About Lynn

I am trained and licensed by the State of Illinois to teach elementary and middle school with endorsements in ESL, language arts, science and social studies, and have taught kindergarten to fifth grade in Chicago Public Schools.

I also have experience teaching and tutoring adults, and currently teach adult ESL weekday mornings at City Colleges of Chicago. I enjoy teaching and tutoring immensely and strive to make lessons fun and effective. The more engaging a lesson is, the more likely new skills and knowledge will be retained. As a tutor, I am very flexible and will first make sure I understand what your goals are and how you learn best, and plan tutoring lessons accordingly.

I have a B.A. in English Language and Literature from the University of Michigan. I also have a post-baccalaureate certificate in Elementary Education from Northeastern Illinois University and am now working toward a M.A. in Teaching English as a Second Language there. Before transitioning into a teaching career, I was an editor for seven years at a large publishing company, so I can also help students who want to focus on improving their writing.

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.
