About Lindi

As an immigrant, I worked hard to achieve the highest level of education in my field. My life's passion is to bridge the gap between student performance and academic expectations for students having academic difficulty. In addition to leading one-on-one tutoring in Anthropology and Sociology, which are subjects I have taught in college for over 10 years, I specialize in ESL and have the pleasure of helping students achieve their goal scores in the TOEFL through exam preparation.

In all subject areas, I assist in developing study skills essential for success in school. I provide support and individualized approaches to learning, give homework assignments, and keep a record of progress. ESL and TOEFL are most effective with collaborative learning. For these subjects, I provide group weekly tutoring sessions at public library locations throughout West and South Sacramento, but am also happy to travel for individual student convenience.

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.

Anthropology

I have the following degrees:
PhD Socio-Cultural Anthropology
Master's in Cultural Anthropology from Yale University
Bachelor's in Anthropology (Four-Field)
I have taught undergraduate Anthropology courses in the 100-300 level, including Anthropological Theory and Research Methods. My teaching experience is in community colleges, 4-year colleges and in the Cultural Competency and Diversity and Inclusion subject areas of Continuing Education.

Career Development

I have professional experience as Academic Advisor & Substitute Instructor, Education & Training Department of the Sacramento Job Corps Center (5/2015-11/2016). I implemented academic tutoring and career tech training during Phase III: College and Career Development. I provided individualized and group academic tutoring, DMV and TABE testing prep. I assisted with Resume development, mock interviews, tuition information (FAFSA, Pell Grants) for college-bound students; work Based Learning matches for internships and externships; collaborated with other functional units to achieve learning outcomes as per Individualized Student Learning Plan; English Language Arts / Math Tutor (SES/No Child Left Behind).

Social Studies

I tutored History/Social Studies 7 and 8 at local charter school covering citizenship, history (U.S. and world history, civilizations) and government from 2015-2016.

Sociology

I have taught undergraduate sociology for 4 years as Assistant Professor in the New York City/New Jersey community college systems, and in a private, Catholic/Lasalle 4-year college in Manhattan, New York. Specific courses I taught have included Sociology 101, 200, 203 levels, with the titles: Principles of Sociology; Introduction to Sociology; Racism and Sexism in the US; Changing Women's Roles; Race and Ethnicity: Comparative Global Perspectives.

My experience includes course design, classroom instruction, student evaluations, one-on-one counseling and referrals, and supervising student research. I have also utilized online tools of teaching and learning including Moodle, Blackboard and Courseworks.

Study Skills

I have tutored grades 6-12 afterschool programs in subjects including Microsoft Word and Study Skills. My study skills framework emphasizes strategies that are time-efficient and effective and that students can apply across all content areas. In tutoring in this area, my goal is not to overwhelm the learner with elaborate graphic organizers, charts and models. My method incorporates student participation in initiating on their own and with my guidance, strategies that will simplify the process and accomplish study skills they will know how and when to use.

Learning how to be strategic with learning and embracing this concept at a young age gives students a head start that prepares them for high school and for increasing complexity in college. I empower students with student-friendly learning strategies they can master on their own.
