With over eleven 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 eleven years, I have independently tutored high schools students in Earth Science, Biology (honors), Chemistry (Regents, Honors), Physics (Regents, Honors, and AP), 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 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.
I have availability both weekends and evenings during the week, both in person and on-line. I am happy to work with you or your student to find a time that works best.
Lisa is an excellent tutor. She's patient, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I've gotten great results working with her in both physics and trigonometry. I highly recommend her.Denise, 17 lessons with Lisa
Lisa was great at helping my daughter understand her lesson and understand the concept step by step. She was patient and the lesson made my daughter more confident in geometry. Will be using her again for sure!Debbie, 2 lessons with Lisa
Lisa helped me understand SIN and COS and walked me through problems I didn't previously understand. She was great and very nice and was understanding of my level. She made comparisons and analogies to help me understand real life examples.Janet, 45 lessons with Lisa
Great College Chemistry Tutor
Lisa helped me review topics from College chemistry that I could not figure out. She is patient and was very helpful. I would recommend her. I was able to communicate with her with ease.Michelle, 3 lessons with Lisa
She re-enforced whatever was taught in school by diving deeper into the topic and taught different ways to solve a problem. She is very good in explaining the reasoning behind the problem.Jessie, 7 lessons with Lisa
great tutor! highly recommend her
Lisa is very patient and promotes a positive attitude. She used multiple methods to explain a problem (ex: visuals coupled and real-life scenarios to make sense of the problems)... Great tutor- highly recommend her!Melissa, 10 lessons with Lisa
Excellent tutor for Chemistry
Lisa is prepared, brings very helpful materials to the session, outlines the important topics and does a great job teaching those topics. she is patient and professional. We are lucky to have found her for chemistry regents prep!. We will definitely use her again.!Karen, 2 lessons with Lisa
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Lisa worked with me on ACT preparation. She helped with both math as well as the English portions of the test. In addition to sample questions she showed me other strategies to improve my score.Russ, 6 lessons with Lisa
Lisa helped my daughter to get a 94 on her Algebra regents. She was so patient and easy to work with.I would definitely use her again and recommend others use her.Dana, 15 lessons with Lisa
Fantastic Tutoring Skills and Knowledge of Tests
I cant begin to say how lucky we are to have found Lisa on WyzAnt. I have to be honest, I saw Princeton and someone who has not so long ago been through these exams and said this must be it for my daughter. My daughter needed someone she could relate to and Lisa was it! We had other tutors that my daughter (and my wife and I) were not happy with. When we found Lisa we only had about 8 weeks until the next test to get my daughters ACT grades up. Lisa and my daughter met for 2 hours once a week (1 hour math and 1 hour English). It was the only time I can ever remember where my daughter did not complain about the tutor and never once complained about how 2 hours was too long. She enjoyed being with Lisa so much and learned so much from her. Lisa gave her excellent advice on how to take these tests. She also was very good at giving my daughter the mental confidence she desperately needed, which is way beyond the role of a tutor. My daughter moved her math score from a 22 to a 26 in this short period of time. Overall she moved her composite grade up 2 points. If we had found Lisa earlier and had a bit more time, I am confident these scores would have gone even higher. We are so thankful for finding Lisa and the gift she gave our daughter by opening up more college opportunities for herself. Thanks Lisa!Jay, 7 lessons with Lisa
