About Linda

I am an experienced teacher certified in CT, NY, and WA in Art, Social Studies/History, and Elementary Education. I have a Master in Teaching degree from The Evergreen State College (WA) and and MA in Studio Art from NYU. I have taught at all levels from pre-school to community college, but the bulk of my career was spent teaching high school art. I have taught Art Studio, Drawing and Painting, Crafts, AP Studio, Printmaking, and Ceramics. I have also taught elementary general music primarily using the Orff method.

I have played violin since 4th grade and have always been involved in orchestras and other performing ensembles. In addition to performing with community symphony orchestras and chamber groups, I've played in pit orchestras for more school and community musical theater productions than I can count. I have also performed with Greek/Balkan folk groups. Along the way I picked up cello, mandolin, and octave mandolin.

If you are preparing a college portfolio or getting ready to take AP Studio or AP Art History, I can help you stand out like the rock star that you are! If you are new to Art or Music, have no fear- I'll show you all the tricks I know and we'll discover new ones together. I can help you decode Shakespeare, write that college essay, or bone up for your APUSH or World History exam, too.

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.
