About Cynthia

I majored in Romance Languages from Clark University in Worcester, Mass. I spent my junior year in Paris where I had the opportunity to teach English to young adults. I received an M.Ed in counseling psychology from Loyola University in Chicago. I have taught French and Spanish to middle-school and high school students for 20 years. I taught ESL for three years at Oakton Community College(continuing education). I love working with students to help them "break the code", to make meaning out of sounds, and to interact authentically in a new language.

I am a licensed teacher in Illinois (6th-12th grade). I tutor middle school, high school, and adults who need help with their listening, speaking and writing skills (including composition, grammar and syntax).

Even though I am a grammar "geek", I like to make language learning fun, using songs and games to reinforce concepts. What makes tutoring exciting is it gives me the opportunity to work one on one, to really understand the needs and abilities of my students. I can individualize the work and make the language come alive to you!


I hope to hear from you soon so we can improve your language skills.
