Hopefully these posts will inspire someone else to not only continue in their journey, but to thrive.
My name is Leslie D’Onofrio. I have teaching experience in the classroom, doing private tutoring, and home educating my own three children, who are now in college.
At the present time I am doing private tutoring in reading, writing, and math. This enables me to provide the skills needed for students to succeed, whether in the classroom or home educated.
