Customized tutoring designed to fit your child’s needs
I offer tutoring in the following areas:
For core subjects, I customize sessions following the student’s school curriculum instead of offering a predetermined program that may not relate to current classwork. Parents and students find this approach offers immediate results and enhances self-esteem which is so important for academic success.
I typically spend the first 5-10 minutes of each session organizing and checking the student’s binders, school planner and online homework resource, such as School Loop or Canvas. Whether the student is using a tangible planner or a technology-driven tool, like Google Calendar, I make sure that he or she is on track. The remainder of the session is devoted to current coursework. The student and I prioritize according to upcoming tests and projects. If the student does not have any pressing homework assignments, I generate my own curriculum designed to address the areas in which the student needs additional academic support.
Lindsay creates a safe and healthy environment where a student can feel related and ready to learn. She works with the classroom teacher to better understand each student’s needs and interests which she uses to help develop lessons. Because many of her students have not only academic problems but emotional issues as well, Lindsay works very hard building self-esteem. Her goal for each student is to generate an enthusiasm for learning while re-establishing confidence in one’s self, both in and out of the classroom.
