  • Lisa Milner, Tutor

    Lisa Milner


    Hi! I am Ms. Lisa. I have a degree in Mathematics. I taught Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Statistics, and basic math in public schools for 10 years. I now work full time at the number one airline for the U.S. I just could not stay away from teaching! I missed it. Sylvan was exactly what I was looking for to still be able to teach and, more importantly, help students become confident and successful! I look forward to my weekends because that is when I get to work at Sylvan. When I’m not working I spend time with my 2 dogs, Blue and Henry. I also love to read , work all kinds of puzzles, and I have recently taken up water color painting.
