About Cynthia

I am an Honors English teacher in a public high school and a private test prep tutor. Based on improvements in students' testing scores, the state of Florida has rated me as "Highly Effective" which is the highest classification awarded. I tend to expect a lot from my students, however, I am always there every step of the way to help them succeed. By setting high expectations, I have found that my students are able to achieve far more than they thought that they were capable of. By believing in my students and using diversified methods tailored to each student’s needs, great outcomes can be realized.

As a tutor, I focus on recognizing different learning styles and adapting my approach to meet the individual needs of the student. I think it is important to foster an environment in which my students feel capable and confident in taking educational leaps. I am particularly strong in developing analytical reading strategies and in proofreading documents.

I love to see students transformed. For example, here are the words of one of my pupils:

“English has always been the subject that I was the weakest in and the least fond of. However, over the course of this school year, that has changed. Nothing is more refreshing than getting an English teacher that is passionate about her subject, and her students. Over this year, you have taught me a lot of essay writing, which has improved my debating essays and skills immensely. You have taught me important vocabulary and literary devices, that I now use every day. You have succeeded in changing the life of at least one student.”

Please contact me with any questions. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

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.

ACT English

I am a Highly Effective Teacher rating in Martin County Schools. The skills needed to pass the new common-core tests parallel ACT. Its all about how one approaches the analysis.

SAT Reading

SAT testing strategies are my area of focus, in fact, I include this in my everyday lessons at school.
