About Lisa

Does your child need extra support in Biology, Honors Biology, or AP Biology? Does your child need help preparing for the SAT Subject Test in Biology? I can help your child succeed. I also tutor college level introductory biology and can help you prepare for final exams.

I am patient and flexible and I employ strategies tailored to help individual students succeed.

I am a current private high school AP Biology teacher and an experienced tutor with a PhD from Columbia University. I can help by clarifying difficult concepts; by reviewing topics using additional worksheet materials and test questions; and by honing test taking skills. I am also experienced with helping students prepare for the SAT Biology exam as well as the new AP Biology exam, with great success.

Whether you are interested in on-going tutoring, or the occasional support, I can help your child reach the next level. Please contact me to schedule a lesson.

Approved subjects

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.

Great Tutor!

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!
