About Lynne

Writing is one of the most profound ways we use to describe ourselves, our experiences and the world around us. To effectively communicate, it is important to know how to organize your thoughts and put those thoughts to paper. I am a published author of over 30 articles in parenting, education and religious magazines. In addition, I have written two books and been a contributing author to two others. I was a contributing author to corporate publications for my previous employer, a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary (think Warren Buffet!) I also maintain a blog and website.

I have the experience and understanding to help you organize your ideas and write them down so they will speak to your audience clearly and succinctly. I have a degree in Elementary Education but I have worked with high school, college and adult writers. My tutoring style is collaborative. I believe one of the best tools for a writer is to toss around ideas, formulate a plan, create an outline, and start writing. We can work on grammar, spelling, vocabulary, and style as we progress.

I minored in history and enjoy helping students see the bigger picture beyond learning facts and dates and statistics.

I have a 3 year professional A.A. degree in Christian Education and a B.A. degree in Elementary Education.

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.

American History

I have a minor in history from two colleges and have spent the last 20 years studying history in relation to genealogical research. I believe it is important for the student not only to learn the basic facts and dates but to put historical events into perspective. This enables them to remember specifics more readily.

Bible Studies

I received a 3 year professional A.A. degree from Southeastern Bible College in Birmingham, Alabama. Much of my course of study included Bible work and theology. I am also a published writer in several Christian publications.

Proofreading

As a published writer, it is important to know spelling and grammar rules. I have proofread many technical and general articles for corporate publications as well as information posted to the corporate library website. I have proofread papers for individuals in college offering corrections and suggestions.

Reading

I have a degree in Elementary Education which concentrated heavily on reading and its importance to student success. I believe students learn to enjoy reading when it is applicable to their interests. I would encourage the student to find material on topics which they enjoy and would work to strengthen reading skills using these materials.

Religion

I received a 3 year professional A.A. degree in Christian Education from Southeastern Bible College in Birmingham, Alabama. Much of my course of study involved Bible work, theology and study of other religions. I had to write a theological thesis in order to receive my degree.

Vocabulary

I have a degree in Elementary Education. I am also a published writer and rely heavily on using correct vocabulary words in presenting my ideas. I would encourage students to learn new words and use those words in sentences. In addition, I believe using a thesaurus would help broaden a student's vocabulary.

World History

I have a minor in history from two colleges which I pursued because of a deep love of the origins of societies and cultures. My A.A. degree concentrated more on religious, church and world history while my B.A. degree covered American History, World History, Soviet History and history of the Middle East. I would help students learn not only basic facts but how events helped to shape the political, economical and social fabric of countries.

Writing

I am a published writer of numerous articles in Christian magazines. I was a contributing author to two devotional books as well as author of two other books. In my previous employment, I wrote for corporate publications as well as maintained the library website. I have a blog I contribute to.
