Hello Everyone:

Let me tell you a little about what I do. I have a variety of skills and extensive experience (20 years+) in the following subject areas relevant to English: I am a writing coach, with specialization in composition and the whole writing process. I am a test prep instruction specialist in writing essays for standardized tests. I am an experienced tutor in English language, literature, and writing (20 years+ experience in tutoring students
of all ages, from middle school to graduate school).

For those of you looking for a tutor with a background in higher education, I have a Ph.D. in English and have assisted students with statements of purpose for the college application process; offered coaching on writing assignments specific to university/college level composition courses; and provided tutorial/editing support for students with capstone and dissertation writing projects. I am user friendly and love to work with students of all ages as well as from diverse linguistic, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.

If you happen to be looking for a writing coach who can help you with capstone, thesis, or dissertations, I am currently a dissertation editor at the university where I work. I have assisted students in the writing process from proposal to dissertation completion.

I conduct online tutoring for any client who may prefer to have content reviewed and edited electronically.

I am a university instructor, and I have assisted students on how to prepare their college application packets. I have helped students to write statements of purpose and personal narratives while I was a tutor in the university's learning center (for 7 years). I understand the application process and am quite familiar with the kind of content that college and university admissions offices are looking for from a potential college applicant.

Awesome Editor!

Cynthia is intelligent, insightful and extremely professional. I highly recommend her services. She is a pleasure to work with. She has made the past two years much less stressful for me and allowed me to focus on the content of my papers.

Excellent work

Cynthia is very professional, incredibly smart, and most importantly is an excellent tutor. As a grad student sometimes I need help in a short notice, and Cynthia is very flexible and punctual. I am really lucky to have found her.
