My published books and articles cover a wide variety of science, history and technical product review topics. As a retired commercial industrial real estate appraiser with over 15 years experience, I am competent handling real estate, finance and economic problems.

Whether it's writing essays, word problems, calculations or using GIS software and tools, I engage my tutorial students to tackle problems (in a fun way). And I help decipher complicated problems to grasp difficult concepts. Students complete assignments feeling successful.
Do I know everything about a specific subject? No, but that's the challenge! Am I good at finding answers? Yes.

Hi Manan, Very glad I was able to help you identify how to study the CBEST reading questions and where to find resources. Good luck on your test. With the extra resources you will be well prepared. Take care, Lisa H.
ABSOLUTELY STELLAR TUTOR!!
I am a graduate student at USC working towards my masters in physics and science education. I sought help from Lisa to prepare for my CSET General Science and CBEST mathematics. I have long struggled with standardized tests, and word problems. Lisa's extensive knowledge, and ability to integrate multiple disciplines and strategy was invaluable in my undertaking of the exams. In addition to tutoring me on the content and test-taking strategies, she made me feel comfortable, confident, and was able to reduce with my test anxiety; things that I have also struggled with, and have impacted my success in testing. Working with Lisa has literally been life-changing in my approach towards test-taking. I have been lucky to have worked with her, and will undoubtedly do so again in the future onward.SHANGITA, 31 lessons with Lisa
