About Lisa

I have been a Teacher of the Deaf for 7 years and have worked in Houston, Texas, as well as here in the State of Wisconsin. I have a Bachelor's degree in Deaf Education and a Master's Degree in Special Education. I, myself am Hard of Hearing and am fluent in Sign Exact English (SEE) and am familiar with American Sign Language (ASL). I take pride in helping children with learning difficulties and disabilities in learning how to become productive members of society. I am an Itinerant Deaf Educator and work with CESA 6 in multiple districts. I provide direct instruction to students with Deafness and/or Hearing Impairments in grades: Kindergarten to 12th Grade.

I hold strong skills in reading, writing, language, comprehension, note-taking, organization and study skills. I also am knowledgeable of transitional (i.e., post-secondary settings, employment, etc.) topics for individuals with hearing loss and/or disabilities.

Each lesson will be based upon your student's learning needs. As a Special Educator, I am well aware that no child learns the "same" way and will do whatever I can to accommodate your child's learning needs. I am a very visual learner; therefore, my lessons tend to be more hands-on activities to engage the learner into a more interactive learning experience.

My primary objective is to help you, the student to develop a strong knowledge-base and understanding of language. This will help you to be more confident in your strengths, as well as help you to acknowledge what needs to be done to get better in areas where you feel you struggle (i.e., reading, writing, comprehension, note-taking, etc.). I will do whatever I can to help you achieve successful learning outcomes. Your successes may not happen over night, but I am willing to go the extra mile to help you reach your academic and personal goals. My promise to you, the student and their families is that I will do whatever I can to help make the student more comfortable in your own skin and more knowledgeable of your disabilities.

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.
