About Lisa

I believe that a strong education is one of the most important assets to success in life. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin -- Milwaukee with a double major in Biology and Conservation & Environmental Sciences. After college, I worked in the education department of a science museum and as a marine mammal trainer for seals and sea lions in Milwaukee, WI. I later pursued a teaching certificate at Concordia University -- Wisconsin to better my own education and learn the skills necessary to share my love for learning with others.

I am certified to instruct middle through high school biology and other life sciences courses and have two years teaching experience in a high school setting. My informal educational experiences paired with my classroom teaching experience gives me an alternative insight to educational success. I believe in challenging students to do their very best work and provide encouragement every step of the way. I excel in differentiation and am able to adjust curriculum and content to meet the level of my students to provide positive learning opportunities.

I specialize in supporting students in biology and other life science courses. Major topics of study include general biology, genetics, cell biology, ecology, evolution and zoology. My experience as a marine mammal trainer also allows me to support students in animal biology and basic psychology courses due to the nature of the animal training career. I have instructed biology courses for 9th-11th grade students and Project Lead the Way biomedical science courses geared toward 9th-12th graders.

I believe students need to build strong study skills and habits in order to excel in their coursework. I encourage students to find a method of studying that allows them to be successful while following their classroom curriculum in my study sessions.

I value feedback provided by my clients and believe there are always opportunities for growth. I am flexible and am willing to work with clients when it is convenient for them. If a session needs to be cancelled, I am happy to reschedule to another time provided I am given appropriate notice.

I look forward to hearing from you and am excited to help you succeed in exploring the wonderful world of biology!

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.

Biology

My undergraduate degrees were in biology and conservation & environmental science. I am a certified 6-12 biology/life science teacher with two years of experience. I am a marine mammal trainer with five years of experience, and I am an environmental educator with five years experience.

Genetics

I have taken college course work in genetics and have taught both Mendelian Genetics and Human Genetics in my high school classroom. I am participating in a teacher development workshop through San Diego Zoo Safari Park that will provide me with real-world data on their genetic research that helps provide conservation for animals around the world. I will be able to use these resources to help teach others about applied genetics. Genetics is one of my favorite subjects to teach, and I have many support materials that would help students succeed in this subject area.

Zoology

I focused on animal biology in college and was pre-vet for a portion of my undergrad degree. I have worked in a vet clinic as a vet assistant and worked five years as a marine mammal trainer of seals and sea lions at Oceans of Fun in Milwaukee, WI. I have extensive knowledge of animal histories and husbandry (medical care) of marine animals.
