About Lisa

I have been committed to the field of Early Childhood and Special Education for 21 years and I am dually licensed in Elementary Education and Special Education. Teaching at the Early Childhood level affords me the best opportunity to have the greatest impact on my students lives. The most rewarding experience for me as a teacher is watching a child develop a love for learning through discovery and experimentation.

I am currently a Special Education teacher for a Kindergarten class in the NYCDOE. I believe very strongly in involving parents in the school community and nurturing and educating the “whole child”. I am also a Nassau County Approved Early Intervention Provider and have worked closely with many children on the Autistic Spectrum. I use many diverse learning strategies to help students who learn differently. I believe that every child can and will learn if we tap into their learning style!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
