Hi my name is Lisa Schertler. I currently Coach swimming. I have worked 20 years in elementary education. I have taught grades K-2: largely focusing on struggling readers and writers. Although I have also taught High Learners, working with those students needing more support has always been more enjoyable. I have also spent time teaching Language Learners (grades 3-5) as I transitioned into my coaching profession.
My greatest enjoyment is watching my students grow academically and as individuals. I enjoy watching students gain confidence as they learn new skills.
Tutor is kind, positive, flexible and knowledgeable.
I work with parents and try to really get to know the student. I am always interested building a strong connection with the swimmers and students I work with. I work hard to understand the students emotional and academic needs. I devise a strategy to help remediate the student's needs.
I have a Physical Education degree and a Multiple Subject teaching Credential. I have worked in elementary education for 20 years and currently work as a swim coach with the local team: SUNN Swimming.
Compensation depends on students needs, travel, time and frequency of sessions.
I began informally teaching swim skills as a teen. Later I earned my teaching credential in Physical Education and taught K-8 P.E. After 3 years I transitioned into the classroom as a K/1 teacher. Now, I have made a full circle back to coaching swimming. I'd like to tutor because I know distance learning is challenging for many families
Working with struggling students in the First Grade means that about 25% of the students I have worked with tend to have undiagnosed learning and behavioral concerns. I have had language learners, heave worked with students on the autism spectrum, and with students with behavioral disorders.
I enjoy walking my dogs in the park, hiking, swimming and coaching swimming. My most recent kid-centered event was in February where I was lead coach for our zone's 7/8 year old boys team. I was in charge of 8 boys during ice breakers, dinner, and the big championship Zones meet. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed volunteering for this position and meeting swimmers from the many teams in our zone.
I advise anyone looking for a tutor for their child to take the time to meet the tutor to be sure it is a good fit.
When looking to hire a tutor, parents need to know ahead of time areas their students need support with. Parents should ask what type of learning environment they should expect from the tutor (online, at their residence, a specific room or learning area). Parents should also know the plan their tutor has to meet the student's needs and what materials the tutor will need or use to meet learning objectives.
