About Lisa

I am a certified social studies teacher, however, I have experience in tutoring students in ACT/SAT verbal and reading portions, life science, elementary math and study skills.

I have had a great deal of success working with ESOL students as well as native speaking students.

My 25 years spent in the legal field gives me an edge on teaching civics. I have also traveled extensively, including having been to all 50 states. I also have many years experience with coaching children as well.

I am happy to supply you with references.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

I have tutored students for the ACT English exam both privately and in groups of up to 8 students.

ACT Reading

I have a great deal of experience in tutoring all aspects of the verbal portions of these standardized tests and am eager to help other students with increasing their score.

American History

As a teacher of U.S. History, I believe I can be of great assistance to students struggling with this subject.

Also, having my undergraduate degree in political science and economics, I can assure a good grasp of the subject matter.

English

In addition to having taught Language Arts, I have been teaching the verbal portion of standardized for the past two years. In addition, having been a paralegal for 25 years, I have a great deal of real life experience in writing.

Geography

As a world geography teacher, I am quite confident I can assist students in preparing and studying for any test for this subject.

Martial Arts

I hold a 6th level black belt. I have also been teaching for years. I am certified by my instructor.

Phonics

Although I am primarily a middle school teacher, I have tutored, with a degree of success, two four year old children in phonetic reading. It may be a very young age, however, the parents were anxious to have their children reading.

Strategies include initially teaching letter recognition, then equating that letter with the sound(s) it makes. Next, I teach basic words, then use words that have similar spellings that rhyme.

The next phase integrates the use of alliterations in simple words.

I am happy to provide you with a reference.

SAT Reading

I have worked with High School students for two years helping them increase their verbal scores on both SAT and ACT exams. I am also a certified teacher and am certain I can help you as well.

Social Studies

I teach World History, World Geography and US History. I am certified by the State of Florida in social science grades 5-9.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills for both middle school and high school students.
I teach a study skills class to 6th grade at Jacobson Sinai Academy, Miami, Florida, using a variety of organizational and memorization techniques.

In addition, I have taught a study skills course at a private tutoring center (College Express) to assist students preparing for the SAT/ACT testing.

Vocabulary

Having been a professional writer, a social studies and language arts teacher, as well as having tutored in SAT/ACT English writing and reading, I am very qualified to help students build a strong vocabulary.

I have assisted many ESOL students with vocabulary strategies as well.
