I am a certified teacher (K-8) in the State of KY. I have been in elementary education for lots of years teaching mostly grades 6-8 in organized classes in Math and Language Arts (Reading, English Grammar, Spelling and Writing) more than any other subjects. I have tutored grades K-8 at school and with an in-home tutoring service. I am also teaching a GED class.

Experiencing a child learning and growing in confidence in a pleasure like no other. I am able to develop a loving, trusting relationship with the student and have seen marvelous results. I am constantly searching for a way to reach the child whether it be a youth or an adolescent. I have enjoyed various aspects of education, leadership as well as the classroom for almost 50 years. I believe I can help anyone learn if they have the desire.

Knowledge and friendly

Cecile was great with my nine-year-old son. He can be kind of shy and not forthcoming but she was able to get him out of the shell and they worked great together.

David , 9 lessons with Cecile

Spot on!

Cecile made my grandson feel totally at ease and he is eager to learn from her. Our first experience with a tutor and Cecile is spot on! He looks forward to her coming every week and she comes on Friday. That says a lot for Cecile because he can only use electronics on weekend and he looks forward to her visit more than his pass to use electronics.

MJ, 16 lessons with Cecile

Excellent teacher

Cecile is tutoring for writing and phonics. He is generally not very happy when it comes to writing. But with Cecile, he is showing interest and improving. Cecile is keepsychological tutoring interesting by two way interactions. Overall she is excellent teacher.

Sachin, 13 lessons with Cecile

Excellent Tutor

I was nervous about engaging a tutor at first, but Cecile has been everything we had hoped for. She absolutely goes the extra mile for her students. My 12 year old daughter (who can be fairly unsparing in her assessment of teachers) looks forward to her sessions with Cecile, calling them "one of the best parts of my day."

Michael, 13 lessons with Cecile

Wonderful Tutor

We went to Cecile for help in improving our son's confidence in his ability in math. She quickly did this in a fun way. Our son really liked her and says, "She is very, very good."

Professional on all counts

We contacted Cecile C. to help with our 9 year old daughter that wasn't reading at grade level. We had trepidation in entrusting her to someone we hadn't met. We were concerned with the quality of instruction and whether the disposition of the tutor would work well with us. On every count Cecile has exceeded our expectations, she could not be more kind and accommodating. Our daughter was at ease in only minutes after meeting her. The thing I appreciate the most is that while being friendly, she is foremost professional and focused on getting the mission accomplished. She has activities prepared upon every meeting specifically focused on the deficits she finds with her pupil. She doesn't go off on tangents and waste time with frivolity, she is about the business of improving the reader. It was providential to have found Cecile and we are very thankful for the improvements we see.

Great teacher!

Cecile C. Met with my daughter for the first time on Tuesday and she was amazing. My daughter took to her immediately and is looking forward to the next time she gets to see her.

Megan, 90 lessons with Cecile

Excellent!

Cecile has been tutoring my 7 year old for almost a year now. She is amazing and has helped my daughter tremendously! My daughter has a different learning style and processes things differently, and Cecile has worked with and supported us throughout everything. My daughter went from failing core classes to now being a A/B student thriving in school and Cecile is mainly to thank! I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Amee, 58 lessons with Cecile

Knowledgeable on the needs of elementary school students.

We've only met her once for math tutoring but she seemed to really focus in on the same concerns that I had about my 4th grader. I like that she was patient and willing to give me extensive feedback immediately after the lesson. Will definitely work with her again.

Nashiea, 3 lessons with Cecile

Professional and flexible

Cecile quickly won over my 11-yr-old son. She was professional with us both. Organized and prepared. Demonstrated her willingness to make the work interesting and fun from my child's perspective. Will continue working with her.
