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.

First Lesson

Since they will only have time for 2 sessions before the PSAT Linda went over test taking techniques along with some sample questions and my daughter found it very helpful. Linda is very calm and patient and used the time they had to the fullest.

Great tutor

Linda is very knowledgeable and works so well with a student's individual abilities and needs. She has been a great help!

Kenna, 4 lessons with Linda

Excellent Tutor

Linda M. was a great tutor for my daughter who was preparing for the SAT. My daughter now feels much more confident in her ability to write a good essay and has incorporated the many tips in all the language arts portions of the test. Linda knows how to encourage and motivate the student to practice, learn and improve.

"Exceptional," "Punctual". Her method and approach reenergized my son. I would strongly recommend Linda to any parent who seeks assistance for their son or daughter preparing for the SAT.

Fantastic Tutor

Linda showed up promptly for my son's SAT tutoring session at our home. She got to work right away with him and so I left them alone for the two-hour session. My son said she was a great tutor and he felt like he learned a lot and would continue to learn a lot during the upcoming sessions. He was pleased and so I was VERY pleased!
