Hello, my name is Lisa Vicino, and my superpower is teaching math to struggling students. I am happiest reading a great book or learning something new.
I tutor arithmetic, algebra, geometry, basic probability, and basic statistics for Middle School and High School Students, as well as students looking to become certified teachers.
I am passionate about helping my students develop their math sense, learn how to study math, and gain confidence in their mathematical abilities.
I make sure my students have a strong foundation in basic concepts, such as fractions, decimals, percents, and order of operations before we get started with more advanced math.
I was always very scared of math. It has been a struggle for me for years, and the encouragement that Lisa provided gave me so much more confidence, which I feel is a huge part of my success.”
Lisa listened to my needs and carefully constructed a plan that will lead me to success. With each topic, she made room to hear how I would approach the problem and supported me where needed. Thank you, Lisa!”
The biggest challenge I was facing was passing the Praxis for Middle School Math. I had taken it twice, once failing by only one point. I needed to pass the test to be able to begin my new career. Lisa helped refresh my memory on concepts that I had forgotten, and she was a constant source of encouragement throughout our time together. I appreciated her positive energy and ability to break down the content, so that I could understand it. I am now a 7th grade math teacher.”
