About Lisa

Hi- I am Ms. Lisa and I am here to help your student conquer Common Core and be confident! I am a recently retired educator with 24 years of teaching experience in some of the best public elementary schools in Georgia. I love helping students with all subjects especially Math, Reading, Science, and Social Studies. I am here in the Macon, Georgia area and can meet you at a variety of times and days of the week.

Parents, I will work with you to understand the " how" and "why" of Common Core and help you gain skills to assist your child. I am also willing to meet with your child's teacher for a session. Students, I will help to to gain strong skills needed to move to the next task, grade, and test!

I have 24 years of teaching experience with intermediate Elementary Math instruction, including Common Core Math. The last 10 years I worked primarily with Early Intervention students in small group settings using manipulative and other hands-on strategies to help students make concrete connections to build their deeper understanding of concepts. With the exception of rote memorization of Math facts, I do not do a skill and drill approach. I work with individuals to help diagnose weaknesses and to fill in gaps.

In Common Core after 2nd grade, students are expected to begin analyzing texts, reading for meaning, and making connections. They are expected to use complete sentences to talk about and write about texts, both fiction and non fiction. This can be challenging to a novice reader. I like to use prereading questions to help students to begin to think while they are reading rather than just calling words. It takes practice with a teacher modeling these thought processes. I will help your child to navigate through challenging passages and come out of the other side with understanding and an ability to articulate their understanding.

Common Core is like building blocks, each year builds upon the previous. It utilizes specific types of questioning and thinking skills. I taught the last five years in a local system through Common Core strategies. My students, though they were in need of extra support, rarely failed their CRCT. In fact most of them made significant gains year to year. I understand the rigor of the curriculum and have many tools to help your student grow.

I love seeing the light go off when a child learns. I believe every student can learn. I have taught grades 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and I prefer to work in small groups or with individuals to really hone their minds.

I worked for 9 years in Bibb and Wilkinson counties and for 15 years in Monroe County. I am excited to help you learn and have many ways to make that happen.

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.

Common Core

I taught Common Core Math and Reading to Early Intervention students and other struggling students in small group settings for the last 5 years of my 24 years of teaching. I am very familiar with the components of the curriculum and the objectives. I am adept at using the manipulatives and pictorial representations in Math and the thinking map and question stems in Reading to bolster understanding. I have a great deal of time and experience especially in 3-5th grade Math and Reading.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am very familiar with the components of the curriculum an the continuity of the objectives from grades 1-5. I have taught children in each of these grade levels (1st-5th) and had most of them several years in a row as I continued to support them through school. This allowed me the unique opportunity to gain experience in all levels and subjects that an elementary student might encounter. I have a great deal of time and experience especially in 3-5th grade Math and Reading.

Extremely familiar with the Common Core Curriculum and how to develop the rigorous thinking skills needed to succeed.

Homeschool

I have worked with multiple homeschoolers in the last year in Math and Reading and Art. I will assist parents in learning new ways to intervene and reach students. I believe in all forms of schooling- online, public and homeschooling - as viable options to achieve goals.

I adapt my instruction and support to whatever curriculum (Abeka, Saxon, etc.) that the students are currently using.
