Hi

My name is Lynne and I am a very experienced and dedicated tutor. I have taught many students of all ages and of all levels in Canada, Mexico and in the United States.

I have excellent credentials. I have a BA in psychology and history from the University of Toronto and an MA in Urban Studies and US and African American History from Florida State University. I also have a Level 6 TOESL--Teaching English as a Second Language--Certificate from Language Link, an international organization affiliated with Cambridge University.

I am an experienced literacy, English and Spanish tutor. I am also a published author who has written books about American history. Each lesson will be designed according to your specific interests and needs. Remember it is your lesson and the entire time will be dedicated to you!

I love teaching students who are motivated and who have an interest in improving the ability to communicate. As you know, communication is very important to tell people things about yourself, your ideas, and your dreams.

If you are having problems with expressing your ideas for a school essay or assignment, I can help with that too. We can work together to not only improve your grades but also to improve your skills and understanding.

If you are a professional, I can help you with writing up your experiments, composing a professional letter, or editing and proofreading your reports and presentations.

My goal is to ensure that you meet your goals. A little help goes a long way.

I am ready to start as soon as you are ready.

ESL/ESOL

My name is Lynne and have had the wonderful experience of teaching ESL for many years, in Canada, the US, and Mexico. I have taught in a resource center which catered to the Latino community in Toronto. I also taught Latinos in Birmingham, Alabama, for the Catholic Archdiocese. In addition, I taught ESL to Asian students at a private school in Toronto called the Language Exchange. Basically all the students were temporary visa students who were either learning or improving their English before returning to their home country. Finally, I ran my own business offering services such as ESL classes, job interview skills, essay writing and other services related to language skills. I easily establish rapport with the students and together we find the best strategy to improve their English skills.
Proofreading,

Proofreading

I am a professional proofreader and editor. I worked for an academic publisher in the past and now I work independently. I have a keen eye and extensive knowledge about how best to organize and present material. A well written essay with spelling and grammatical errors will not receive an A. The errors are glaring examples that the student did not take the time to review the essay before submitting it. Do not fall into this trap. Take the extra time and get the A you deserve.

Speech

I have worked with students who have strong accents for many years. Although their English is understandable and correct, students often feel that their strong accents hinder effective communication. I use exercises that require the students to repeat lists of words that will help them hear the subtle differences in pronunciation. We also use materials that require students to read passages that contain problematic words. Students also will observe my mouth while listening to me speak. This helps them understand the mechanics of how to form words in a way that will elicit the correct pronunciation. I have worked in the field for many years.

Flexible, Friendly, Fun

Lynne is flexible with your schedule and very friendly. She's fun and interactive with lessons. Her background with culture combined with her many years of teaching History, gives a considerable edge when it comes to her tutoring. It's an edge that you want. She can gauge your level of understanding the Spanish language and then ascertain what steps to take next to improve your skills. She's not pushy and is very kind.

James, 1 lesson with Lynne

Effective and patient tutor

I had two writing classes with Lynne. She helped me on how to tackle the writing portion for CBEST test. During the tutoring, She taught me how to organize an idea before writing. Also, she focused more attentions on my usage and some grammar errors since English is my second language. She was definitely an effective tutor. With her help, I felt much better about writing and have better ideas of where I need to work on.

JINGPEI, 3 lessons with Lynne
