About Lindsay

I grew up loving all subjects in school and being very active in sports. By high school I had narrowed my interests a bit to focus more on science and swimming and graduated as salutatorian of my class. In college I majored in biology and minored in psychology and graduated cum laude. I was also a member of the University of Toledo Women's Swimming and Diving team. I was on the varsity team from 2003-2007 and I was a captain for the '06-'07 season. After my swimming career was over I took a fifth year to finish my biology degree and the psychology minor I had picked up. During that fifth year I worked in the athletic academic office to keep my swimming scholarship while I finished school. In the athletic academic office I tutored student athletes in various subjects. I also got into a research lab on campus and decided to stick around for a graduate degree in biology. During my last 2 years of undergrad I worked as a swim coach, swim instructor, and lifeguard.

While in graduate school I was a teaching assistant (TA) in undergraduate lab classes and occasionally filled in for my boss lecturing in cell biology. My responsibilities as a TA included setting up the lab, lecturing and presenting (power point) to students, holding office hours to help with study techniques and questions over the material, and grading reports, quizzes, and exams. It was during this time that I realized I loved teaching. One of my primary duties as a TA was interacting with students one on one or in smaller groups to make sure they understood the class material. I love interacting with students and figuring out a teaching method that makes sense to them.

Not only am I well versed in several scientific areas, but I have over 6 years of tutoring and teaching experience.

I swam competitively for 16 years. In high school I was a finalist at the Ohio State Championships. In college, I was a Mid-American Championship finalist and team captain. Throughout high school and college I accrued over 6 years of teaching swim lessons and coaching. I was also a certified lifeguard from the time I was 16-23.

Contact me to schedule a lesson. I look forward to helping you achieve success!

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.

Swimming

I swam competitively for 16 years and was a captain of my high school and college teams. I have coached for 3 different swim teams across 6 years and I gave private swim lessons during that time. I am proficient at teaching young children (3 yrs old was my youngest) to adults of all swimming abilities or lack there of. I was also a certified lifeguard on and off for 8 years.
