About Lindsay

A distinct profile of my successful student emerges from my years of experience with WyzAnt. In order to concentrate on them I must limit myself to the mature and sophisticated international actresses, executives, models, professionals, and graduate students whom I would lightly refer to as: women of the woods; Hollywood, Westwood, Brentwood (and adjacent West L.A. districts). Some of them continue to call me for help, over several years, throughout the remainder of their college careers, and into their professional.

As an actor myself I understand their needs for improvement in cultural fluency, economic understanding, scientific knowledge, pronunciation, vocabulary, and writing ability. Also, directors looking for smart reality-show talent contact me, as the local public relations officer of Mensa: "The High-IQ society".

Beyond my UCLA degree in Economics, I am an autodidact with a breadth of knowledge that astounds even the most learned; and with special expertise on the social challenges of the gifted.

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.

American History

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.

Economics

"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.

English

Focusing on techniques, format, and idiomatic prose style used in academic and professional life; on development of a topic, thesis, choice of appropriate vocabulary, grammar, and sentence structure to achieve purpose.

Emphasis on writing required in fields such as economics, political science and engineering.

Formulating, organizing, and presenting ideas clearly in writing. Reviewing basic principles of rhetoric.

Methods designed to accommodate those whose first language is not English.

My goal is to develop effective speaking and writing skills for academic and professional contexts.

ESL/ESOL

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.

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.

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.

GED

While I haven't taken the GED test, "General Education Development" is the pursuit which drives my life.

GMAT

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.

LSAT

While I haven't taken the LSAT, I am skilled at tests of this general type and I've accomplished more through legal work, including at the state appellate and federal levels, than most practicing attorneys ever do.

Reading

Learning to read is a complex process at the intersection of art and science.

SAT Reading

SAT skills are strengthened through coached exercise. Besides cultivating breadth of general knowledge, I can teach you some tricks, which I found helpful in consistently scoring in top percentiles on this and various other standardized tests.

SAT Writing

Selecting the answer based on first impression, I've found to be key. Drills with feedback from an experienced coach are the method for building confidence.

Spelling

I am highly attentive to spelling and I check myself periodically, looking up words upon my slightest sense of doubt that I might be misspelling it.

TOEFL

I have innate ability at the English language and patience with those who do not.

Vocabulary

I'm a lifelong, inveterate, sesquipedalian logophile. I collect seldom-used words for a vocabulary-enhancement reference app that I'm creating.

Writing

My regular occupation involves creative argument essay writing (creative writing & argument writing), in legal brief composition, at which I've had success in appellate and federal courts.
