Along with teaching him his math skills she has worked with him on organization of his thoughts, executive functioning, and different ways of approaching the problem. Her talents go beyond just teaching the math she is good at understanding of teaching "whole student."
She struggles especially with writing papers, particularly when asked to analyze something that, for example, they've read in class. All the stuff is up there in her head, but she has trouble getting it out in an organized way. Lisa has so far been able to teach her ways to help with that, given her some structure to work with, executive functioning. And so patient, and a sense of humor! We highly recommend Lisa!
And strongly encourages him to use his assignment book. She also insists he reads the rubric. This is really important because he was getting low grades for doing projects the way he wanted to, and not how the teacher wants them done. Kristen also insists my son builds in fun with friends and other downtime into his schedule. I love that he is learning to create work-life balance.
