About Lynnette

I grew up in the Bay Area recently graduated with a BS in Biology and Psychology at the University of the Pacific as part as the honors program. I am an aspiring pre-med student and am always looking for opportunities to help others.

In high school, I was a peer tutor for my Economy and Government class. I worked with students outside of class to provide homework assistance and to clarify any of the course material. The program was dedicated to helping students raise their test averages. I also worked as a tutor my first year at Pacific for the Pacific's Migrant Education program. The program hires tutors/mentors to work at elementary schools in the Stockton Unified School District and we planned lesson activities and provided extra aid for migrant families. We hosted back to school nights and parent information nights. There were also monthly training sessions held by the SUSD staff on how to become more effective tutors. I also worked at UOP's Center for Community Involvement as an individual tutor. We connected with students within the SUSD district to provide one-on-one tutoring services. In addition, I always help explain homework to my little brothers and sisters whenever they are struggling. All of my tutoring experiences has taught me how to work with students and offer a welcoming environment so that they are not afraid to ask for help. I have learned to better connect with tutees and I am grateful that I have received so many chances to share my passion of helping others.

I have completed all math courses up to Calculus BC and I also took the AP test for Calc AB and BC. This includes middle school math, precalculus, geometry, and trigonometry. In high school, I was on the honor course for my math classes and thus can provide adequate help in the subject. I have hundreds of hours tutoring high school and college level math.

I love being a part of the community of educators. I am flexible in my hours and I am extremely eager to share my knowledge. I always make sure to explain difficult concepts through multiple perspective and I try my best to understand a student's learning capabilities. I believe that I am a qualified tutor and I know that I can make a difference if given the opportunity to help.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
