I am an experienced tutor who is available to work with students either one-on-one or in small groups. I take a personal interest in each student's progress and tailor the lessons according to the needs of the individual.

For SAT prep, I focus on strategies and test-taking skills, as well as practice and explanations with actual testing material. I am able to teach and review math skills and operations, as well as English grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension specific to the SAT. I can help students hone writing skills for the essay portion of the SAT exam.

In addition to SAT prep, I am an experienced math tutor for middle school math through Regents geometry. I have experience tutoring students with a variety of different learning styles, including students with IEPs. In addition to academics, I provide support and encouragement, emphasize strengths, and focus on creating a positive, fun learning experience. I hold a B.A. in English from the University of Rochester, as well as a B.S. in Biology and D.P.M. medical degree from Scholl College in Chicago.

Test Preparation

Accuplacer,

Accuplacer

I have been teaching and tutoring math, reading, and English for over 6 years, including preparing students for the Accuplacer test. I currently teach high school algebra and can help students prepare for all math levels for the Accuplacer, including high school algebra and geometry, as needed. In addition to holding a university degree in English, I have been preparing students for the TEAS, SAT and ACT tests for over six years, and I am proficient in all areas of reading and writing preparation.
TEAS,

TEAS

The TEAS exam (Test of Essential Academic Skills) is an admissions test for nursing school. It includes tests of reading, English, math, and science. I have experience tutoring both the TEAS and the TABE (a different nursing school admissions test) which is similar to the TEAS albeit less challenging. Not only am I an experienced math tutor (algebra, geometry, and SAT/ACT prep), I hold a BA in English from the University of Rochester and BS Biology and DPM (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) degrees from Scholl College in Chicago. My educational background includes an entire spectrum of college-level biology and chemistry courses in addition to the math and English courses.

Thank you so much for the great feedback. Alex is a great student, and I’m so happy to be working with him!

Knowledgeable and enthusiastic tutor!

I found Cynthia to be patient, intelligent, and kind. I needed to refresh and learn math from over 20 years ago and she worked with me to meet these goals. When things went too quickly, she heard me and reviewed the material again.

Breaks down concepts so they are easy to understand

Cynthia is tutoring my son for his biology midterm. She has helped him understand concepts that he did not have a solid grasp of and he feels much more confident going into the midterm this week! Thank you!
