About Cindy


Bio

I HAVE ACHIEVED REMARKABLE SUCCESS TURNING "FAILING" INTO "A" GRADES. My sincere enthusiasm for tutoring is conveyed to my students with a positive attitude, infectious inspiration, and an abundance of patience. I hold a B.S. in mathematics. Math is my first passion. I believe in explaining the "why", not just the "how" of mathematics. With renewed confidence, most of my students have then brought up their grades in other subjects.

I HAVE ACHIEVED REMARKABLE SUCCESS TURNING "FAILING" INTO "A" GRADES. My sincere enthusiasm for tutoring is conveyed to my students with a positive attitude, infectious inspiration, and an abundance of patience. I hold a B.S. in mathematics. Math is my first passion. I believe in explaining the "why", not just the "how" of mathematics. With renewed confidence, most of my students have then brought up their grades in other subjects.

During the school years of 2011 to 2013, I worked with students in grades 1-6 as a Florida SES tutor. The subjects I taught were math, and reading/language. All of my assigned students performed poorly at pre-test and achieved significant advancement on post-test evaluations, surpassing goals set by Florida guidelines.

I have tutored FCAT/EOC prep for students in grades 1-10. This includes the midyear Writing FCAT.

I tutor GED, SAT and ACT for the math portions of the tests.

Studying and organizational skills are incorporated into much of my tutoring. I have also taught this separately.

I encourage personalized lessons focusing on the students needs.

I am new to the WyzAnt Tutoring family; however I have over 25 years of successful tutoring experience, the last 15 + were here in Naples.

As a Florida SES tutor, I taught Reading/Language to students in grades 1-6. Improvement in the SES program was measured by pre/post multiple choice tests designed to replicate FCAT testing. All of my assigned students performed poorly at pre-test, and achieved significant advancement on post-test evaluations, surpassing goals set by Florida guidelines.

Study Skills

I have tutored many students to help develop organizational and study skills. We always start off with an individualized questionnaire to learn the student's current procedures and any hurdles that need to be addressed. At first, we work on changing basic habits, ex: writing down all assignments, setting study times and locations, etc. I use quite a few checklists and handouts to supplement the lessons. Tutoring will also include specifics of studying for current class material and actual tests. Test taking strategies are part of this undertaking. I have helped section 504 students with this discipline. Regular communication with parents is essential for improvement.

A proficiency in Logic concepts was central to my college studies, and requisite in earning my BS in Mathematics. As a computer Systems Designer, a firm understanding of the fundamentals of Logic Rules is essential in multilevel programming logic. I have tutored Logic to several of my high school/college students with much success. The mathematical application of Logic in Truth Tables and Arguments is sometimes difficult for the student to comprehend. I believe in providing simplified examples to build upon.

Praxis - Florida (FTCE) I have been tutoring for the following portions of the FTCE tests with much success: FTCE General Knowledge Math (828) test. FTCE Middle Grades Mathematics 5-9 (025) test. I have study outlines to follow to be sure to cover each topic. I've gathered topic material which is comprehensive and comprehensible. Each test topic is paired with a great number of sample exercises. And of course I have practice tests. I let my adult students set the pace; perhaps skipping some material, while tackling other topics with a beginners approach; as they see fit. As with all of my students, my enthusiasm for tutoring is conveyed with a positive attitude and an abundance of patience.

Great tutor!

Cindy had him fill out a study questionnaire to help focus where is best. Most are very common habits that could use improvement. I asked Cooper to read outloud, he is in great shape there. We reviewed some general organization/study skills.
