About Cindy


Bio

Learning should be fun, not a hassle! I am an experienced teacher, specializing in the primary grades, although I have taught at the college and adult levels as well. A graduate of the National College of Education (now called National Louis University), in Evanston IL, teaching is my passion.

Learning should be fun, not a hassle! I am an experienced teacher, specializing in the primary grades, although I have taught at the college and adult levels as well. A graduate of the National College of Education (now called National Louis University), in Evanston IL, teaching is my passion.

In addition to a BA in Applied Behavioural Sciences, I have met all of the requirements for a B.S. in Elementary Education with the exception of Practice Teaching. I was too busy teaching to take four months off to practice teach. Additionally I have more than 120 Hours at the Mayerson Academy in Cincinnati where I focused on reading, phonics, and the others primary grade subjects and many of the current techniques for teaching them.

Teaching the fundamentals of reading, writing, and arithmetic (and, yes, even penmanship) should not be done to the tune of the hickory stick, but with love, patience, and understanding. I can offer your child an emotionally safe environment in which to learn and grow.

In addition to working with children in the primary grades, I also work with adults and students of all ages on English as a second language.

Great patient tutor for English

Cindy has been helping my fifth grade son for over six months now. She helps him with reading comprehension, vocabulary and grammar. Most of all, I think she helped him gain confidence and understand why/ how mastering the language is important. Matthias now reads by himself a lot more than before. Cindy is also patient and nice, with a lot of expertise tutoring.

Very helpful and understanding

Cindy is a wonderful tutor! She worked very well with my son who’s been struggling in writing. She tight him how to hold his pencil and even left one here for him to practice with! I’m looking forward to our next visit.

Wonderful tutor

Miss Cindy tutored my 6 year old in handwriting and beginning reading. She was very patient and understanding in his needs. Miss Cindy was able to help him in his handwriting tremendously and I am pleased at how far he has advanced over the summer. I highly recommend her as a tutor and would not hesitate to use her again.

Bonnie, 13 lessons with Cindy

Exceptional Tutor!

Miss Cindy has been helping my daughter with reading a little over two months. I am impressed with my daughters progress. She has improved tremendously with her Star testing scores and she feels more confident in taking her Wonders tests at school. My daughter is always looking forward to her next lesson. Miss Cindy has great teaching techniques and keeps my daughter engaged in all her lessons. We are truly blessed to have found such an amazing teacher.

A Gem!

This is our first experience using a tutor. Finding Cindy was like hitting the jackpot. She is prompt, organized, friendly, and does not waste time. She gets right into learning. She has a great sense of humor which put our son at ease and makes learning fun. Cindy should add Magician to her profile because our son looks forward to his tutor time! Thank you!

Quality FCAT Prep With Great Results

Mrs. Cindy H. has a great and calming personality, which is very comforting for students who are insecure in their abilities. She is very motivating and adjusts the goal with an individual study plan. She creates a trustworthy and motivational tutoring environment due to her great educational experience. My daughter feels very comfortable with her and has started believing more in herself. Thus, a greater joy working with numbers, which results in better grades. My 9 year old girls is ready for the FCAT test!! Thank you so much!!
