I believe students should always have fun while learning to write, or in learning any new skill. Entertained students will better enjoy and remember what they learn, and be more willing to continue practicing new skills in the future.
Fell in love with words and images as a child at a very young age, and can help you. Students have reported improved grades after having assistance from me in thinking of new ideas, organizing their writing, proofreading their work.

I highly recommend Lisa. I have known Lisa for over 30 years and she is a wonderful person. Her experience is vast. She is dedicated and gives more than 100%. She is very passionate about what she does.
I have known Lisa for most of her life, she grew up in our community and church. I have always thought Lisa to be highly intelligent, kind and thoughtful person. Lisa has raised her own children with these same values.
I have known Lisa for many years and in that time she has worked continuously to improve her own education and to experience learning. She's committed to higher learning and empowerment through knowledge. Her dedication to furthering education makes her an excellent instructor.
