About Lindsay

Working as a private school teacher, one of the most rewarding moments for me was guiding a student through an assignment one-on-one. There is nothing quite like the excitement of watching a student understand something for the first time, watching them move from confusion to confidence! I have worked with adults, and all grades K-12.

I studied English Literature at a top 20 ranked liberal arts college -- ranked #8 in the nation for undergraduate teaching. While there, I developed a deep knowledge of writing, reading, grammar and analysis at the college level, but also an appreciation for languages and travel. Studying Spanish in Madrid, I gained a great appreciation for the way that different languages and cultures are similar, yet have valuable differences.

Later, I taught in a Chilean public school as part of a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization affiliated with the Harvard Center for International Development. While there, living and working among Chileans, I experienced first-hand the exhaustion and overwhelm which can come from living and working in a new country with different customs, traditions and language. As a teacher at a boarding school, I was able to use my experience living abroad to help international students adjust. I love learning about other cultures, and giving people the customized help that they need to move forward with language.

I've developed school curricula, and am confident I can put together lessons to address what you need. Let me know how I can help!
