About Lisa

I am from Atlanta, GA, got my bachelors in Neuroscience from Emory University, Masters of Biomedical Sciences from Midwestern University and am currently a first year dental student. Yes, I have been in school for a long time, and though it was not all easy sailing, I can say looking back now, all the hard work was completely worth it! I have an extensive background in math, biological sciences, and writing. I worked as a private tutor to students grades 8-12. In addition to providing supplemental help with school subjects, my goal as a tutor is to help students figure out their learning styles and achieve effective study skills. The key to success is to understand how to navigate through course work and find the best way to learn and retain information that best fits each individual. Only when a student understands how to study well, can he or she enjoy the process of learning, and I believe that I can help students find that.

My favorite thing about tutoring is to see students improve and have that translated on to their grades and performance. I understand how difficult the education system could be, but with the right resource, support and hard work, students will be able to maximize their potential and achieve great things. I believe that I can help provide all of the factors mentioned and more. Any success that I have achieved, I did not achieve them alone. Let me be a part of your education journey to help you achieve the goals and results that you want.

A teacher once told me that the most successful people are not those that never fail, but those who fail and get right back up and continue. Be perseverance in the face of challenges, because these challenges are what makes you better. Your hard work will pay off, and I can help you clarify topics in a clearer approach, and learn how to study more effectively in order to achieve the grades that you want.
