Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I am located in the Pasadena area of Los Angeles, CA, offering remote video-conferencing here locally and nationwide. I taught in the classroom for the Alhambra Unified School District for 17 years, so my extensive experience and a current California State Teaching Credential make me highly qualified to help students efficiently and enjoyably reach their educational goals. It is my intent and joy to help students gain mastery and confidence with subjects they may struggle with. My main areas of expertise are grades 6-12 in Reading, Writing and Math starting at $40/hr. - high school math starts at $45.00/hr, with Algebra II, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus at $50/hr. I'm offering a 5% discount for paying monthly in advance for 1x/week sessions, and discounted rates are available for siblings and/or multiple weekly sessions scheduled.

My son was struggling with English. Linda got him excited about the subject and also more confident in his abilities. He is doing much better in class as well.

Linda provided a tutoring session for my daughter, who is in Algebra 1. Linda requested copies of homework and class assignments beforehand, so she could prepare adequately. The lesson was great- my daughter learned a lot about the steps needed to complete inequalities. Linda was patient and explained concepts well. We will definitely ask for her help again in the future!

Thank you Vicki! Your daughter had a solid handle on her material but just needed some guidance with the details that come up when solving equations in Algebra I. It was my pleasure to help your daughter - great job! - and work with you both.

Linda is a terrific tutor. Flexible, engaging and knows her stuff. We had a complicated situation she designed a way to get my sons math needs met. I appreciate her.

It's great to work with your bright son! Many kids were bumped off of their math progress due to the pandemic and the challenge of working with on-line only math instruction that could be difficult to follow. We're spending the summer catching back up and H. is progressing nicely. Great job so far!

It was a my pleasure to assist your son Gabriel with his challenging Algebra II math class that was more like trigonometry and precalculus combined! Gabriel had a very ambitious math teacher and he benefited from one-on-one instruction so concepts could be re-explained clearly and he could ask questions without feeling shy in front of his peers in the classroom. Nice work!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My rates are a great value for the extensive teaching experience I bring to my tutoring, and if materials are needed those are included as well. I offer discounted pricing for multiple sessions per week and for siblings. Group pricing is available for small groups involving several students in one session.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I will speak with the new customer over the phone first to answer questions and learn about the customer's child's goals, challenges, concerns, and any background information necessary. I am happy to consult with the customer at no charge prior to a scheduled session.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have held a certified State of California teaching credential since 2005. I received my education training at California State University, Los Angeles from 2001-2004, and honed my teaching craft by teaching in the classroom for the next 17 years.
