About Lisa

My name is Lisa, and I have been teaching test prep and ESL to students in New York and Shanghai for the past four years. While abroad, I provided private reading comprehension and writing tutoring primarily to students in middle and high school preparing for the SSAT, SAT, and TOEFL. In the U.S., I have worked with middle school students to develop ISEE, SSAT, and SHSAT test-prep skills and school subject knowledge. My experience in assessment development at ETS has helped me gain insight regarding effective strategies for building the reading comprehension, vocabulary, writing and study skills necessary to improve grades and test scores.

I hold a B.A. in psychology and in English literature from New York University and am currently pursuing a master's in teaching ESL at Hunter College. My classroom experience ranges from kindergarten, where I helped newly arrived English language learners navigate the transition to school, through college, where I provided supplementary writing instruction to community college students. As a classroom teacher and tutor, I enjoy experimenting with pedagogical strategies and technology to engage students in the content and help them take ownership of the learning process. I strive to make learning effective, engaging and fun.
