Cynthia is nothing short of amazing. We have had three tutors and Cynthia is by far the best one we have ever had. She is not only patient and kind but very well versed in Algebra. In addition, Cynthia really knows how to teach the subject. She takes an active role with our daughter which allows our daughter to really comprehend and retain the material. I cannot recommend Cynthia highly enough. Hire her! You will not be sorry, in fact you will be very blessed.

Tom, thanks for sharing your daughter with me! She has a great attitude and really is focused on doing everything with excellence. She has learned how to apply rules of algebra to each problem until the correct answer is found. I especially like it when I ask her to "be the instructor" and teach me how to do a problem! She does a great job of breaking down the process and explaining it verbally as well as in writing. I can understand why her grades were so high! She worked hard and totally deserved them!

Cynthia is so patient and kind. My daughter didn't want a tutor, she was afraid they would act like she was dumb. Cynthia has been so great with her. She is really coming along in math.

How kind of you to post a comment! Working on ACT math with your daughter has been a pleasure! She has shown me her logical methods for eliminating wrong answers and narrowing down the choices (which is a highly-recommended strategy for test-taking). That isn't something that is easy to teach! She just DOES it! It is a joy to watch!

Cynthia is providing my daughter with the instruction she needs to succeed on the math/science portion of the ACT test. She has the expertise required to address any of her weaknesses in these areas. I am also impressed by Cynthia's thorough feedback of her progress after every lesson!

Thanks, Marcella for your kind words. Your daughter is so motivated and conscientious. I love spending Wednesday afternoon with her, and I will miss her after the ACT!

Cynthia is very friendly, knowledgeable and always well prepared for the lesson. My daughter enjoys her teaching style. We are glad that we found Cynthia and looking forward to continuing lessons with her.

Cynthia was very knowledgeable and patient while explaining the ins and outs of algebra. I felt very comfortable with her and she explained concepts in a way that helped understand.

I called Cynthia for help with GRE prep. She was accommodating and friendly. After our session, I felt much more confident in my math abilities, and my practice scores are already improving. Cynthia teaches with enthusiasm, and takes the time to make sure you understand; she genuinely wants you to succeed. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a math tutor! It was an excellent experience!
Cynthia replied on 8/4/2012:
Moriah, I am thrilled that you scored so well on the GRE and have been admitted into grad school to follow your passion! You were an excellent student, and I loved working with you on the GRE math problems. Congratulations!!!!!

Cynthia worked with my daughter for both ACT preparation and Algebra II. She was a huge help for both areas. My daughter really enjoyed working with her each week and felt confident after each session. I appreciated the fact that Cynthia was flexible, on-time and reliable. I would highly recommend Cynthia as a math tutor.
Cynthia replied on 6/25/2012:
Peggy, thanks for the kind words. Your daughter was a pleasure to work with. She was sometimes frustrated about how fast her teacher whisked through the material, but her attitude was always willing and positive. She generally knew more than she thought she had absorbed. She just needed extra practice!! Hope the summer is a welcome break for both of you!

Cynthia was very patient and was concerned with my son really understanding Algebra 1. She was easy to talk to and knew the subject well. I recommend her to anyone who really needs a good tutor, she also fit us in to her schedule with short notice.

My son has had two lessons so far. He is a ninth grader taking honors geometry who has just hit a difficult part in the curriculum. He liked the venue for tutoring - a coffee shop, and he immediately took to Cynthia. She put him at ease and it was all very comfortable, with no awkward moments. Just what you need from a tutor. In the two sessions, she gave him confidence but more than that, he has been motivated to take his books out and work independently to prepare for a test.
I am so happy that we met Cynthia. We will be meeting with her again come test time. Thanks Cynthia!

Our daughter loved her 1st session with Cynthia. We came from a more structured environment at a learning center and things just weren't clicking over there. Having a professional mentor like Cynthia is not only having a tutor but an adult role model for our teen aged daughter.
Our daughter has improved over 1 letter grade last card marking and is putting much more effort into her studying and lessons. She loves Cynthia and greatly appreciates her conscientious nature. She wishes she would have started with her at the beginning of the school year.

Cynthia is a very good tutor. The first time I met with her she found a unique way to teach me so I can understand.

Cynthia has really helped my high school junior with his math. He enjoys the sessions with her and his grades are improving. She has been great!
