About Lindsey


Bio

My name is Lindsey. I received my credential in single subject mathematics from Cal State University San Marcos in June of 2014. I have been teaching 6th and 8th grade math at Black Mountain Middle School in Poway for the past 5 years. I have taught over 700 students and I have great experience working with students that have learning disabilities such as autism, ADD, ADHD, etc. I primarily help my students with math.

My name is Lindsey. I received my credential in single subject mathematics from Cal State University San Marcos in June of 2014. I have been teaching 6th and 8th grade math at Black Mountain Middle School in Poway for the past 5 years. I have taught over 700 students and I have great experience working with students that have learning disabilities such as autism, ADD, ADHD, etc. I primarily help my students with math. The subjects that I have taught my students are algebra, pre-algebra, geometry, integrated 1, integrated 2, and middle-school level math. I also have taught ELL Math for English Language Learners. I know what it is like to struggle in math and finally get to that moment where everything “clicks”. I chose to become a math teacher because I failed math most of my elementary and middle school career and I was able to develop strategies to turn everything around in high school. This is what I want to help other students accomplish.

I believe that in order to tutor in a subject you must be passionate about it... and indeed I am! I love teaching each and every day, and I am sure I would love to tutor you as well!

Elementary Math

In order to be good at math, you need a good foundation! This is what elementary mathematics provides for all students. Once you get a good head start, you will most likely have a great outcome in higher level mathematics! I understand this and will work hard to ensure that you will have a good head start!

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I highly believe that Algebra 1 is the fundamental math class that you just can't miss. Algebra 1 covers many different topics that are just built upon in Geometry, Algebra 1, pre-calculus, and beyond. Once you gain an understanding in Algebra 1, your math success will skyrocket! I have been tutoring Algebra 1 to high school and middle school students at a probation school for the past two and a half years as a Teaching Assistant. Most of my students transition to alternative schools or just try to get their GED because they are so credit deficient. My students have been able to pass their CAHSEE and GED tests with a thorough Algebra understanding. When you are able to conquer Algebra, you can conquer the world!
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 can't be properly understood without a thorough understanding of Algebra 1. It makes sense, but in actuality the concepts and functions of Algebra 2 are built upon Algebra 1. I understand the need for a strong foundation in Algebra 1 and can provide that for a great outcome in Algebra 2!
Geometry,

Geometry

In transitioning from Algebra 1 to Geometry, many students can get lost because Geometry is a completely different method of thinking. Algebra is all about critical/abstract thinking while Geometry introduces visual thinking. I understand this and will make sure you are a visual thinker that is succeeding!
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

In order to succeed in Algebra, you need a strong foundation in Pre-Algebra. After all, it is titled "Pre-Algebra" for a reason. I have great experience in this subject and I am able to prepare you to not only succeed in this subject but Algebra as well!

Special Needs

ADHD

ADHD

I have just received my teaching credential this year from Cal State San Marcos. I spent one semester of student teaching a 6th grade inclusion class in which I worked with students who have Autism, ADD , ADHD, and other disabilities. This took place at a public charter school built on the inclusion model and project based learning. I have also been tutoring several students since 2012 with ADD/ ADHD. I spent my Fall semester of 2013 student teaching in a Geometry class at a Continuation school, which is a school that was created to help students get back on track and graduate high school. This class was composed of mainly juniors and seniors and several students in this class had ADD/ADHD. I have had many experiences that have allowed me to work with students of multiple disabilities, especially ADD/ADHD.

Test Preparation

ASVAB,

ASVAB

I have tutored two brothers in preparing for their ASVAB and after being tutored both brothers were significantly able to raise their score and qualify for the careers that they wanted all along. In order to beat the ASVAB you need a strong foundation in percentages and algebra, which can also be used in the real world!

Great progress

Nathan is doing so much better in math. His test scores have gone up and so has his confidence. We are so thankful to see this much progress in such a short time. Thank you, Lindsey!

Barbara, 12 lessons with Lindsey

Pleasant to work with!

Lindsey asked the right questions to see what would benefit my daughter the most so that we would get the most out of the session. She was very thorough and patiently reviewed each question. She made sure my daughter understood before moving on. We look forward to the next lesson!

Great teacher! Very helpful!

Lindsey was very patient and helpful in teaching me geometry. She made sure I understood what I was doing and patient when I was wrong. Definitely 10/10 lesson!

Hailey, 2 lessons with Lindsey

Great first session

Lindsey is patient and understands limits with attention span. She knew when my daughter was at her limit and took a break. She found a way to engage her in conversation to divert her attention while getting to know her at the same time.

Gretchen, 9 lessons with Lindsey

Outstanding Tutor

Lindsey starting tutoring my son who is taking 10th grade Geometry shortly after the School year started. My son has always had problems with Math and was on the verge of not passing his class. Since the tutoring has started his grades has improved tremendously. Lindsey was able to identify why he was struggling. I am now glad to say he has maintained an A average and is very confident. Thank you, Lindsey!
