About Lisa

I'm so excited to be working as a tutor in San Diego! I have over 10 years of experience in teaching and tutoring mathematics. I recently taught Middle School math for eight years at a charter school in Vista. Due to the long commute from San Diego, I decided to begin a tutoring career. For me, seeing students work through their frustration with math and move into a place of confidence in their abilities, makes my time as a tutor very rewarding. I believe that we all have the ability to learn math, it is just a matter of how hard we are willing to work in both the academic sense as well as the emotional sense. I have seen students who sabotage their learning because they feel "stupid" and this is not acceptable. We need to empower students with the confidence to believe in themselves and that learning math is something that is attainable. I'm not claiming it to be easy, but with help and guidance, success in math is possible.

My specialty is working with Middle School students in Pre-algebra and Algebra 1; however, I have worked with elementary students as well as Algebra 1 High school students.

Are you confused and frustrated with your current math abilities? Do you often find yourself saying "I'm not good enough, I'm stupid and can't learn math?" Well, please take comfort in knowing you are not alone. I've worked with many students in overcoming their fears and lack of confidence in math. There are people who want to help you succeed and I'm one of them!
