About Leona

Hello, My name is Leona. I am a licensed Civil Engineer, and I love helping others to succeed.

My strength is in Math. However, I am fully qualified to tutor several elementary school, middle school, high school, and college courses. I also tutor in preparation for the ACT, ASVAB, GED, GRE, OAT, SAT, and TEAS exams; and my students have had great success!

I am very patient, flexible, and have mentored and tutored students for 25+ years.

If you are interested, I can meet with you at a local library. I look forward to working with you!

Thank you,
Leona

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.

AFOQT

I am a licensed Civil Engineer, and have taken and passed the required Reading, Math, Science, English, and Language usage criteria to effectively tutor for the AFOQT exam.

In addition, I've tutored several students for the ASVAB exam, and my last student scored a 96 out of 100!

Study Skills

I have successfully completed Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and College, and have learned very thorough study methods.

In addition, I am very detailed-oriented and organized.

While tutoring the subject material, I will incorporate study methods to be followed and maintained.

She was able to explain complex material clearly, and made subjects, previously difficult for my son, ...
