Lisa, I hired Lisa to tutor my son for the ACT's. She is always on time and prepared with mock tests. My son struggles with English and grammer and Lisa has helped him gain understanding and that has empowered him to take the test with confidence. I would recommend Lisa to my friends without hesitation.Apr 18, 2017
Lisa is one of the best writing tutors that I have ever had. She is smart, kind, and believes in every single one of her students. I first started working with Lisa to prep for the ACT. She always believed in me and encouraged me to keep working towards my goals. After getting through the ACT, Lisa helped me with my college application and supplemental essays. She helped me to get my vision into solidified and ideas. She has a hyper focus on making sure that her students voice is heard. Her respect and confidence in me is what made me believe in myself and my work.Oct 30, 2016
I have received help with multiple writing assignments in school, ACT tutoring, and supplement and college essay help. I do not know what I would do without Lisa! She has helped me go from a B english student to an A student. She has also done a great job working with me on my supplements and college essay. My english teacher and college counselor loved them! For my ACT scores, she helped me get a 33 on my first ACT in the reading section and helped me go from a 24 to a 35 in the english section.Oct 19, 2016
Lisa has provided wonderful support to our daughter over the past school year. She has helped her organize her thoughts and better express herself through her writing. She offered extra help via email when deadlines were tight and an in person meeting wasn't possible. We look forward to continuing working with Lisa next year.Jun 30, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do not have a standard pricing system. Pricing depends a great deal on the specific needs of my students. Am I creating curriculum or using established curriculum? What is the distance we need to travel? How difficult is scheduling? How many sessions does a client want? Rates can vary from $55 to $125 an hour. We always seek to be fair while maintaining the integrity of our company.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always begin with a phone call to get to know the basic needs of my clients. Then I encourage an initial meeting to make sure we have the right fit. Then I ask parents to commit to at least 6 sessions to build trust and see progress.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have 10 years as an English teacher prior to becoming a tutor. I have been tutoring writing, reading and test prep for the last 15 years.
