" We first heard about Leann from a close friend of ours who could not stop raving about how wonderful she was with their son and all the progress he had made. We decided to give tutoring a try for the first time and have been regulars with Bit of a Boost for over a year now!
Leann brings energy and understanding to classroom topics, which translates into a positive learning environment for the children. Our son “Tom” is not a fan of school or the homework that comes with it. However, he LOVES his time with Leann and the all the new things he will learn while working with her.
To see the progress he makes each day with Leann lets me know he is in good hands. It is something special to see the big smile on his face after he has conquered a difficult problem and feels proud.
As a parent you always want the best for your child. To give your child an advantage in life with a solid educational foundation, Leann is the best!" - Wendy
“Great lady, wonderful, caring, and a smart teacher. If your child needs a challenge, give Leann a visit at bitofaboost.com. She’s great!" - Yvonne Gengler
"I was very fortunate to have worked with Leann for over 10 years. She and I were teaching partners in Crystal Lake School District 47. I can attest to her love of children and her desire to see all children succeed and achieve their highest potential. She is a highly creative individual and will work hard to make your child's learning fun and engaging. Because of her diverse background in teaching she has the skills necessary to work with all types of students. I highly recommend Leann's program to anyone who is interested in helping their child achieve academic success!" - Diane Daniello, fellow 5th grade teacher
