About Linda

I have all of my necessary clearances and I have spend many years surrounding and educating children in a variety ways through volunteer and employment. I have an Elementary Education Degree from Penn State University and I am PA certified teacher. I am enthusiastic, creative, detail oriented, knowledgeable, motivated, dedicated, and flexible.

My teaching experience includes: One year in 4th grade in a private school. I was then transferred to Kindergarten where I remained for 5 years. At this school, we used the A-Becka curriculum; in kindergarten the students achieved a 600 word reading vocabulary.

I also, worked for Cen-Clear Child services, where I was the director/teacher/home visitor for the Woodland Full Day Full Year Head Start Class. For Cen-Clear, I am currently teaching at the Kinder-camp program at Clearfield Elementary. I have also done so for the Philipsburg-Osceola District 2 years ago.

In addition, I have worked as a summer Reading and Math tutor 3 different summers for the Philipsburg-Osceola and Clearfield districts. Another educational experience was as the coordinator of an after school activity and tutoring program for grades 6-8th. There I planned implemented and guided the lesson plans and activities for my students.

Finally, I have worked with children through parent volunteering, substituting at several districts, youth leadership, bible school teacher, and summer YMCA program director for over 15 years. I remain current and enthusiastic about learning and always seek to improve my teaching skills. I feel that I can be useful in your child's educational needs.

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.

Bible Studies

I have 13 years experience teaching Sunday School, Bible School, Jr Youth Leadership, and 6 years at a Clearfield Alliance Christian School.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an Elementary Education Degree from Penn State University and I am PA certified teacher-- This required all the necessary testing and course work to complete. I am also up to date on my Act 48 credits to remain "highly Qualified."

Phonics

In being a kindergarten teacher for 5 years, I worked closely teaching my students phonics as well as site words. Phonics is the backbone of learning to read well. When my students left my class they were reading small chapter books and 97% of them had a reading vocabulary of 600 words.
