Fun and Effective English Tutor wants to help students learn relevant and required aspects of of English: Reading, Writing, Grammar, Vocabulary, and Public Speaking

Methodology

I am an enthusiastic and knowledgeable English Teacher who is originally from Maine. Recently having moved to Florida, I wish to help Middle school and High School students improve in all areas of English: Reading, Writing, Grammar, Vocabulary, and Public Speaking.

My lessons are interactive and relevant to students, using traditional and creative methods( e.g. Jeopardy game) to enhance students' performances in required areas of Language Arts.

Past students have commented that I make studying English fun; I teach with passion, humor, and knowledge.

Background

During my English teaching career, I was asked by a number of Guidance Counselors to tutor students within our high school as well as students who were not able to attend school for various reasons.

All students I tutored were able to pass their English courses which was a requirement for graduation. I found I really enjoyed tutoring students one-on-one, and was able to focus on their individual needs in great detail.

Some of these students still keep in touch with me; that is one of the joys of this profession.having achieved a Bachelor of Arts

Linda's resume

As I was majoring in English at The University of Maine, I also enrolled in the required Education courses to allow me to teach at the Secondary Level. With a Bachelor of Arts Degree, I was able to student teach under the tutelage of my favorite teacher.

When I finished my student teaching, the principal asked me to apply for the English opening at his school. I did and enjoyed nine successful years there.

Later on in my teaching career, several of my students nominated me to be published in Who's Who Among America's Teachers. I was truly honored.
