Featured Review:

## Very effective.

Thomas, 2 lessons with LisaMy daughter's understanding of calculus -- and her grades in the class -- improved immensely with Lisa's help. I recommend her highly. She didn't just explain the concepts--she had a nice way of getting my daughter to work through the problems herself so that she understands the concepts more deeply.

I enjoy helping students reach their academic goals in high school and college math courses such as algebra 2, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus, AP Calculus AB / BC, Calculus 1 and 2, Calculus 3 (multivariable calculus), business calculus, and introductory probability theory. I began tutoring math when I was in high school, and have tutored during many of the years since.

## Incredibly knowledgeable and helpful

Lisa helped immensely in my understanding of my Calculus class. I went from a struggling student to a confident test-taker within only a couple of lessons. She was incredibly patient, and could walk me through any problem I could think of. Our set of lessons prepared me for the AP Calculus exam, as well as any smaller tests for the week. I would recommend Lisa to anyone who needs any tutoring on calculus topics.

## Amazing tutor!

Lisa helped my son review (or should I say cram) for his business calc final. He called me after he took it saying he knew he did really well. Lisa was incredibly patient and they communicated back and forth several times between sessions over a weekend. So glad we found her! Total grade-saver! Thank you Lisa!

Laura, 11 lessons with Lisa

## knowledgeable, patient, kind

lisa has been one of the best tutors for math. very patient and knowledgeable, i definitely have learned a lot from her sessions and was able to do really well in my calculus class after not taking math for three years. would definitely recommend her for a student who is new to calculus.

## Excellent Calculus 3 Tutor

Lisa has been a responsible, accessible, and prepared tutor for my daughter in Calculus 3. She adapted to her learning style, gave her a lot of resources to help learn, and was encouraging!

Elaine, 7 lessons with Lisa

## Calculus II

Lisa helped me understand some concepts I had been struggling with. It's been challenging taking an accelerated summer version of Calculus II with online classes only and no access to campus resources like study groups or the math lab at the university. Thank you for all the help!

Suzanne, 11 lessons with Lisa

## Skilled and knowledgeable tutor.

LIsa started working with my daughter for extra help with AP calc AB in early spring. She is a great tutor, explains things clearly and provides excellent examples and exercises for practice. Shortly after they started working together, schools shut down and went online in this area. Lisa was flexible as we negotiated the changes, and proved an invaluable source of instruction with the loss of classroom time. She was able to help our student complete the class and prep for the AP exam, which reduced the stress significantly. We highly recommend working with Lisa!

## AP Calc BC

My daughter is taking AP Calc BC this year. My daughter told me that she got a great understanding from tutoring with Lisa and figured out what concept she got it wrong. Her grade improved from 88 last semester to 92 this semester, so she ended up getting an A on AP Calc BC class!! We feel so blessed to find Lisa as the tutor for my daughter! Thank you, Lisa!

## Thank you Lisa

Thank you Lisa for being a great teacher to Christopher, he is really enjoying Calculus and having fun with it. He hopes to learn even more Calculus and higher levels of Math.

Sonia, 22 lessons with Lisa

## The best AP Calc tutor!

Lisa is such a. great fit as a tutor for my 17 year old taking AP Calculus. She teaches and clarifies topics well and sends plenty of practice problems and tests. Lisa is always available for additional questions and help outside of tutoring sessions too. Plus, she is just a super nice person.
