All of Lisa’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Lisa’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ADD/ADHD

I have been working with ADD/ADHD/Autistic kids and adults for many years. Many are teenagers with attention issues, and hyper-activity, which prevents them from focusing for longer periods of time.

I am very patient and find ways to engage them to learn, at their own pace.

I am working with several Autistic children, ADD Adults, dyslexic adults and teenagers, and ADHD children.

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring pre-algebra and algebra for several years now. I was on the Math TEAM in High School, and we did many competitions with the other schools. I enjoy teaching Math because it keeps my mind sharp!

Aspergers

I have been working with Aspergers Syndrome kids and adults for many years. Many are teenagers with attention issues, and hyper-activity, which prevents them from focusing for longer periods of time.

I am working with several Autistic children, ADD Adults, dyslexic adults and teenagers, and ADHD children.

Autism

I have been working with Autistic children for several years now. I know how to engage them, gain their trust, and get them to do what I ask.

Many of my children look forward to their lessons. One five year old, told his mother that the best part of Sunday is when he gets to spend time doing a lesson with me. This is an autistic child who has grown tremendously in the past year. To say his parents are happy is an understatement. I also recommend nutrition intervention, since I am Certified in Nutrition.

I am very patient and find ways to engage them to learn, at their own pace. I am working with several Autistic children, ADD Adults, dyslexic adults and teenagers, and ADHD children.

Career Development

I have been counseling adults and young students in many areas, in preparation for their goals. I trained many people in the financial area including setting tangible goals, and ways to measure them.

When I tutor students for specific tests, I always ask what their goals are, and where they see themselves in the future. I have over 20 years of business experience in many different fields, so I can advise accordingly.

College Counseling

With many years of experience in many areas, I would be able to help you with regards to College Counseling. I can help with writing essays for entrance applications, since I know what the Colleges are looking for. I have helped many students, preparing for their entrance exams also.

So if you have a dream to go to College, gather your information and I can help you put it together into a nice package that will appeal to the Colleges.

My background includes Public Relations, writing copy for advertisements, research, and just knowing what people like. So send an email to check for my availability.

Cooking

Many years ago, I was accepted to the Culinary Institute in Hyde Park. Cooking has been my passion for many years. When I was a child, my mother would cook up many delicious dishes, and I learned a lot from her. I did restaurant reviews in New York City, since I had the cooking background, and the writing skills. I even did some business luncheons for clients in which I prepared all the food, and I had over 120 attendees. I still love to read about new recipes, and about natural foods and health.

Dyslexia

I understand the challenges that Dyslexic students have. They are often the brightest students/adults, but have challenges and frustration.

I am currently working with several dyslexic students, and I have seen tremendous growth, and improvement in their confidence level, and ability to accomplish more. I am very patient and find ways to engage them to learn, at their own pace. Often, I will reward them, if I observe a milestone that has been reached.

Having studied how people learn languages gives me the edge with dyslexic students, because I can observe what they do, and work to improve their abilities.

Ear Training

I am a trained singer with experience in the studio. I realized that I could sing when I was seven years old. I was in musicals, and I learned to play several instruments by ear. I can hear two notes and tell you what song it is. Music has been one of my saving graces. I sang in churches with Gospel singers. I can play instruments by ear, without knowing the tune prior.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math is one of the basic components of everyday practical math. Without a good foundation, it can be very frustrating for kids as they go into the higher level math courses. I have a natural way to explain things so that the kids understand the whys and hows. I using visual components that get the kids to think and apply what they learn. They understand, and then get to enjoy math!

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching ESL students from many countries including China, Japan, Russia, Ukraine, Vietnam, Korea, France, Mexico, Dominican Republic, India, and most Latin American countries. My students enjoy their lessons, and look forward to their next lesson.

I speak three languages and studied five languages, so I understand the challenges of learning a new language.

I am very patient and enjoy working with my students.

GED

I've been tutoring for the GED for close to 5 years now. I know the tricks for the Math section, and my students develop confidence when working with me. It takes time, and practice to pass all the sections. The world opens up when you pass the GED. Doors open, and you are able to do so many things in your life.

