About Linda

Learning should be fun! Enjoy becoming proficient in any of the following subjects or skill areas: writing; reading; vocabulary; English; study skills; public speaking; grammar; music composition; music history; art history; religion; European history;and world history. In addition to these areas of study, tutoring sessions are available for college counseling. As a highly-qualified educator who enjoys teaching, I aim for student learning success. My tutoring method begins with an assessment of the skills and abilities of the individual student in a given subject or skill area. From the assessment results, I develop an individualized approach for achieving the best possible student learning outcome.

I have earned several degrees in higher education, from B.A., M.A. (with a double major), and M.PHL degrees, to a Ph.D. In addition to my position as a full professor in higher education, I am widely published and have a successful track record of public speaking in a variety of national and international venues. I also enjoy the activity of tutoring in the various subjects indicated above.

If you have need of a tutor for any of these subject areas, please feel free to contact me.

Enhance your educational skills and abilities today! I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Art History

I have been teaching higher education courses in the arts and humanities for over twenty-five years. The visual arts is a major component of many of these courses. I am a Full Professor teaching within the Arts & Humanities Div. of a higher education institution. I have a Ph.D. in Music Composition and have done many studies about the correspondences between music and the visual arts. To teach in the arts, one must be well-versed in all areas pertaining to it; this includes the visual arts.

College Counseling

I have over twenty-five years of experience as a professor in higher education. Mentoring, advising, counseling prospective students has been a part of that experience. I know the field of higher education, and I know it well. I am a full professor in higher education and have served in a variety of administrative positions that have contributed to my knowledge and experience with respect to college counseling.

Composition (Music)

I earned a Ph.D. in Music Composition from The Graduate School and University Center of the City University of New York (CUNY). I studied under noted composer Henry Weinberg and took music theory courses with Pulitzer Prize-winning composer George Perle. I also earned the following degrees in Music from the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College (CUNY): B.A. in Music, and an MA, with a double major in Music Theory and in Musicology. I also earned an M.PHL. degree from the CUNY Grad Center.

Public Speaking

I have been speaking in a variety of public forums for over twenty-five years, giving lectures, presenting papers at conferences, and teaching in classrooms. My experience in this area has been recognized by numerous academic awards. I have also been a guest on radio and a cable television show titled "Inside Education."

Religion

I am a college professor, teaching courses for the past twenty-five years that deal with religion in the context of music history and other arts and humanities subjects. These are typically wide-ranging in scope and chronology.

Also, I have authored a chapter which appears in the book titled: "Models and Images of Catholicism in Italian Americana: Academy and Society, published by Forum Italicum Publishing, Stony Brook, NY.

Additionally, I have lectured, often as a guest speaker, on various topics that included religion as a subject area.

I am an experienced vocalist of sacred/religious music, having been a member of various vocal ensembles and choirs for many years, and often singing texts in Latin.

Sight Singing

I have undergraduate and graduate degrees in music and over the years I have taught sight singing and ear-training and have tutored in these areas as well. I have extensive experience with sight singing as I have been trained in this area and have been a member of various vocal groups.

Songwriting

I earned a Ph.D. in music composition, studying under noted composer Henry Weinberg both at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College and at the CUNY Graduate Center. I also studied music theory with noted composer and Pulitzer Prize winner George Perle.

I have composed a number of works and find I enjoy most teaching the skills to others, which I have been doing for over twenty five years in varying capacities.

Study Skills

As a professor in higher education for over twenty-five years, I have been helping students achieve success by improving their study skills. I am very aware that each student is an individual and therefore learns differently. I continue to be successful at identifying such learning differences and at recommending the appropriate approach to developing study skills for student success. Over these years I have also tutored/mentored/advised many students.
