I have a Bachelor of Science and Ph.D. in Education. I am a certified elementary (K-8) school teacher, long-time professional tutor, and family educational consultant with extensive experience in teaching/tutoring children in all levels of reading, writing, math (through geometry), and Spanish. I help students with homework, including study and organizational skills.
I specialize in and have had tremendous success with students with AD/HD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and high-functioning autism. I work with parents, students, teachers, and/or others to design and coordinate the best approach and curriculum for my students.
I use a holistic approach to identifying issues that may be impacting learning. When needed, I provide written observation and/or progress reports to help parents communicate with schools and/or family doctors regarding formal diagnosis of learning disabilities. In addition, I have been instrumental in helping parents obtain school accommodations for their children.
Helping students reach their potential is my calling. And I want to make it easy for parents, too - I go to your homes. I live in Shoreline.

We were lucky and happy to find Linda. She had a difficult task working with twin 10-year-old boys, who didn't always want to work according to our schedule. Fortunately, Linda is a dedicated professional who focused on the task at hand, and worked diligently at raising their reading and writing skills to grade level. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to help their kids keep up in school.
This review is revised and based on a conversation I had with my son, one week after his session with Linda P. He was not comfortable with her or the lesson and when pressed, he said one reason was because the "rule" was you were not allowed to get up from the table unless you told her what you needed. This in and of it's self is not an issue for me but what she did while he did his homework by himself, is. She was playing card games on her cell phone. When I told her we would not be soliciting her services again and why, she said she was monitoring him and he was able to do his work on his own.
I am sure that this style works for some students and families, we are not one of them.
Linda seemed to have quite a good rapport with my son. He was comfortable with her, felt good about their tutoring session and was in a great mood after their time together. I am looking forward to having Linda come again next week. Thanks Linda!
We've been working with Linda for two weeks and she's already helping our son make strides, specifically in spelling, currently. Linda is a professional and skilled educator! We're looking forward to continuing our progress with her over the coming weeks this summer! Thank you, Linda!
As I learn more vocabulary, Linda adjusts her dialog with me to add more words and push me a bit. She is so patient with me!
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.
I am a Washington State certified elementary school teacher. I have worked with students of all ages who have AD/HD and dyslexia as a classroom teacher, a professional tutor, and as a parent (i.e., my daughter had all the elements of ADHD). I worked successfully with my daughter and my students to organize their backpacks, assignments, and thoughts. I have helped them to be prepared for the next day, which made them feel confident and happy.
Algebra is scary for many people. I have found that by explaining a little about why or how we use algebra helps. In addition, I let them take as long as they need to compute the problem or until they ask for my help. I often help my students memorize (or read) the steps for each type of problem...and we practice, practice, practice.
My students have actually come to enjoy doing problems. This response may be because I work the problems right along with them. When our answers differ, we do them again to figure out "who's right". Sometimes they're right! We laugh, they feel good, and they want to do another.
