About Cynthia

I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I am certified to teach kindergarten through 8th grade. I have experience teaching throughout these grade levels as well as working with individual and small group tutoring sessions. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to work individually with various types of students. As an educator, I know that different students have different learning styles and learning needs. Sometimes it is very difficult for students to learn everything in a larger group during the regular school year. The tutoring atmosphere allows the student to relax, work on the specific skills, and take that skill to mastery. I like teaching reading focusing on fluency, grammar, and comprehension. I like to teach math through a problem solver's eye. I like to use games, technology, puzzles, and teacher/student made activities. I like to use active learning so that the student can participate in real life, real time learning before we work on the skill on paper.

The exciting part of the process comes when I can accurately match the learning style, the instructional materials and tools, and the interests of the student to the needs of that particular student. I have taught a variety of grade levels and I am very knowledgeable about the bench mark skills or each grade level. Students may become discouraged when learning becomes difficult. It is very important for me to understand the small pieces of a skill that will help the student to be able to work on a skill with the confidence that learning can happen. Learning is an adventure in every way!

Approved subjects

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.
