About Lindsay

With 8 years' elementary classroom teaching experience, a Master's Degree as a Reading Specialist and years of after school tutoring, I am well-versed in "the extra push" to keep on track. Individual subjects can be a challenge for some learners and my goal is to make learning concepts FUN for students. Using differentiated activities such as games or real-life written or verbal responses helps solidify information so it makes sense to learners. I'd love the opportunity to help your child feel more confident in the classroom!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a California Multiple Subject credential, a Master's Degree as a Reading Specialist and have 7 years teaching experience in grades k-1. I have tutored kids from k-4 over my last 5 years teaching in language arts and math.

Handwriting

Throughout my career, I've implemented Handwriting Without Tears, sky writing, print and cursive. Lined paper fit for the students skill level and age, help improve overall handwriting by providing guidelines for printing.

Phonics

Phonics is the foundation for most lessons in early elementary grades. I have used Words Their Way, Alphafriends, Reading and Writing Workshop and basal reading series to teach phonics to kids. Letter identification coupled with sounds helps kids begin to blend sounds to make words and then read words. Including sight words paints a full picture for early phonics success.
