own home, or at a public library - whichever is easiest for you, the parent.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Special Needs

Taught special education at Lamar County Board of Education in Barnesville, Ga. for a period of 6 years. Prior to that, I taught the same at Ware County Board of Education in Waycross, Ga. (home of the Okefenokee Swamp). Additionally, I worked very extensively with at-risk students in the Lamar Co. area through an after-school program.

During my tenure at both schools, I developed a teaching style that students found both enjoyable and beneficial. I spearheaded the Community-Based Educational Program in Ware County. This was a difficult program to initiate. But, once it was off the ground, my students blossomed into beautiful flowers as a direct result of this program.

My heart is with the children who tend to fall between the cracks; the ones who score too high to receive special ed services, but just can't seem to grasp the most basic of concepts required to maintain a passing grade in regular ed classrooms. In my mind, it is these students who most desperately need the help, but due to their "passing grades" do not qualify for the services they so desperately need.
