About Lynne

If you need help with writing, English grammar and all that goes into making you a standout in your classes then I am the tutor you want to know. My specialty is grammar sentence structure and writing for effect. I have many years of experience helping students put their best English face forward.
I taught Junior High Language Arts/Speech and Drama for 20+ years and coached High School Speech Team for the same time frame. At the last high school where I worked I taught Freshman English/Study Skills/Speech/Theatre Arts and ACT Prep Reading and English. I also tutored Reading Comprehension in a one-on-one program for students who were not reading at grade level.

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.
