About Lynne

I am patient and love working with kids, teens or anyone who wants to learn. I am good at explaining and easily develop a rapport with my students. I find that a sense of humor in tutoring is invaluable at making learning more enjoyable. I am creative and adjust my teaching methods to your student’s learning style. I am organized, reliable and prompt and look forward to that “aha” moment when the light of understanding shines in my students’ eyes. My students’ increased confidence following such moments is very gratifying.

I have a degree in Math and Computer Science from UCLA. My work experience includes over 10 years at Xerox, where I excelled in programming and design. I also worked on the Unix kernel at Citicorp. Of course, my past work experience includes tutoring, with the caveat that my tutoring prior to WyzAnt has been as a volunteer, so you can tell I really enjoy it.

I have a passion for youth and math – call me and let’s talk about how I can help you!

"Great Tutor, Highly Recommend"

"Good at working with various situations"

Lynne replied on 5/15/2015

I was able to get Jennifer's daughter to respond better when I revised some of her Math problems to involve things she is interested in, like baking and Pokemon, and using the actual names of her friends in word problems. I also traded roles with her sometimes, asking her to be the teacher while I was the student with many, many questions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

CBEST

The CBEST tests abilities in reading, writing and math. I am approved by WyzAnt to tutor in all these subjects, as well as proofreading. I enjoy math the most and have tutored WyzAnt students in Algebra 1 and 2, as well as Geometry. I am most interested in helping students with the math portion of the CBEST. I am a graduate of UCLA, love to read and am qualified to tutor in vocabulary and spelling. Because of my ability to write, I am currently the grant writer for a local non-profit.

Proofreading

I have helped a student with his high school English essays for 4 years. I am very familiar with the most common errors students make when writing papers. When proofreading a paper, I look for agreement between subject and verb, consistent voice, correct spelling and the misuse of apostrophes. The errors sound so wrong, it's as though they jump out at me, clamoring for immediate attention.
