About Leonardo R.

Leonardo teaches: Ages 2 to 85
Teaching since: 1990
Last sign in: 3 days ago


Doing what I love: teaching, training, interacting with people. I retired from the army after 28 years of active and reserve military service, so now I have time to do privately what I did for the army for so many years: teach and train people. For many years I presented seminars in Spanish and English in Central and South America as well as the Caribbean on many subjects to adults of all ranks. I am a Florida State Certified Spanish teacher. My Bachelor's degree is in Political Science from the University of Puerto Rico, and I hold minors in History and French. I am (since 1993) a financial adviser (stock broker, RIA) and a licensed insurance agent, which is my other passion and area of expertise. This tutoring for me is not a job; it is a passion, just another way I do what I love - teaching, advising and interacting with people. If this sounds like what you want, hope to hear from you soon.

He is very knowledgeable in any subject area! Not only has me helped with the ASVAB but he gave me great advice in regards to the military. Highly recommend as a tutor!

Leo is a great tutor. He has helped me to understand my math problems much faster than my teachers could. I defiantly recommend giving him the chance to be your tutor.
