About Lindsay

Hello!
My experience includes 6 years of upper elementary teaching in a rigorous private school setting where the focus was on mastering the building blocks such as phonics, grammar, spelling, and math facts. Tutoring is a way for me to use my teaching expertise and relational skills to helps students grow to their fullest capacity.

Currently, the Common Core tends to downplay the fundamentals while focusing on a curriculum that is more concerned with advocating a political agenda (such as Feminism or Animal Rights) than with building knowledge in a systematic way. With my tutoring, students will not only be successful at school but will also be starting to fill in the gaps from the state of our public school system.

Here are some of my specialties:

-Rigorous teacher who focuses on building reading skills while studying Math, Science, and Social Studies
-Models and encourages a growth mindset where all mistakes are seen as opportunities to grow

Side note for fun!
-Competitive swimmer for 14 years
-Recently swam a 2.4 mile race in the Pacific Ocean along the north coast of Oahu in Hawaii.

Feel free to contact with me with any questions or simply to learn more.

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.

ADD/ADHD

Throughout my experience, I have worked with numerous students with ADD/ADHD diagnoses. Since students with ADD/ADHD maintain focus when learning actively, I find educational games, conversations, or small tasks produce the most amount of growth. Over-stimulation is a challenge as well so, I like to keep the work space organized, quiet, and cover up any non-essential text or pictures.

Elementary (K-6th)

I majored in Elementary Education from Wheaton College (Illinois) with a focus in Psychology. My experience includes 5 years of formal classroom teaching in intermediate elementary at rigorous private schools, one year full-time in a Special Education School, and two more years involved in tutoring struggling Middle School students in the public schools.

Swimming

I was a competitive swimmer for 15 years who enjoys teaching, modeling, and evaluating swimming technique for all four strokes. I'm excited to see people of all ages learn the best form of exercise as well as stay safe near the water! My best strokes were butterfly and breaststroke but more recently, I have only been doing long distance freestyle open water swimming.
