About Linda

Learn English, grammar, spelling, history, literature, photography or a wide range of other topics from a reporter!

I've worked on the copy desk of a Manhattan publishing house and I've been a PR rep at a Manhattan ad agency. In addition to tutoring, I do a great deal of freelance writing and editing, and I do PR work in Indianapolis through my own tiny firm. I've edited books and I've written countless magazine and newspaper articles, including stories for big papers like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.

My teaching style is to try to make learning fun! I am very patient as long as the student tries. If the student doesn't want to try I'll do my best to figure out why and change that, but I want results as much as you do.

I love to learn new things, and I strive to instill that same enthusiasm in my students.

It's a big world out there, full of challenges. Let me help you reach your goals!

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.

Desktop Publishing

I have produced many different publications through desktop publishing using QuarkXPress. These publications include catalogs, magazines, newspapers, autograph cards, advertisements and newsletters.

Photography

I enjoy photography, especially portrait work. I have had photographs published in The New York Times, USA Today and several other publications.

Spelling

I have more than 30 years of experience as a reporter, editor and PR person, so I know the importance of spelling! I have also worked on the copy desk of a Manhattan publishing house. I've written countless newspaper and magazine stories, and I've copy-edited four books.
