About Lindsay


Bio

In vocabulary and idioms, I bow to no one.
Most of my students are international professionals seeking improved fluency in English, to advance their careers. I show them that overcoming the habits of speech from their native language is strenuous and I drill them to produce American phonemes, as I know they are able.
My most satisfied students are those whom I've helped to revise the text of their professional communications, especially for job-seeking: résumés, reference letters, & etc. ...

In vocabulary and idioms, I bow to no one.
Most of my students are international professionals seeking improved fluency in English, to advance their careers. I show them that overcoming the habits of speech from their native language is strenuous and I drill them to produce American phonemes, as I know they are able.
My most satisfied students are those whom I've helped to revise the text of their professional communications, especially for job-seeking: résumés, reference letters, & etc. Gratifyingly, some of them have contacted me years after I'd last heard from them, when they have an important letter that they want to be sure to word just right.
Beyond my UCLA BA degree in Economics, I'm an autodidact with a wide breadth of knowledge. I'm a Hollywood SAG-AFTRA actor, specializing in playing cowboy characters. I'm active in Mensa, "The High-IQ society", in which I coordinate our LA Open Forum, where we listen to talks by authorities in various intellectual fields.
I don't have any special capability or materials for teaching to the graduate school admission tests such as GMAT, LSAT, or MCAT. All I can advise test-takers to do is to read each of the answer choices before reading a given question, and to not get bogged down where they don't subconsciously sense the correct answer; move on and come back.

Film

At UCLA I took a number of courses in film history. I still frequently attend screenings there of old, seldom-seen, classics. I know, from reading at the Motion Picture Academy Library, about many films that I haven't even seen.

Business

Finance,

Finance

Theory of Finance was the key class, in that field, at the UCLA Graduate School of Management. While I was still an undergraduate there I passed this challenging course, as well as courses in financial math and applications. I can help you to acquire these skills, by which I've earned an independent living.

Disciplined discernment of one's impressions of the available answers, along with review of the relevant math, are the skills that I emphasize. I consistently scored in the top tenth on various standardized tests.

"Economics is common sense gone hog wild," a professor of mine at UCLA told us. It's a language as well as a set of math applications. Fortunately, the math lends itself to graphical representation. Fortunately also, history and daily news are replete with examples to aid understanding of theory.

I was raised in the Midwest of the Northern Cities Dialect. Having also lived in regions of peculiar dialect, such as West Texas and Northern Michigan, I've learned to appreciate my lack of accent. Talk to to me if you seek to speak like an American. My SAT score on the verbal section was in the 96th percentile.

I emphasize the evolutionary nature of ideas expressed through human events and the significance of the individual in turning tides of popular thought. I also suggest where traditional assumptions remain in present-day politics, society, and culture. I'm particularly knowledgeable about the Cold War era.

He is very patient.

I have to take a test in order to get a job. After reviewing the sample test I became very nervous about failing. When I met with Lindsey he gave me some good tips for getting a better score on my test. I now feel more confident about passing this test.
