"My name is Leo. I'm 27 years old and recently graduated from Stony Brook University with a Master of Science degree in Biochemistry and Cell Biology, and previously attended SUNY Geneseo for a Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry and Mathematics in 2011. I currently work as a research and development engineer, and have previously performed biophysics, biochemistry, organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry academic research, culminating in several publications.

Although I'm a scientist by day, teaching is a passion of mine and I have done it for well over 8 years. I have previously tutored everything ranging from middle school math and science - to college level sciences - as well as every major science and math regents exam. I've also tutored for the SAT and the GRE.

I am an exceptional tutor and have had an extremely high success rate with my students; they begin seeing improvements as early as after the first lesson! I have been told that I am able to put difficult topics into very easy language to understand - which is what I believe is the single most important aspect of being an educator.

I believe my success also comes from creating an environment where the student feels comfortable. Due to being comfortable, they listen attentively and really understand the subject matter. I don't create a mandatory learning environment and force work upon my students. I try to think of fun and exciting ways to get them engaged and interested. My students don't just pass tests and homework, they understand the core concepts and I'm always looking for ways to teach them more to get to the highest possible level of comprehension. Being that I'm young it is easier for them to relate to me, another attribute that makes a good educator. Not someone you have to listen to, someone you WANT to listen to.

I'm always looking for new teaching methods, and items to help supplement my students learning.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask! I look forward to working with you!" less...
