About Lisa

I'm a former elementary school teacher (K-1), certified with an undergraduate degree from University of Colorado - Boulder and a Master's in Education from Relay Graduate School. I specialize in phonics, reading and writing.

I also specialize in Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Office.

As a former Kindergarten Teacher for a successful charter school in Newark, NJ, I value teaching with rigor and JOY! In my last year of teaching, of 30 students, 40% of my students exceeded one year of growth in reading. 80% of my students exceeded one year growth in Social Studies. I love helping students build their foundations in sight words, phonics, spelling, handwriting and writing.

For high school, college or adults - I currently work full-time as an Operations Specialist for a high-performing nonprofit team. In addition to that, I provide operations support for a 200-member gym community. In both roles, I create highly-organized, intuitive and user-friendly Excel, Word and PPT documents for these teams and groups to stay organized, efficient and effective. I LOVE building organized systems, trackers, spreadsheets and documents for business or personal.

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 was a kindergarten teacher for a high-performing charter school in Newark, NJ. I have an Masters in Elementary Teaching from RELAY Graduate School (founded by the the creators of a top performing charter school in the nation). In my last year of teaching 40% of my students exceeded their baseline-goal in reading (exceed one year's growth). Also, 80% of my students averaged above a B+ in Social Studies. I specialize in literacy subjects for K-2nd grade (sight words, phonics, spelling, writing, and critical thinking).

Fitness

I am Level 1 certified in Crossfit and have been training for over two years. I have been an assistant trainer for almost a year and am consistently a top performer among females in our gym. I have assisted for several fundamentals classes and have helped instruct nine basic and functional movement patterns for dozens of adults.

Handwriting

I have a Masters of Arts in Education from RELAY Graduate School of Education. I helped create handwriting lesson plans, worksheets and assessments for a kindergarten class of a high-performing charter school in Newark, NJ. The curriculum began with how to hold a pencil, handwriting, drawing and labeling, as well as practice in retelling a story with a beginning, middle and end.

Phonics

I have a Masters of Arts in Education from RELAY Graduate School of Education. I helped create curriculum, lesson plans, worksheets and assessments for a kindergarten class of a high-performing charter school in Newark, NJ. The curriculum included learning the sounds to the alphabet, sight words, CVC words (and more patterns of consonants and vowels), sounding words out, rhyming, etc.

Reading

I have a Masters of Arts in Education from RELAY Graduate School of Education. I helped create curriculum, lesson plans, worksheets and assessments for a kindergarten class of a high-performing charter school in Newark, NJ. We used a standardized STEP assessment to measure student growth over the year. Out of 30 students, 20% grew by 2 years in reading, 26% grew by more than 1 year in reading ability.

Study Skills

As a former teacher and current operations specialist for Teach For America, I specialize in building personal operating systems for efficiency and effectiveness. All of these things lead to being able to focus better. I have various tools for managing calendars, deadlines and can advise on how to build daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly routines that are easy and intuitive. I have led short and long sessions to help others improve their personal operating systems.
