About Lynn

I have tutored for a number of years; taught ESL, TESOL overseas; taught beginning piano and violin; and have retired after 25 plus years teaching social studies for the last twenty and AP European History for more than ten years. I have taught geography at a community college and am a reader for the AP course. I have recently retired from the public schools. I can speak Arabic, lived in Germany, play tennis and soccer.

I am very thorough, conscientious, reliable and enjoy getting results, working toward a goal,and individualizing instruction. If the goal is to pass a class, we need to follow the requirements of the class as closely as possible and study efficiently. There are many way to study inefficiently. I enjoy giving the most and best instruction possible. I have taught people of all backgrounds from infant to adult and of all ethnic backgrounds and educational abilities or challenges. A tutoring experience with myself will be fitted to your needs and individual situation and to achieving results.

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.

ACT English

I have tutored students for the ACT for many years. As a teacher, I taught ACT test-taking skills for twenty years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught 1st, 5th,and 6th grade. I have tutored students in elementary school. I have especially worked with students in the areas of reading and writing English.

ESL/ESOL
