About Lisa

As an elementary teacher for eight years, I applied a variety of strategies to aid students in learning. I've worked with children of all levels, including gifted students and those with special needs. I enjoy being able to help a child master a concept through traditional or non traditional methods. I recognize that each child learns in a unique way and as I work with your child I will adapt my methods to best serve him or her. I never give up on a student and I realize that everyone learns at their own pace.

Although I have not taught full time while I have been raising my daughter, I have filled several interim positions and have worked as a substitute, thus gaining experience with a variety of students. I have taken multiple education classes over the last twenty years, may focusing on diverse and special learners, as well as creative teaching strategies. I hope to work with your child to help him or her master subjects, learn new concepts, and reach his or her full potential!

In my free time I enjoy hiking, working out, catching up on the latest TV show, and spending time with my family and friends. I also love to travel and spend time with my wonderful cat, Ralphie, who my daughter and I hand raised after he was abandoned by his mother.

I look forward to working with you and your student in the near future!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been certified in elementary education for the past 26 years. I have kept my certificate current by attending continuing education classes after working in the classroom for 8 years. I have kept in contact with students by subbing and filling interim positions while taking time off to raise my daughter.
