About Lyndsey


Bio

Hi my name is Lyndsey and I have been a tutor for over a year now. I was tutoring at the college I was attending before I moved to Michigan. I tutored a wide range of students ranging from new immigrants to adults returning to college. I have helped students with reading comprehension, grammar, academic writing, citations, literary analysis, and creative writing. I saw papers ranging from short personal introductions to philosophical essays. I have had many jobs in my life but I have not...

Hi my name is Lyndsey and I have been a tutor for over a year now. I was tutoring at the college I was attending before I moved to Michigan. I tutored a wide range of students ranging from new immigrants to adults returning to college. I have helped students with reading comprehension, grammar, academic writing, citations, literary analysis, and creative writing. I saw papers ranging from short personal introductions to philosophical essays. I have had many jobs in my life but I have not enjoyed any of them as much as tutoring. I love seeing the moment that a student understands the content and gains confidence in their abilities. I understand that English can be difficult for people, but I hope that I can help students do their best.

While tutoring at a college, many people came to me in order to learn proper citation so that they could avoid plagiarism. I have a good understanding of MLA, APA, and Chicago Turabian Footnotes. I am also prepared to learn other citation styles as needed.

I am still currently a college student and am working towards a degree in English so that I can move on to become a teacher. While my focus is on English, I also enjoy History, Anthropology, Art, and Philosophy. I am not currently taking any steps towards multiple degrees at this moment, but hope to add these subjects to my repertoire in the future. I understand that many may look at my experience and write me off, but I will still work my hardest for those who are willing to work with me.

I believe in the Socratic method when it comes to tutoring and choose to pose questions to help students have a better grasp on concepts and ideas. I will also help students address common mistakes or issues that they are running into. I believe that in order to truly learn what is considered incorrect, one must learn why it is considered incorrect, and I am always willing to explain and give examples so that students can make progress.

Knowledgeable and very patient tutor

My daughter who is Grade 8 needs help for reading a Book (the book chosen by my daughter). Lyndsey helped us by pulling vocabulary / discussion about the characters, titles / theme / plot, etc. based on each chapters. So far we are VERY HAPPY and thanks Wyzant and Miss Lyndsey for this GREAT SERVICE.

Lyndsey was very helpful

She assisted in helping me to create good writing structure and develop ideas, and offered great advice that I'm now using to research and write essays. She is a very good tutor.

Very Proficient English Tutor

Lyndsey was able to communicate the key concepts of my son's assignment in a conversational tone that captivated him. My son has benefited tremendously from the two sessions he has taken with the tutor so far. Lyndsey is pleasant and communicates very well with the student and parents. We will certainly continue working with her.
