Utah State University (Physics)
Psychology (Graduate Coursework)
Secondary Education (Other)
My degree is in Physics from Utah State University and my 30+ years of occupational background are in secondary education (all tech-students in my algebra classes got A’s with scores of 90% or above), and adult nuclear operator training (adult operators with 7th grade educational level upon completion of course work operated on a 2nd year college level).
Philosophy of training, tutoring, and mentoring: Everyone is highly intelligent and any school subject that is giving them trouble is a lack not on the student’s part but a lack on the part of the educational institution. (Fact: Teachers with a class full of students cannot give the time or attention needed to determine the core informational holes nor learning styles of every student so are incapable of solving those problems and of bringing all students along at a mastery level.) Together, with the tutor, parents and students can make up for any perceived loses and do so in a short time. A tutor’s job is to elevate the operational level of the student to that of the instructor and thus provide true “mastery” of any subject. (AND it feels so good when you really understand it and know how to use it!) “Lights turned on” and “genuine ownership” are the only true objectives of tutoring.
Tutoring is over when the student recognizes that he/she no longer needs the tutor – that is success! (That is the time for parents and students to party! I party then too!)

If I were allowed only one word to explain Lynn, his methods, his approach, interaction, communication and knowledge it would be EXCELLENT! My expectations and hopes for a tutor have been far exceeded. I am confident my child will greatly benefit not only in her subject matter improvements but in her learning processes and expectations for herself and education after tutoring with Lynn! Thank you Wyzant and THANK YOU Lynn!
