About Cynthia


Bio

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,...

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 18 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!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

She knows the material and communicates effectively. I was also received feedback on how to improve note taking and studying. My first session with her was quite productive.

Awesome Tutor

Cynthia helped my daughter with SAT Subject Math 2 prep work and pre-calc honor school material. We are thrilled to have Cynthia helping her with math. We are looking forward to having Cynthia helping Erin with rest of her math high school career.

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 sessions. I would recommend her highly for tutoring and test prep in Physics or any other subject in her varied areas of expertise.

Amazing tutor

Cynthia tutored my son for the SAT Subject Matter Test in Chemistry. My son had eleven sessions with Cynthia and he felt she was very organized and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend her and would definitely use her services again, if needed.

Elliot, 11 lessons with Cynthia

Very knowledgeable and easy to relate to tutor.

My daughter loved Cynthia. She used to go to MJ Test Prep for tutoring, but she enjoyed studying in her own home and said that Cynthia was a much better tutor.

Arlene, 5 lessons with Cynthia

Cynthia was on point with evaluating what I needed and how to address the issues I need to strengthen.

Cynthia was patient and made me comfortable with the assignments I needed to tackle. She is very open to communication.
