About Valisa

I am a disabled retired educator specializing in adult education. I have worked with adults that are recovering from having a stroke, have ADHD, or have learning disabilities. I use their strength to work with the area in which they need improvement. I have taught all grades in my 26 year career in the classroom and completed 10 years as a private tutor. I encourage everyone that has a desire to move forward to pursue it. If you are willing to try, you will be surprised at how much you can achieve.

I have also worked in test preparation areas including CRCT, ACT, SAT, and GED. Everyone needs a little help at one time or another and I can offer assistance in a variety of subjects. This past semester I tutored a kindergarten student, 5th grader, college student, a home schooled 3rd grader and an older adult (in her fifties), working on her GED. I know that there are a variety of learning styles, I focus on the one that works best with your ability and make progress from there. The next step is your decision, I believe you are closer to success than you were before you read this response. Give yourself the advantage and take this step into your future.

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.

Piano

I was a double major in college: Education and Music. I designed, developed, and implemented the music curriculum for Urban Day School and taught music at all grade levels K-12. This included theory, concepts and performance. I played piano, autoharp, and recorder and I was selected to go on both European and Domestic tours as a soloist. Whether classical or contemporary, music has the ability to move us to another time and place, and take us on an emotional journey.
