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

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught K-8th at Kingfisher Academy for eight years. I also home-schooled my granddaughter through 3rd grade. I am proficient in phonics and whole reading as well as related elementary subjects.

English

I have taught Language Arts in kindergarten through college.

Grammar

I specialize in traditional grammar and mechanics.

Literature

I am proficient in all areas of literature--elementary, young adult, and college-level.

Phonics

I was responsible for administering and teaching the reading program at Kingfisher Academy in Atlanta, Georgia.

Reading

I teach phonics and "whole" (classical) reading.

SAT Math

The new SAT math section covers arithmetic, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and miscellaneous subjects, such as probability, data, and graph analysis. I have a minor in mathematics as well as a life-long love of math. I have prepared students for all areas of the SAT, including math.

SAT Reading

I have taught both classes and individual students in preparing for the SAT. The best approach is a combination of coaching on the specific skills required by the SAT and coaching on "how" to take the test.

SAT Writing

I have taught both classes and individual students in preparing for the Writing and Reading sections of the SAT. The ideal preparation includes a review of subject material relevant to the particular area of the SAT and "how" to take the test in a better, smarter, and faster way.

SSAT

I have successfully prepared students for the SSAT. My latest student scored in the 90 percentile in every category.

Vocabulary

My lessons are based on Latin and Greek prefixes, suffixes, and roots.

Writing

I am an experienced teacher in all genres--composition, creative writing, and business.

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.
