About Lynda

I have been teaching for 20+ years mostly in grades 1 and 2. I recently got my Reading Specialist degree and tutored 5th graders, 1st graders and high schoolers who were struggling with different areas of reading. I have had classroom experience with elementary students and tutoring after school with many different ages.

I like to provide variety in tutoring lessons, things that the students actually like to work on but help them excel in the regular classroom. I would be in constant communication with the teacher of the child to find out what areas are of greatest concern.

At the beginning of tutoring any student, I give comprehensive assessment to determine where the child is and take the plans from there. I do progress monitoring to make sure that the activities done are actually helping the child. I gladly send these results to any person associated with the child that needs to have this information.

I love working one on one with kids and see so much growth that I cannot see in my own classroom as fast!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I can work with children K - 6 in most subjects, however, Reading would be my strongest area. I have a provisional Reading Specialist degree and have worked with every grade level of students in reading comprehension, vocabulary and making connections to reading to make things easier.

Phonics

I have a strong phonetic, phonological awareness and phonemic awareness background. I have taught a explicit phonic based reading program every year I have taught first and second grade.

Study Skills

I have knowledge about how to help study skills in K - 2!
