"5+ Years Experiences Teaching English to Immigrants and Refugees"
I am a certified ESOL teacher in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. My certification is pre-kindergarten to grade 12. I have over 5+ years experience teaching immigrants and refugees English. I teach English through curriculum content instruction. I have worked with students with various cultural and language backgrounds.

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!

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.

Was very familiar with the topic (Calculus) and able to convey ideas and concepts with ease.
Jared also connected the specific concept of the chapter with those of future chapters, placing the entire lesson within the context of calculus as a whole. In addition, he was also patient and willing to wait for his student to try to figure out the problem on his own, before he jumped in to help. An overall effective and amiable tutor.
