About Cynthia

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.

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.

CBEST

I have taken and passed the CBEST. I have also tutored CBEST through the Urban Teacher Academy at CSU East Bay. I teach writing/composition at the same university.

College Counseling

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.
