    Lisa was friendly and patient in working with my child.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I would first ask the child’s parent(s) what they are hoping to gain for their child with the turoring. Then I would talk to the child to get to know them and see where they feel they can improve.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BS in Elementary Education from the University of Illinois and a Master’s Degree in Human Development and Learning from DePaul.
