About Lynn

Hello, I'm Lynn! I am currently teaching ESL at two schools in northern Delaware: McCullough Middle School, and Eisenberg Elementary School. During the summer, I also teach and tutor English to international students who are enrolled at the University of Delaware's English Language Institute. I am experienced in teaching all students, from ages five to adult learners. I also have experience tutoring in English to Chinese students via video.

Teaching is a second career for me, and I have been doing it for 5 years. Before that, I was a writer and editor for many publications in New York City, and I even got to interview Conan O'Brien once! I have very strong writing and editing skills, and love to share my passion for writing and vocabulary with students. Teaching was a dream of mine, so I went back to school at the University of Delaware and got a Master's in Teaching English as a Second Language.

My teaching philosophy centers on the idea that learning should be focused on the students' needs, and giving them the resources and tools they need to be successful. Learning is a collaborative process between students and their teacher; I often find that I learn just as much from my students as they learn from me. Their successes--and even failures--inform my teaching practice and show me what I can improve on.

Fun Facts About Me: I have 7 brothers! I love animals; I have a dog and two cats, and saved two baby squirrels who had fallen out of a tree.

I have also given presentations at several national and international ESL conferences on building community with parents and students, and also teaching students who have ADD or ADHD. I love to research and learn new teaching practices, and interact and share my ideas with other educators.

I would love to speak to you about how I can help you or your child(ren) succeed in the classroom!
