About Lisa

I am a licensed high school teacher with 12 combined years of tutoring and teaching experience. I enjoy seeing students learn and achieve their goals. I have tutored or taught life sciences such as biology, advanced biology, anatomy & physiology, environmental science, and genetics; physical sciences including earth science, chemistry, physics, and astronomy; English grammar, writing, and literature; and math as algebra and geometry.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Biological Science with a minor in Chemistry and am currently working on a Master's degree in Education. I plan to earn a second Master's degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology.
Outside of academics, I am a skilled knitter, sewer, and baker. I have won multiple blue ribbons in local county fairs and at the Illinois State Fair.

I hold a degree in science and have taught high school science for the past 8 years. I have tutored science, math, and English for 8 years.

During the summer months, I am available at any time every day of the week. During the school year, I am available after school and at night. I am very flexible in my availability.

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.
