About Lindsey

I am currently working as a teacher at Mary McDowell Friends School, while also tutoring after school in reading, writing, mathematics, test prep and executive functioning. Prior to Mary McDowell, I was a classroom teacher in a public elementary classroom in Manhattan, in both general education and gifted and talented settings. I discovered my passion when working with students individually and building upon their strengths and working through their learning challenges. 

I have a Master's degree in Special Education and General Education from the Bank Street Graduate School of Education and an undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California (USC). My experiences in the areas of literacy and math, as well as executive functioning and test prep, combined with my intensive training in Orton-Gillingham and Wilson Fundations, provide a unique skill set to enhance learning for all children. I understand the importance of looking at each child as an individual and developing instruction based upon their strengths and passions.

I am a resident of the Boerum Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn. I live with my husband and my goldendoodle, Bodie Blue. I am a Boston native and a loyal Boston sports fan.

Subject Area Tutoring & Enrichment

I have the experience and skills necessary to help your child with any subject in which they need support or could use an additional challenge. I will develop lessons tailored to your child's individual needs in the areas of mathematics, reading, writing, science, social studies and more. I am Orton-Gillingham trained and special education certified.

Test Preparation

I will help your child build confidence and prepare for any upcoming tests including NYC Gifted & Talented (OLSAT + NNAT2), ELA & Math NYS tests. I not only review practice tests but also help students develop test-taking skills.

Executive Functioning

I specialize in supporting children with their executive functioning skills. These skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and multi-task. Children are not born with these skills—they are born with the potential to develop them.

I help teach students how to organize, plan, manage time, maintain focus, self-assess, and study efficiently.


Our 3rd grade son has an IEP and significant attentional issues and processing delays.  We enlisted Lindsey’s help to tutor him in ELA which was recently becoming more challenging for him.  Lindsey quickly built rapport with him, assessed his reading level and started working with him on an Orton-Gillingham multi-sensory program. Within the first couple of months, he was successfully using phonics tools to approach new words and was starting to confidently spell words he previously would not have attempted. Our son looks forward to his sessions with Lindsey even though he acknowledges that she makes him work hard.

We are very happy with Lindsey’s work and look forward to continue working with her. I would recommend her without reservation and think she is uniquely skilled to work with children with special needs.
