About Lisa


Hope your day is going well!

I am an English teacher with over 23 years of teaching businesspeople, students and children in individual and group format. I speak Spanish, French, Portuguese, some Japanese, Greek, Farsi, Chinese, Hebrew, etc.

I love to teach both children and adults equally, and am funny and fun!

I have been cleared by the Department of Education to teach and have taught foreign businesspersons, small children and students. I also have a room in my house that I rent out to Japanese and Korean international students who are learning English. I have been doing this for 15 years and have also personally tutored in English conversation, grammar, accent reduction and TOEFL. I have taken courses in TESOL certification, and did two internships toward my certification;one in an adult ESL program where I taught 20 students at a time, and one in my school where I assisted in an class in ESL and music.

I currently have a permanent NY State Department of Education ESL teaching certification, which took me four years to complete, while working in my current position at Blue Data Institute, where I teach weekend classes to over 30 ESL students.

I have a B.A. from Hunter College, where I majored in Urban Affairs, English and Psychology and minored in media. I worked my way through school in various administrative positions, and taught one student English in exchange for Japanese, which is when I started tutoring, in 1992.

I have a certificate in Small Business Management from New York University, where I also took my real estate salesperson and brokers courses. I worked in the field of real estate rentals and sales for 10 years, at one point brokering 100 rent-stabilized buildings with my father in our company, Elias Realty. I have also worked in public relations, advertising and media sales.

I am very flexible and can accommodate you by either providing you with material to teach, or by using outside sources. I possess grammar books, dictionaries in French, Portuguese and Spanish, and textbooks in English language learning.

I think what makes me different is that I am a kid myself, and never stop learning!!

Hope your day is going well!
