“**Very effective.**”

I enjoy helping students reach their academic goals in high school and college math courses such as algebra, algebra 2, college algebra, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus, business calculus, and probability theory. I began tutoring math when I was in high school, and have tutored during many of the years since.

I can tutor in person

My daughter's understanding of calculus -- and her grades in the class -- improved immensely with Lisa's help. I recommend her highly. She didn't just explain the concepts--she had a nice way of getting my daughter to work through the problems herself so that she understands the concepts more deeply.

Lisa is a bright and easy to work with teacher. My kids love her ability to "uncomplicate" math. She is very pleasant and very thorough. Try her and you will never regret it!

Lisa has worked with my daughter on Calculus for a few sessions now. She is knowledgable on the subject and flexible on the hours. Lisa is also very good with remote tutoring tools, and my daughter is making progress on her course.

Our freshman student seems to be doing well with the help from Lisa. I appreciate that Lisa is focused on the work and time, asking for chapter and book information to be prepared for her side of the tutor session. Hasn't always been that way with other tutors.

We did some programing on the Ti-84 calculator and she was very knowledgeable and made sure I understood each step of the program.

Thank you for the kind words! I'm glad you found our time together helpful. That was a fun programming challenge we worked on.

My daughter's confidence has gone way up and she has loved working with Lisa O!!! Thank you sooooo much.

My daughter, who is a sophomore at the Universty of Pennsylvania, needed to work with someone to prepare for her Calculus BC final, which she had postponed due to illness. We found Lisa on WyzAnt and she was terrific. When she couldn't get some of the problems during their first meeting, Lisa was kind and thoughtful enough to work them out after getting home and brought the answers to my daughter. She also took some of the practice tests home with her in order to prepare for their next session. We had only anticipated having Lisa tutor for a few hours, but we turned out having her come for 7 hours! She is very professional and extremely bright, and I highly recommend her.

Elementary Education:

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.
