About Linda

Knowing a subject doesn't mean you can teach. I've taught for over 30 years and worked with all levels of students, first grade through college level and basic students through advanced. I have a B.S. in Education and a Master's degree in English. I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I've started successful SAT programs at two of my former high schools. Students' scores increased an average of 100-300 points after completing my course. I've helped develop curriculum and mentored new teachers entering the educational field. I tutor through several other agencies and really enjoy helping students reach their goals. I not only teach the subject, but I also help my students understand their own methods of learning. This knowledge will help you learn to help yourself. I love teaching and try to make my tutoring sessions enjoyable as well as fruitful. I would love to work with 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.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked with ESL students in my teaching career. ESL students not only need vocabulary, but sentence structure, idioms, and basic phonetics to be successful in the English language. I am currently working with an ESL student and taught in a summer camp in China at Nanjing University.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills all of my teaching career. For understanding of material that is read, I recommend using the Cornell system of notetaking. This process allows students to condense material -- ask questions and develop a summation of the important aspects of the assignment. I also have used and taught KWL charts, graphic organizers, RAFT for writing papers, and reading techniques for various reading assignments. Simple tools such as folders, highlighters, and dividers can help students organize and retain information much easier. I can also help students understand their own learning style with a simple test and teach the mechanics of that style for greater efficiency of learning. SQR3 is a standard means of attacking reading assignments especially in such courses as history and science.

I use these and more strategies to help students be successful in the classroom.
