Each month, I teach focused units in English usage and mechanics, writing, reading, spelling and vocabulary, and test preparation. Message me to learn the current month's units as well as...

Great tutor

Lisa helped my daughter to be more confident approaching the ACT test and I want to thank her for that. From not believing in herself being good enough in English to now being fearless for the upcoming ACT test speaks volumes. Thank you Lisa!

Connie, 3 lessons with Lisa

Wonderful to work with!

Lisa did a great job helping my son prepare for his ACT. He was a bit defeated after not getting the score he hoped for on his first testing attempt. We decided to get him a tutor before trying the test again. Lisa helped build his confidence and he really enjoyed working with her.
