My favorite part of tutoring is helping a struggling learner grow in confidence. In addition to tutoring, I make an effort to help my students track their growth so they can recognize their achievements.
I am a certified math teacher for grades 7 through 12, and I have been tutoring students in various subjects since I was in high school. In the past, I have tutored elementary math, reading, and spelling with students as young as 4 years old. I have also worked with students in high school and college math courses, ranging from Algebra 1 to Calculus. Geometry and Trigonometry are my favorite math topics.
I cannot wait to hear from you and to help you tackle whatever course is challenging you. My favorite part of tutoring is helping a struggling learner grow in confidence. In addition to tutoring, I make an effort to help my students track their growth so they can recognize their achievements.

Lisa has been working with our daughter on Algebra 2. Before we hired Lisa, my daughter had an F. Math has never been her strong suit. After 4 just sessions, she was up to a B, and has stayed there for more than a month.
Lisa is extremely patient and she goes above and beyond to make herself available. She has made herself available during times that we are not normally scheduled for before tests, or when our daughter is stuck on a new area. She shows our daughter more than one way to solve problems, which gives her more insight in approaching her work. We weren't sure what to expect from blindly hiring a tutor online, but needless to say, the experience has exceeded everything we hoped for!
Several weeks into tutoring my 13 y/o twin girls on pre-algebra and Geometry, Lisa has shown that she is very patient and is always able to keep them focused. Tutoring one child at a time, due to their differences in how they learn and retain information, Lisa is able to switch gears and relate to whichever one she is working with. I would recommend her to anybody looking for an excellent tutor!!
My daughter was a little nervous about having a tutor, but Lisa made her feel very comfortable. Her grade and her confidence in Algebra has improved thanks to Lisa!
Lisa provided help for my son when he needed. The session would have been better if my son had better prepared for the session. Lisa stayed with him to help him although a snow storm had started outside. My son and I only lived about 15 minutes from the meeting location but it took us a hour to reach home. I know that she travels farther to meet us, we were concerned about her safety. We plan to utilize Lisa services in the future.
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.
I attended seminary and have a Master of Arts in Christian Education. I have 19+ graduate hours of theology course work along with courses that focused on Biblical teachings for age groups from birth to senior adults. I have been teaching Bible studies in a church setting since I was 13 years old. I have taught toddler, preschool, children, youth, college, and adult women Bible studies during that time.
