About Linda

I taught math at the high school and middle school levels in Orange County Florida for 16 years. My retirement was in June, 2016. I am currently certified in math and ESE but feel qualified in English since I have edited both books and newspapers during my prior work history. I have helped high school students be successful at passing the ACT even though they had difficulty with algebraic concepts and word problems.

I feel I can help most students because I have the patience to work all types of students (I was certified as a school psychologist). I, myself, have a learning disabled son who is now a successfully employed adult. He had the confidence to graduate from high school despite his extreme difficulty with math. While I cannot guarantee you or your child will be successful, I will provide a "safe zone" in which mistakes are expected and can be overcome. There are no hopeless students, only people who do not believe in themselves and their potential.

I have taught Geometry 1, Algebra 1, Pre-algebra, and Intensive Math.

Please call if you are interested in getting to know each other. Being retired, my hours are flexible.

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.
