About Lisa


Bio

Hi! I have been an ESL and Spanish teacher for the past 10 years. I graduated with a masters in TESOL from Manhattanville College and received my BA from Cornell University, with distinction in all subjects. I love working with international students and meeting them where they are at, to take them from proficiency to beyond in their language skills. I enjoy learning about students' passions and strengths and interweave that into the process of teaching them English.

Hi! I have been an ESL and Spanish teacher for the past 10 years. I graduated with a masters in TESOL from Manhattanville College and received my BA from Cornell University, with distinction in all subjects. I love working with international students and meeting them where they are at, to take them from proficiency to beyond in their language skills. I enjoy learning about students' passions and strengths and interweave that into the process of teaching them English.

I have my certification in teaching ESOL, grades K-12. My former supervisor celebrated me for teaching one of the hardest classes at EF Academy where I worked, because of the differentiated instruction needed and how they learned a lot in that class and in their other content areas, as a result of it.

I have also taught Spanish during the past 10 years, focusing on Pre-K to 9th graders. During that time, I worked hard to create multi-sensory curriculum that involved vocabulary, acting, guided writing, translating, singing, drawing, dancing and doing projects. I am known as a teacher who gives 100%, for example in having cultural feasts for Spanish Heritage celebrations. I was also touted by my supervisor at Rippowam Cisqua school as preparing 4th grade students in the best way (I taught 2nd-4th) for their experience in 5th grade Spanish, as spoken by their 5th grade Spanish teachers.

When you begin to work with me, I will start to learn about you and some of your goals. For the sake of respecting my time commitment to other tutees, and my own schedule, please cancel or postpone a lesson 24 hours in advance or you will have to pay the price of the lesson, unless it is in the case of an emergency or illness. I would love to learn more about you and schedule some lessons!!

I have ten years of experience teaching both ESL and Spanish to children, teenagers and adults. I establish a firm connection with each student to identify interests and answer their questions such as "Why am I doing this?" "What are my goals?" and "Why is this important to me?" Using techniques such as SIOP and TPR (see below), we build background, link new learning to previous knowledge, grow vocabulary, read, listen and speak fluidly. As I work with you, your preferred learning style emerges, and we labor with an eye on that favorite style to maximize success and enjoyment. SIOP (The Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) is research-based and proven, 8 – Step instructional model for ESL learners. TPR (Total Physical Response) is a method for teaching ESL that coordinates language and physical movement for active effective learning.

Great Tutor, Great Results

Lisa tutored my son in 9th grade Spanish. He was struggling and needed additional support in conjugation, sentence structure and verb skills. Lisa worked with my son, proactively using different approaches for him to retain and understand this assignments. We saw a definite improvement in his grades and confidence level. Lisa also connected with our son's teacher to make sure she was aligned with his lesson plan. We were very pleased with her encouraging nature and our son also felt that her support helped him tremendously. I highly recommend Lisa.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Lisa is a wonderful teacher who my son works with on a weekly basis. She uses a variety of strategies and is extremely encouraging. My son is eager to learn with her for up to an hour. She is highly recommended.
