Students hate writing because they’ve been disenfranchised. They are told to write about things that are of no interest to them. Or they are continually drowned in a flood of suggestions and critique. I helped students who think they hate to write by helping them see that writing is an extension of their interests. I use what a student loves to break through and help them see that writing can be meaningful to them, not just an assignment from the teacher.

I understand that skills taught does not equal skills learned and that every person needs his or her own personalized approach to learning. Therefore, everyone receives an individualized program geared to his or her needs and interests. With a mindful approach, we can get to what’s really going on and make learning moments easier for everyone.

About Lisa

With over two decades of teaching experience, I help students get in touch with how they learn best. My services are tailored to each individual because the process of writing can reveal specific barriers to, and opportunities for learning and growing. I use mindfulness as a tool: I actively listen

My second grader joined one of Lisa's writing classes. It was 3 kiddos and they all LOVED! Even over zoom, Lisa made a connection with my child who simply adored her. After just a few lessons, my child said, "Lisa makes me feel like I'm a real writer." For a child who was a reluctant writer, I do not think think there is higher praise! I saw my child both become inspired to write and grow in confidence. I recommned Lisa without reservations!
Fang
My child started working with Lisa a few years ago. We felt at that time his school was not able to provide sufficient curriculum and support both for reading and writing. Lisa is very skilled in gaining trust with us and has been really flexible in tailoring the work based on the needs and providing excellent teaching and coaching for my child. He has thrived over the past couple of years in reading comprehension, and has made significant strides in becoming a more confident writer. With Lisa's help, my child was able to attain great results in standardized tests. Thank you, Lisa.
Desiree
My introverted 8 year old found a small group that she could flourish with under Lisa's tutelage. Lisa introduced topics that kept the kids engaged and excited, and my daughter's writing continued long after the class was over. She was so excited about what she had written, she even shared some of her writing from this class with her regular school class! Lisa presents the material in a level appropriate and fun way, encouraging the students to create without fear of mistake, and with gentle guidance to the correct style or form.

I hold a Doctorate degree in Educational Leadership and Curriculum & Instruction. The focus of my dissertation was the impact of education on Latino students from a representative bureaucracy perspective, centered on determining to what extent Latino representation in governance influence Latino students’ graduation rates in public high school in two counties in New York. Accordingly, my research interests include teachers-as-researchers, examining ethnic identity, biculturalism, development of children of color, social and cultural theory, Latino and Afro-Latino studies, race and ethnicity (with a focus on Afro-descendants in and from Latin America), urban sociology, education policy, educational leadership, Culturally-Responsive Teaching, and transition to college initiatives.

Taylor really enjoyed her session with Ms Marie, she stated she felt inspired to do better. Looking forward to another lesson.
Lorraine R.
I've had the pleasure of working along side Marie as a colleague. I was able to witness first hand her compassionate nature and her dedication towards her students and towards teaching. She sets the bar high for her students but helps them along in a caring and patient manner so that they can achieve all their goals. She is knowledgeable and experienced in her subject matter and I have no doubt that she can help your child reach success.

I had Ms. Marie for French and she was one of my favourite teachers. The amount of patience that she had with some of my very troublesome classmates was very inspiring because I always wondered how was she able to keep her composure so well. Her teaching methods worked and she always taught in a manner in which you would have no choice but to learn

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."
