Hi! My name is Lisa J. I am a consultant by day and I help students succeed by night. My educational background includes a B.A. in Biology and a Juris Doctorate from St. John's Law.
I am very committed to helping other people and I have devoted a good portion of my adult life to public service. I am particularly passionate about all issues affecting women, children and youth. I want all children to have the tools to be the very best that they can be and succeed in life. I believe that two of the most powerful tools a child can possess are self-esteem and a good education. Self esteem is strengthened with educational success.
I tutor because I want to give a student one-on-one attention until I am sure that he/she "really gets it". Whatever "it" may be! I look forward to working with you or your child.
My background in criminal justice includes a twenty-one year law enforcement career which required expertise in Police Science, Social Science and law. The very fundamentals of law enforcement required a strong background in criminal justice including a strong working knowledge and understanding of the practices and institutions of government relating to upholding (and enforcing) the law(s). This includes administering punishment (summons, arrest, incarceration) and the role of the courts and the judicial system.
My experience in public speaking is extensive, it includes being trained in Methods of Instruction with emphasis given to public speaking and presentations. In my past career I provided training for both in house personnel and for the public upon request. In my personal business I continue to give lectures and seminars utilizing many public speaking modalities and tools on various topics.
Depending on what the students individual needs are I will go over the fundamentals of public speaking which begin with PLANNING (your topic of choice) PREPARING YOUR PRESENTATION (research your topic thoroughly and know your audience). Learning some of the different presentation types INFORMATIVE, PERSUASIVE, ENTERTAINING or EVOCATIVE. You will learn time management techniques. I will discuss the use of materials to enhance your presentation e.g. handouts, slide shows (4x4 rule) or other aids. Lastly, DELIVERY is arguably the most critical component of Public Speaking. I will go over relaxation and breathing techniques, enunciation and diction and of course your body language and posture.
I am an excellent person to tutor the student in study skills. Having successfully obtained a professional degree I am adept at and knowledgeable of the skills necessary to succeed in any academic setting (from elementary school through college and beyond). My past experience includes being a teachers assistant and tutor during my undergraduate studies and leading a study group while seeking my Juris Doctorate.
Some of the areas that I will cover with the student include: Note taking tips, hi-lighting, organization skills, review of material and test taking strategies. Relaxation and anxiety reducing exercises will also be covered.
