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 become more confident in their abilities. I then started a homeschool cooperative which I headed for six years in Collingswood, NJ. It grew to over 70 families and 200 students.
Both of my boys started taking college classes during their junior year of high school as a part of the high school option at Rowan College. They each earned a full semester's worth of credits before enrolling full-time. Now I have time to help other students achieve academic success, and I look forward to working with you!
Algebra 1 lays the foundation for all higher math classes. This subject requires abstract thinking, which is why so many students struggle. It's not that they aren't ready to think in this new way - they just need lots of time, practice, and patient understanding. I'll be able to quickly diagnose where your student's trouble spots are and how he/she approaches the assignments. I will reinforce the concepts previously taught in class and drill the particular problem areas of your student. The most important part is that your student will gain self-confidence and be able to apply these problem-solving skills to other subjects, and every area of life, for that matter.
I tutored elementary math on a daily basis for eight years. I have experience with the following programs: Developmental Math, Miquon Math, and Teaching Textbooks.
I have experience with Harold Jacob's Geometry and Teaching Textbooks.
