Frequently Asked Questions
What subjects/grades do you teach?
We Teach/Tutor students from Young 5’s through 8th Grade in all subjects. For High School Mathematics we go through Algebra II.
How does online tutoring work?
We meet via the platform ZOOM. High speed internet and a computer with a webcam are needed. There is a “white board” we can make use of if needed and can share documents. If there is specific homework, we ask that you email the link/assignment so we can share the document to make things easier.
Will my child get homework from Lynn’s Learning Center to work on in-between sessions?
The answer to this is variable. It depends on what your child is in need of. If your child needs help keeping up with homework, then probably not unless it is to give them extra practice in a difficult area. We don’t want them to feel overburdened. If it is reading, then I always want students to read each night for at least 20 minutes, or quickly go over some vocabulary. Summertime is another story all together. It is a time to keep up with what they have learned and look ahead to what is to come in the next year. I ask for about 1/2 hour a day in various learning activities + 20 minutes reading. This keeps them accountable and promotes good study habits. I have started a Google Classroom for both my online and office students to keep up with their work.
What are your hours?
My office/online tutoring hours (EST) are:
Monday 9:00-12:30, 1:30-7:30
Tuesday 9:00-12:30, 1:30-7:30
Wednesday 9:00-12:30, 1:30-7:30
Thursday 9:00-12:30, 1:30-4:00
How often do you recommend tutoring for a student?
The answer to this is variable as well. It depends on your child. Are they behind in school? I would say 3 times a week. Does your child need help with one subject only a little as a reassurance then I might say only once a week. It completely depends on your child and their needs. It may be that your child may start out 3 times a week but later may change to 2 times then eventually only once as a check in or boost.
Do you allow drop ins?
If your child has been a student of Lynn’s Learning Center for a while and has “graduated” from tutoring but all of the sudden has a big test that they are anxious about, then yes, they are welcome to drop in for a little help. If it is someone shopping for a tutor and they just want to drop in to see, then no. The relationship between a Tutor and Student is important and it takes time to build that relationship of trust for the student to accept the help they need.
How much do you charge for tutoring?
$30/hour – Quite reasonable compared to many tutors. I want this to be affordable for those that need it.
How do you accept payments?
Office Visits – I accept Cash, Check, PayPal (which accepts all major credit cards)
Online – I invoice through PayPal (which accepts all major credit cards)
Payment is expected at the time of service or you may prepay if that is more convenient.
How do I sign up for tutoring for my child?
Please go to the Contact Us page and fill out the questionnaire. I will contact you soon and we can talk in person to see how I can help you and your child. We can schedule your first appointment at that time.
