About Lisa

I am a veteran elementary school teacher with 27 years experience. I have a masters degree in teaching English to second language learners, and I specialize in reading and writing. Primary grades Kindergarten through second grade are my favorite ages to teach.
I also have experience in tutoring. This experience includes helping frontload students to prepare for the next grade level, and improving reading levels. What I enjoy most about tutoring is the one-on-one attention I am able to provide students outside a busy classroom setting. Seeing noticeable gains is very rewarding too!

I have a masters degree in second language learners. The practices I learned from that degree, I believe, are best practices for all learners.

During my teaching career, my students consistently mastered grade level spelling lists and beyond.

I am a lifelong learner with a thirst for knowledge. Please contact me so I can help you achieve the knowledge you need/wish for!

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 have a bachelors degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in child development from the University of Northern Colorado. Additionally, I taught grades Kindergarten, first, and second for twenty-seven years. During that time, my students excelled in reading, writing, spelling, and English language development.

Handwriting

I taught handwriting as part of my literacy block for the majority of my twenty-seven years of teaching. It was only in the last few years of my career that the district no longer felt it was a vital part of the literacy block. I still believe it is an integral part of eye/hand coordination, and writing development.

Study Skills

I believe study skills can be successfully taught even in the younger grades. When standardized tests took off, we were required to teach basic study skills in Kindergarten and first grade. I believe this makes students more successful test takers in the upper grades. Additionally, I have numerous experience proctoring tests.
