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.
Very responsive to needs. Very professional. Easy to work with. Flexible. Great at proofreading and APA formatting. Did quick turn around and delivered as promised.Carol, 3 lessons with LindaTutor responded:
Thanks, Carol, for your kind remarks. I really enjoyed working with you.
Linda obviously enjoys teaching. Her joy is evident as she encourages and challenges in balance. My 13-year-old was anxious to end the lesson and get to editing and creating! Reminds you the value of ‘your favorite’ teacher we all had.Amy, 4 lessons with LindaTutor responded:
Thanks for the nice comments. I thoroughly enjoyed our session also.
Very knowledgeable and encouraging!
Linda has been responsive and accommodating from our first interaction. We emailed her some sample work and she incorporated in the session. My son felt like he learned today! He is eager to work with her tomorrow. We are very happy that she is working on exactly what he needs to cover for school.Erika, 4 lessons with LindaTutor responded:
Thanks so much for the kind feed-back. I enjoyed working with your son and think we will make rapid progress.
Knowledgeable and Excellent Tutor!
Linda has been helping my son with his college essays. We are repeat customers. She is extremely knowledgeable and efficient. She is patient, has great insight and her English skills are amazing. She’s very understanding and considerate in the way she explains and give feedback. She conferenced with him to help him discover what he really wanted to write about, then they discussed structure. Linda really helped my son find focus on his essay to narrow all of his wandering thoughts. We will definitely set up more sessions to complete this assignment as well as future writing support. As a college basketball coach, I am a great evaluator of talent. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND LINDA!Denise, 3 lessons with Linda
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 LindaTutor responded:
Thanks so much for the kind words. I'm very glad you're pleased.
Linda exudes passion in her craft. She’s understanding and is working with my daughter all the way through her AP Lit this year. Highly recommend her to help you or your student.Marc, 15 lessons with LindaTutor responded:
Thanks, Marc. I thoroughly enjoy working with Sophie. Let me know if you ever have concerns or requests.
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, 7 lessons with LindaTutor 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.John, 131 lessons with LindaTutor responded:
Thanks for the kind words. Your son is a joy to work with and we make quick progress.
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!Esther, 5 lessons with LindaTutor 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.
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!Carly, 1 lesson with LindaTutor responded:
