Lynn's Bio

A member of the National Art Honors Society, Lynn holds a BA from Weinberg School of Arts & Sciences at Northwestern University in art theory and practice. She is a positive tutor who enjoys cultivating meaningful connections with others and always strives to balance working hard with having fun. Since college, Lynn has primarily worked in graphic design and web development. Currently, she's a freelance web developer and online marketer, as well as a certified yoga teacher.

Lynn discovered her love for teaching early in high school when she worked as a teaching assistant for a children's painting class. Ever since that experience, she's remained in the field of mentorship and has been regularly tutoring in an academic capacity since 2013. She's worked with the organization School on Wheels, which matches tutors with students experiencing homelessness. Time and again, her students saw improvements in their grades and significantly improved their reading and comprehension abilities.

Lynn's teaching style is relaxed but firm. "I prioritize making a personal connection with my students because I believe that students learn the best when they trust their teacher," Lynn says. "I like to do a short check-in with my students before each lesson, so they have a chance to share with me anything that they'd like to discuss (whether it is academic or personal). This helps to ensure that the student feels that their needs are being heard and addressed."

Acknowledging that every student is unique and learns differently, Lynn tutors with an adaptive approach. "Some students respond better to verbal explanations, while other students' minds are better activated by visuals," she explains, going on to consider that she also finds that combining different teaching methods is an effective way to illustrate concepts and ideas to students.

In high school, Lynn collaborated with the yearbook committee, interned for a local magazine, and was the editor-in-chief of the student newspaper. During her time as an undergraduate, she was the president of a student organization that not only brought indie bands to her campus but produced big-budget music videos.

Outside of work, Lynn enjoys practicing yoga and making art. Lynn once raised a family of rabbits. Their names were Marshmallow, Zach, Tips, Woodstock, and Melissa.
