About Lisa

I enjoy engaging students with activities that promote cooperation, exploration and creative thinking. I can help your child focus and organize. With many years experience working with foster children and children with medical issues and developmental disabilities I know that patience, respect and encouragement are the keys to helping your special child learn, grow and thrive at his/her own pace with a guiding hand in the right direction.

I attained my Master's degree as an adult so I know that adult learners need a different touch. I am practiced in adult learning principles, both from a student perspective and as a trainer for adults and can help you succeed in your chosen topics.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am well-versed in working with students with special needs and with adults. Having experience with developmentally disabled youngsters and foster children with educational issues and behavioral challenges including ADD/ADHD gives me a unique perspective. Patience, an open mind, and creativity can help to focus and redirect attention in order to facilitate learning.

Aspergers

I have experience with individuals with autism and Asperger's through work with Arkansas Children's Hospital and within the foster care system. I have taken several continuing education courses as well touching on abilities, needs and techniques. Patience, repetition, identifying individual strengths and a sense of humor are key elements in working with these special individuals.

Autism

I have experience with individuals with Autism and Aspergers through work with Arkansas Children's Hospital and within the foster care system. I have taken several continuing education courses as well touching on abilities, needs and techniques. Patience, repetition, identifying individual strengths and a sense of humor are key elements in working with these special individuals.

Biology

Biology was one of my favorite subjects in school and it still fascinates me today. I continue to read science related articles and books to keep current. There was also a strong emphasis in biology throughout my college studies culminating in a Masters degree in Health Sciences.

Business

As an entrepreneur and small business owner, I can help you evaluate your potential for owning your own business, find a niche, write a basic business plan and more. I also have over 10 years experience at director level in health and human services. Responsibilities included hiring and termination, staff development, budget development and grant administration, staff supervision and client services. Call Lisa to cultivate your business acumen!

Career Development

I have been the busy professional who has worked her way up the corporate ladder. As a long time director of a non-profit I have the business skills to share. As an entrepreneur, I can help students explore their strengths, options and ideas. I get along well with teens and young adults and can help them learn what it takes to succeed and become successful adults in the "real" world of business.

Cooking

Nutrition and taste can go together. I have a background in health and wellness and I love to cook and bake. I can teach the basics or help you explore new flavors.

Nutrition

With a degree in health sciences, I am well versed in the general principles of health wellness and nutrition. If you have specific nutritional needs, please see a dietitian, but if you want the basics, I am your gal.

Public Speaking

I am a trained speaker and group facilitator with over 10 years' experience in front of audiences of all sizes and ages in both casual and professional settings. Presentations have lasted anywhere from a few minutes to full day sessions. I have also been involved in interviews for print media as well as television and radio and have also participated in the Toastmasters public speaking group as well. I am well equipped to help others gain the confidence to speak in front of an audience.

Reading

I am an avid reader and carry a book with me at all times. I read to learn and read for recreation. I welcome the opportunity to help students of all ages broaden their capabilities so they too can appreciate and enjoy this critical skill.

Study Skills

I have experience working with students of all ages and helping them create a good study environment. Learning how to organize materials and make a plan is important. I am good at time management and helping students get a grip on what is important. Helping a child learn to focus and working with their strengths is a key developing good study skills.
