About Linda

I have degrees in Russian, French and Business Administration. I have taught Russian and French at the high school level. In addition, I have tutored inmates at the Framingham pre-release center in math and English to help them get their GED.

I have also done substitute teaching at the elementary, middle and high school levels.

I enjoy helping students understand the logic in algebra.

I have degrees in Russian and French. I spent 2 years in the Peace Corps in francophone Africa (Niger). I have visited Russia several times and do volunteer work with Russian speakers here.

In addition to holding an MBA, I have significant experience in all aspects of marketing (including, strategic planning, direct mail, press releases, advertising, market research, writing newsletters, etc.)

Please contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a lesson. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Marketing

I have an MBA from Suffolk University. As the Administrator of Educational Services at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy in Cambridge, I was responsible for direct mail marketing of our seminars throughout the US, drafting and distributing press releases, writing ad copy, tracking expenses and success rates. At Charles River Hospital, I was involved in strategic planning, marketing seminars for psychiatrists and psychologists, planning and marketing a major conference for 500 attendees, and marketing community seminars.

Microsoft Outlook

At work, I routinely use Outlook for email and the calendar. I am also familiar with the sections called People and Tasks. I have been using Outlook for many years.

Russian

I hold a BA degree in Russian language and literature from Barnard College in Columbia University. Early in my career, I taught Russian at Lexington and Dracut High Schools. For many years I have done volunteer work with the Russian-speaking community in Boston: for Little Brothers--Friends of the Elderly and for the holiday program at Hebrew Senior Life, I serve as Russian liaison.
