About Lyn

I have years of experience working with children and teens in my professional capacity as an Occupational Therapy Assistant. Many children I work with need assistance developing visual skills to be successful with reading and writing. As a therapist I have developed skills to assist students improve their visual tracking and focus to be successful readers. In order to access the success of the therapy I must assist the student with learning to read and write.
I also have years of experience working with teens in scouting. I communicate well with this age group. I am a reading counselor for the reading merit badge. Through scouting and professional work I have many hours of youth protection training. Through my professional and scouting experience I have developed skills to communicate, teach and provide students with means to access and use their skills and resources available to them to the best of their ability.

I am an avid reader and can assist youth to discover their literary interests and to assist them with locating material in written form that will peak their interest. Reading what interests a person prompts focus and attention, which in turn increases active participation and ultimately improves a students ability to read.

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.

ADHD

As an Occupational Therapy Assistant I have experience working with many ADD/ADHD youth which has given me insight in determining the variety of learning methods of these student. Material is than presented to the student in the manner it is best understood and learned. This tailored teaching manner fosters interest and success, instead of frustration and failure.

Dyslexia

My professional knowledge as an Occupational Therapy Assistant in treating visual motor and visual perceptual issues will benefit tutoring success for those students struggling with Dyslexia. I have years of experience assisting elementary students with improving their visual abilities and to learn strategies to compensate for visual difficulties.

Handwriting

As an Occupational Therapy Assistant I frequently provide therapy to students who have difficulty with handwriting. Handwriting issues can be caused by a variety of reasons. In my career I have learned and developed many techniques to assist students with visual issues and hand strength that are the most common reasons for poor handwriting.

Phonics

As an Occupational Therapy Assistant I provide therapy in the elementary setting. Students learning to write must first learn the alphabet. In my professional career and as a parent I have learned and developed techniques to assist students with visual issues. These students are often auditory learners and as such need to recognize not only the written form of letters but also the phonetic sound of letters for reading and writing to make sense.

Special Needs

As an Occupational Therapy Assistant in the educational system I work with a variety of students with physical, intellectual and emotional challenges. Each session is tailored to the needs of the student, focusing on skills improvement and strategy learning to compensate for abilities that may always pose a challenge. My training and experience will be beneficial to successful learning for students with special needs.
