About Lisa

Hello! I am a mother who helps her daughter with her own homework, so I know how frustrated children can become without support outside of school. I am currently a 4th grade Reading Specialist.
As an educator, I have also taught middle and high school students computer and business classes for the past five years. During this time, I also taught science and social studies to 5th graders and was assigned groups of 4th graders to improve their reading fluency. I worked with K5-3rd grade weekly, focusing on their math and reading skills. I love working with children and helping them be successful. My favorites parts of my day were watching students grasp the concepts we had been working on and seeing the light come on. I can't wait to continue to do this as a tutor.

I have PA Reading Specialist Certification, PA Elementary K-6 certification, PA Business certification and many years experience working with all ages of students.

I am patient and will work to find the way to improve a students path to success.

I have current Act 33/34 (criminal and child abuse) clearances as well as my FBI fingerprint clearance.

Please contact me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
