About Lindsay

I'm Lindsay. I mostly focus in teaching Photography, Art, Writing, Literature, and History to all ages. I love all of these subjects, and first and foremost, my hope is to be able to pass on love of those subjects and of learning in general to those I tutor. I want to create a nurturing, fun environment, where students want to come to their lessons.

I received my BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design in the subject of photography. I am proficient in Lightroom and Photoshop although I prefer teaching lessons on how to shoot in the field, compose, and edit for portfolio. I've also taken workshops in Santa Fe with Bostick and Sullivan, and recently completed a photo workshop in Benabbio, Italy.

In high school, I took AP Literature and AP Language, and I excelled at both. Following that, in college, I completed my minor in Creative Writing from SCAD. Most recently, I took a writers workshop in Chamonix, France, and another in Benabbio, Italy. When it comes to English, I can help students from the elementary school level up to college, and with anything from crafting essays, working on questions, interpreting literary works, or providing critique for creative purposes.


Even though most students (or parents of students) reach out to a tutor in order for themselves or their child to do better in classes or to excel at testing, I have always believed those benefits to be a secondary function of learning. I only tutor the subjects I love, so that I can pass on a true joy of learning to my student. When you become really engaged in a subject, the information is better retained, which causes a chain reaction in doing better at everything you initially came to a tutor for. Learning to love a subject also spurs a student on to want to do better in general.


I strive to create a safe, nurturing environment so that every student feels excited (or at least not horrible) when they come to tackle a subject. I teach literature and creative writing, history and photography. I hope that if you need a little help with something, you will come to me.

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.
