About Lisa

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

CBEST

I have taken and passed (the first time) both the GED in High School and the CBEST when applying for my teaching credential. I have also taken several CSET exams and passed, so I am quite familiar with the format of those tests and utilizing basic test skills - answer the questions you know first.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a multiple subject teaching credential which covers the basic education requirements for students in grades K-6. I have also worked as a co teacher and a substitute in elementary level classrooms. I am familiar with the Open Court literacy program and have run after school homework clubs.

Film

Before becoming a teacher I worked as a Production Coordinator, then as an Assistant Director (AD), in the production of television commercials. I worked as an AD on a feature film. I taught a summer school program in short film production at Crossroads School. I guided students in how to prep, crew and cast a film.

Phonics

I have worked as a literacy tutor in the elementary grades. I have passed the RICA test. I am familiar with and have utilized the Open Court literacy/reading materials for various grade levels elementary through middle school.

Public Speaking

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. Working as a teacher presents the opportunity to work on public speaking skills everyday, whether in the classroom or presenting new ideas to a group of colleagues.

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.
