About Cynthia

My journey into teaching and tutoring began with math but I have since expanded my tutoring to include science and test prep as well. After winning 1st place in PA on math competitions, I served as the Assistant Coach for Germantown Friends School’s MathCounts team. In that capacity, I taught small math classes and offered one-on-one help to students. From there, I began private tutoring and discovered the efficacy of tailoring my instruction to each individual learner. While in college, I taught SAT classes and also created science demonstrations and lessons for local schools. Since moving back to the Philadelphia area, I have become a highly regarded and sought-after tutor in the Main Line.

My academic expertise and personable teaching style, coupled with my 15 years of private tutoring experience and my work in the test prep industry, enable me to provide effective and engaging individual and small group instruction. I get to know each student’s learning style, personality, areas of academic difficulty, and strengths so that I can target areas of weakness while capitalizing on each student’s strengths. In addition to my work as a tutor, I work part-time writing practice SAT and ACT questions for a test prep company, and so I am very familiar with the types of questions and answer choices, as well as the content and strategies needed to do well, on those tests.

Please contact me to discuss your tutoring needs. Thanks!

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.

Genetics

I am approved to tutor subjects (biology, microbiology, etc.) that include genetics and I am currently tutoring someone (not through Wyzant) in genetics. I taught at Kaplan for 2 years and have been doing private tutoring for 15 years. In addition, I have a life science background; I was the top student in my major (microbiology) and I earned A's in all of my genetics classes.

TEAS

I am approved to tutor the ACT, which has the same 4 sections (English, math, reading, science) that the TEAS has. I taught test prep at Kaplan for 2 years and have been doing private tutoring for 15 years. In addition, I have a science background; I was the top student in my major (microbiology). I also have plenty of experience in working with college/adult students.

Excellent tutor

Cynthia helped my son do some review for the SAT subject test in Physics which included brushing up on previously-studied topics in addition to other topics which he had not covered in his previous coursework. I appreciate that she was willing to take on this short-term assignment (she met with him on three occasions). Her preparation, focus, and efficiency really helped him make the most of the
