Cynthia has over 15 years of experience as a professional tutor working for several tutoring services in California (in Orange and Los Angeles Counties). She specializes in SAT and ACT test preparation, high school math, and college/ high school literature and language arts studies. She additionally provides assistance with undergraduate college admissions applications and essays (proofreading and editing).

When scheduling test preparation sessions, Cynthia recommends that students arrange one month (or more) of college entrance exam preparation to obtain the greatest benefit and the best results.

At the present time, Cynthia is only arranging online tutoring sessions for students due to the current worldwide health crisis. In-person tutoring can be arranged with special consideration for Covid-19 safety within a reasonable driving distance ( with a different hourly rate). The tutoring session hourly rate is per person or per group (each individual in the group is charged a group rate that is arranged in advance).

She asks that students schedule tutoring sessions ONE WEEK IN ADVANCE to ensure availability for the days and times needed. For those students who have a limited window of time to schedule tutoring sessions, Cynthia encourages them to ask her about pre-arranged, same-subject group online sessions to accommodate their needs. In-person pre-arranged, same-subject groups can only be formed for local students within her accessibility radius. Social distancing will be maintained along with wearing protective masks in accordance with state standards.

Cynthia takes into account the student's individual needs and customizes her tutoring approach to ensure that the student achieves some degree of improvement and benefit from her program. Parents are encouraged to participate, if possible, as their support makes a significant difference in their child's academic success.

Cynthia provides assistance with SAT and ACT math, pre-algebra, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, pre-calculus, SAT and ACT English and read

Writing Practice

We worked on how to write a short essay in 30 minutes on a topic that I will not know ahead of time. Cynthia gave me great strategies for how to prepare for the un-preparable... We also reviewed a short writing sample that I had written. Cynthia does a great job focusing on my particular needs.

It’s tutoring lesson.

Cynthia went over the algebra assignments I was failing. She was easy to understand and took as much time going over the problems as I needed. I am definitely using her again.
