About Lyn

Hi, my name is Lyn. I'm an Educator at the Connecticut Science Center and some of my passions include writing and earth science/geology. I really enjoy helping learners of all ages improve their writing and science skills. I have edited book projects and am also happy to sit alongside a student struggling to write a concise, well-structured essay.

I have tutored with Hartford Youth Scholars Foundation (HYSF) and have a BA from Amherst College (2006) in geology.

I'm open to a wide age-range of students, so long as they are willing! I am very patient and enjoy working with you or your child at their pace. My focus is to move you toward your goals in a way that is fun and enjoyable!

Please don't hesitate to contact me for any variety of tutoring needs including test prep, personal writing projects, struggling science students... I'd love to answer any questions you have.

Best Regards,

Lyn

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.

Elementary Math

I am proficient in basic math.

English

Those who know me attest to the fact that I have a natural gifting in English - both in grammar and writing. This is one of my favorite subjects to tutor. I would love to help you improve writing or master basic grammar.

Geology

My undergraduate major was in geology. I completed a senior thesis and love the subject!

Grammar

I have an eye for grammar and punctuation. I am currently editing a book and love to edit or help those who need help with writing or grammar.

Physical Science

General physical science is my concentration area for my MA in education that I am studying right now. I was a geology major in college and enjoy all sciences.

Proofreading

I am currently editing a book and am a great proofreader. I have an eye for grammar and punctuation.

Reading

As a college graduate and MA education student I've had to go through large amounts of reading material. I enjoy helping others with basic reading and comprehension skills.

Vocabulary

I have an extensive vocabulary and enjoy helping others improve theirs!

Writing

As an avid writer, I enjoy crafting anything from creative pieces to scientific reports and essays. I have a good deal of experience helping others with their writing and am a patient teacher.

Currently, I am editing a friend's book, and I have helped others with essays. I wrote an undergraduate thesis in geology, so I am familiar with science writing as well.
