Kaitlin T.

5 lessons

Thanks so much! 11/11/14 - One last update! Erin taught my daughter a lot of strategies in the 10 or so hours they worked together. Kaitlin was able to raise her English score by 11 points, which is incredible, and she was able to achieve the composite score she had as a goal for herself. Eleven points!!! That's incredible! All the time the spent together was spent efficiently and well worth every penny. Thanks, Erin!

Megan has the skills to drive the student engagement needed. After just 10 weeks of 2 times a week tutoring my son's ACT English score increased from a 22 to a 29 bringing his ACT super score to 31! As important, he now understands grammar rules he did not learn in high school. Our only regret is we did not find Megan sooner as with more time we are certain his score would have been even greater... If reading this review your search is completed - Good luck!
Ms. Trey H.

It was no longer “scary” and she made my experience enjoyable. She understood my busy theatre arts schedule and was able to adapt to the amount of time I had to work on certain aspects of my studies. Our discussions were always great and I'm in awe of her intellect! I would recommend Lisa to anyone looking for an amazing, happy & wonderful teacher. In my future academic endeavors, whenever needed and wherever possible, I will always return to Lisa! Namaste!
