Thank you very much for the kind words. I feel that each student has unique talents and capabilities, therefore, each requires a customized plan for growth, and accountability. I provide a memorable session for each of my students. That's why I have close to 780 excellent feedbacks from my students! That's a lot of happy people! I am blessed to be able to make a difference for all! Here are a few brief comments from long time students that have worked with me: ---“We have hired many tutors for our children but none compare to Lisa. She is truly the greatest!!! ---We are very pleased!” ---“Lisa is punctual and caring - we are enjoying working with her.” ---“Both my wife and myself would strongly recommend employing Lisa to any prospective students.” ---“She is one of the most patient, caring, understanding tutors I ever had.” ---“We are very happy with Lisa's work and look forward to a long happy tutoring support with her.” ---“Lisa proved to be extremely helpful. My daughter passed both her finals.” ---“We were quite surprised as to how much work was done in two hours with no complaints from our son.” ---“Lisa cares a great deal about her students and she makes a personal investment into the lives and learning of her students!” ---“Lisa is great with children and has a lot of patience, I can’t say enough positive things about her!!!”

"Good tutor but unaccommodating with scheduling"

- Raavi, Scarsdale, NY on 8/26/13
Lisa replied on 8/31/2013

Its true, I am very patient and innovative in my teaching methods, but there is a discrepancy pertaining to the scheduling. My days are not packed as stated, but my schedule does depends on the needs of ALL my students. In this instance, it was never made clear to me that I had to stay and wait for 45 minutes for the second student to come. In addition, the son had a full summer schedule leaving little time when we could do the session. This was a 2 part session, with the second part beginning at 630P, but because of the lateness that would put the lesson from 715P to 815P. I could not stay beyond the original session time due to other commitments. In addition, my decision to no longer tutor there was ALSO based on the fact that this was NOT the first time that they were NOT able to make their session. I forgave the missing session LAST TIME, but this time only billed for the time that they were not able to keep their commitment. They never made it clear that I had to stay for the second part of the session. My policy is clearly stated on my site. As many of my long time students know, I often stay longer than I bill for, and I expect my students to keep their commitments, as I am committed to them.

"Good Tutor. Helped Daughter Pass Math and Science Final"

- Nelson, Bronx, NY on 7/20/12
Lisa replied on 7/20/2012

We had limited time to turn it around, since she has been getting test grades in the 50's and below. But, she pulled it off with an 80 on her Earth Science test! Then, I found out that her Math results were even better! Way to go!! I don't work miracles, but I sure try to.

"Talented but not Dependable"

- Lisa, Scarsdale, NY on 7/15/12
Lisa replied on 7/22/2012

There are a lot of discrepancies here to what actually took place. My record speaks for itself. I am always professional, kind, and patient, but I cannot please everyone. It's unfortunate that her son did not get the help he needed. We only did one session and it was rated: GOOD.

"Meticulous and dedicated!"

Lisa replied on 3/19/2012

Thank you, Guru for your kind words! I am very proud of you in your efforts to do the presentation totally in Spanish. That is why they did such a great article on you in the Business Section of the New York Times! I know you strive to be the best and you are!

"Fantastic and patient tutor!"

So glad to hear that your son was able to get into Trinity, Skidmore, Hobart William Smith, SUNY Binghamton and will pursue his studies at Macaulay Honors College at Hunter with a scholarship. I knew how critical those applications were. I was honored to be able to help!
