About Linda

I specialize in working with very young children and early grade school children. This is my third year working full-time as an independent academic tutor. I find that many students feel stressed by the pace of their curriculum or the volume of homework that is expected. Even kindergarteners! I try to promote a growth mindset and shift anxiety to confidence by offering achievable challenges and monitoring the student's self-assessment as a learner. I try to promote a love of reading and writing.

In the past, I worked as a clinical licensed social worker at various Boston hospitals. After ten years in this field, I shifted my goal to become an Early Childhood Educator. I taught preschool and also worked as a Preschool Assistant Director.
Through this work, I learned that the building blocks for learning begin in the earliest years, including how self-directed learning is fostered.

If your child is struggling in reading or math or needs a chance to get ready for kindergarten, please call me or e-mail and request a time to meet and talk about your child's strengths and needs.
