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!

My name is Lesley and I have a PhD in Molecular Biology from Umass Amherst. I know how hard science can be to learn and I want to help you not only understand it but love it! I was also trained at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD where I was a scientist, teacher and mentor. I have been working in science since I was 17 and have trained many young students to enter medicine or research. I would love to help any one from grammar school to graduate school.

"Math Tutoring, K-12"
Does your child struggle with Math? Need help with homework or preparing for tests? Please contact me and let me help.
I have had the privilege of tutoring dozens of elementary, middle school, and highÂ school students, and have found that when students begin to understand the math concepts which have previously frustrated them, they gain confidence which helps them not only in math but in other classes and life situations as well. It is a joy for me to see struggles and stress turn into sm... ... More
