About Linda

For the past five years, I have been a writing and journalism instructor for such schools as Seton Hall University, William Paterson University, Mediabistro, and University of Phoenix. My experience includes:

• Instructing students on Business Writing and Communication, including identifying the stylistic elements of business writing, and crafting letters, memos, and more.
• Instructing students on Grammar and Writing Basics, including sentence structure, verb tenses, boosting vocabulary, and creating an effective paragraph.
• Teaching Magazine Editing and Writing, as well as Intro to Journalism, including developing story ideas, researching topics, conducting interviews, writing queries and features, and editing articles.
• Leading online chats with students, as well as respond to their queries in a timely manner.
• Providing feedback on all assignments, as well as career advice.

In addition, I have been a professional writer and editor for over 10 years. My work has appeared in a variety of national publications and websites, including The New York Post, The New York Times, Parents, Woman’s Day, The Knot, New Jersey Bride, ModernBride, FashionableBride, WEtv, Marie Claire, The Nest, Seventeen, Conceive, Woman’s World, Working Mother and Prevention, among others. I cover a wide range of topics, but my passion is writing about parenting, weddings, and health.
