About Linda


Bio

I moved to Longmont approximately three (3) years ago and have been tutoring middle school, high school, and college students face to face and online for Wyzant ever since. Before the move, I taught high school English for 25 years with the last 10 years teaching English to all International Baccalaureate seniors. During the 25 years I taught regular, honors, college-prep, advanced placement, and International Baccalaureate students. Since retiring I have had private tutoring students and...

I moved to Longmont approximately three (3) years ago and have been tutoring middle school, high school, and college students face to face and online for Wyzant ever since. Before the move, I taught high school English for 25 years with the last 10 years teaching English to all International Baccalaureate seniors. During the 25 years I taught regular, honors, college-prep, advanced placement, and International Baccalaureate students. Since retiring I have had private tutoring students and also was the English tutor for the Wichita State University athletes.

I especially try to simplify the teaching of grammar, punctuation, and writing to make the concepts as easy as possible to understand. I can help with writing introductions with clear thesis statements, well-organized and developed paragraphs with textual support, effective conclusions, in-text MLA citations and works cited pages; research including use of scholarly, peer-reviewed research sources; and proofreading. I can offer assistance with English papers including narrative, persuasive/argumentative, definition, cause/effect, comparison/contrast, research, analysis, argumentative, and literature analysis. I can also work with students to prepare them for taking the ACT, SAT, PSAT, or TOEFL exams.

I am happy to offer help with particular assignments or papers or to plan an on-going approach to working on areas such as grammar, punctuation, writing, etc. I am open to single appointments or long-term tutoring.

Grammar

Grammar

I love teaching grammar and have been successful in teaching students everything from the basic parts of speech to the more sophisticated parts of the sentence, usage issues, punctuation, etc. I pride myself in working successfully with students who have been confused by earlier explanations of grammar. I can also focus on a specific mechanics area such as comma or semicolon usage.

Amazing

Linda is awesome and provides a lot of great tips for the ACT test. My daughter got a lot of tips just meeting wit her on the first time. We will recommend Linda to our friends.

Ana Lisa, 3 lessons with Linda
Tutor responded:

Thanks so much for the kind words. I'm very glad you're pleased.

Experienced and Easy To Work With

Linda helped me think through and outline two college application essays and sent me home with resources to learn from. I knew from reading her bio that she was more than qualified to help me with college essays which made working with her approachable, professional, enthusiastic, and kind personality a plus! Great experience!

Jessica, 6 lessons with Linda
Tutor responded:

thanks, Jessica. I really enjoyed working with you and feel good about the progress we made in a short time.

Excellent help for pre IB

Linda has been very helpful for our son. She explains ideas in a way he understands and helps him get in touch with his voice. We had one lesson to see how things went and immediately decided to do ongoing lessons. I think Linda will make a huge impact on his English skills.

Linda is great! Well organized and professional tutor

We moved out of state but before we moved my high schooler had English tutoring sessions with Linda and they were very helpful. Thanks, Linda!

Tutor responded:

Thanks for the comment. I'm sorry you moved out of state, but I hope all goes well for you in your new location.

Very helpful!

Linda was very helpful and easy to contact. I sent her a rough draft of my paper and she made many helpful revisions. She got my paper back to me very quickly! I would definitely use her help and advice again!
