About Lisa


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 use encouragement and humor to prevent you from burning out during our sessions.

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

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. I have a system for helping students read more fluently while improving their reading comprehension. I can also help with phonics, phonemic awareness, spelling and vocabulary.
Spelling,

Spelling

I believe knowing how to spell is such an important skill to possess. I read daily, and whenever I come across a word of which I am not familiar, I look it up. I have worked with children and adults to improve their spelling, which aides them in reading, writing and comprehension.
Vocabulary

Vocabulary

Because I read everyday, I come across new words often, and I take the time to look them up and how they were used. I believe the best way to build your vocabulary, is to take the time to become familiar with every new word that you come across. I encourage my students to do the same, and I show them how to do this in a way that doesn't feel like a chore.

First time tutoring

I had no clue where to start with online tutoring. Lisa reached out to me after seeing my post for sincere help. She also replied sincerely and with depth. I am so thankful for her care and concern for my issues and for what I must accomplish. Lisa makes lessons easy to follow and stress free!! Please contact her for your tutoring needs!!

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Lisa helped me gain confidence in math. She is flexible and patient. She gave me the support I needed during our first session as well as practice math problems to do on my own.

Carrie, 4 lessons with Lisa

Knowledgeable and patient teacher

Lisa listened to my need and carefully constructed a plan that will lead me to success. With each topic, she made room to hear how I would approach the problem and supported me where needed. Thank you, Lisa!

Tutor responded:

I am happy to hear that you felt heard and supported during your lesson. Both of these are key to creating a successful learning environment.

Encouraging and amazing tutor!

Lisa is basically re-teaching me basic math skills that I need in order to pass the NJ Praxis test, and she is just fantastic! She is extremely positive, and very encouraging. She doesn't move onto another concept unless I fully understand the one prior, and I'm not afraid to ask (what may seem to me) a question I should really know the answer to. Lisa is great at explaining things in a way I understand, and she is a fantastic listener! I am way more confident in my ability to do math, and feel like I am really preparing for this test and that 4th time will be a charm!!

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

She is teaching my elementary school kids math and language. I am very satisfied as she has a very good temperament to work with kids and my kids have shown improvement in both subjects. Happy to find her.
