About Linda

I have past experience with tutoring 3rd to 6th grade reading and math as a "Remediation Specialist" hired through an elementary school. This was short term part time employment until finding full time work; but I still have the resources and lesson plans developed and used during that time.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Career Development

I am a licensed recreational therapist who worked two years as an employee specialist for developmentally disabled individuals; some of who had interesting past work history and some who had none. My assessments take 1-3 hours to learn the students life interests that may or may not have to do with work. Knowing general interests leads to also exploring possible job pursuits. I next do past job and specific skills assessment. These two assessments lead directly to an interesting resume communicating individual skills, as well as past careers and education, and with focus if there is a specific job search. Appropriate resources can be researched and explored if education or courses are needed to reach goals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have previous brief experience in tutoring 3rd to 6th grade math and reading as a "remediation assistant. I was given the expectations of specific goals for the end of the 3 month session and developed my own curriculum utilizing recreational therapy training to try to teach, at least partially, by experiential methods. I focused to finding ways to maintain interest to the subject matter.
