About Lindsey

I love teaching and tutoring because of my love for learning. After having a great experience in my undergraduate studies of Accounting, I realized I wanted to teach others and have an impact on their learning. Then, after living in a foreign country and learning a new language, I decided to become an English teacher here in the United States. Once I earned my master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, I became an instructor of Academic English as a Foreign Language at a local community college. Because of my second language learning experiences, I can easily relate to my students. I am a compassionate, energetic teacher and enjoy creating a learning atmosphere both in and out of the classroom.

Specializing in Reading and Writing, I employ the communicative approaches of TESOL. Therefore, my students learn more than just the subject at hand as they use the target language to achieve their learning goals. The use of these methods and the meaningful material involved challenge students and enable them to learn more than anticipated. Facilitating critical thinking and inspiring discussion, lessons and assignments are typically the beginning of learning, rather than the end goal.

Due to my undergraduate experiences, since I also know many accounting practices and am conversationally fluent in the Spanish language, I tutor in Accounting and Spanish as well, and love doing so. These add to a broad base of subjects in which I tutor.

I will provide stimulating lessons and homework based on your preferences. Seeking to learn from the tutoring experience as well, I welcome feedback and can adjust our meetings as needed to ensure that you are receiving the tutoring you need.

I am readily available and have a flexible schedule. I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, but will happily attempt to coordinate makeup sessions.

Please contact me to see if I can assist your learning needs. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Accounting

I have a Bachelor's degree in Accounting from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I loved learning the subject and still enjoy tutoring in it. I completed two paid internships while in college and I have completed my own and others' tax returns over the past few years.

English

I was previously an English Instructor at the community college level. I can help with all aspects of the subject.

ESL/ESOL

I previously worked as an English (ESL/EFL) instructor at local community colleges and have been teaching for more than two years. Additionally, I have experience teaching ESL classes to citizenship-seekers at a local immigrant and refugee assistance organization.

Grammar

As a former English Instructor, I regularly graded students' papers and gave grammar feedback. I have been implicitly teaching grammar for the past couple of years. I also took a thorough grammar course during my graduate studies.

Proofreading

As an English instructor, and a successful graduate school student, I read and grade essays and research papers on a regular basis. I am very capable of meeting with students to go over their writing, or doing so online.

Reading

I have taught four semesters of college reading courses. I am very familiar with pre-, post-, and during-reading strategies and can assist students in learning how to better comprehend and analyze material.

Spanish

I took four semesters of Spanish altogether throughout high school and college. I then lived in Nicaragua for a year and became conversationally fluent in the language. I absolutely love speaking in Spanish and helping others learn it.

Writing

As a former English instructor at a community college, I taught writing every day, whether implicitly or explicitly. I graded students' papers on a regular basis and gave feedback to improve their writing. I've been teaching writing for over two years and took extensive writing courses during graduate school.

She didn't make me feel as if I was beneath her intellectually like some professors do. She actually boosted my confidence a lot in writing after a professor tore it down. I've only met with Lindsey once and she's seems very down to earth with the way she tutors. Laid back. I wish I would have met with her a lot sooner for help with my past classes. I would definitely recommend Lindsey and look f
