Introduction: **PLEASE NOTE 😊 I LIVE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA **Thank you for looking at my profile. I’ve become quite adept at tutoring online with Zoom. It is my desire to be of service during these challenging times. **Please Note- I live in Southern California. TEACHING/TUTORING I believe that every child can learn and it’s my passion to find the best way to make that possible. I have an educational specialist teaching credential and over 20 years of experience getting to help children learn. I specialize in elementary school English language arts (I am a reading specialist) and mathematics. I am a private tutor as well as teaching reading in small groups at a private school. I don’t believe that there is a one size fits all approach to teaching. I differentiate/modify my instruction for each individual student’s specific needs. I have professional ABA training and experience with special needs, ESL, and kids who are “stuck/behind.” Thank you, Leslie Excellent references available. *I have LiveScan clearance with the DOJ and the state of California* PET CARE I’ve cared for and had animals my whole life. I just adopted two new rescue kitties- now I have three! I will love and care for your pets as if they were my own. I specialize in affection, clean litter boxes, and poop-scooping! I’ve administered medications and adhered to specialized diets. I’ve cared for many kinds of animals including; reptiles, rodents, birds, chickens, fish, dogs, and cats.

Leslie has been great to work with helping our 8 year old daughter improve her reading skills. She makes the lessons fun and our daughter looks forward to her Zoom meetings. She has and continues to be a great tutor, we appreciate her and highly recommend her services.

Leslie was awesome to work with. Very responsive and followed all directions well! Best part is that she is flexible and lives very close to me. I’m happy to use her again in the future

Leslie responded to us immediately and came for an initial interview to get the details about our dog Kingston. She was very thoughtful and took notes about his feedings and walking schedule. The days she watched after our dog, she sent texts with videos and pictures regularly which we looked forward to seeing being we were gone for 9 days. It was such a huge relief to know that our dog was happy and loved . We will for sure use Leslie again when needed. Thank You so much 😊

Leslie was the first cat caretaker we had (and needless to say we were quite nervous about leaving our fur babies!). She did an amazing job in taking car of them and really listened and answered all of our many questions. As luck would have it, an ant infestation arrived when we were on vacation and Leslie promptly alerted us to it and took care of of them. She even had some tricks for making sure ants wouldn’t get the kitty food! We would 100% use Leslie again and highly recommend her 😊

Reading and Writing Tutoring

I can’t express how thankful I am for finding Leslie! COVID, distance learning, and working-from-home were HUGE challenges for me and my family. Like a god-send Leslie has assessed my daughter, structured lessons from where my daughter is to where she should be, and used her own time to create tools and resources for me to use in-between sessions. Leslie is the WHOLE package! She’s returned my faith in that my child can catch up where she’s falling behind and even excel. That’s really helpful when you’re feeling helpless. I thought my daughter might have lost the whole year, I could not get her engaged and felt like I was doing most of the work myself. Leslie’s not just teaching my child, she’s teaching me how to teach my child. These are valuable life skills all parents can use. I highly recommend signing up with Leslie but not Thursday’s at 3p EST because that’s when I got her! Leslie has gotten my child to engage and be enthusiastic about learning again during these isolating days of quarantine. And that my friends, is priceless.
