"My name is Linda, and I love forming relationships with students and seeing an improvement in homework/test scores as well as in confidence. I am a recent UMass Amherst graduate and have two years of experience (along with certification of level 1 and 2 CRLA tutoring) tutoring biochemistry, physics 1 and 2, general chemistry, and psychology at the college level. In college, I majored in physics and completed a concentration in chemical biology, earning a 3.7 gpa overall. I am highly skilled at calculus, algebra, physics, biology, and speak Italian at home.

My tutoring sessions stress mastery of basic and foundational concepts before moving on to solving complex problems. I believe that learning should be active, and students should enjoy themselves while learning and mastering material. In my sessions, I will put an emphasis on connecting new concepts and information back to previous material, as well as mastering concepts through practice.

I have taken calculus 1, 2 and 3 at the college level.

I have taken college level general chemistry 1 and 2, organic chemistry 1 and 2, advanced physics (general physics, modern physics, quantum mechanics, general relativity, statistical physics), and introductory psychology at the level required for the medical college admissions test (MCAT).

I have used the italian language at home my whole life, and have taken advanced spanish.

I am excited to make learning fun and light, and can be reached 24 hours a day. Tutoring apointments can be cancelled up to 24 hours before the session. Contact me to schedule an apointment or to meet about you/your child's particular needs!

I am currently scheduling summer spots! If you or your child want to keep subjects fresh or get ahead before the incoming schoolyear, let me know! Most likely any time on Tuesdays during summer 2022." less...
