I have been tutoring since I was in high school in the 1960s. I tutored throughout college. In my 35 years of public and private school teaching, I worked individually with my students before, during and after school. It was always my favorite part of teaching. I have recently retired and would like to help you understand math and/or science so that you can learn to love it as much as I do.
With my decades of experience, I am very good at making students feel comfortable with me. Because of this, I can easily find out what they do and don't understand. From this knowledge, I can build on their strengths so that they come to completely understand that which was difficult before.
I truly enjoy working with people of all ages and helping them to become confident in their ability to understand math and science.
My mother was a professional seamstress. Therefore, I grew up wearing handmade clothing and learned to design and make my own. I have made wedding dresses, suits, dresses, pants, shirts, underpants, bathing suits, children's clothing, furniture covers, drapes, curtains, and many other household items, including reupholstering furniture.
I have not desired to make a living by sewing, but my house and my children's houses are filled with homemade items.
I have been an American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructor and Lifeguard Instructor for several decades. I have taught swimming and lifeguarding for recreation departments, high school and private lessons.
For the swimming lessons, I have worked with people of all ages, from 6 months to 84 years old. I have taught not only the basics of swimming, but also coached teams and triathletes who wanted to strengthen the swim portion of their races.
I love the water, am very comfortable in the water, and love to share my skills with others. The joy on a person's face when they first float on their back is indescribable.
I have found that for younger children, making them feel at ease in the water comes first. Then the skills can be worked on. Generally, spending a short time on several different skills in a session plants the seeds of those skills in a student's mind. By the next session, I find that they have improved markedly, even if they haven't been in the water in between sessions. Those seeds grow, even without water!
For older students, it is often necessary to overcome fear that they may not even be conscious of. I have some simple breathing exercises that usually tackle those fears. Runners also have difficulty with the breathing because they need to do it "backwards" in the water; that is, in the mouth and out the nose (and mouth).
The Best — Lynne is the most respectful, compassionate and understanding teacher I have met. She understands the student as well as the material. ...
