About Cynthia

Cynthia has been a professional tutor of K-12 students for over 11 years and has worked for several tutoring services in Orange and Los Angeles counties. She provides specialized tutoring for SAT and ACT test preparation, high school level math, high school and college level language arts and literature studies. She, additionally, provides assistance with undergraduate college admissions applications and essays (proofreading and editing).

For test preparation, Cynthia recommends that students allow 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 outside of her accessibility radius. In some cases, students may arrange in-person tutoring with a reasonable driving distance, on weekends. Tutoring session hourly rate is per person, unless a group discount is arranged in advance.

She asks that students allow at least one week for scheduling tutoring sessions; as same day, next day, and same week availability cannot be guaranteed.

Cynthia has also worked with the Orange County Department of Education's Alternative Education Program, and has worked as a journalist for several news organizations.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

I have been tutoring ACT English for over 10 years, and typically students who are re-taking the test improve their test scores by 10 percent.

ACT Math

I have been tutoring students for SAT and ACT level math for over 11 years, and currently prepare students for the latest version of the SAT and ACT in all subjects. Students who need to review elementary and high school math for the SAT or ACT will find that I provide a comprehensive review of all concepts needed to succeed with a top score for this college entrance exam.

ACT Reading

I have preparing students of the ACT and SAT critical reading test for the past 10 years, with particular emphasis test-taking strategy, comprehension building, and analysis of each type of question for improving accuracy.

ACT Science

I have been providing ACT and SAT test prep for over 10 years. My techniques have helped students improve their test scores by as much as 25 percent. The strategies that I employ are in line with the expectations and standards of the test-makers, so that the student is able to apply his/her knowledge in the most efficient manner for success!

Proofreading

I was a university writing tutor who proofread and edited papers and essays for students. I have been tutoring college level and elementary students for over 11 years in writing, grammar and critical reading skills. I am familiar with the proper format and stylistic elements for high school and college level writing. Additionally, I work as a freelance journalist and have written for several news organizations.

SAT Math

I tutor K-12 students in elementary math, algebra I and II, geometry, and pre-calculus (including trigonometry). In addition, I have over 10 years of experience preparing students for SAT and ACT math. My students typically improve by as much as 20 percent in math on both college entrance tests.

SAT Reading

I currently have over ten years of experience tutoring students for the SAT and ACT with proven results (please see the testimonials on my WyzAnt link).

SAT Writing

I have over 11 years of experience preparing students for the SAT test, and I have adapted my tutoring methods to the new 2016 test format. Extensive training will be provided to ensure that your test essay and writing score meet the writing standards required for a top score. An initial assessment will help me determine the level of study needed for effective and customized preparation.

Writing

I am a university writing tutor who has also worked with children in grades K-12 for the past 10 years in English, reading, writing, math and science. I have been a writing tutor for the University of California, Irvine and San Diego campuses.
