About Lisa


Bio

I am an enthusiastic, patient teacher with excellent skills in approaching pedagogy from different angles. Using the theory of multiple intelligences, I allow students to explore their individual strengths (language, art, numbers, etc.)) to resolve problems or issues and find solutions. I firmly believe that this provides students with increased self esteem and the confidence to move forward. In my own education history, I was always more successful when allowed to apply my creativity and...

I am an enthusiastic, patient teacher with excellent skills in approaching pedagogy from different angles. Using the theory of multiple intelligences, I allow students to explore their individual strengths (language, art, numbers, etc.)) to resolve problems or issues and find solutions. I firmly believe that this provides students with increased self esteem and the confidence to move forward. In my own education history, I was always more successful when allowed to apply my creativity and personal knowledge to a subject when faced with a question. I feel that teachers should provide guidance, not answers, and allow students to make mistakes in order to enhance learning and make it that much more rewarding.
I hold a multiple subject and single subject (social studies) teaching credential and have been working with students of all ages for several years. My undergraduate minor degree is in anthroplogy/geography. I love to travel, especially to countries where the first language is not English. My hobbies and interests also include cooking, photography, and movies.

I run a business where I write up and present seminars to the public. I have been teaching dog training classes to the public for many years.

Social Studies

I've always held great interest in history and some of its associated disclipines: archaeology, psychology, geography. I recently received a single subject teaching credential in Social Studies. I like to use multi media examples to teach this subject: art, movies, books and photographs to give students different perspectives on events that have helped shape our world.

Cosmetology

I completed one year of a cosmetology program in Los Angeles. The first year concentrated on basic (hair) grooming and simple setting techniques, then moved onto nails and skin care. I used a mannequin head to practice at home. I also attended and completed a 6 week course in make up for television and movie production. Our "final" was to bring in a model and picture of a painting, and transform the model into the face of the painting.
