Lisa has been great for my kiddos! She?s patient, asks and follows up. My 8 and 10 year old daughters are huge fans! Thank you!

Lisa started teaching both of my children beginner German. She kept both of my kids engaged (which isn't always easy!) and they both truly enjoyed their lesson. They came out of their session speaking some of the words they learned and continue to practice daily. Lisa was patient and very well organized. She was great with follow up documents and checking in as well. We look forward to continuing to work with Lisa!

Lisa has been teaching my daughter German for over months. My daughter did not know anything about German when she started with Lisa, we are very happy to see Lisa was able to engage with her with very well designed lessons and games. Lisa also gave a little homework to her for practice and more for triggering her interest to self-study and explore this beautiful language. German may be the only homework my daughter is happy to work on without parents forcing her. I can always hear my daughter laughing during the class and see smiles on her face after. Highly recommend!!

You will not be disappointed in hiring Lisa. We hired her to work with a 9 year old girl. She is engaging and fun. What I loved most about Lisa is how communicative she is. We've never had an issue and every lesson is tailored to you.

Lisa was wonderful in helping me build a resume. She went over my old resumes and mentioned things I could do to improve them. My resume looks sharp now. She also assisted in writing and proof-reading cover letters for different positions I am applying for. I feel much more confident in my job search.

Lisa worked with my elementary german student to help him develop some study strategies, clarified some misunderstandings and most importantly gave him the confidence he needed to head into his first college exam! He was very pleased we found Lisa and we will definitely meet with her again as he progresses to the next levels.

she taught English 102 . she a very good teacher tutor. she is the best you can get. she would patiently help you figure out what you have to do and also help you outline your homework so you can follow it. she would literally help u out but not do it in the sense of cheating but more like help you get your thoughts out

Lisa has been tutoring our daughter in German for a couple months now. She's been so great and patient with us. As you can imagine, we have had quite a few hiccups with balancing distance learning and extracurricular activities. Lisa has been wonderful through it all though. Our daughter grasps more and more of the language each week with just 1 hour sessions. She has also learned better study habits and organizational skills. We would definitely recommend her!
- Katelynn T. from Everett, WA
Lisa was an engaging and very patient, and she is an experienced teacher. The lesson passed by so quickly! She also came well prepred for the lesson and was very good at making a meaningful personal connections, besides the teaching itself. I highly recommend Lisa!
