All of Linda’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Linda’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Business

In 1986 I completed a BS in Business Administration/Management at Arizona State University. In addition I recently tutored a graduate student in completing an on-line MA in Hospital Administration including writing the necessary business and academic documents to receive a gpa of 4.0 in the program. For over 20 years I worked in the Insurance industry starting as a Customer Service Representative, then an Underwriter and finally an Associate Vice President.

Elementary (K-6th)

Currently hold an Arizona K-8 teaching certificate including an ESL (English as a Second Language) endorsement and a Middle School Language Arts Endorsement. My course work also includes methods classes for all K-8 subject areas in addition to course work in creative activities and Children's Literature. While my most recent teaching experience (6 years) has been at the middle school level, for two years I taught 4th and 5th grade all subjects.

ESL/ESOL

Currently I hold an Arizona Teaching Certificate with an ESL endorsement. For the last eight years I have taught in schools where the population was more than 40% students for whom English is a second language. Due to the make-up of the population, all my lessons were adapted to effectively meet the needs of these students.

Study Skills

As a certified K-8 teacher with a K-12 ESL endorsement I have a great deal of experience is helping students learn how to learn using study support including graphic organizers, flash cards, outlines, reading strategies such as survey, question, clarify, predict, confirm, reflect. Since a great deal of academic learning is based on retaining information that is either read or heard using reading strategies as well as graphic organizers can substantially improve a students level of success.

Writing

Writing at all levels including writing process, drafting, revising and editing. Focus is on Ideas, organization, clarity,voice, word choice, sentence fluency and mechanics. Research papers focus on all of the above plus style (APA or MLA). Writing is an important form for communicating ideas and all writing ultimately focuses on clarity of communication.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
