About Lisa

As a former Valedictorian of the College of Education at The University of Tennessee, I know that hard work leads to success in any endeavor, whether it is learning to read or preparing for the ACT. As a current kindergarten teacher, I know how to make acquiring new skills fun and exciting for little ones. And as a parent, I know how important it is to make certain each child reaches his or her full potential and feels satisfaction in so doing.

I look forward to working with you and your student as we discover just how brightly he or she can shine!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 1987 with a bachelor of science degree in elementary education. As the valedictorian of The College of Education that term as well as a veteran teacher with over sixteen years of classroom experience, I feel I am highly qualified to tutor elementary school children in a variety of subjects, enhancing both their confidence in themselves and their academic performance.

Phonics

As a veteran teacher and tutor with over sixteen years of classroom experience, I have taught countless children to read. Currently, I teach kindergarten at a private Christian school and have had much success with the Abeca phonics program. As I instruct my students in this area daily, I feel I am highly qualified to teach this subject.

Reading

Reading is my area of expertise. I love books myself and am never without one. I have taught countless children to read during my teaching career and feel it is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job!
