About Lynn

I believe that every student has the potential to succeed and am passionate about helping students reach their full potential. I've tutored students, ranging in age from elementary to adult, in reading, writing, grammar, literature, ACT prep and history. Along with my past experience of working part-time as a paraprofessional in an elementary classroom and as a tutor for a college writing center, I have worked with students both individually and in small groups. I've also been a freelance writer for over 25 years, primarily as a journalist. I have a BA in English and am pursuing my MA in English.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Along with the qualifications listed on my tutor page (BA in English, tutoring and professional writing experience), I educated my children at home for 15 years. I taught from K-12, encompassing beginning reading to elementary math to more advanced English, Writing and History. I have one college graduate and two students that are currently enrolled in college and doing very well. I have also taught many classes through homeschool cooperatives, one in Kankakee and another in Monee, IL.

Literature

I have a BA in English and only need to complete a research class and my thesis to complete my MA in English. I have read, discussed and written about a wide variety of literature. I have taught several literature courses to high school and junior high students in a homeschool cooperative. I assed a CLEP test in American Literature to meet the requirements of my BA in English.

Proofreading

I have been a professional journalist for 25 years. I've proofed my own work and that of others during this time. I have a BA in English and am pursuing my MA in English. I have tutored college students at Governors State University in University Park, IL - helping students to learn to proof their own papers and improve their writing skills. I have worked with students at the GSU Writing Center and through GSU's Writing Fellows program - a program that places a tutor within a particular classroom to work with the same group of students over the semester.

Reading

I have educated four of my five children at home and taught three of these children to read. I have tutored several struggling readers and they have all improved their reading and comprehension skills. Over the past year, I helped Kankakee School District 111 with AIMS Web testing - where I was responsible for testing student fluency in grades K-12.

Writing

I have been writing for 25 years, primarily as a journalist. I have a bachelor in English and am pursuing my MA in English. I have taught writing at a homeschool cooperative, tutored high school students and tutored college students at Governors State University in University Park, IL.

Very Professional Tutor

This tutor has a very pleasant personality and has a firm grasp of her subject matter. Our schedules just did not match up because of school hours and athletic practices and game schedules.
