I would highly recommend Diana for help with dyslexia. My son started 6th grade needing reading support in school every other day. By the end of the year, he was meeting all his benchmarks, and we have learned that he will not need supplemental reading support for 7th grade. We are all beyond thrilled!

I was looking for someone who had the expertise and availability to tutor my daughter in a 400-level college course in Eucaryotic Cell Biology, a highly specialized subject. This proved to be more difficult that I originally thought until I found Lesley M. Lesley far exceeded my expectations with not only her extensive academic knowledge but her outstanding teaching skills. She related well to my daughter, answering her questions and working with her to maximize her study time. Lesley clearly identified problems in my daughter's study habits while preparing for a major exam. Lesley is very accessible, by email, telephone or in person, always available to meet as often as we liked. Above all else, she restored my daughter's confidence in her skills and abilities, allowing her to earn a 95 on the exam and an A in the class. I was VERY impressed by Lesley and you will not be disappointed!
