About Linda

I was a Math major in college. I enjoy helping others grasp math concepts, especially in Algebra. It is exciting to see a student light up when they first grasp a concept. I taught an Advanced level math class in a home school setting. While I enjoy teaching in the classroom, my favorite means of teaching is one on one. I am an encourager.

I home schooled my son from 5th grade through 12th. I taught Accounting and Business at Grove City College for more than 3 years. Recently, I was the Learning Center Supervisor, where I supervised teenagers studying for their GED. With WyzAnt, I have tutored more than 500 hours.
