Introduction: **PLEASE NOTE: I LIVE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA **Thank you for looking at my profile. I’ve recently become quite adept at online tutoring 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 happen. I have an educational specialist teaching credential and over 15 years of experience getting to help children learn. I specialize in elementary reading and math and currently teach reading and writing at a private school two days a week (hopefully they’ll reopen soon.) I also privately tutor children. I have professional ABA training and experience with special needs, ESL, and kids who are “behind.” 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 is very professional and great with animals! My kitties tend to be shy around new people, but they responded well to Leslie. Her reliability, flexibility with visit times, availability at short notice and her natural ability with animals all made my vacation time stress free for me and my kitties. I'll be calling Leslie for all my future pet-sitting needs! Highly recommended!

Leslie is a very nice woman and took fantastic care of our two doggies while we were out of town. We trusted her to use our house key to visit one-hour a day with the doggies and she sent pictures everyday to let us know they were very well taken care of. We will definitely hire her again and highly recommend her puppy-sitting services.

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.

Leslie did a great job taking care of my temperamental chihuahua. She kept us in the loop with texts and pictures and worked with us when we needed to add additional visits. She is a dog whisperer and My dog loves her. Don’t hesitate hiring Leslie to take care if your needs. She is a professional.
