About Leslie

I have taught as a Classroom Teacher, Reading Specialist, Central Office Employee in Communication Skills for 20 years. Additionally, since 2005, I have been an Assistant Reading Adjunct Professor at Old Dominion University, having experience in face to face and online settings.

My teaching certification is active with the state of Virginia, having recently retired in June of 2014.

My knowledge of current pedagogy gleaned from the research in Reading, Response To Intervention, and ESL/ESOL classroom practices has cultivated an ability to impact the academic achievement of students.

My PhD provides a rich layer of core components blended with the research of SOL best practices for test-taking as well as higher level questioning.

Teaching TLED 468 (Language Acquisition) and Word Study at ODU University has developed an extensive knowledge of best practices for Phonics Development using Words Their Way and Ganske as resources.

I am a competent individual with a PhD in Literacy Leadership, Reading Specialist Certification and applied experience in the public school setting. I am hoping to engage in Tutoring for Elementary, Middle, or High School students needing assistance in reinforcement of skills or in test preparation.
