About Lisa

I'm a patient tutor in math, science, accounting and English. I help the students with problem solving skills and help them gain the confidence they need to solve the problems on their own. I tutor statistics, algebra, geometry, and Accounting 1 and Intermediate.

I find out where a student is deficient by having them perform some basic skills tests. Then I work with them to strengthen those skills. I help them with retention by going over longer more complicated problems. I show them how to study on their own. I help them work through test anxiety and math blocks.

I have a B.S degree in accounting through Grand Canyon University. I have over 10 years experience as a tutor in math, science in English. I have worked with elementary students, high school students and adults. I am patient and have the attitude that everyone can be successful in their studies with the right study habits and corrected learning.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an educational background in math, science and accounting. I have worked as an SES tutor where I tutored young students, grades 1 through 6, in basic reading and language arts. I have also tutored them in basic math and phonics.

Phonics

I was an SES tutor where I had to help students learn basic reading. I helped them develop skills in sight reading through phonics instruction. I test a student to find what level they are, and then I help them get to the level of the class. I show them how they can continue on their own.

QuickBooks

I have done freelance work as a bookkeeper for a non-profit, a service business, and a design firm. I created balance sheets, statements of financial position, and worked extensively with Quickbooks online, Mac and Pro. I have over 2 years experience with Quickbooks.

Study Skills

I am a qualified tutor in study skills because I have had to help students in this area. Students often need to be weaned from being overseen by a tutor. Teaching them how to manage their times, prioritize information that they need to learn, take notes, and how to read and scan helps students become successful. I have taught elementary grade through adult in these skills.

Tax Preparation

I am CSET certified to prepare taxes with the IRS.
