I am so impressed with Cynthia. First of all she is very kind and ultra patient. She gives the student time to process things and figure them out and do it on their own. She helps you along the way without doing it for you, which is so great! She explains things very well, step-by-step, so that they are logical, and she gives you alternative ways to practice. She also REALLY knows her grammar and makes it a point to clarify anytime you're unclear, and she gets right back to you if there is something she is unsure of, or a question comes up, or you need more practice with. I've studied Arabic numerous times and over many years in the US and overseas and had lots of teachers. She taught me things in two weeks that I never knew and really helped me to make sense of some bits and pieces of knowledge I had that I really couldn't apply. Now I really get it and feel more confident in using the language. She listens very well too and is observant of the student's abilities and points they need to work on! That's a big plus for me. She also made sure to discuss in detail with me my goals and language background in order to tailor the lessons to my specific needs. Cynthia is very professional and conscientious and well-organized. She doesn't waste your time and comes prepared. She's positive, upbeat and encouraging, which motivates the student to learn more and makes you feel great about your successes. And that's really something when it comes to learning Arabic!!! I highly, highly recommend her and so glad I found her!
I am enjoying my Arabic lessons with Cynthia very much! She is excellent at communicating concepts and sounds so that I can understand. I am learning a lot more with her help than I could in a class or on my own. Cynthia obviously loves the language and makes it interesting and fun.
Cynthia is an excellent French tutor - very patient, personable, and approachable. I appreciate her willingness and ability to tailor the lessons to the student's specific needs. For example, I need to be able to speak French in a healthcare setting, so our lessons are a mix of general and medical topics. She gives sincere encouragement along with well-timed, constructive feedback, and she shows a genuine interest in the student's personal progress. I've been very happy so far with the quality of the lessons she gives and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their French (or Arabic) skills!
