About Linda

I have been in the teaching profession for 37 years and have taught kindergarten through college. I have a bachelor's degree in English with a concentration in mathematics and a master's degree in English literature with a concentration in composition. I spent most of my career as a college professor, teaching at such schools as Georgia State, Mercer University, Flagler College, and in the Governor's Honors Summer Program at the College of Charleston. I have also taught at Lithia Springs High School with a PBTA (Performance-based teaching certificate) where I taught the advanced and accelerated classes in literature and composition. As a graduate student, I tutored in the GSU Writing Center and evaluated Regent's exams. At Mercer University, I taught SAT prep in addition to my English classes. I have successfully tutored students in preparing for the SSAT. I am now retired and returning to part-time teaching as a private tutor.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

SAT Math

The new SAT math section covers arithmetic, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and miscellaneous subjects, such as probability, data, and graph analysis. I have a minor in mathematics as well as a life-long love of math. I have prepared students for all areas of the SAT, including math.

SAT Reading

I have taught both classes and individual students in preparing for the SAT. The best approach is a combination of coaching on the specific skills required by the SAT and coaching on "how" to take the test.

SAT Writing

I have taught both classes and individual students in preparing for the Writing and Reading sections of the SAT. The ideal preparation includes a review of subject material relevant to the particular area of the SAT and "how" to take the test in a better, smarter, and faster way.

SSAT

I have successfully prepared students for the SSAT. My latest student scored in the 90 percentile in every category.

Writing

I am an experienced teacher in all genres--composition, creative writing, and business.

Great tutor!

Not only is Linda knowledgeable, she is very patient and approachable. My son enjoys working with her and looks forward to their sessions. She has made what was a potentially stressful situation dealing with our son's challenges with math and an upcoming standardized test very manageable. We are so glad to have found her.
