About Linda

I am available to tutor your child in grades K-12 and even some college level courses. I have a Master's in Reading and permanent NY certification in Reading with over 20 years of classroom experience. I am able to help strengthen your child's reading comprehension, letter-sound recognition, sight word and vocabulary, reading fluency and writing skills. I have tutored students on essay writing requirements for NYS Regents Exams. Since the Regents Exams are focused on reading comprehension along with factual retention I can help students with the Global Studies, U.S. History and English Language Arts Regents exams. I have experience with the reading and essay components of all of these exams.
I have solid experience with the reading and writing sections of the SAT and have tutored students to strengthen their reading comprehension and refresh their vocabulary,grammar, editing and essay writing skills as well as strategies involving time management while taking the SAT.

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 have permanent New York State Certification as a Reading Teacher K-12. I have worked as a remedial reading teacher in grades 4 - 12. I can assist students in strengthening reading skills at the elementary level so that they can read for meaning and read to learn from content area subjects including social studies, science and math.

Handwriting

As a certified teacher, I have taught elementary students cursive handwriting. I personally have exceptional cursive handwriting that I use to model for my students. There are practice materials I will purchase to use with students I am teaching cursive handwriting.

Nutrition

As a health education teacher for 20 years I have taught nutrition units in middle school and high school health courses.

Phonics

I have worked with 4th-6th grade students in strengthening their phonics decoding skills.

Speech

Speech is the closest topic I could find for public speaking. I have fine-tuned public speaking skills courtesy of 20+ years as a teacher. I have also presented staff development workshops to teachers I have worked with and presented at NYS health conferences. I am extremely qualified to help someone become a public speaker.

Study Skills

As a teacher I have developed and taught study skills units. While at Niagara County Community College as a part time reading instructor I worked in the Academic Achievement Center meeting with struggling students on numerous study skill strategies ranging from proper note-taking, test prep, time management, how to study from notes, what to study and test prep.
