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

Career Development

I have extensive experience assisting students and business professionals with writing personal statements for admissions to professional schools, as well as writing business marketing materials. I have helped law school, med school, and dental school students write personal statements. I've also assisted clients with revising, rewriting and editing hedge fund reports and marketing reports. I've worked in ad agencies and corporations on business reports as an editor, researcher and writer.

College Counseling

I have coached students on writing admissions essays for college applications and have had to be knowledgeable about college admissions. I have done this successfully for 8 years. I have particular expertise working with students on college admissions essays - personal statements - for college and professional schools. Students I've worked with have been accepted to highly selective and competitive universities, including Harvard, Yale, Berkeley, Columbia, Stanford, Univ of Pennsylvia, NYU and others of that kind. I have developed long-term relationships with students of all ages, working with them on multiple applications.

Film

I've taught classes in film and literature on the college level and worked in the film industry as a script analyst, in publicity, and as an actress. I've also attended seminars like "Writers on Genre" at the Writer's Guild and was a member of Independent Film Project for more than a decade.

GMAT

I recently worked with a Barnard grad on the Verbal Section of the GMAT; I helped boost her score by 150 points in 3 1/2 sessions.
I have several years of successful experience coaching students on the GMAT. Since I've taught critical thinking and analytical writing, and am a professional writer and college professor, I am particularly effective on the Verbal section of the exam.

Writing

I've taught writing workshops on the college and university level for 15 years. I am also a professional writer with more than 55 publications. I've also worked with graduate students on Master's essays - and doctoral dissertations, helping students turn around marginal essays at competitive schools like UCLA.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
