Bio

Although I spent most of my career in IT on Wall Street, I don't remember a time when I didn't tutor. As "fifth from the top" in a family of eleven children, I starting tutoring my younger siblings at a very early age. The first official tutoring job I had with a student outside of my family was with a fourth grader when I was in the seventh grade. I tutored children sporadically throughout high school and college. In my undergraduate program at NYU, I majored in Computer Science after...

Although I spent most of my career in IT on Wall Street, I don't remember a time when I didn't tutor. As "fifth from the top" in a family of eleven children, I starting tutoring my younger siblings at a very early age. The first official tutoring job I had with a student outside of my family was with a fourth grader when I was in the seventh grade. I tutored children sporadically throughout high school and college. In my undergraduate program at NYU, I majored in Computer Science after spending my first two years as a Pre-Med student. In my junior year, when I switched to pursue a Computer Science major, I worked as a student computer consultant, helping students with their computer science assignments at both NYU and Baruch College Computer Centers. I think one of my proudest tutoring moments was, while I was in my senior year at NYU and still working at the computer centers of NYU and Baruch, I also taught the six-year-old son of one of NYU's professors how to program in the BASIC programming language on a PC. It involved first successfully teaching him some pre-algebra concepts. I wonder to this day what that child, who actually learned to program at 6, is doing today in life.

In my last job as a Vice President in IT at a NYC Investment Bank, I read to/with nearby elementary students on my lunch hour in the Everybody Wins reading program my company participated in for several years. Also, when I completed my coursework towards a master's degree in Computer Science at NYU Courant Institute Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, I started teaching first, third and/or sixth graders religious education and continue to this day. A fun moment for me a few years back was teaching some calculus concepts to my then ten-year old stepson and to see his face light up when he was really "getting it."

I am patient, will adjust my teaching methods to the individual needs of the particular student and specialize in math and computer science. I have also recently worked with many GRE students. I look forward to the opportunity to help you or your child not only succeed in school but enjoy it as well!

Computer Programming

I am an IT Professional with over 18 years of industry work experience. I have held positions in Technology ranging from C and C++ Development to Unix systems programming, to integration engineering, to managing diverse heterogeneous computing environments in the Research, Education and Financial Industries. I received my B.S. in Computer Science from NYU in 1984, and completed all coursework towards a M.S. in Computer Science from NYU GSAS.
Computer Science,

Computer Science

I received my B.S. in Computer Science from NYU, and completed all coursework towards a M.S. in Computer Science from NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. I tutored in Computer Science courses all through college. I completed courses in all aspects of Computer Science including Computer Vision, Robotics, Data Communications, Database, Programming Languages, Operating Systems, and Computer Architecture. In my Masters program, I also worked on a Robotics Independent Study project with Professor Ken Perlin, an Acadamy Award Winner. At the time I was completing my Masters courses, I was working at Philips Research Laboratory as a programmer and then network and systems administrator which included providing written manuals on the use of the computer systems there; then I worked at NYU managing the Computing Resources for the Math and Computer Science Departments there; and then I also worked at a non-profit Pension Fund. Afterwards, I worked in all aspects of technology at an investment bank for 11 years which depended on my general Computer Science knowledge, especially in the area of understanding the requirements for electronic trading systems to run within our complex secure computing environment. I have a vast knowledge of different operating systems and computer languages.

Patient tutor

She helped me with JavaScript programming language. She is a very knowledgeable and understanding tutor. She has a nice way of approaching the materials.

Great Tutor

This was my first experience with WyzAnt and a tutor for my son. She was on time and actually stayed a little later then scheduled to talk to us about the lesson. She made my son feel at ease and comfortable. I asked my son how he felt and he was very happy and thought that the lesson helped. We have booked Cecilia for future lessons.

Super knowledgeable about esoteric stuff.

She really helps me out. I've seen her 3 times and expect to see her another ten if I'm still having problems with my class. Then I'll see her for some calculus stuff too. (Again, if I need her. But I'll probably see her anyway just to codify the concepts in my head.)

Very dedicated

Cecilia is a very dedicated tutor. She is patient, understanding and very thorough . She goes over each step of the math problem and truly wants the student to succeed. She is always available to answer any questions and will get back to the student quickly. I am very happy that we were able to find Cecilia and feel that she always goes above and beyond in each of her tutoring sessions.

A Personable Mathematician With Good Communication Skills & Resources

I chose Cecilia to help me prepare for GRE math. Her initial emails showed her to be the literate, personable, sincere, and caring tutor that she is. I am a totally right-brained artist, actor, and writer so I was glad that she discerned the style of communication that I needed. A very resourceful tutor, she brings extra printouts to sessions which you will keep. She will find and deliver the right approach you need.
