I have been a teacher for almost 30 years. My experience has crossed many areas. I am certified to teach both general education and special education. I taught in New York City for many years before home-schooling my own three children. I now substitute teach and home instruct in 2 local districts where I have also done long term assignments. I am also currently teaching Foreign Language for children and adults at a Language Center. I have taught all elementary subjects, as well as, middle school and high school English, math, foreign language and history. I also have experience teaching ESL. I have done both RCT and Regents preparation and have experience with the Common Core curriculum.
My special education background has afforded me the ability to easily tailor my teaching approach to fit any student's needs.

Pleasant Experience

I was extremely pleased with Lisa's method of teaching Italian. She is very organized in presentation and the lesson seemed to just fly by. I left feeling that I had confidence in learning the subject of the lesson. I highly recommend her as a tutor.
