About Lynn

I really enjoy linguistics and how they affect our English language. One of the biggest influences on English has been and continues to be French. I love the French language and culture and love to share that passion with students of all ages, from young children to adults. I am also passionate about teaching others to express themselves in writing in our own language and how to build a good vocabulary which will help them in school and in their work.

I taught both French and English in Williamson Co. and Nashville, Tennessee, for over 30 years.
I am state-certified in ESL and have really enjoyed sharing our American culture and quirky English language with newcomers to our country.
In addition, I use my skills in teaching English to help students greatly improve their test scores on the English and reading sections of the ACT and SAT.

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

Success on the ACT test in general relies primarily on strategies and being very familiar with the types of questions asked consistently. Time is the enemy on the ACT, and I offer ways to shave off precious seconds and minutes.

For the English test in particular, I show the students the picky grammar questions which will definitely be asked at least once and help them recognize them readily and be secure in the knowledge that the students can answer those confidently.

ACT Reading

We all know that reading comprehension is the key to success in any subject and in any standardized test. ACT Reading is particularly tough, but there are tips and strategies which can certainly increase overall scores through success on the Reading section. Reading is equally important on the English and Science sections of the ACT.

English

My Master's degree is in English Education from Vanderbilt University so I enjoy teaching all aspects of the English language: reading comprehension, vocabulary, composition, and grammar. The English language has a lot of irregularities and can be very confusing, so I try to find concrete rules and formulas which a student can use to be classified as proficient.

ESL/ESOL

I have four courses in ESOL through Tennessee State University and passed the Praxis exam, which enables me to be certified through Metro Nashville Public Schools. I have had experience in teaching an adult ESOL class (intermediate level) through the Williamson County Adult Education program.

French

I have taught levels 1 - 5 AP French for over 30 years.

Grammar

English grammar can be very arbitrary and quirky. Having a strong background in French, which used to be very closely aligned with English in days of old, has really helped me to better understand the origins and current applications of English grammar and to be able to explain it in a simple, easy-to-grasp manner.

ISEE

My Master's degree is in English Education, and I was a classroom teacher for over 30 years.
I have had very good results tutoring the ACT and SAT, and the ISEE test is very similar in concepts and format, only simpler. I am currently tutoring a student in ISEE prep and have gotten very good reviews.

PSAT

The PSAT and the SAT are used to qualify National Merit semi-finalists and finalists. These scholarships can ensure acceptance into top colleges and greatly reduced or free tuition. My MS in English Education, many years of teaching English, and experience in tutoring for both the ACT and the SAT have prepared me to help students make high scores on the Verbal and Writing sections of the PSAT and the SAT. I do not tutor the Math section, however.

TOEFL

I am state certified in ESL and have a lot of experience in teaching English--both to native and non-native speakers of English. I have also tutored students in preparation for TOEFL with successful results.

Writing

I enjoy teaching writing to those who find it scary and overwhelming. I work on all sorts of writing skill, including grammar, structure, thesis, development, organization, etc. Students I've tutored in writing have been successful once they catch on to the system and practice, practice, practice!
