About Linda

I enjoy working one-on-one with students who really want to improve their language skills. I have been a teacher for 25 years, in various positions. Right now, I am a Teacher-Librarian, but I still spend a lot of time helping students with their writing and research skills. Although I am retiring from my current position soon, I am interested in teaching part time. I love the contact I have had with individual students, and I love it when each one succeeds. With the current educational climate, sometimes it is hard for students who feel they are playing "hurry up/catch up," but I am sure I can help ease the transition by providing quality, prescriptive instruction and feedback to each of my students.

I am an excellent reader, speller, and proofreader. I also write for myself and have published in academic journals. My specialties are: helping students to use their strengths, to reduce or compensate for their weaknesses, and to focus on improving one skill at a time. Students who are willing to start school writing projects early benefit the most from my kind of instruction. They often learn techniques that can carry them all the way from middle school through college.

If you are ready to become a fluent writer, and if you're ready to reach the point where writing no longer scares you, give me a call. I can get you there!
