Cynthia is an effective and knowledgeable tutor. My conversational German increases with each lesson. The lesson plan is tailored for my needs and at a pace I can handle.
Cynthia is a fantastic teacher. My children are benefiting so much from their time with her. They love being with her!
Cynthia does a great job emphasizing color and light when composing paintings. She is a great teacher of both the technical aspects of painting as well as the "artistic" aspects of painting.
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.

I have a BFA from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, where I received a full four-year tuition scholarship based on my painting and drawing abilities. I have developed master knowledge of perspective, color, and composition. Since graduating, I have enjoyed giving private art lessons for adults and children.
As a painting teacher, I like to help the student rethink the way they are looking at subject matter, by helping them understand the relations that foreground and background space has with each other and how they can measure these difference against each other to build the images they want. Also key is helping the student understand how to mix and apply colors and their compliments in order to render shading, light, foreground and background.
