Approved subjects are in bold.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 concepts are basic to higher math. You need the skills for Algebra 2, Geometry, and all other advanced math topics. The more a student understands Algebra 1, the more likely he/she will succeed in other math courses. Pennsylvania requires Algebra 1 mastery for graduating. They are currently giving the Keystone test in Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

I have taught over 20 years. Tutoring Algebra and helping students in their Math is something I do every day and enjoy it very much.

ASVAB

Working with young adults preparing for the ASVAB, SAT, and other assessment tests are part of my experiences during the last 15 years. Test taking strategies, review of theory, and practice are some the ways to improve results on these tests.

Elementary Math

I have taught math to as early as first grade. I have 24 years experience teaching math. Using manipulatives, practice, differentiated instruction, and diagnostics tests, can help improve mathematics understanding.

Geometry

Geometry incorporates Algebra into the realm of new applications of math. Working with graphing and shapes is sometimes easier for students. Vocabulary and formulas are a must to know and use.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra precludes Algebra, by introducing the concepts needed to succeed in higher math. Readiness to take an Algebra 1 class and succeeding in Prealgebra is a very important step.

QuickBooks

I have used QuickBooks Professional Software for many years. I currently do accounting and payroll using the software. Also, I have gone into small business and trained employees on different facets of QuickBooks. Bank reconciliations, inventory, item lists, and payroll are some of the topics covered.

SAT Math

SAT math includes math topics that students need to know to score higher on the SAT. Bringing together all previous math subjects on a test can be overwhelming. Reviewing how to do problems and what the questions are really asking helps to score higher.

Special Needs

I am certified in special education in Pennsylvania. I am currently and Special Education teacher at a local high school. I have a case load of 15 to 25 students a year. I am responsible for writing IEP's, developing transition plans, behavior plans, and other responsibilities. I also have a MED in High School Mathematics.

Tax Preparation

I have been doing tax preparation for over 30 years. I am currently in the process of completing all requirements for certification.

Would highly recommend — Lynda was terrific with my son. She didn't waste time going over what he already understood but quickly identified what concepts he needed to focus on. Lynda provided helpful materials and her explanations were clear and concise. We will definitely use her again if he needs additional help. ...
