Writing

Writing

Numerous college students have come to me with "It's due in an hour!" or "I have to turn it in tonight!". No worries, we complete each task successfully and on time. And then we work on organization and essay structure, so there's not a crisis for the next essay assignment, or college application requirement. And I edit personal statements for undergrad and graduate college applications. The key is realizing these essays will require revisions. For the past 12 years, I have been a published writer for several different online and hard copy publications (Learning Express, NOAA, SAIL and Boys' Life Magazine, MacDirectory Magazine, Science Weekly, and Trillium Publishing). Let my experience improve your opportunities!

Knowledgeable

Lisa listened to me and where I struggled with. She gave me great advice how to start and what to do in order to move forward and what would work for me for my upcoming CSET exam knowing my struggles. She reviewed some math with me and even gave me some book recommendations.

Real Estate Exam Review

Lisa was great!! I met with her the day before I took my National Real Estate License test. After failing once I needed some help guidance studying. She answered all my questions and was so knowledgeable and professional !! I passed my test the next day! Thank you Lisa!!

Tutor responded:

Hi Erica, Great job - you nailed the exam! Good luck in your future real estate career. I wish you all the best, and keep learning in real estate. It's a challenging and dynamic field. Take care, Lisa Hill.

She was a-rich source of information.

She helped me feel empowered. She offered me a clear roadmap to navigate my way through the labyrinth of technology that I have to untangle. I have been overwhelmed with the frustration of having to develop the necessary skills to understand how to manage my business website. She kindly and patiently taught me things that would have taken me years to find out on my own. I highly recommend her. She knows a lot in many different fields.
