About Linda

I have been a private tutor for seven years to preschool, elementary students, college students, and adults. I have been an ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) tutor for Westerville City Schools.

In addition to being a tutor, I am also an Educational Kinesiologist / Brain Gym Consultant and use integrative / developmental movements to improve students' performance and ease of learning. I have completed school for medical massage therapy and just took the state licensing exam administered by the Ohio Medical Board.

I have more than seven years experience in tutoring. My specialties are working with children K-2, and children and adults with developmental delays and autism.

I work with a variety of students whose native language is English as well as students from many other countries for whom English is a second language. My students include a preschooler with developmental delays, a Somali woman who was partially illiterate in her own language, and a corporate executive from Germany.

One of my students, Anne, was a second grader who received a negative interim report from school. She was a solid C student, and the teacher couldn't find a positive word to say about her. I used a kinsthetic method to teach spelling to her. By the end of the next reporting period, she had graduated to the challenge spelling group, earned an A in social studies, and received only one C. The teacher then had only positive things to say about her. I believe that because Anne learned she could do one thing well, she gained self-confidence and her success generalized into other areas.

We all have unique ways of learning. This is why I do my best to meet my students where they are and to maximize their natural learning styles. I also incorporate integrative / developmental movements into my teaching. These movements make learning easier and improvements are seen both in the tutored subject and also in other areas of the student's life.

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I've worked with children and adults on the autism spectrum for 13 years. I have a degree in psychology. I was an independent provider for state medicaid and worked under 3 amazing consultants. I also work at a school for children on the autism spectrum and receive additional training there.
