About Lyn

My love of learning drives me to be the best instructor I can be and I truly believe that every child has the ability to learn. As a teacher for the past fourteen years, I am excited to see the growth in my students and challenge them to do more than they thought possible. In addition to teaching, I have been a tutor for over ten years. As an ardent learner myself, graduating Summa Cum Laude upon earning my Master's in Education, I encourage students to take advantage of their education and show them how it pertains to and can be used in every day life.

I specialize in English and Language arts, but aim to provide students with the tools they need to be successful in any subject. I provide assessments, homework, and one-on-one direct instruction to ensure understanding of the subject matter. Students also receive progress reports and these reports are reviewed with both the parent and student. I aspire to keep students focused, inspired, and learning, regardless of the heaviness of the content. I enjoy tutoring because it allows me the opportunity to work my students one-on-one. I also try my best to make my tutoring sessions an enjoyable experience so that students are able to learn as much as possible during each session. We tend to remember and are more successful at the things that we enjoy!



I am well versed in grammar, vocabulary, literature, writing, and test taking skills and strategies. My ability to convey these topics to my students and provide students with the tools to assist their comprehension of the subject matter, makes me a successful English tutor. I have worked with students of various levels, needs, exceptions, etc. and have had a great deal of success in helping those students to attain academic success. I'd like to think I have even converted a few students into English lovers!

Due to my flexible schedule, I only require an hour cancellation notice and try to be available for my students as much as possible. This ensures that I have enough time to cancel my request at the library. I usually tutor students in a reserved "classroom" at the local library as this allows for complete focus on the work at hand with limited distractions. It is a comfortable and convenient location, however, I am happy to travel to another location if that is desired.

I look forward to assisting you and your child with his or her academic needs. Academic success is not only possible, it's just a phone call away.

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 (K-6th)

My master's degree focus was elementary education and my minor early childhood education. I have tutored elementary students in all subjects for the last five years and have assisted both of my children and my grandson who is currently a 3rd grader with their elementary classwork.

I use a variety of workbooks and assessments to help my students gain a stronger understanding of the subjects. I also utilize sites such as Cool Math and Khan Academy to provide additional instruction for students who struggle with specific content.
