Private Writing Teacher

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 have tutored multiple students in writing from young beginners to older students working on high school and college essays or prep for the SAT. Generally, I work with students on their current homework, but have plenty of other writing tools we can utilize.

About Debbie

Tutoring has been a major part of my life for over 7 years and I love it. Seeing the excitement in a student's eyes when they finally get something they've struggled with is why I do what I do. My strength is in getting to know the way a student learns best and finding techniques that support that

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

"Wow! Very thorough and caring professional. Interested in evaluating where the individual's writing skills are; what are their goals; and how to develop a lesson plan based on the age and school district requirements.
