I have a keen understanding of the rules and details of English grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, syntax, and the fine points of good writing. I currently provide homework help to students in grades K-8, but have tutored high school and college students as well.
I am patient, friendly, and a good listener, which means that I teach each student according to his or her own needs and learning style.

About Linda
*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an elec
tronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I can also teach a bit of old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
English and Reading: I am highly qualified, to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

I do not have lessons prepared in grammar though I can certainly prepare them. I usually help students with proofreading.

I proofread papers based on form and content with the following criteria in mind. For content, I look at the macro issues at work: validity, cogency, avoidance of fallacious reasoning, and soundness. (Some style manuals (e.g., The Chicago Manual of Style 15th ed) refer to this as 'developmental editing'.) I try to return papers with expansive explanations of argument quality in terms of formal and informal inferential structures and lack thereof. I may, for example, point out a false dilemma, an affirmation of the consequent, a straw man, etc and suggest an alternative (e.g., modus ponens in the case of an affirmation of the consequent, a qualified dilemma in place of a false one). Returned papers reflect how soundness and cogency unfold only after claims fall into an intelligible form organized “so as to be a composition neither headless nor footless, ...

With 7 years of experience as a certified K-6 teacher, I am dedicated and committed to optimizing student success, academically and socially, in one-to-one settings. Using interest-based writing material and student tools, I can support your child's development with ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, conventions, presentation, and other English language skills.

Resume, references, and student testimonials are available upon request.

About Yoonnie
As a certified Pennsylvanian K-6 teacher, I am dedicated and committed to optimizing student success, academically and socially, in one-to-one settings. Hailing from The Sunshine State, I have obtained both a Bachelor's and Master's degree of Education from The University of Florida. Within two months of completing my Master’s internship in 2011, I was hired as a full-time 4th grade reading and math intervention teacher. Following that, I moved to New York City and became a homeroom teacher to a class of 4th grade English Language Learners and three classes of higher-ability 5th graders in a high-needs public school in the Bronx. With a desire to expand my reach to an even more diverse population, I moved to Abu Dhabi and taught students from 15 different nationalities at an international English-medium private school for these past 2 yea
rs. As a result, I possess a wealth of knowledge and experience in teaching and mentoring children from a variety of cultural and SES backgrounds, including ESOL, underprivileged, urban, and suburban.

As I strive to ensure that all students receive an excellent education, I believe that my skills would not only be able to meet your child’s needs, but also cultivate a happy, lifelong learner. My strength lies in connecting with students and using that to motivate and challenge them with personalized, interest-based and innovative teaching methods. I also have a proven track record of helping students reach and exceed expected growth on standardized tests. One of my favorite things about teaching is getting to the “lightbulb” moment where the concept clicks with the student and he/she is able to understand something that was confusing just a moment ago. I would love the opportunity to support your child in improving their confidence, social skills, foundational reading, comprehension, vocabulary development, writing, and other English language skills, along with developing their aptitude in math, science, and social studies.

Resume, references, and student testimonials are available upon request.
