About Lisa

Hola!

Tutoring is one of my passions and I have years of experience! I have been tutoring students since the beginning of college (2009). I have worked with high school students by tutoring them in areas such as Spanish, Math, Reading, Writing, ACT Prep, and college application processes. Since I am no longer in college and moved to the Twin Cities, I've been involved with tutoring and helping elementary students from ages 8 years old - 14 year old with reading, writing, vocabulary, general math, & basic algebra with a community outreach program. My other past experience with children includes working with the Y's Kids Program through the YWCA. I love working with students of all ages and I always present new and fun ways to learn.

I am also available to tutor Spanish for all ages (including adults). I have my bachelor's degree in Spanish (emphasis in Literature) and I studied abroad in both Santiago, Chile and Oviedo, Spain. I am a great tutor when it comes to formal written Spanish & conversational Spanish. I taught English to native Spanish-speakers at the YWCA for 2 years and I currently tutor several students of different Spanish levels.

I guarantee that I can help the student succeed in all of these areas (references available). Let's start learning.

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.
