About Cynthia

My goal is to help each student meet his or her full academic potential as life-long learners. For 15 years I've served a diverse learning community that included students with ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Executive Functioning Disorder, Auditory Processing Disorder, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia and many other specific learning disabilities. I'm trained through the National Institute of Learning Development and I hold a Master's degree in teaching as well as my professional certification as an educational therapist.

The students I serve range in age from four years old to adulthood. I teach skills in time management, study habits, goal setting, personal organization, project organization and completion and self advocacy in addition to supporting academic endeavors like homework help, test preparation, essay/report writing and reading remediation. While temporary successes like homework completion and test success are important my main goal is developing struggling learners into independent students.

I look forward to discussing your specific needs and helping you reach your personal and academic goals.

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.

Phonics

I've been formally trained in reading remediation through the National Institute of Learning Development using the Orton-Gillingham methodology for reading remediation.

Special Needs

I am a PCET (Professionally Certified Educational Therapist). I have over 15 years experience working with students that struggle with mild-severe learning disabilities.
