About Cynthia

My first tutoring experience was when I was a senior at University of Minnesota and tutored a graduate student from Japan in English grammar and correct pronunciation. I have taught GED and high school completion preparation, as well as basic skill college courses. I also have instructed in Sociology, Psychology, Women's Studies and College Survival.
I have instructed and tutored in a community college, on the Umatilla Indian Reservation, in a county jail and in an Oregon State Penitentiary. I have created and managed a college-wide tutoring program and provided accommodations for students with disabling characteristics.
What I love about tutoring is learning what a student needs so I can facilitate her/his process to accomplish the goal being envisioned. I work to guide a student in discovering answers or clarity by his or her own thinking processes.

I write well and know the ins and outs of correct grammar. I have taught reading to college students so they could become critical thinkers. All of these capabilities establish the foundation for a well-prepared tutor. Earning a 4 throughout my master's degree demonstrates my own academic ability. In addition, I like people who want to learn; I like encouraging them as I teach; I like working with them as they go from where they are to where they want to go.

It is worth a try to work together and see if you and I are a good match. I am ready and enthusiastic to start.
