About Lyn


Bio

Hi, my name is Lyn - I am a scientist and a communicator! I'm currently a Masters Student at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. My studies focus on Agriculture, Food and Environment, so I love to tutor in this subject area, as well as writing. My undergraduate degree is in Geology, so Earth Science is always great to work on as well.

Hi, my name is Lyn - I am a scientist and a communicator! I'm currently a Masters Student at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. My studies focus on Agriculture, Food and Environment, so I love to tutor in this subject area, as well as writing. My undergraduate degree is in Geology, so Earth Science is always great to work on as well.

Before moving to Boston, I worked for 4 years as an Educator at the Connecticut Science Center. In Connecticut I also tutored with Hartford Youth Scholars Foundation. I love 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 am also an accomplished Toastmaster, and enjoy helping people hone their communication, public speaking and leadership skills.

I am very patient and will work with you (or your child) at you/their pace. My focus is to move you toward your goals in a way that is fun and helps you to achieve your potential!

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

Kind Regards,

Lyn
