##### About Lisa

I recently was honored in Washington, D.C. as a recipient of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. I taught in the classroom for 8 years and have tutored for more than 10 years. I am currently staying home with my 2 1/2 year old son, while coaching figure skating. I have worked with students of all abilities.

Through being a Teacher Leader for Algebra 1 I have discovered the most common misunderstandings of students and worked towards diminishing these misconceptions. All students can be successful in mathematics. I have a love of geometry as well as other levels of mathematics, but Algebra 1 is where I most recently worked since the addition of common core math. Although I taught at the high school level, I see the groundwork is laid early on and have worked with students in the younger grades to give them a solid foundation. I will show students multiple approaches to problems so they gain a deeper understanding as well as send files or additional attachments if necessary. I look forward to working with students of all ages.

I have taught Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 at the high school level. I have tutored Middle School Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus. I may add other subjects, but for now I am focusing on Middle School, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra 1 as I want to first make sure I am well prepared for the curriculum changes that have occurred since the change over to common core math.

If you need help in your math class, or just want to stay ahead of the game contact me and we can schedule a lesson. I also can often do last minute lessons.
