My tutoring focuses on teaching children how to think critically and creatively with each subject I teach. One of the best gifts, I can pass on to the next generation is to model, train, and teach children how to think creatively and critically not only academics, but also in life.

My approach to learning:
Each lesson I tutor your child in is tailored made to your child's learning style. Each lesson is documented with content taught, tutor feedback, suggestions, and homework focus for the week. Each customized learning plan is specifically taught to your child. I measure prior learning through a pre-assessment test and assess learning progress through various benchmark exam to make sure the agreed upon learning goals have been met.

My background:
I graduated from the College of Charleston with both a Artium Baccalaureus in Classical Studies and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education in 2005. I also earned a minor in English. I taught for three years in the Charleston County School District prior to relocating to the Charlotte area. I left the classroom learning environment to home educate my four children. I have two years of tutoring experience working with a North Carolina based tutoring company. I am now embarking on my own to share my love of learning with others.

Elementary (K-6th)

My second bachelor's degree is in Elementary Education. I taught in an elementary school for four years. I have tutored ages from PreK through 5th for the past ten years. In mathematics, I use a spiraling skills based approach with a mix of real world application when possible. For Writing, I used the Institute for Excellence in Writing approach. (I am currently working on my certification.) For science and history, I use a blend of project / inquiry based learning with reading integration. In reading, I use the 4 block method of reading combined with quality literature to build students fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary skills.

Wonderful!

Lisa was so great with our daughter and was available on short notice for her. Our daughter loves her teaching method and found it very effective. Our daughter loved Lisa’s personality and said she’s a very kind person and fun to work with. We feel very lucky as chemistry is everything!

Wonderful writing teacher

Lisa is a wonderful writing teach. My son learned a lot and always looks forward to the next session. She also follows up thoroughly and sends additional resources.

Math tutoring

First-class tutor. Lisa's ability to meet my son where he is and build his confidence in math was so good. If you're looking for a math tutor Lisa is the one. Lisa helped my son with his pre-algebra work, and i was happy with the results.

Wonderful with my 9 year old!

Lisa is positive, organized and prepared. My 9 year old son, who is "2e- ADHD/Gifted" is working with her on Latin, Writing and Grammar, none of which are my son's favorite subjects, but he's clearly learning and is very positive about his time with Ms. Lisa (which is not to be taken for granted). She's been a perfect match to support our family's classical-leaning homeschooling approach.

Excellent Tutor, very patient and encouraging!

Lisa is an excellent tutor. She is encouraging, positive, and my son's grades have risen in the short time we have been using her services! Many thanks!

Very Patient and Caring

Lisa has been great to work with my homeschooler who has struggled some with Latin and has difficulty getting assignments completed and in on time. She has been great to keep me in the loop and help hold my daughter accountable. She gives her the instruction and support she needs to understand the subject. My daughter loves the way she explains things and finds her very helpful.

Patty, 19 lessons with Lisa

Very thorough !

Lisa is very helpful. In addition to assisting both of my children with 2 different levels of Latin she has provided additional online resources as well as reference charts to assist with homework. Both of my high school kids are relieved when Lisa comes to tutor. Everyone walks away happy. Mom too!
