About Lindee

Hi students and parents of students,

My services combine my master's degree in curriculum, eleven years in public education, and 2 years experience teaching in a private school. My adult ESL students often request help with their English and/or writing. I help K-6 students take apart math word problems to "see" what is the real question. I read and write with all ages, helping with fluency and being on hand to help each student understand what they're reading and how to read for information.

The Common Core requires attention to detail and the ability to convert knowledge to communication via technology. I address parent and teacher concerns and design a curriculum to meet student needs. I then adjust the strategies to meet the student's personality (strengths and weaknesses). I help students explain their thinking, how they arrived at a correct answer, and what steps were taken. Learning to support one's thinking and arguments will prepare students for university life and the workplace.

I enjoy helping with homework and projects, then expanding and anticipating next steps in class for success and the competitive edge at school or work.

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.

Common Core

Common core subject matter has changed standard subjects in a way that may seem foreign to parents and teachers. However, the subjects just go deeper, present more learning opportunities, and incorporate the best of technology (as available). I taught common core curriculum as an elementary teacher and my master's degree was completed recently, just as common core was getting started in California schools. Last year I tutored exclusively and found much of the math that challenged my students required a common core approach and new skills. I'm here to help your child dig in and become a Common Core Kid. Soon (s)he won't know any other method. It will be second nature.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a teacher and master teacher (mentoring new or prospective teachers) helping kindergarten through sixth grade students. Different ages have brought different academic challenges for me to provide lessons and strategies for students to meet the standards for their grade level. Tutoring allows us to take them beyond the requirements when they're ready.

Elementary Math

I've tutored third, fourth and fifth graders in common core math for the past two years. I taught elementary school for eleven years before tutoring, and have a master's degree in curriculum. Word problems and explaining in words and on computer how to solve problems is important in today's math expectations. I am looking to help students love this challenging subject.

English

I've exceeded the WyzAnt qualifications and testing in the areas of English and Language Arts instruction. I've tutored adults and children in English, and taught ELD in the public school system for 11 years. Language Arts is my favorite subject personally and my master's thesis involved increasing elementary students' reading fluency.

ESL/ESOL

I've tutored business English and English grammar and conversation for two years. I taught ESL class in a public education setting for 7 years. I find that English learners wish to have an intelligent, respectful teacher as they seek to improve their English to better their life choices and meet their language goals.

General Music

I have a single subject credential in music. I majored in music 2 years. Requirements met were ear training, music theory, music history, keyboard, pedagogy and various voice lesson and choral training.

Handwriting

My teaching experience includes third grade classes for three years. In addition to keyboarding for technology, I've always started a systematic cursive daily practice. I've had several students say their favorite subject was handwriting. It can be academic and "arty" and fun.

Proofreading

I proofread for the Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) and other space tech companies in the eighties, more recently completed my thesis for a masters degree in curriculum planning and helped my classmates edit their theses.

Reading

I have a Master's Degree in curriculum, and have taught elementary school for eleven years. I specialize in helping students read more fluently (smoothly), and how to successfully read for information. I want to teach individual learners using my experience and appreciation for each child's individual learning styles, without distractions of the classroom setting.

Writing

Master's Degree in Curriculum. Taught writers' workshops in elementary school settings. Common core requires more writing in testing formats, and writing how we think and how we reach solutions is expected in common core math. Writing is more important to the 21st Century Student as it communicates and reaches into all areas of education.

Amazing tutor! — Lindee has amazing patience and can really hone in on the issues my son needs help with. He was so far behind in writing and spelling when Lindee began with our son a year ago.
