I grew up bilingual in English and German, have a degree in Language, and obtained a Masters degree in Germany. I have years of experience teaching English and German, working in Germany as a language teacher, and teaching all ages, children and adults. I have experience in the areas of reading, writing, speaking, test prep, presentations, grammar, pronunciation, business language, proofreading, etc. I also have experience working with foster children, refugees, and learning and behavioral difficulties.

I am passionate about teaching others and also have experience teaching art, skiing, nutrition, and horseback riding. I have a wide variety of interests and love sharing my interests with others- teaching is a wonderful outlet for sharing, expanding knowledge, and making meaningful connections.

I am able to be fairly flexible with lesson times and adaptable with lesson content. It is important to me to make learning fun and to provide each individual with the ideal lessons to meet each student´s personal needs and goals. Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or would like to talk about scheduling a lesson. I will ensure to reply to messages promptly. I look forward to hearing from you!

Excellent Proof-Reader and Resume Editor

Lisa was wonderful in helping me build a resume. She went over my old resumes and mentioned things I could do to improve them. My resume looks sharp now. She also assisted in writing and proof-reading cover letters for different positions I am applying for. I feel much more confident in my job search.

Best Tutor Yet

Lisa worked with my elementary german student to help him develop some study strategies, clarified some misunderstandings and most importantly gave him the confidence he needed to head into his first college exam! He was very pleased we found Lisa and we will definitely meet with her again as he progresses to the next levels.

patient tutor

she taught English 102 . she a very good teacher tutor. she is the best you can get. she would patiently help you figure out what you have to do and also help you outline your homework so you can follow it. she would literally help u out but not do it in the sense of cheating but more like help you get your thoughts out

She's the best!! <3

Lisa has been tutoring our daughter in German for a couple months now. She's been so great and patient with us. As you can imagine, we have had quite a few hiccups with balancing distance learning and extracurricular activities. Lisa has been wonderful through it all though. Our daughter grasps more and more of the language each week with just 1 hour sessions. She has also learned better study habits and organizational skills. We would definitely recommend her!
