About Linda

As a teacher of high school Latin and writing, and a life-long lover of learning, I've acquired some unique skills when it comes to educating kids and teens! I know how to relate to young people with humor and creativity and I really enjoy doing so. My love of youth and its ideals and honesty are what got me into the field of teaching in the first place, and they are the same motives which drive me in tutoring. I love empowering the future leaders of our world!

My teaching methods are scrappy and flexible: however students learn best is how I will teach them. Most importantly, I will try to bring the material down to earth and make it relevant in the everyday life of your son or daughter. I am a firm believer in the idea that we don't easily learn those things which do not matter to us, so I see the relationship between the curriculum and learner to be of utmost importance.

While my undergraduate degree is in Ancient Studies (Latin and classical history/culture), I have a minor in English and have taken additional post-bacc classes in psychology at Harvard. I also have been a lover of philosophy, science, and world literature for over a decade, and am proficient in these subjects as well.

I look forward to working with your child and helping him or her to attain a love of learning and an excitement for education that will last them a very long time. Thank you for your time!
