NOW ACCEPTING ENROLLMENT FOR FALL QUARTER/SEMESTER/2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR
Hello everyone and welcome to Miss Lando’s Math Tutoring!
If you’re having difficulty with any of your math classes, or if you wish to raise your grade, give me a call. If you’re under 18, ask your parents to give me a call first--just to make sure that my guidelines and teaching philosophy meet with their approval. After that, we can all meet, and the student--regardless of age--has the final say as to whether we will begin working together.
I specialize in basic math through second semester (college) or second year (high school) calculus, which include those classes in between such as geometry, trigonometry—both elementary and analytic, pre-calculus and finite math--school-ages to adults. And I’ve also worked with adult students who may need to pass math tests or entrance exams for college, graduate school, or in a skilled trade or profession.
I incorporate study skills and test preparation into my work, which can make all the difference for improving comprehension and performance.
I tutor locally from Redwood Shores to Burlingame/Millbrae, but can go a little further in either direction, depending on scheduling and freeway access.
And while mathematics may not be the thing that you’re in love with, if you’re a student who is motivated to do well (despite being discouraged in the past), if you’re willing to apply your excellent study skills or to learn new study skills and test preparation that can improve your math performance, then I would love to hear from you.

As an educator with over twenty years teaching and administrative experience, I have had the privilege of working with students and families in the Bay Area in both the performing arts and academics.
During that time, I have continued my academic education, but the best education I've ever received has come from the students themselves. Over the years, I've been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with individuals from diverse age groups (preschoolers to senior citizens), diverse learning styles/differences, and distinct cultures. It is from these students and their families that I have been able to form concepts about the ways in which individuals process information and perform to their potential, and I continually use and refine my techniques in order to improve my practice and to help students realize that they can do math, pass whichever math course they are required to take, and even excel in their math classes.
Linda Lando was a gift to our entire family. She was an advocate for our daughter, a task master, a quality communicator with both parents and child, and an inspired teacher. To receive a weekly report that communicated the progress as well as the nuances of motivation, was extraordinarily helpful. Linda truly made a difference to our daughter's academic work.
Linda is a highly organized teacher, one with clear expectations and achievable objectives. Her quick wit and cheerful personality keep the atmosphere light, but she always maintains a clear purpose in the lesson at hand.
Linda Lando is an educator with a rich and varied background, which she utilizes to make lesson plans fun and relevant. She truly loves her students. Her experience, organization, and communication skills are assets toward students' progress.
I have found Linda Lando to be an exceptional instructor. She is able to conduct the class in a very professional but not intimidating manner, making it most enjoyable. She is also able to gear the class to various levels of ability and always offers a great deal of help.
Linda is a gifted teacher. Technically, she conveys the information very effectively; personality-wise--always enthusiastic, positive, encouraging. It is very easy to learn from her and to feel a sense of accomplishment.
Thank you for your help over these past years. You have instilled in me a love of math!
Thank you for teaching me more about math. Out of all my tutors, you have helped me to learn the most.
