About Leanne

I graduated from Johns Hopkins University with degrees in International Studies and Writing Seminars. I am a professional freelance writer, editor and tutor. Most recently, I worked as an Elementary Tutor for Kearsarge Regional School District. As their tutor, I implemented a full elementary school curriculum for students who could not be in a classroom setting. I have just relocated to Nashville, TN and I am accepting new students. I offer evening and weekend times for convenience.

I'm a creative thinker who has experience tutoring students of all skill levels. I have worked with elementary school students through college students in subjects such as reading, writing, literature, sciences, and Spanish.

I believe that the most important part of tutoring is to recognize how a student learns and tailor all teaching to the student's learning style. I draw on my own experiences as a student and my time working with other students to design an effective system of tutoring.

Through high school I earned AP credit in English Literature, Spanish Language, Biology, Chemistry, Calculus AB, and Art History. I have extensive experience editing essays, school applications, and fiction.

I am patient, even-tempered, and focused. I truly enjoy working with students of all ages, and I look forward to the opportunity to share the knowledge I have gained in my life and education with others and to learn from others as I go.

I am able to offer references, including testimony from previous students I have tutored.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience tutoring students of all ages. In the past I have tutored students from age 5-12 in subjects as varied as Spanish, Reading, Math, Writing, Science, Study Skills, and History. I am currently working with a high school freshman who I tutored throughout her middle school career. My flexible and patient tutoring style emphasizes personalized learning as I understand that every person learns in his or her own way. In years of tutoring and horseback riding instruction for young students I have learned how to engage students in order to maintain their focus and encourage an interest in the subjects and in lifelong education.

Elementary Math

Successful history of helping students get up to grade level and maintain that progress.

English

Graduated from Johns Hopkins University with degrees in Writing Seminars (B.A.) and International Studies (B.A.) '14

Geometry

Many years experience tutoring high school geometry students with a proven record of success. My students show improved grades, increased confidence, and a stronger affinity for problem solving, which carries into other subjects.

Prealgebra

I have a successful history of helping students achieve their goals. Many of my middle school students continue to come to me for help throughout their high school careers.

Study Skills

I have extensive experience working with students on organization, test prep, and study habits. As a tutor for Kearsarge Regional School District, I worked with students who could not be in a typical classroom setting. In this position I was responsible for helping them complete their curriculum, designing assessments for them, and developing a learning plan with their parents for the days they were not in sessions. I have worked with students on test anxiety.
