Bio

I love Math and Reading, and you can too. I believe that every student has the ability to learn. As a tutor, my job is to patiently work with you as you tackle challenging concepts. I break these into smaller learning objectives. I highlight your strengths to build confidence so you can work on and improve the areas that you struggle with.

I love Math and Reading, and you can too. I believe that every student has the ability to learn. As a tutor, my job is to patiently work with you as you tackle challenging concepts. I break these into smaller learning objectives. I highlight your strengths to build confidence so you can work on and improve the areas that you struggle with. I use encouragement and humor to prevent you from burning out during our sessions.

While attending college, I discovered my love of learning and helping others to learn. I worked for Middlesex County College as a peer English and Math tutor. I also assisted students with how to use Word and Excel in the English Department Computer Lab. I graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors from Kean University thanks to my determination and study skills. I informally worked with my classmates when they had difficulty with English, Reading, Math, Science and various Business courses. After college I have worked with Elementary, High School and College students helping them with their various Math courses and test preparation for the Praxis, SAT, ACT, GMAT and GRE.

I work with students online and at the Sayreville and Old Bridge Libraries.

Reading

Reading

I have experience helping students learn to read and deepen their comprehension. In one instance, I worked with an adult who had never been able to read beyond a third grade level. He always felt that the letters got all jumbled up when he tried to sound them out, so we worked with sight words, and his reading began to improve. The use of sight words also helped him to improve his spelling. I believe that everyone should have the ability to read, and I am passionate about helping those who cannot or who struggle. For struggling readers, I use the Barton Reading & Spelling System.

I have been tutoring children and adults in various math, English, science and history subjects on the K-12 and college level for many years. Not only did I graduate from High School, but I graduated from college with a 4 year degree while maintaining a GPA high enough to graduate with honors. I feel that I am most skilled at helping adults with basic skills and High School subjects, because I take the time to find out what they are good at and then build on those strengths. Each victory increases their confidence, so they are ready to handle more difficult topics. I support them each step of the way on their learning journey.

Fun and helpful

My daughter had her first lesson with Lisa and fun was her words. She enjoyed Lisa and how she took time to explain the steps in math problems. I'm excited to continue because she ask me when is the next lesson.

Thank you. In addition to helping students understand the subjects they are studying, I find building their confidence so important.

Very knowledgeable tutor

Lisa taught geometry well. She went from the basic concepts and focused on topics well. I feel she helped me gain a much better understanding of the topic. Overall an excellent tutor.

Very patient and polite teacher

Thank you for the review. I really enjoyed working with you too.

Amazing tutor

Lisa helped me study for the CAT placement test for CUNY universities. She helped me with the math portion (Algebra) of the test. She was very patient, knowledgeable, understanding, helpful, and intelligent. She explained everything in terms I could understand and helped me with feeling confident for my test. I would highly recommend Lisa. I went in very rusty on my alegbra and now feel much better. She is an amazing tutor that really helped me for this test. I couldn't have asked for anyone better. I feel very confident after studying with Lisa. Thank you!!

Very Professional!!!

I'm very pleased with the session. :) We covered a lot in just one hour. Her worksheets, website, and study guides were great resources to study for the Praxis Core. I was a bit scared to try online tutoring, but there is nothing to worry about if you have Lisa as your tutor.

Thank you so much. It is a pleasure working with you, and I wish you great success when you take your exam.

Awesome!!

Let me start by saying she is very professional, and prepared. Which is a major plus. During our lesson Lisa, was extremely patient with me and very helpful. We reviewed geometry for my upcoming praxis exam. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a math tutor.
