Elementary Reading & Math, Chemistry Tutoring
My name is Albina Lleshi.
I have lived in Albania for most of my life, but I now live in New Jersey.
I have been a teacher for twenty five years. Once I graduated from the University of Tirana with a Bachelors in Chemistry and Biology, I taught chemistry to high school students in Albania for fifteen years. Once I moved to America I began to teach elementary students reading, writing and math. I enjoy reading with my students and leading them in the right direction as they prepare to face challenges throughout their educational careers.
For the past ten years, I have been lucky enough to teach elementary students in different charter schools around New Jersey and watch them grow into intellectually curious and bright individuals. One of my biggest accomplishments as a teacher is watching my students come to class, excited to learn, and walk out having learned something new.
My main goal as a teacher is to help my students understand anything that they happen to be stumbling on and give their parents peace of mind. I understand that learning can be very stressful and if I can help alleviate that stress in any way, I’m more than happy to do so and that is more than enough for me as a teacher. I, of course want my students to learn, but more importantly, I want them to enjoy learning and I will work tirelessly to make that happen for them.
I have taught math and reading to elementary school students and watching them have genuine movements of understanding makes my day. I think it does the same for my students. I see it when they actually understand and are invested in the books we read and in the utter bliss they experience when they can solve a math problem with ease. I would love to tutor students in science, specifically Chemistry, because I have a great passion for the subject and thoroughly enjoyed teaching it to students in my home country.
