About Syndia A

I am an international teacher, having started my career 16 years ago in my home country, Jamaica. I achieved both my Bachelor Degree in Literatures in English, as well as my Diploma in Education in Jamaica. I have guided students to success in the Caribbean English exams both at the high school and college level.

I began my career in the USA in Prince William County, Virginia, there I garnered experience in tutoring, which includes home tutoring. After five years in Virginia, I transitioned to Washington DC, where I have begun my fifth year at Chavez Schools for Public Policy, a charterrol institution. There I have taught and tutored grade 12 students, preparing them in writing and reading for SAT as well as college. For me, I believe that students learn best by discovery. I give students the space to work through all difficulties, using strategies learned.

Although most of my teaching career has been at the secondary lesson, I have worked with children of all ages, helping them to improve their writing and reading comprehension skills through strategies that are tailored to their needs

I look forward to assisting you, and helping you to develop your reading and analytical skills.

I guarantee success!
