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

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.

Knowledgeable tutor for SAT prep

Cynthia was a excellent tutor for my son who was studing to take the SAT. He has accommodations that allow for him to have a reader. She tailored her instruction to help him learn the same way that he would when taking the test. They reviewed strategies and tips to be successful when taking the test. Her schedule was very flexible and she worked around some of our challenges with availability. I would recommend Cynthia for SAT prep.
