This is how 35 referees rated Linda:
I strive to identify my student's needs and adjust my teaching methods to align with those needs. I allow my students to reach conclusions on their own, serving primarily as a guide who can answer questions and help. I can help my students build solid language skills, whether they could benefit from practicing conversational skills or learn gender classifications.
With more than 40 years of teaching experience under my belt, I have worked with students of all ages and skill levels in Portuguese, English, and ESL. I have a bachelor's in English and a certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language from the University of California at Los Angeles.
My teaching style centers the student in every aspect of our study sessions. I work to keep a safe environment that can allow my students the freedom to explore, question, and grow. From the start, I try to gauge my student's grasp of the material, whether I am serving as a Portuguese tutor or offering support elsewhere.
