Personal Statement

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.

Was able to step in at the very last minute and give me son some important last minute help on his Chemistry mid-term preparations.

Leo is patient and willing to take his time. He will even take extra time if needed to finish what they are working on. He makes my daughter feel very comfortable.

Leo is great at breaking down complex topics into a streamlined/straight forward format for Honors Chemistry. He takes the time to address all areas of concern. Even if there isn't classwork to review, Leo is prepared with practice test questions and other test preparation materials. He is patient and appears relatable to my teen son. My son is comfortable expressing any concerns about a problem topic.

Leo is a very nice guy and I highly recommend him. He helped my daughter raise her grade, and worked very well with our schedule.

Leo tutors 2 of my kids. They were not very happy about "having" to go work with a tutor, to the point that they fought me walking into the library! I basically sat them down with Leo and said good luck as I walked away! Whatever "magic" he did with them to get them working was great and worked like a charm. The boys left the session in good spirits (big difference from practically dragging them in by their ears an hour earlier). They both said that they understood what Leo was trying to explain and that the time seemed to go fast. My 6th grader took a practice math test during school that he got a 40 on. That night was his first tutoring session which he reviewed the practice test. The following day he took the actual test and got a 76! We are all very pleased and look forward to their grades improving more and more. Now that same child just got a 96!

I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first. I came across the WyzAnt website while searching for a tutor for my son who is a junior. I typed in trig and physics tutor and was surprised when Leo popped up- he was local, affordable and available. After a few lessons my son is more confident with his work and in fact scored a 95 on a math test, needless to say I was ecstatic. My son says that Leo is patient but more importantly he understands what he is teaching, he gets down to a level that he can relate to. Leo is also flexible whether my son wants to go over math, physics or SAT prep work he is ready and prepared to help him. I love that Leo is not punching a clock with my son, if Leo feels my son requires more time and he does not have a student he has no problem working with my son until he is confident and understands what they are reviewing. I am very pleased with the service and will definitely refer Leo to anyone looking for a great tutor!

Great teaching strategies! Very kind and patient. Introduced my son to fun math techniques and he looks forward to his visits! We were very lucky to find him!
