About TJ Leone

The best part of my work is making sense of challenging concepts and figuring out ways to make those concepts clear to students. It's a continuation of many years of learning, teaching and computer programming. I'm fortunate to have the opportunity to work with a wide age range of students (K-14) with a focus on math and computer science. Most of my work consists of private tutoring, teaching at Northwestern's Center for Talent Development, and after school classes at Chiaravalle Montessori School.

My favorite things include spending time with my wife Dolores, hanging out with my two daughters and their husbands and my friends, teaching, playing with math, computer programming, thinking and learning about pedagogy, meditation, and working out.  Here are Dolores and I finishing our first race, the Chicago marathon, on October 12, 2003.

Everybody who finished got a medal.
