My love for learning has lead me to the love for teaching! As a mom of three and private school teacher for more than ten years, I have been blessed to engage students in their most difficult tasks with success. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design, including Minors in Child Development and Art History, as well as continued studies in Writing, Business and History.
During my years teaching from Pre-K through High School, I have focused much of my energy working with students with special learning needs in math, reading, writing and study skills. What this has allowed me to do is differentiate learning for every student. I understand learning is a process unique to each and every person and that finding success and confidence may take attempting a number of different methods. With my arts background, I allow myself to remain creative and solution-oriented for my students and my philosophy is Socratic in nature; allowing questions to lead my students to the end result!
I approach learning in a gentle manner. I feel it is critical for my students to be able to discuss and establish personal goals in order to see their success. My role is to support them through excellent achievement!
My tutoring policy is this: Come with a great attitude. Expect to work hard. Be willing to try new ideas!
In the event of cancellation, I will give you the courtesy of a 24-hour notice, as I would expect from you, too.

First day "Meet and Greet" with your student is FREE. In order for them to feel comfortable on day 1 of tutoring, it's best we meet for about an hour to "chat" and set some goals together!
I was concerned that my daughter would be shy or not respond well to bringing a tutor into our home. Lisa was so sweet, thoughtful, and patient that my daughter opened right up to her and was very receptive to learning from her. Lisa brought my daughter a special notebook with stickers for her to decorate and then write words that she did not understand while reading. Lisa helped my daughter by making reading fun. Usually my daughter would want to stop reading after 10 min. With Lisa, she read for an hour and didn't want to stop. I would highly recommend her as a tutor to anyone.
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.
I have 10+ years experience in the private school sector teaching all subjects to elementary school students including math, science, writing, editing, history and spelling/vocabulary. I have a BFA in Art with a concentration of studies in Child Development and Early Childhood Education.
I am currently teaching Writing and Middle Ages History to a class of 12 students in a private school in Morristown, NJ. I also teach History and English to a group of 7th & 8th grade students, too.
I currently tutor 2 students in Math and English after school several days a week, seeing excellent test results with my teaching strategies.
To date, I am fully approved by WyzAnt in individual subjects at this level.
