About Linda

After teaching first grade for 16 years and adult ESL for four years, I have moved from California to Las Vegas, Nevada. I currently hold a California Clear Multiple Subjects Credential (expires in 2020) and am TESL certified (Teaching English as a Second Language).

I would like to tutor a few students in the area who need help. Maybe it will be you!

I have taught reading, phonics, math, social studies and science to first graders for 16 years. During my career I have also taught kindergarten, second, fifth and eighth grades, as well as English as A Second Language to Community College students. Additionally, I have experience with preschool aged children.

If you have a student who is struggling in elementary school, maybe I can help! And if you need some ESL tutoring, I can help you with that as well.

Please contact me for a no obligation meet and greet!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently hold a California Clear Multiple Subjects Credential (expires 2020) and have taught first grade for 16 years. During my tenure, I participated in 16 years of professional development in all elementary subjects areas, including reading, math, science and social studies.

Phonics

I have taught first grade for 16 years in California, where phonics is a systematic scaffold to teaching children to read. Once letter/sound recognition is understood, students can learn to begin to read CVC words and they are on their way to becoming readers!

Using diagnostic tools, such as the BPST, it is easy to see where students should begin their phonics learning. Whether it's with consonants, short vowels, digraphs, CVC words or blending.

Extremely knowledgeable & wonderful all around

Linda has been tutoring my 7 year old daughter for a short time and we both love her. I love that she is a former teacher which really helps my child. She is an excellent tutor all around. Linda is patient, very personable, intelligent and makes the tutoring lesson fun, which keeps my daughter interested and focused. I would highly recommended Linda and look forward to many more lessons!
