My name is Lina and I have always had a passion for learning and teaching. I started tutoring in high school through my involvement in Honor Societies and volunteer work. Growing up, I also received tutoring through Kumon, Princeton Review, and one-on-one tutoring. I have experienced various styles of teaching and gained different strategies along the way to identify the best fit for a student.
Depending on the student's learning style and personality, I can take a strict or fluid approach to promote productivity. I am creative in my approach and will devise word games, equation challenges, etc. to make content more engaging and (dare I say it) fun. Based on my experiences, I understand that every student has their own way of learning and it is key to develop a strategy that will make learning "stick".
Thanks to years of practice and guidance along the way, I graduated from the College of William and Mary (Williamsburg, VA) in 2012 with a 3.49 GPA, majoring in Finance with a minor in Economics. I am also preparing for the GMAT exam to further my studies in an MBA program.
I am available to tutor evenings after 7pm and weekends, reach out if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you to realize your potential and gain academic success!
I achieved a score of 770 on the SAT Math section and full 800 on the PSAT.
In preparation for the SAT, I spent hours learning and memorizing vocabulary words (thanks to WordSmart and other resources). The SAT often has advanced vocabulary that is rarely used colloquially, but I found that the best way to remember a word is by creating a story or play on words to promote long-term memory.
I scored a 2190 on the SAT and an 800 on the PSAT math section. Additionally, I volunteer as a high school essay reviewer and career development mentor.
In elementary school, I was a math nerd. I competed in Challenge 24 contests and math competitions. I was able to accelerate through repetition and practice.
Reach out if you're looking for a partner in crime who will help you tackle your favorite (and least favorite) subjects! I hope to make our sessions engaging so you forget you're at a tutoring session. :)

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.
