Linda A. Lee, Ph.D.

Imagine teenagers combing through the Encyclopedia Britannica to find out how to learn. Sounds like a teacher’s fantasy, doesn’t it? But it was a real Saturday afternoon activity for me and my nerdy friends. And, it was the start of my fascination with the mind, as well as my firm belief that know-how can be learned. The teenage curiosity became a teaching career in the small niche of college reading and learning. Here I found the key: know-how plus motivation is what matters!
