About Linda

I have been a tutor and a teacher of English, reading, language arts, math, spelling, speed reading, and grammar for 35 years. I hold a bachelor's in English and a Master's in Education with endorsements in reading and special education. I had a tutoring business in Fort Collins for nine years and now tutor in Loveland, CO. I also taught English, reading and special education in the public schools, and speed reading and study skills at the college level. Additionally, for thirteen years, I was the Academic and Special Education Coordinator for a top-rated charter school in Ft. Collins, Liberty Common Charter School. I love tutoring! I have great rapport with my clients. Students often come up a grade level or more under my tutelage. I am especially versed in learning disabilities, ADHD, and dyslexia and use specialized techniques for such. Also I have designed my own teaching products and games that I use with great success!

I have a degree in English and have tutored in English since 1976. I understand grammar and writing skills like nobody's business. I am patient and am able to use color-coding and certain techniques to help students understand the underpinnings of writing, grammar, and usage.

I am trained in Lindamood-Bell phonics and understand phonetic awareness and phonics at a deep level. My teaching techniques help even the hardest learner succeed.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have a degree in English Education and have taught junior high English in the past. I have a Master's Degree in Education and have been a rofessional tutor for 30 years.

Phonics

I have a Master's in Education with endorsements in reading and special education. I am certified as a reading specialist and have studied phonics, phonetics, and phonemic awareness through several avenues including the Lindamood-Bell system. I am well-versed in dyslexia, and remediating with phonics is a tried and true method to treat this and other reading disorders and spelling difficulties. I also grew up learning phonics and was a reader by the time I entered school - winning several book awards for my ability to apply phonics to decoding new words and mastering books above my grade level.

Proofreading

I am a professional English educator and was a professional proofreader at one time for Poudre High School. I have taught at the college level and have a English Education degree as well as a Master's in Education. I am an excellent writer.

Amazing tutor! — Linda was able to really help me with what I needed to get done to complete my project successfully. I was not able to get the help I needed from who was supposed to help me.
