About this tutor

I think learning should be fun! Even if it's hard. That mindset and my patience and genuine care for my students are what set me apart. I've had two years of training as a college study skills and English tutor. I've also been a nanny several times and have a lot of experience working with kids. I've learned that people of every age and background need to feel genuinely loved. Once they realize they're important in someone's eyes, they have more confidence to succeed on their own.

I love helping students be able to be independant. I give them the skills and encouragement they need to realize that they have what it takes to be a successful student.

    Mrs. McLeish was my tutor for Reading Comprehension, and she was terrific. She gave me so many new tools to learn and was so patient with me. She cared about my progress and helped my grade so much. I'd recommend her five times over!

    She is very accommodating and genuine. Wants you to succeed and is flexible. Keeps you accountable and wants to make the most of your tutoring session. Checks for understanding. Sweet person!
