About Cynthia

I am a Social Studies/History, English/Language Arts, and Special Education teacher with 15 years of classroom experience. I have also worked as a private tutor at a Kumon Center and a Huntington Learning Center, primarily for SAT Critical Reading and Writing Test Preparation.

In the classroom, I use a lot of technology when I present information to the students, some of which I use in private tutoring sessions when tutoring in person.

I have served as an Area Director / Primary Leader for People to People Student Ambassador Programs, a national student educational travel company. My responsibilities included recruitment/selection of both teacher leaders and students for travel overseas, directing a staff of 3 adult leaders, preparing and providing pre-travel curriculum, holding monthly educational meetings for students and parents, and leading delegations of 40+ students to various countries in Europe, Asia, and the South Pacific. My involvement with this program has allowed me to bring a great deal of my personal experience to my students, in the form of photos, artifacts and detailed knowledge of the world and its cultures.

Life saver! — Due to the holiday weekend...Cynthia helped clarify 3 essay questions for my son. It was so helpful for him to understand just what the questions were asking. He was able to make up bullet points and practice writing the essays before the exam. He was proud to score a 19 out of 20. ...
