Hi, I'm Linda, and I love to learn! I also love teaching students of all ages. I have been tutoring students from elementary age to adult on a daily basis for more than 15 years. Individualized support for a student is the most effective and efficient way to gain confidence and mastery in any subject. I can help you with that! I have experience with all levels of math and standardized tests, including the SAT, ACT, GED, Praxis, and ASVAB. I am available days, evenings, and Saturdays.
Let me tell you a little more about myself. In 1985, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature within 3.5 years. I then completed a certification course to become a paralegal. I worked with the same employer in Cherry Hill, NJ for 11 years. My duties included legal work, office management, and tutoring. My favorite part was teaching professionals in various law offices to install and use a time-keeping software program.
I began homeschooling my two boys right from the start. My boys have always been like most boys - constantly on the move with little inclination to sit down and learn something they have no immediate interest in. I completely understand frustrated students (and parents)! It was never easy, but it was such a thrill to help them learn and grow. I then started a homeschool cooperative which I headed for six years in Collingswood, NJ. It grew to over 70 families and 200 students.
My oldest starting taking college classes during his senior year of high school as a part of the high school option at Gloucester County College. He earned a full semester's worth of credits and is now full-time in GCC's dual enrollment with Rowan University. My youngest is a high school junior and is also taking classes at GCC. Both have become increasingly independent with their studies - which allows me the time to help other students. I look forward to working with you!
