Tutoring for the AP Exam and SAT Biology Subject Test $150/hour
Lisa was a great help on a last minute tutoring session before a Biology test. She was extremely knowledgeable and thorough in her approach. I would highly recommend her.
We have now worked with many tutors over the years. Lisa is, without question, the best we have had. As a teacher, she understands the subject matter and curriculum requirements. As a mother, she understands teenagers. Over the course of a semester of working with Lisa, our son went from failing his first biology exam to getting a 90 on the final!
She reviewed and taught new material to my daughter who missed several days of school due to injury. She engaged her into the material and moved along at a good pace, covering all key areas for an exam. Highly recommend
Lisa has a great disposition and knowledge of the subject matter. She has a logical approach that is not overwhelming.
I really enjoyed my session with Lisa - she was very knowledgable and helped me really understand plant biology. She was patient and very efficient in her teaching methods.
We are off to a good start. My AP Biology student feels she has an excellent resource who will help her have a successful year.
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.
