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!

Mandeep has been working with my 14 year old daughter on her math for a few weeks now, and it's been wonderful. She's here on time, and she's been very flexible about scheduling--something we needed. My daughter is feeling the tutoring sessions are providing real benefits, and they're significantly lowering her stress level around math homework and tests. Thanks to Mandeep, she's had some better quiz grades, and she has hopes for more in the future.