Handwriting

I have been working with Elementary children for many years now. I work with them with hand-writing, phonics, and cursive writing as well. I have many techniques which help them with hand coordination, and writing faster and clearer. I studied how children learn languages at New York University, and I apply everything that I know into my sessions.

Linear Algebra

I have been teaching Linear Algebra for three years now. I can teach graphic linear equations, solving them by substitution, algebraically, and by elimination. I was on the Math team many years ago, and I could do the problems faster than any other team members. I also have an extensive Math background due to being in the field of Finances, teaching for the GED and the ASVAB tests.

I am also a graduate of New York University, which has only a 30% acceptance rate. I enjoy teaching all aspects of Algebra.

Marketing

I was a Marketing and Management Major at New York University. I also have over 20+ years of Marketing experience from consumer products, to promotions, sales in various financial areas.

Nutrition

I am Certified in Nutrition by the University of Miami, School of Medicine Continuing Education Division. I have a Bachelor of Science degree from New York University. I hold Certifications as a Weight Management Advisor and Nutritional Wellness Consultant from PROEVITY, Illinois.

I have over 20+ years of nutritional experience, referrals from Doctors, and health professionals. I have helped people all over the world, from the USA, to Canada, to Europe.

I have helped people get our of HOSPICE, saved children and I even helped cats, dogs, and birds with nutrition.

I have studied HOMEOPATHIC Medicine, AYURVEDA (Indian), and Chinese Medicines.

I have access to over 20,000 nutritional products, which I have studied, and researched on an ongoing basis.

Phonics

I have been working with PHONICS with students of all ages and levels. Since I understand how we learn languages because I studied Linguistics, I found that this method reduces the time needed to learn. The students who I am teaching using PHONICS improve at a much rapid level and they enjoy their lessons. My students consist of 4 year olds, Special needs students, ESL students from all countries around the world, and adults who are learning to read for the first time. The success rate is excellent and they look forward to their lessons, because they are fun. If you are having fun, you are more relaxed and your mind is like a parachute.........the rest is history.

Photography

I was a Press Photographer for a radio station, two publications, and also several non-profit organizations. I took over 37,000 photographs of people, places, and events. I enjoy capturing the expression on people's faces or a unique shot of a Hawaiian Gran Canyon, a rainbow, or a Maine Coon Cat. I can teach you how to be creative . Although I do know how to use digital cameras, I still prefer the old-fashion film ones. I even was hired to photograph a Bar Mitzvah. That was a lot a fun. So capturing the moment takes some skill, but with a trained eye, you can be a much better photographer!!

Reading

I have been teaching reading skills to students from ages 3 to adults. I use many resources to customize the lessons for each particular student. I make the lessons fun too, so my students look forward to their next lesson. Some of the students that I have taught have included: a 24 year old who dropped out of school and always wants me to extend the session, a father with a son who is in the 2nd grade and the father is not able to read or help his son with his homework, a 1st grader who was in danger of being left back a grade, a man who wanted to get a better job, but could not read, so he could not fill -out his applications properly, a teenager whose parents were in IRAQ and was failing every subject, and so many more.

Social Studies

I have been tutoring Social Studies from the 3rd grade level to High School. I have taught students about History, and Global History. I use all the materials that the teachers use to do the lessons.

My students all achieve scores in the 90's because I have ways to simplify the materials, and have them recall much more than they would on their own.

Spanish

I am a native Spanish speaker and have been teaching the language for many years. Some of my clients are students from elementary, middle and high schools. Others consist of Executives from Corporations who need to learn the language for business or travel purposes. I scored a nearly perfect score on the SAT in Spanish, and I have taught thousands of hours. I am also an New York University graduate.

Tennis

I can teach tennis because I was the number one player in the East Coast (18 and under) when I was 16 years old. I still love the sport, and I enjoy teaching it to the younger generation. I played in competitions till I entered college, and when I was 30 years old, I returned to competitive tennis. I guess, once a tennis player, always a tennis player!

TOEFL

The TOEFL is a particularly difficult exam for non-native speakers. It has many challenges which I can help you with. I use strategies to improve your score, and you will feel much more confident when you take your exam. Knowing what to expect and taking the mystery out of the exam makes it possible to achieve your best! Let me help you get there.
