About Lin

I graduated from Monmouth College with a BA in Elementary Education and concentration in English. I've taught third grade for two years, with a focus on math and reading comprehension/fluency. I love being able to make an immediate difference in a student's academic success by offering my tutoring services.

In the past, I have tutored my 3rd graders to prepare them for mandatory state testing for math. Common core has drastically changed the way in which we teach math and many times, even has parents stumped at the steps that students must take for problem solving. To remedy this, I had my students copy reminders and hints onto their math homework. We also highlighted important key words.

I worked intensively with my 3rd graders to prepare them for the mandatory state reading test, which either retains students in 3rd or promotes those who score high enough to 4th grade. Needless to say, the stakes were high. We focused a great deal on comprehension and fluency.

Ever since I student taught in a 1st grade classroom, I saw the necessity of phonemic awareness. Even with my 3rd graders, there was room for reading improvement. At the beginning of the year, 7 of my students were in my intensive reading group for 30 minutes every day. After a few months, those students' fluency rates drastically improved and eventually all of them no longer needed to be in my group!

I have provided the necessary support for students to be successful on exams by giving them the helpful tips and tricks. My students always seemed to be excited for any kind of testing as they were eager to show how much they knew!

I've always been rewarded with smiles and funny anecdotes from my students and I wouldn't trade that for anything!
