Cynthia is among the top 10 percent of Wyzant tutors for the year 2020. She 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, chemistry and biology, and college/ high school literature and language arts studies.

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. In-person tutoring can be arranged with special consideration for Covid-19 safety within a reasonable driving distance. The tutoring session hourly rate is per person or per group (each individual in the group is assessed a group rate arranged in advance).

She asks that students schedule tutoring sessions ONE WEEK IN ADVANCE to ensure availability for the days and times needed.

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 progress and success.

Cynthia provides assistance with SAT and ACT math, pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, pre-calculus, biology, honors chemistry, SAT and ACT English and reading, ACT science, high school and college level essay writing, English language arts, and U.S. and world history.

Amazing Tutor

We hired Cynthia to help our 9 th grader pass Algebra. He was very far behind. Cynthia really took the time to explain the assignments and made sure he knew the material. He passed his final exam and completed all his work. He really enjoyed working with her. I would absolutely recommend Cynthia.

Thank you so much it was a pleasure working with you!

my son is excited to see her again!!

It is very difficult to get my son to engage when it comes to math. I came through the room and watched him fully engaged and participating in the lesson. Can’t wait to see him grow! Seeing her again next week!

SAT Reading

My Son had a great first meeting on Sat reading session with Cynthia. I love that she wanted to meet the parent and student together to discuss their needs. My son said she gave some valuable tips for taking the test. We can't wait for the next session.
