About Linda

Dear Student,

I would love the opportunity to help you with your business projects, learn piano, and or learn how to cook delicious Italian Cuisine. My vast business experience includes a Business Minor from UNI, 11 years of government service in Finance and Human Resources, and 6 years as an entrepreneur of a Restaurant and Spice Company. I've been playing the piano for 45 years and promise to be very patient to help those desiring to learn how to play. Having owned an Italian Restaurant and currently owning a Gourmet Spice Company, I have a passion to turn Novice Cooks into Gourmet Chefs in a matter of minutes.

My style of training is to assess your needs, establish goals, and develop a creative training program specific to your situation. My schedule is flexible, so please let me know what best works for you and I will accommodate you as much as possible.

Look forward to meeting you,

Linda F.

More about my Business Expertise:
I am proficient in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Powerpoint, Adobe Illustrator and Quickbooks. I've developed 3 websites through WIX. 2 for my own businesses and 1 for an artist friend of mine. I utilize Quickbooks for my own business and have developed promotional materials with Adobe Illustrator. Stationary, Business Cards, Invoices, Purchase Orders, Flyers, Banners, Recipe Cards, Fact Sheets, etc. I've been a Microsoft Office fan for years. I love making Powerpoint presentations and have made several with family pictures set to favorite songs, timed to perfection. I believe I could help with any project someone is assigned in addition to help them utilize these software programs to develop a professional business format. Each training program will be designed around your specific needs.

One of my passions is motivational presentations. I can turn a boring Sales Presentation into something exciting. Training Sessions and/or Presentations of any kind do not have to be dull. I will help you overcome fears and nerves and feel good about yourself if you are charged the task to make a presentation. I have developed numerous training manuals and conducted training classes when I worked for the government. I also have been a guest speaker for various luncheons. My goals are to help you find your voice and help you present yourself in an entertaining way that will hold interest so you'll be remembered as a memorable experience.

More about my Piano Expertise:
I have been playing the piano for about 45 years. Early on I played for a church choir and my school choir. As an adult, I have played for dinner parties and for my husband who was at one time Tony Bennett's protege. I believe in teaching students to read music as well as learn chords. For beginners, we will start with the basics; learning the parts of the piano, music notation, hand positioning, and reading music. I consider myself an advanced piano player, but I am not a professional by any means. Those wanting to learn how to play the piano for the first time or touch up on their skills would enjoy me as their tutor. I am patient, have a variety of teaching guides to adapt to personal preferences and an enormous music selection to choose personal favorites for practice sessions. I also have a beautiful Kawai Grand Piano and would prefer to teach lessons from my home in Palm Beach Gardens.

More about my Cooking Expertise:

I always loved to cook, but then I married an Italian. Now, our kitchen is predominantly his, but that's okay, because he is a great cook. When we opened our Restaurant, I developed more cooking skills through watching him and our kitchen staff. Now we sell our own Spices and I demonstrate often in Grocery Stores. I am answering questions all the time regarding various cooking methods during these demonstrations. The website I developed has over 80 Recipes and is a cooking guide in itself. I have also made a few YouTube videos regarding cooking with our Spices. Both my husband and I are available for private cooking classes and/or interactive culinary parties. We guarantee fantastic Italian Cuisine, fun, and memorable experiences. Another one of my passions is to teach Novice Cooks how to become Gourmet Chefs in a matter of minutes and love their time in the kitchen.

More about Tutoring for Reading:
I believe the best way to get someone to read is to have them read about something they are interested in. So, time will be spent on figuring out what a student's interest is and then finding reading material on that subject. After that it will require patience and practice, until the reading becomes easy. Time will also be spent on interpretation of material read.

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.


I have always loved to play the piano for my own pleasure. My husband as a young man was Tony Bennett's protégé; and when we met, it was an instant match for our love of music and entertaining. My mother also plays the piano; so between the three of us, we have a household of musical arrangements at all levels of expertise.

My qualifications allow me to teach beginners and intermediate students. I want to share my knowledge to help those yearning to tap into their talent for music.

My method of teaching focuses on teaching the basics in theory, chord techniques and reading music. I promise to be patient and take the time to discover a student's personal taste in music in order to develop a training program that will fit their level of skill and interests.

I have a beautiful Kawai Grand Piano in my home where I would prefer to give the lessons located in Palm Beach Gardens.
