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.

Reading and writing Kinder lessons

Our 5 yr old son looks forward to Lisa's lessons each weekend, she makes learning fun. Lisa works not only to have our son learn the words but also understanding the meanings, and she pays a great deal of attention to learning disabilities. Catching these early is very helpful, especially for our son with ASD. Learning is fun with Lisa :-)

Lisa is an excellent and one of a kind tutor. My son has been taking tutoring lessons with Lisa for about 9 months now and I thank her for everything she has done.

Patience, compassion and understanding with my son.

Loved her patience, compassion and understanding with my son. My son is somewhat deficient in certain areas and will require some significant help but Lisa seems very willing and able. I thought it was a good first session.

Very patient and knowledgeable about English grammar which is what I needed help with. She asked me what I needed help with and provided verbal and written help with great examples and quizzes. Would use her again.
