I currently tutor and provide homework help to students in grades K-8.
I enjoy writing, and have an excellent understanding of English grammar, spelling, punctuation, syntax, vocabulary, and writing style.
I also understand and am sympathetic to the various difficulties that students may experience with writing. I am patient, always willing to listen and answer questions, and always eager to help each student express him/herself well in writing.

so happy I chose to have Linda as my teacher ! she's patient with me (a beginner who does not always have time to practice regularly) and is super helpful with giving me tips and advice on how to be better. Linda can also play ANY song and has helped me learn tons of my favorites. We're working on Annie's Song right now and Linda has helped me not only understand how to play the notes but why we play them a certain way (heck yeah music theory !)

Linda is great. I left with a big smile on my face!

Linda is awesome. After 3 lessons I'm getting pretty good at a couple of basic rolls and have a song to work on. She is patient and knowledgeable, and has helped me get basic technique going. So far so good.

I have taught academic writing to grade school children and Ph.D. candidates, so I can adapt my methods and materials to suit whatever your needs may be.

I have experience teaching students from a number of language backgrounds, and an MA in TESOL, so non-native speakers of English are encouraged to reach out.

I look forward to helping you express yourself effectively in writing!

IF A TIME IS NOT LISTED AS AVAILABLE, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE. I CAN PROBABLY ACCOMMODATE YOU :)

My son’s lessons with Sara have been awesome! He’s very shy and reserved but she has made him feel comfortable. I have no idea what she said to him during their first interaction but it made him more confident in his work. My son has mentioned that she’s pleasant to work with. He also wanted me to mention that she challenges him and helps him think. Thank you Sara!

Sara is an excellent teacher!! She is really helping my daughter improve her grammar and writing skills.

Sara is by far one of the best teachers we have had for our son. She is knowledgeable and worked with us to meet the specific needs of our son. Our son has had a great learning time with her so far. She's phenomenal!

Many of us struggle to write the first sentence of an assignment. Then we waste time attempting to achieve a certain word limit before a due date, quite often using filler words and repetition to do so.

I am here to transform the way you approach writing, moving from a mundane experience to a meaningful one. In our sessions, we may explore some of the following themes:
-How to build robust, well-supported paragraphs
-How to craft a killer thesis statement
-How to connect ideas logically (moving beyond empty words or phrases)
-How to claim your audience's attention from the first sentence
-How to find and integrate the best sources into your paper
-How to vary vocabulary and sentence structure so that your voice shines through
-How to clean up grammar errors

Beyond guiding you through writing essays and paragraphs, I can assist you with a whole smorgasbord of communication needs (e.g., resumes, cover letters, articles, theses/dissertations, creative writing, books, grammar, ESL, ...

"Wow! Very thorough and caring professional. Interested in evaluating where the individual's writing skills are; what are their goals; and how to develop a lesson plan based on the age and school district requirements. On our second lesson, my 13 y/o daughter's sentence structure has already noticibly improved! Can't wait to see how much more she improves!
Would recommend without hesitation!"
