About Linda

I am retiring from the classroom after teaching mathematics for 20 years in public and private schools. I have taught all high school classes from algebra through AP Calculus AB. When I was in first grade, I started making up story lines for the math that I was learning, this helped me learn and remember new concepts at an above average rate. As a teacher and tutor I enjoy sharing this skill to help struggling students remember mathematical procedures. I also love to use manipulatives and technology to help students visualize and better connect to concepts.
In addition to teaching mathematics, I also coached Cross Country and Girls Long Distance Track.

I have been teaching math and tutoring students longer than my students have been alive! I also raised my own children and have experienced the process of guided a child from Pre-Kindergarten on ward through college. As a teacher, I spent countless hours after school and on weekends helping students to master their mathematics courses, and I loved it. Tutoring is the best part of teaching math.

If you are looking for a tutor that understands the challenges of being a student in a modern high school, contact me. I am familiar with the Exploration model used by local school districts and understand the struggles that students can have with that model. Don't give up, contact me and we can get you through this without the tears and frustration you may be having.

Great Time

Linda was great with our son for our first session. He was very reluctant to being tutored, but he found her to be very nice and helpful. She is really helping him understand fractions. Thanks Linda!
