About Lindsey

I hold a Bachelor of Arts from Mercyhurst University and an Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts from Northern Virginia Community College. At the colleges, I tutored students in biology, philosophy, literature, history, math, ethics, writing, and editing. I teach many styles of dance to students with an age range of 2-70, and therefore have extensive teaching experience.

Based on my experience, the best and most effective way students learn is in a welcoming, warm, and nurturing atmosphere. The manner in which I conduct my tutoring sessions reflect this. Humor and laughter allow the students to relax and focus on the material without feeling stressed and frustrated. At the same time, I hold high expectations for my students; I know that my students can successfully do anything I give them with the right amount of encouragement and time, and I celebrate their accomplishments with them. I trust that we will maintain open and friendly communication so that we will each be aware of what we want out of the sessions.

Feedback is important to students’ growth and development. Constructive criticism allows students an opportunity to attain objective information about their strengths as well as their weaknesses. I understand that time and concentration are required to internalize corrections, and that generous encouragement is needed to maintain focus and avoid frustration as much as possible.

I expect students to maintain a positive attitude, to behave appropriately, and to demonstrate commitment to the learning experience with the knowledge that change is a process. In return, I will demonstrate my own love of learning and teaching by being enthusiastic, energetic, and compassionate. I will teach through example, striving to always be a good role model. Ultimately, I desire to inspire a profound love of lifelong learning and discovery with my students.

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.


I graduated from Mercyhurst University with a BA in Dance, specializing in ballet. I dance professionally with Storling Dance Theater, a company that blends ballet, modern, and physical theater. I have taught ballet for all ages and levels, including private coaching, for three years. I am also the ballet expert for how-to videos.

Bible Studies

I grew up in a non-denominational Bible-believing church and have participated in Bible studies since I was six years old. I co-led a Bible study in college for students, and currently am involved in three separate studies. I attend Heartland Community Church in Olathe, KS.


I minored in Hotel Management at Mercyhurst University. While there, I took cooking classes and had quite a bit of lab experience. Post-graduation, I worked at a bed & breakfast and was in charge of nightly cookie preparation as well morning breakfasts for all guests. I have successfully catered three special events (showers and corporate lunches) for the bed & breakfast.

Public Speaking

In high school, I was a member of the debate team and drama club. In college, I was invited to speak on dance and religion at the National Dance Association’s 2011 conference, San Diego, and on human trafficking at Mercyhurst Art Therapy classes & an Amnesty International chapter meeting. I have taken speech, debate, and acting classes.
