About Lisa

Teaching is my passion. I know how life changing it can be to begin to understand something and even become good at it. At the very least, moving through obstacles that hold people back from succeeding at school and at work, are more important than most people realize.

I have been teaching adults for many years to assist them in reaching their goals and be all that they can be. With a masters in Psychology, I teach on the college level. This includes Psyche 101 and Social psychology that focuses on the way people communicate with each other and why. My private practice includes mental and physical therapies that I have trained in since 1988. I am dedicated to helping people be relaxed and focused. My tutoring also include skills for job interviews, public speaking and leading meetings. This covers what to say, how to act and even body language. I am a member of Toastmasters, where I speak and mentor people to be better leaders and speakers. As a professional speaker, I have an enormous background in public speaking as well as helping foreigners with their expression in English. I speak locally at clubs and organizations. Last but not least , I have a Bachelors degree in music. Piano is my main instrument. I have experience in teaching music fundamentals. I worked as a professional musician for 20 years.

Psychology has many aspects to learn. Helping people take advantage of the communication and analysis skills that are still being developed today is my favorite part. Watching a student realize one of their issues and choosing to change is incredibly fulfilling. I enjoy the challenge of engaging students to want to learn and become comfortable with the process. I am known for my enthusiasm and leadership. My education and experience provides me with many options for being able to see a students challenges and find a way through them. Due to teaching both publicly and in academic settings, I have experience in teaching ethnically and financially diverse students with various age ranges and religious backgrounds. Sometimes I think my students are teaching me as I become familiar with their backgrounds and ways of thinking! As a life coach and teacher of Psychology I have spent many hours seeking solutions for my clients through positive support and creating clear goals. Then helping people present themselves in a confident and relaxed manner is like the final touch to any situation.

Perhaps one or more of the subjects I have mentioned will be just right for you. Please contact me so we can get clear on your needs and when we can get started. I also teach over the internet.

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.

Public Speaking

I studied speaking skills for 2 years with a mentor named Maurice DiMino. I have been professionally speaking since 1999. My involvement with Toastmasters is an ongoing training and teaching situation, plus I see clients privately already. I was a professional entertainer and studied body language, which makes me capable in many areas of speaking skills.
