I am a certified elementary (K-8) school teacher, long-time professional tutor/coach, 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.

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have a B.S. in Elementary Education and a Ph.D. in Education. I have been a classroom teacher and professional tutor for decades. Many of my students (ranging from ages 6 to 16) are autistic. The reason I'm so successful with these students is that I allow them to do their work at their pace and in their own style/approach. I wait to see if they look confused or are distracted, then I ask if they have a question. They get back on track or we review the steps of what they are working on. My gentle-but-firm approach provides boundaries without undue pressure.

I am a Washington State certified elementary school teacher. I have worked with students of all ages who have dyslexia as a classroom teacher and a professional tutor.

Wonderful and patient tutor!

Linda was kind and patient with my five year old. She came prepared with lesson plans and print-outs. Linda has many years of teaching experience, and speaks both Spanish and English. My daughter (who also speaks Spanish) felt at ease with Linda. We look forward to seeing her each week.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

I like that Linda is very organized with my daughters work. My daughter has enjoyed working with Linda every session they've had. This was not the case with our previous tutors.

Leticia, 13 lessons with Linda

patient and kind tutor

Linda was really helpful with my 5 year old son. She really got him engaged and excited about preparing for kindergarten. She was kind, patient, gentle and incredibly encouraging. She genuinely cared about his needs and his thoughts. My son can't wait to see her again.

Helpful Tutor

Thank you Linda for the information you provided me and helping out my son with his 1st grade subjects. Linda sets her rules in the beginning of session and follows through with them, which helps my son get back on track. It's great seeing you again. 😀

Good emergency help!

Linda was a great resource to my daughter on short notice to help her with College Spanish. My daughter felt more confident after her first lesson with Linda.

Excellent Teacher

Linda has been working with my daughter to help her improve her Spanish speaking skills and knowledge. Through Linda's instruction, guidance and feedback, my daughter has increased her level of confidence to deliver presentations in Spanish.

Great Tutor, Responsive!

We've had a great experience with Linda. Linda had great availability and was able to come tutor our son within a few days of reaching out to her. She is friendly, easy to work with, and our son responds well to her. I'd highly recommend her!

Great Spanish Tutor

First Spanish tutoring session. My son connected quickly with her and was able to master the vocabulary in a single session. UPDATE: We are now 5 sessions into tutoring with Linda and the grade has improved from a D to a B. Only 28 days of school left, but a B+ or an A for the semester look very attainable. He's worked hard to change the grade around and Linda has been excellent support for encouragement, expertise, and study skills.

Talented, experienced tutor for elementary school student

Linda has been tutoring my 1st grade daughter in reading and math since the beginning of this school year. Thanks to Linda and all the hard work they did together, my daughter went from falling painfully behind in reading and comprehension to reading at the grade level and above. She progressed 4 to 5 levels in reading this year. Linda evaluated my daughter's reading skills and quickly understood that the typical phonics method would not work for my daughter. She adjusted the lessons to emphasize site reading skills and provided very effective reading materials to practice reading comprehension and speed. My daughter went from struggling even through the simplest of texts to reading easily. We are very proud of her and grateful to Linda for unlocking our daughter's abilities and helping her learn her individual way. We also saw great results with math. Linda is always punctual and on time. She has not missed one lesson all year. She also brings great positive "we can do it" attitude that undoubtedly helped as well!
