Hello, my name is Linda A.

I hold a Professional Educator's Certificate Mathematics K-12, Social Studies 6-12 and Special Education K-12. In addition, I have been prepping teachers and future teachers to pass their Certification Exams, such as FCAT and PRAXIS. I have been teaching for well over 20 years and I still love making class time fun and memorable!

I specialize in providing individualized instruction to each student. I have taught students ranging from 5-83 years old and each student brings its own needs and desires. Some students need to "see" the lesson, some need to "hear" it, some need to "feel" it and some learn best from a combination styles.

In order to benefit the students as much as possible, I welcome any resources or suggestions students or parents can provide. I am easy to reach and will always provide quick responses. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule complimentary 15 minute online lesson.

I look forward to seeing you or your child in the classroom!

Special Needs

As a Certified Special Education Teacher, I have taught students of all exceptionalities and ages. I have taught them in self-contained classrooms, inclusion classrooms and/or general education classrooms as well as privately online. One parent wrote “Xxx (child's name) is slow to process and has retention issues, Linda is always patient and encouraging and nonjudgmental. She was engaging with Xxx without making him feel rushed or judged for what he didn't know. Provided practice and activities that were challenging but still at his level. Xxx doesn't love having to have extra tutoring in the summer, but he doesn't fight it when he knows he'll be working with Linda.”

Knowledgable and flexible tutor.

She was very patient with me and was flexible with my schedule. She had a lot of helpful study tips that I have been using to study. She gave me lots of practice too and was always willing to answer my questions.

Noelle , 7 lessons with Linda

the first class of PRAXIS

Linda taught me how to read fast and efficiently. For example, what I should do if I don't know the answer: Choose a letter and a direction: If I choose C and up, I will read C first, then B and C. Finally, C and D and E. In addition, it is also important to delete some choices and the possibility of answering correctly will be much higher.

Linda is a Knowledgeable, caring, patient tutor for PRAXIS

I really like Linda A as my tutor for PRAXIS. She made the material very clear and much less overwhelming. I enjoyed my time with her and felt more confident in my studying. She gave me clear guidance in how and what to study. I had taken the test before Linda and not passed. Then I started working with Linda… and I PASSED right away!!!

Wonderful!!!

M. Linda has done wonders for our daughter! I can't say enough the amazing changes I see in our daughters willingness to learn and confidence to try. She is excited for her lessons in a way that she never was, and her progress is evident. All this we owe to Ms. Linda- her kindness, patience, and teaching has brought not only joy to our daughter, but in turn our whole family!
