This is how 2 referees rated Lynne:
Hello I'm Lynne and I am a passionate, committed and extremely patient tutor. I am a University of Glasgow graduate with both a BSc (Hons) in Medical Biochemistry (1999) and a PhD in Biochemistry (2004). After completing my education I continued my career in scientific research working as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Glasgow, the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research and the University of Calgary. I started my tutoring business 5 years ago and I have been tutoring on a full time basis since then. I have always enjoyed mentoring and inspiring young minds and I wish to continue sharing my knowledge by being a home tutor. I have a wealth of knowledge, both factual and practical, in maths, biology and chemistry and I am keen to share this knowledge with your child. I have the unique advantage over other tutors that I tutor Maths, biology and chemistry from primary 1 up to university level and as such I am able to assist your child in all 3 areas if required. I have only a few spaces left for the coming academic year (2017-2018) therefore if you think your child would benefit from my service please get in touch to secure your spot just in time for the new academic year commencing.
I have 13 years of experience of teaching at various levels from tutoring friends and family for their high school exams to tutoring undergraduate students at university studying for their degrees. I have tutored all levels of students in the subjects of maths, biology and chemistry. I have tutored on a full time basis for the past 5 years with tutees of various levels of study ranging from primary school to mature students studying at college and university. I have extensive knowledge and experience tutoring students studying for the new Curriculum for Excellence at National 4, National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher levels. I also specialise in more short term intensive tuition for students resitting university exams or looking to gain the knowledge to apply for university access courses and degree courses.
I always ensure that I treat each student as an indiviual and tailor my method and approach to tutoring to the individual students needs. I am a very patient person who is never defeated so if a student does not understand immediately how to approach a problem I give them the tools to work through the problem methodically and with patience. As well as identifying areas of improvement from a chat with the tutee and parents/carers, I also like to pose the tutee several other problems to help me identify other areas that may require attention but are not at the forefront. I use a variety of approaches to my tutoring from past exam papers, to worksheets to everyday examples the tutee can relate to. I strive to develop the tutees thinking ability without just teaching them how to cram and remember facts. I am an extremely organised person and I will also help establish a suitable study plan and schedule to help the tutee realise his/her educational goals. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to hearing from you.

We had a very unusual and difficult request of Lynne as my daughter is studying the full Biology and Chemistry A level courses from home due to illness and so we needed someone with a kind and caring nature to professionally guide her through the full syllabus.
I know this request has been difficult for some tutors in the previous years but Lynne grasped the whole concept with ease from the very beginning and from the first lesson had already drawn up a timetable and arranged joint study materials to be put in place.
My daughter is so happy and at ease now with the syllabus, in Lynne’s company and has complete trust in the way things are going.
Lynne has been a great find for us and we appreciate her hard work so much.
Also, Lynne is very accommodating and flexible with us with any changes to lessons.
We are very lucky to have her as a tutor.
She has a knack of extracting info. that otherwise would be untold by asking kids the right questions that us parents just don't know to ask.
She is very patient and friendly and is always very punctual.
Would highly recommend her.
helpful and flexible
Lynne is professional and friendly ,giving regular feedback… My daughter is happy too.
Would recommend without hesitation.
Adam can be very easily distracted but Lynne is very good at keeping him focused on planning his studying and his grasp of Maths and Chemistry has greatly improved.
I would not hesitate to recommend Lynne as a tutor.
My son gets on well with Lynn and she has
Really helped cement his knowledge and
Work on improving his grade in the subject.
