Bio

Hello, everyone! I have been a tutor on WyzAnt for 10 years, and I was also employed for two years as tutor for high school students at a school district. Currently, I specialize in pre-nursing classes, including Anatomy and Physiology 1 and 2, Microbiology, and General Chemistry 1 (or Introductory Chemistry). In addition, throughout my time as a tutor for WyzAnt, I have helped pre-nursing students with the nursing entrance exams: the HESI A2 and the ATI TEAS. I have personally taken the ATI...

Hello, everyone! I have been a tutor on WyzAnt for 10 years, and I was also employed for two years as tutor for high school students at a school district. Currently, I specialize in pre-nursing classes, including Anatomy and Physiology 1 and 2, Microbiology, and General Chemistry 1 (or Introductory Chemistry). In addition, throughout my time as a tutor for WyzAnt, I have helped pre-nursing students with the nursing entrance exams: the HESI A2 and the ATI TEAS. I have personally taken the ATI TEAS test and especially the HESI A2 (so I definitely know what's expected of these tests)! (Please refer to my subject descriptions for the TEAS to see more details). I also gained medical experience via taking an EMT-Basic class in 2014. I was a volunteer EMT in 2018 and 2019 which helped provide real-life applications of anatomy and physiology.
I still am more than willing to help high school students in a wide range of subjects (both regular and Pre-AP Honors) including anatomy and physiology, microbiology, biology, chemistry, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and English I-IV (Pre-AP for only English I and II).

I graduated from University of Houston Victoria with a Bachelor's in Criminal Justice. I had planned on using my bachelor's degree to get into a second-degree BSN program (which is why I have experience in pre-nursing courses and nursing entrance exams). However, I decided to pursue a different medical degree. I want to help students using my experiences with the TEAS and HESI A2 and pre-nursing courses to help them achieve their dreams of nursing school.

I prefer working with individual students. I get to know each student individually and use their personality preferences and interests to find interesting analogies to help them comprehend difficult concepts. I break information down into the simplest terms possible and give them helpful tips on how to remember and retain information.

English

I took Pre-AP English I and II from a top Fort Bend school and made A's in English for all four years of high school English. Throughout those four years, especially my junior and senior year, I helped many of my classmates during the research and writing process. I've also taken English in college and made A's. At my professional job at F.B.I.S.D., I tutor in all four levels of English, including Pre-AP and AP English. I love to edit, revise, and review papers constructively to improve grammar, vocabulary, flow, organization, and structure. This is one of the subjects I love to tutor in because it's exciting and interesting to read the styles of each individual and to help them write and analyze a beautiful paper.

Algebra 1

I have tutored high school students in Algebra 1 for four years! I earned A's in Algebra 1 in high school and consistently helped my friends obtain A's on tests by helping explain concepts to them. I believe Algebra 1 is the best math subject I can tutor, since I believe I have mastered it fully through both my experience as a tutor and my rigorous coursework during high school.
Biology,

Biology

During high school when I first took Biology, I absolutely adored the class and learning everything about the biological world around me. My classmates often sought my help because of my thorough understanding of the material and I was glad to help them. I finished the class with a high "A". When I entered college and took General Biology, I enjoyed learning even more about the subject. I finished my General Biology I class also with an "A". I have such a passion for Biology- I understand it in detail and I love learning new things about it every single day. I teach many students in Biology and I enjoy drawing diagrams, giving lots of examples, and having a little fun while I'm teaching it to them.

Chemistry is another fascinating subject to me and I have always enjoyed the Chemistry courses I have taken in high school and college. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring my students all levels of chemistry from elementary school science to General Chemistry I.

Patient and very intelligent tutor

Leah goes a good speed through the information so that you can really understand it! She also uses really helpful memory devices to help you learn the concept easier! I would recommend her to anyone who needs a patient, kind, and very intelligent tutor for the TEAS.

Knowledgeable, Patient, and Dedicated Tutor

I have had about 5+ sessions with Leah studying for the TEAS and she is an amazing tutor. She is very patient during our calls and always helps when I have specific questions about different topics. She is quick to respond to any messages that I send her, she sends the notes we are going to go over before our sessions to help me prepare, and sends lots of practice questions/homework after the lesson. I look forward to our sessions and definitely feel that the hard work will pay off.
