Encouraging and amazing tutor!
Lisa is basically re-teaching me basic math skills that I need in order to pass the NJ Praxis test, and she is just fantastic! She is extremely positive, and very encouraging. I’m not afraid to ask (what may seem to me) a question I should really know the answer to.
Lisa is great at explaining things in a way I understand, and she is a fantastic listener! I am way more confident in my ability to do math, and feel like I am really preparing for this test and that 4th time will be a charm!! — Angela
I never felt judged for not understanding a concept
My biggest challenge before working with Lisa, was passing my Math Praxis test for my teaching career. I have not had a math course since early college, and was really struggling to remember certain concepts on my own. Specifically algebra and geometry. With a month and a half of tutoring, I was able to pass my test with a score higher than I ever expected!
Before tutoring with Lisa, I was scoring between 134-145 on my Praxis test. I was able to bump my score all the way to 156 after working with Lisa. (a qualifying passing score in my state is 150) About a week or two later, I asked for a few more sessions to prepare for my second math Praxis, after only 3 sessions, I scored a 182. The qualifying score in my state for this test is 157. I was SO excited.
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 is a huge part of my success I feel.
Lisa’s caring nature made her so lovely to work with. Never did I feel judged for not understanding a concept and she made me feel so welcomed. She went above and beyond creating a learning space on Schoology, to provide me with practice tests, videos and notes.
Would I recommend Lisa for tutoring? Absolutely! — Julie
Lisa is an awesome teacher, and her classes are definately worth the time and money
I needed some help to take the Praxis Core Math test that required a lot of math skills I had forgotten, and get me one step closer to passing my state certification.
Prior to tutoring with Lisa, I had a lot of limiting beliefs about my math abilities. I thought I would never be able to learn so much in such a short period of time. In the beginning, I had zero confidence about my math skills.
My first lesson I could barely hold a conversation about a math problem. Toward the end of my tutoring, I saw a problem with fractions, and was 100% confident I could answer that. This is something I couldn’t do my first tutoring session with Lisa.
I have learned so much: math problems that I’ve haven’t done in 8+ years ago, and learning how to become a better test taker. I also learned how to keep my materials organized, and tricks on how to study. I can definitely use some of the techniques I’ve learned from Lisa in my classroom someday.
I really enjoyed working online with Lisa. I didn’t think online lessons could work, but it definitely was so easy. I liked that it was such easy access to my study materials, and everything was so organized. Her explanations of math problems were so easy to follow, and if I didn’t understand, she would find another way to explain it.
Lisa went above and beyond for me! She was available to take my phone calls, texts, and emails when I needed her. I also loved that she always believed in me, and encouraged me.
I would tell other people that Lisa is an awesome teacher, and her classes are definitely worth the time and money. Take me for example...my score improved 52 points!!! This is something I did not think was possible. To get results, stay focused, and put in the time between tutoring lessons to get the most of your tutoring sessions.
Positive attitude, made me feel 100% comfortable, and focused on my strengths
I have always struggled with dyscalculia, and the thought of doing any kind of math test terrified me. I had lost all my confidence after failing the Praxis Core Math twice (with the same score of 136), and had no idea how to study for it. I was in desperate need of a tutor that could be patient when working with me, and help me rebuild my confidence. I only had one month to pass this test, or I could not get into my college education program.
Before studying with Lisa, I really struggled with my confidence and letting math problems overwhelm me to the point of shutting down. After studying with Lisa, I was able to have SO MUCH MORE confidence, and passed my praxis core math! I raised my score 20 points in just one month. We conquered each subject, and I was able to retain the information unlike before!
Tutoring with Lisa has helped me be not only confident when doing math problems, but when I am also teaching math problems. I am now able to look at problem and conquer it without getting worried. I am also able to study more effectively, and give myself a break when needed.
I liked that she ALWAYS had a positive attitude, made me feel 100% comfortable, and always focused on my strengths. Lisa gave me AMAZING test taking tips.
100% worth it! I was able to raise my score 20 POINTS!! She is sooooo organized, and makes tutoring online run smoothly! If you are looking for a tutor to help you pass the Praxis Core Math, she’s your go to gal. — Madison
