About Lindsey

I am a professional journalist and have taught writing for 10 years. I may be more expensive than other tutors, but I am among the top writing teachers/private tutors you can hire. I focus in all aspects of academic to business to creative writing, and I excel in writing resumes, cover letters, and college admission essays.

I have received stellar evaluations from both students and administration. I have worked with all academic levels and ages of students. I have a high success rate and guarantee you WILL LEARN regardless of your educational background.

Writing is an art and a science. I recognize raw talent and can help direct it; I also work with students with learning disabilities, and I will be honest about the student's ability to learn. Telling students they can do ANYTHING they want is wrong, because it sets them up for failure. If you want to improve your writing skills, I can teach you any type, style, any tone, and for all media.

I will adjust my fee if a student wants a series of tutoring appointments.

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.

Business

I have written a business/workplace advice column since 1992, and have received numerous thank you's for the help I have given. I worked at an internationally known outplacement firm, DBM, counseling and delivering workshops. I also consult business owners on working through employee problems.

Career Development

I counseled individuals involved in mass layoffs, as well as delivered 3-day resume and interviewing workshops for Drake Beam Morin, an internationally known outplacement firm. I received the Stellar Performance Award for my commitment and results helping people to become more successful in their job searches.

College Counseling

If a student is undecided, I have administered assessment tests and counseled individuals to help find the path that best suits their skills and talents. I have also guided people through my syndicated column, At Work.

English

I have taught college English since 2001, specializing in grammar, sentence structure, punctuation, and all aspects of writing compositions. I am also a syndicated workplace columnist whose editors all comment on my superior writing ability. If you need to improve your writing, I can help you.

ESL/ESOL

I have tutored ESL college students, achieving positive results in helping them improve both their written and verbal language skills.

Grammar

I have taught grammar since 2001.

Proofreading

I wrote and edited 5-7 professional newsletters for CPA and law firms. Proofreading must be at 100% accuracy.

Public Speaking

I was a regular guest on TV38, a Christian station featuring a talk show called "Among Friends." I appeared every three weeks to answer viewers' workplace problems.

Study Skills

I teach study skills in the Foundation Portfolio course at the Illinois Institute of Art. I designed this course to introduce students from diverse backgrounds to academic skills, career skills, and life skills.

Vocabulary

I teach vocabulary as part of my curriculum for writing courses I have developed for Harold Washington College.

Writing

My degree from Northwestern University is in Communication, which is a writing degree that required me to take writing courses in every media. I also worked in broadcast and print journalism at WBBM-TV CBS, The Chicago Tribune, WCFL-TV, and syndicated in newspapers countrywide.
