About Linda

I am a K-6 California Credentialed Teacher, with a Master's Degree in Education. I have experience in all grades and I am comfortable tutoring all elementary school subjects. I have extensive one on one tutoring experience helping students improve their reading skills. One of the most rewarding parts of being a teacher is helping students learn to read.

Ever since I began working as a Teacher's Assistant years ago, I have been passionate about helping children in their academic growth and personal development. I have over 10 years experience working as a teacher and private tutor. I also have 5 years experience working as a child counselor at Mesa Vista Hospital. I have exceptional patience and many years experience working with students with special needs. I am well organized and take pride in always being prepared. One of my favorite parts about tutoring is that every child is different. I customize every lesson based on the student's needs, goals, and learning style.

I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, but I offer make up sessions. Depending on your child's needs, I usually see students twice a week for an hour and a half. I've seen that it is difficult to see progress with less than that. I offer a free consultation to meet face to face and make sure that we are a good fit.

I have my California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, Master's Degree in Education, and I am knowledgeable of California's Common Core Standards. I am creative and patient with young students. I have several years experience teaching Kindergarten, and many materials to assist in teaching phonics.

I hope to work with you soon and help your child reach their potential. I look forward to hearing from you to answer any questions and schedule your free consultation.

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.
