About Lisa

Hi!

I look forward to meeting and working with you. I have tutored and taught at the college level and also have many years as an academic advisor for multiple universities at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. I enjoy helping students to find their niche and exceed their own expectations.

In addition to an undergraduate degree in English, I proofread and edit college textbooks and research publications as well as novels and short stories.

I worked in higher education for twenty years including more than seven years of transfer undergraduate admissions and graduate admissions at the University of California-Riverside, and Georgia Tech. In these roles I read hundreds of personal essays and presented workshops on what to do, and more importantly not do, when writing essays to the college of your dreams.

If you are interested in finding out if your needs and my skills are a good match, contact me! Right now I am only tutoring online, and primarily in the late afternoon and evening hours. Once established we can find a schedule that works well for both of us, which could include in person meetings.

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.

College Counseling

I worked for twenty years in higher education as an instructor, academic advisor, admissions decision maker, and other student affairs roles. I intend to use this area to assist students with their college admission essays or other related issues. My master's degree is in student counseling and personnel services for higher education.

Literature

My bachelor's degree is in English Literature focusing on American realism/naturalism, and British Literature including Shakespeare and the 18th and 19th centuries. I also taught American Literature at the college level.

Proofreading

I am a proofreader and copy editor of college level textbooks in the social sciences, mainly political science, sociology, and psychology.

Sociology

My minor as an undergrad was Sociology, and in graduate school I completed "all but thesis" for an MA in Sociology. Main areas of emphasis were deviance, juvenile delinquency, family, and social stratification. and I have previously taught classes in Introduction to Sociology and Social Psychology.

Awesome writing Coach

Lisa helped my daughter improve the clarity, grammar, and style of her writing. They worked on avoiding wasted verbiage, how to improve the flow and logic, and really what I would call artistry. Every essay my daughter writes for school has a word count limit. With Lisa's help, Maddy is learning to compose essays that say everything she wants, while staying under the given word limits, and th
