Cynthia has been a professional tutor 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 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 within her accessibility radius. In some cases, students who reside outside of the accessibility radius may arrange in-person tutoring with a reasonable driving distance, on weekends. The tutoring session hourly rate is per person, or per group with group discounts 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 worked with the Orange County Department of Education's Alternative Education Program and has worked as a freelance journalist.
