Hello to My Future Students!
Let me introduce myself...my name is Cynthia and I love to teach math! I received my BA degree in Mathematics from Temple University, then continued my studies and got an MBA in Marketing from Temple University.
I was looking for a part-time job while raising my four children, and decided I wanted to teach. I have been a college math instructor and private tutor for more than 25 years now. I've taught part-time at three nearby universities, including Temple, Penn State, and Arcadia University. I've also taught math at Montgomery County Community College for many years. I've consistently received high marks from student evaluations after each semester. My students have found me to be caring, understanding, and very interested in their individual success. They wrote that I created a stress-free learning environment; making math seem easy and fun. I explain every math concept in a logical, methodical, step-by-step manner.
I've recently started working for WyzAnt, as I particularly enjoy the one-on-one experience of tutoring students of all ages. I am concentrating solely on tutoring now, so I am available everyday of the week (including weekends) morning, afternoons, and evenings. I have raised my four children, and now I am available to you and your children, anytime, in your home or mine, or a local library. You can call me or email me for an appointment.
In general, I prefer teaching basic math, prealgebra, algebra I, and algebra II. These courses are the building blocks of higher mathematics, and if I can give my student a good foundation of math knowledge, then I feel confident that he or she will have a better chance to succeed in higher education, and in their future life. It gives me a great deal of satisfaction knowing that I have helped someone reach their full potential academically!
I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you or your child get on that road to success!
I have been a volunteer teacher at my 4 children's elementary school. I did student teaching in an elementary school when I was studying to be a teacher at Temple University. I was a substitute teacher at Wordsworth Academy, a school for children with learning disabilities, and emotional problems. I also volunteered at an elementary school when I was in the club 'Future Teachers of America' in high school. I also taught math at various universities for the past 25 years, and I've tutored students from 2nd grade to college level.
Great Tutor — My daughter has now been with Cynthia, her tutor, for three sessions. We will be seeing her for more sessions. So far, my daughter has said that Cynthia is patient, a great teacher and helps her understand concepts she didn't understand before. My daughter has always struggled with being afraid of asking too many questions for fear that the teacher might get annoyed or not like her. She has ask ...
