My name is Lisa Hamilton. I am a highly experienced teacher with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (K-8) and Special Education, Emotional Disabilities (K-12). I also have a Masters of Education in Secondary Education, Mathematics (7-12).
I have taught for 31 years, teaching 4th-12th grade, regular education and special education. The last 20 years, I have taught math, grades 7-12. I have taught all levels of math.
I have tutored privately for various families for the last 20 years, and I currently tutor middle and high school math students. I have also tutored a few students in college, Calculus I and Calculus II being the highest levels. I have tutored some in Science, History, and English. I have extensive experience with students who need motivational, organizational and/or time management help. I have also worked with students taking online classes who need these skills, as well as math assistance. I enjoy seeing students accomplish goals and concepts that they did not think possible. I enjoy seeing students enjoy learning and becoming empowered by what they can accomplish. I have frequently told my students that my job is to work myself out of a job; I want them to learn how to learn so they no longer need me! I have reached this point with many of my students, and it makes for a great ending.
I really enjoy a lot of "Nerdy" things; Star Wars and Harry Potter are two of my biggest "Fandoms"! I love games and puzzles and find math to be one of those. I have raised four amazing adults and love being a grandma! I love the outdoors, camping and hiking are my favorites. I love to cook and spend time with family and friends. I am also a football fan and love the Green bay Packers!
I look forward to the next great adventure!
