Bio

My experience in teaching dates back 30-plus years. After a degree in French (and one year studying in Paris), I briefly taught French at LSU. After obtaining an MBA and a CPA certificate, I began teaching accounting at the University of New Orleans in 1983 -- 30 years this fall!

In the interim, I obtained a law degree and worked for a large local firm and for a large corporation. I have continued to teach at UNO on an intermittent basis, and currently teach accounting, finance, law and...

My experience in teaching dates back 30-plus years. After a degree in French (and one year studying in Paris), I briefly taught French at LSU. After obtaining an MBA and a CPA certificate, I began teaching accounting at the University of New Orleans in 1983 -- 30 years this fall!

In the interim, I obtained a law degree and worked for a large local firm and for a large corporation. I have continued to teach at UNO on an intermittent basis, and currently teach accounting, finance, law and ethics in its graduate engineering program - something like an MBA for engineers.

Because I teach so many international students, and because I remember the obstacles of becoming fluent in a second language in another country, I am interested in teaching English as a second (or foreign) language. I am currently pursuing certification as an ESL teacher. In the meantime, I would like to begin tutoring, and feel fully qualified to begin. I understand the need to encourage conversations in English, work through mistakes, and have fun in the process!

I enjoy cooking, reading, traveling (mostly to France!), and am an ardent pet lover. I achieve the most professional satisfaction from teaching, and thus I choose not to practice law or accounting, but strive for teaching opportunities.

I graduated cum laude from law school where I served as Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review. Following law school, I was fortunate to be selected as a law clerk to a federal court judge.

Incredibly helpful!!

Linda is great. She really knows her stuff, explains the materially logically and makes complicated material much easier to understand.

Joseph, 2 lessons with Linda

Patient and Interested!

Linda is amazing with my 7 year old! My daughter is interested and excited about learning French, but so is Linda! She is a patient and knowledgeable tutor, but she is passionate about French and is a life-long student herself. Couldn't ask for a better fit for my daughter.

Mia, 8 lessons with Linda

Patient and knowledgeable

I think reaching out to Linda was one of the best academic decisions I could have made. I have a better grip on the material now and look forward to our next meetings. She's the best!

Cara, 1 lesson with Linda

Great tutor!

Working with Linda has been terrific. I'm getting so much more out of my class by working with her. My grades have sustained, and she is a joy to work with. Linda is also very flexible in working with me and setting up meeting times that work well with my busy schedule. I highly recommend Linda!
