About Linda

I have 25 years teaching experience in NYC schools in all grades and subject areas. As a Literacy Coach, I had training in The Reading and Writing Project through Teacher's College at Columbia University. Writing is my area of expertise.

I have also received training in current Math teaching strategies.

I have experience in teaching Special Needs and struggling students and can adapt lessons based on a student's IEP. Teaching students that need to be enriched or challenged, is also an area I am very familiar with.

I have knowledge of Common Core Standards and NYS exams in both ELA and Math. I have 2 children of my own that have been educated in the NYC public school system.

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.

Common Core

I have knowledge and expertise in Common Core Curriculum. When I was teaching at the DOE, we began utilizing Common Core the year before it was required. Recently, the students I tutor are using Common Core and I have remained abreast of the standards and expectations of the Common Core Curriculum. My students have had much academic success with the Common Core Curriculum.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 25+ years teaching Elementary School in grades K-6. I have taught all subjects and all grades. I am knowledgeable about Common Core Curriculum as well as the ELA and Math Standardized tests. For the past 6 years, I have tutored Elementary School students and they have been very successful academically.

Phonics

I have many years experience teaching first and second graders how to read. Phonics was a strategy I utilized to students as one way to learn to read. I also recently tutored a second grade non reader. I used Phonics in addition to other strategies in September. My student was reading beginning chapter books by April of the same year. I was a certified teacher in the NYS public school system for 25+ years. As a Literacy Coach, I had training in The Reading and Writing Project through Teacher's College at Columbia University.

Special Needs

I have 25+ years teaching typical students as well as Special Needs Students. When I first started teaching over 25 years ago, my school was the only school with handicapped access. There were always Special Needs Students mainstreamed into regular classrooms. Throughout my career, I have had students with IEPs that I have taught with modifications. I also tutored 2 Special Needs Students. One of my students was a second grade non reader in September and by April he was reading beginning chapter books. In addition, I have a Special Needs Child of my own so I am very sensitive to the various and individual needs of children.

Study Skills

I was a certified teacher in the NYS public school system for 25+ years. I have prepared my students for all NYS exams. I have been tutoring one on one since 2010 and have strategies to help organize students for studying.
