I am a certified teacher who taught English at Wagner College, and I'm a former Star-Ledger editor. Because I've also taught English/ESL at a grade-school level in private school, I'm available to teach younger and older students.
I can walk you though grammar and writing basics, or I can help you add dramatic flair in your writing. Whether you want to learn a newspaper editor's tips to clean up a story or whether you want to master the basics, I will be happy to help.
Basic grammar lessons: In my basic grammar lessons, you will learn the simplified steps to creating grammatically correct sentences, paragraphs and essays. I have a N.J. English Teacher certificate and a NJ Reading Teacher certificate.
Advanced writing and proofreading lessons: I'm also a former Star-Ledger editor/and writer who can jazz up your writing style. In my advanced proofreading class, you'll learn how to manipulate sentence structures. You'll begin seeing grammar as a traffic signal to prioritize the ideas within a sentence or paragraph. And playing with syntactic structures, such as gerunds, participles and appositives, can create a desired impression on your readers.
Other tricks are hiding controversial topics through using passive voice or through burying the lead. Alternatively, your leads will shout out if you use personal narrative statements in the active voice.
You can also learn to add descriptive adjective flourishes, or to create dramatic flair through punchier verb choices, or to create concise, explanatory business statements.
But whether you choose to take basic grammar lessons or advanced writing and proofreading lessons, I look forward to meeting you and to helping you view language in a new way.

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.
Linda S. has not yet had a background check. After sending a message to Linda, you will be able to order a background check for $7.99. The check will be processed by First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
