About Hilary-Lynn

My experience tutoring began while I was a student at Purdue University. I volunteered with the International Center on campus to help foreign exchange students with their English skills. I also set up and ran a homework club at a local middle school, where we went and helped junior high students with Math and English. Before my senior year, I spent a summer in Russia teaching English.

In graduate school, I started teaching college ESL courses. It was a great experience learning to teach to students from many different cultural backgrounds! Having a background in linguistics, I love helping English language learners understand the mechanics behind what is happening. Plain rules are boring - it's exciting and fun to learn about how and why language works!

I hold an M.A. in Applied Linguistics/TESOL as well as TEFL certification. I have 7 years experience with teaching and tutoring ESL/EFL.

I absolutely loved my time in college. I successfully completed two majors in 4 years while having active leadership in multiple clubs and maintaining a high GPA, and receiving admissions offers from several graduate schools. Now on the other side, I would love to help students navigate their own college journeys.

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.

Ballroom Dancing

I couldn't find a category for swing dancing, but I have several years experience in competing and teaching lindy hop. I've taught workshops at Indiana University, Ball State University, Purdue University, and Naptown Stomp (Indianapolis). I hold titles from events such as SwingIN, Southern Swing Challenge, Rocktober, and Whistle Stop.

College Counseling

I completed two majors in four years at Purdue all while holding leadership positions in multiple clubs, maintaining a high GPA, and receive admissions offers from graduate schools.

I have helped other students in their college and graduate school applications as well as offering advice and support for college life. This is an exciting time, but it also can be stressful and difficult. I am happy to help wherever possible.

ESL/ESOL

M.A. Applied Linguistics/TESOL from Indiana University

Phonics

Holding an M.A. in Applied Linguistics, I have studied phonology very extensively. I have also taught phonics to my younger siblings and hold interest in child language acquisition.

Public Speaking

I hold a B.A. in Communication from Purdue. During my senior year, I completed an Advanced Presentational Speaking course with an A. I have enjoyed making several presentations throughout graduate school, including a professional presentation at the Indiana state TESOL conference.

Violin

I studied violin for 11 years, taking weekly privates, attending summer camps, and playing in the Indianapolis Youth Orchestra. In high school, I built a small studio of four students and played in weddings. I took a short break because of graduate school, but now I'm returning to play and teach classical violin.
