About Lisa

With over 10 years of experience, I am eager to help your student succeed in school! I am a recent Princeton graduate (BSE Operations Research and Financial Engineering, minors in Teacher Preparation, Finance, and German Language). As part of the Teacher Preparation program (specialization in High School Mathematics), I was given the opportunity to teach lessons in multiple high school classrooms and learn about effective teaching methods that directly translate to the success of my tutees.

EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING:
Over the past ten years, I have independently tutored high schools students in Earth Science, Biology (honors), Chemistry (honors), Physics, English, SAT Prep, ACT Prep, and ALL levels of high school mathematics. I have also tutored Chemistry at the college level. My experience in the Teacher Preparation program taught me many teaching methods that I use while tutoring. I adapt my tutoring approach to every student as I learn about his/her learning style throughout our first session together.

On a voluntary basis, I have written English (vocabulary, writing, and grammar) and Study Skills curricula for middle schoolers in Princeton. Afterwards, I taught the two curricula to students in the classroom, both as a teacher and as a small-group tutor. The ability to adapt the curricula and my teaching style to fit the needs of the students is invaluable when tutoring. Additionally, I volunteered at an elementary school in Miami where I worked as a one-on-one and group tutor for reading, writing, and language development.

FLEXIBLE HOURS
I have availability both weekends and evenings during the week. I am happy to work with you or your student to find a time that works best.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chemistry

After taking Honors Chemistry in High School, I took Honors Chemistry at Princeton. I have tutored Chemistry at the high school Regents and Honors levels for seven years. In that time, I have prepared students for the Chemistry SAT II as well. At Princeton, I tutored students in both introductory and Honors Chemistry.

Geometry

I have tutored many students in Geometry over the past seven years. I am well-versed in the Common Core and Regents Geometry courses. Throughout high school, I won gold and silver medals in the Al Kalfus Math Fair with three different geometry-oriented projects.
