I am a WA certified educator with over 30 years experience. I have a BA (major in Art/Photography and minor in Language Arts).

I have spent over 25 years in the classroom (grades 3-9) and five years as an interventionist for grades 4-6 and a Reading Recovery Specialist, supporting the literacy needs of struggling kindergarten, first, and second graders. I have taught in California, Texas, Washington, and overseas. My lessons are individualized, geared to the specific needs of each student.

Knowledgeable, methodical, passionate, and patient instructor who takes a genuine interest in our son's growth

Ms. Linda has been the reading instructor for our son since the pandemics start and we cannot thank her enough on how much positive impact she has made to our son in his reading via phonics, vocabularies, confidence in picking up books to read. She took a genuine interest in our son's reading growth and she takes the progress of my son seriously which is very hard to find nowadays. When we first started with Ms. Linda, she provided materials ahead of time so that we could gauge where my son's level was. Then during the first class, she provided a full assessment of the reading/phonic level where my son's level was. During subsequent lessons (even till after more than 30+ lessons with her), she would provide homework, guidance whats the strength and improvements needed, treats for encouragement, and constant feedback to the parents. Her approach is methodical and patient. We have seen lots of growth on my son since we started with Ms. Linda to the point where we had been very comfortable to stay homeschooled for the next 12 months as we have counted on Ms. Linda impact on our son. We appreciate her work and impact so much. Thank you, Ms. Linda.

Great tutor!

Linda is so patient and encouraging! She spent time building a rapport with my daughter before starting her assessment. She explained everything they were going to do before starting, and if my daughter struggled she encouraged her to do her best!

Excellent Reading Tutor

My daughter had her first session with Linda today. She is extremely personable, connected with my daughter right off the bat and was very good at helping her through words, and encouraging her to persevere when she was frustrated. Highly recommend!

Linda is WONDERFUL! Kind and Patient. Our daughter felt very comfortable with her.

Today we did testing. She explained where our daughters strengths and weakness are and how she feels she will be able to help. We look forward to seeing her again soon.

Amazing!!

Linda is a very knowledgeable tutor and educator. In the short amount of time that she has been mentoring my daughter, I can already see a change in her. I will continue to take Nadia to her. Great job Linda!
