About Lisa

Helping students excel is paramount, and assisting in that literacy mission is my goal. I grew up in a rural town in Louisiana with very little resources, but I worked hard to gain the knowledge necessary to be among the top of my class in elementary, middle, and high school. I went on to college and continued on the road to excellence. These foundational aspects allowed me to transition smoothly into a journalism career as a writer and copy editor.

Now I've moved on to my second passion as a teacher, applying my skills and education to helping others excel. Through teaching and tutoring, I'm able to guide others through the process of building and sharpening their skills, so they can master reading, writing, and comprehension. This also leads to higher-level critical thinking and creativity, and confidence. Let me help you on your road to excellence.

I am a certified English Language Arts teacher, who has a wealth of experience in tutoring, writing, copy editing, newspaper design, and book editing. Please let me help you increase your reading comprehension levels (Lexile levels), critical thinking, grades, and test scores. This will boost your literacy confidence and love for reading.

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.

ACT English

In helping students master the English section of the ACT assessment, I manage to boost their confidence with lessons that meet them where they are and take them to higher levels. As a Certified English Language Arts Teacher, who has taught students for years and has worked as a journalist for more than 20 years, I assess students' knowledge and teach them research-based strategies that are proven to help them retain information and increase test scores. To solidify my skills, I am working through a Master's of Arts in Education program.

ACT Reading

To help students gain confidence, techniques, and comprehension skills that will allow them to master ACT Reading assessments, I will utilize my certified English and Reading skills.
