About Lisa

I have a true love to help others succeed. I have taught various middle school courses through college level. These courses consist of Basic Math, Intermediate Math, College Algebra, Calculus, Probability and Statistics, etc. Tutoring students has always been something that I enjoy as I see the value of small group dynamics over a classroom environment creating a higher ability to grasp math competencies.

I am dynamic and passionate at driving developmental growth in individuals and encouraging focus. I possess a high level of creativity who engages multi-level, cross-functional audiences in interactive discussions and hands-on learning in mathematical concepts.

I have developed and delivered various training programs throughout my career. I have achieved an 184 score on the Praxis II Middle School Mathematics Test (0069) with pass requirement of 152 as well as a high score on the Praxis II High School Mathematics Test (0061). I completed the First Days of School Fellowship Program offered through Rutgers University for Alternate Route 1A requirements.

Since 2008 I have taught college level mathematics courses and have positively impacted student’s success in the classroom. I engage students to realize math is all about building blocks and that math is actually like riding a bicycle - once you really learn it you never forget how to do it!

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 taught at the college level since 2006. I have a NJ K-12 certification for math. I am a very patient and understanding instructor who enjoys helping others learn. I am aware of many manipulatives that contribute to various learning methods. I am able to break down math into building blocks of learning to ensure a solid foundation. I have taught K-6th graders and know the right balance of encouragement to build confidence.

Praxis

I created two Praxis II courses; Middle School Math (00069) and High School Math (00061) and taught them through the Community Professional Program at County College of Morris. I personally took both tests and scored high on both exams. I am well versed in these courses and the course work I developed has allowed over 40 teachers pass the Praxis Exams. My courses were so well received that I had teachers take both to obtain both certifications.

Study Skills

I have experience working with children for increasing Study Skills as a result of coursework taken about Organizational Behaviour and Learning Outcomes. Students learn at different paces as well as different methods and determining the best fit method builds confidence and positive learning experiences for younger age students this in turn allows the student to overcome learning barriers that otherwise are encountered. I am confident that through working with a child student to develop Study Skills I can dramatically improve academic progress.
