About Leigha

I have a unique background that makes me especially qualified to be a great tutor - and there is nothing I love more than working with students to help them grow and learn! After studying English and Sociology in college, I taught middle school (6th, 7th, and 8th grade) science for three years as a licensed teacher in North Carolina. I spent a fourth year working in education before making the shift to psychology. I have experience with neuropsychological testing, which was a wonderful supplement to my preexisting knowledge about how the brain works, learns, and remembers, and I am currently a doctoral student in clinical psychology. Like I said, what I love most is making connections with people that help them grow. For me, tutoring is the wonderful sweet spot that blends teaching and psychology, and I'm so excited to work with you. I can't wait to meet you!!

Specialities

Given that I am currently in graduate school for clinical psychology and worked in the neuropsychology field for two years prior to school, I am excited to help with any psychology or human/behavioral science related work. I also studied both English and Sociology in college, so I have very strong social science knowledge and writing skills. I am also incredibly skilled at writing and editing papers and have done it as a side business in the past. Lastly, I am incredibly comfortable with a range of grades 5-9 science topics (as I was certified in Middle Grades Science education while I was teaching in North Carolina), so I am very happy to work with you on those topics as well!
