About Cynthia


Bio

I still remember that day in my high school geometry class when I decided that I wanted to be a math teacher! While majoring in both math and English education, I began tutoring while still in college, and I haven't stopped teaching since! After teaching geometry and algebra in a public school in Texas, I have tutored public, private and home-schooled students for over 20 years in Arizona and Michigan.

Over the last few years, my greatest satisfaction has come from leading students through...

I still remember that day in my high school geometry class when I decided that I wanted to be a math teacher! While majoring in both math and English education, I began tutoring while still in college, and I haven't stopped teaching since! After teaching geometry and algebra in a public school in Texas, I have tutored public, private and home-schooled students for over 20 years in Arizona and Michigan.

Over the last few years, my greatest satisfaction has come from leading students through the preparation for the ACT and SAT. A few one-on-one prep sessions have improved or fulfilled college acceptance goals for my students. My experience in teaching middle and high school math enables me to teach the math and science sections. My English accreditation gives me the ability to teach the rest of the test. My one-on-one instruction identifies your problem areas and helps you understand how to correct your techniques, always with the goal of making you confident in your abilities and less anxious about the test.

A few one-on-one prep sessions have raised or fulfilled college acceptance goals for my students. Two of my Michigan students were accepted into the Air Force Academy. Another received a full scholarship to the University of Alabama. Others earned sport scholarships to the UofM and Ohio State (soccer and hockey). A junior raised his ACT English score by 4 points after we spent 4 hours together reviewing commonly-covered English topics. I received a text from the father of a student whose ACT score went from 18 to 24 after we spent 7 hours together.

I tutored a club soccer player who had a scholarship offer to a private California university but had not scored high enough on the SAT to receive it. After taking the Princeton Review and taking the test two times without succeeding, he began practicing for the test with me and made the score he needed to receive a full-ride to a very expensive school!

I worked with a college graduate in MI who had been offered a lucrative fellowship for her Masters prog

ISEE,

ISEE

I have tutored several students for the ISEE, leading to their acceptances into the Catholic school of their choice. The ISEE tests topics which the student has already covered in middle school as well as topics which will soon be covered in high school. In many ways, it is similar to the SAT. It evaluates the applicant's mastery in both math and verbal. I have also tutored students in the placement test for math in parochial schools. My student (who had already been accepted to his school of choice due to his scores on the ISEE) placed out of Algebra 1 and into advanced Algebra 2.

A treasure and a scholar!

Cynthia is an amazing tutor. She patiently took time with me in teaching algebra and is extremely sharp and on her toes when it comes to numbers. She made everything easily digestible for a math layman like me. Cynthia will definitely make you pass your test without fail.

Jonathan, 2 lessons with Cynthia

Excellent tutor

Cynthia was great with Lexi. She is super patient and made explaining something she thought was difficult very easy to understand!

Kimberly, 2 lessons with Cynthia

Understanding

She taught me different ways of learning my material so I could find a way that fit me perfectly. I like how I always practice problems with her and how she will help me with them. She has helped me become more confident in math and helped me get the grade I wanted!

Worked hard to fit us in

Cynthia worked hard to get my son in during a busy week leading up to some major project due dates. She is helping him stay organized with his priorities and we have seen test improvement already.

Excellent tutor

Cynthia has worked with my daughter for two ACT tests. My daughter feels she has been an excellent tutor, crafting each lesson to my daughter's strengths and weaknesses. Cynthia is always positive and encouraging. My daughter found the tips and advice she gave for each section to be very helpful. Overall, a very good experience. We highly recommend Cynthia.

Great tutor

Cynthia tutored my niece in her first college semester Intermediate College Algebra class for about six weeks. My niece was very pleased with Cynthia. The proof is in her final grade which exceeded our expectations.

Tutor responded:

John, it was my pleasure to work with her. She was a perfect student because she went to her class, paid attention and took good notes, and came to me ready to complete her assignments! I am so glad that she did so well on her final and received a good grade in her class!!!

Awesome tutor

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.

Amy, 4 lessons with Cynthia
Tutor responded:

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! UPDATE on 1/6: Congratulations to your daughter on raising her composite score by 3 points after working so hard during our sessions on reviewing/improving her math skills. That's an amazing improvement!!!!!
