About Cynthia

I have been successful as a tutor of special needs children and children with learning disabilities for 15 years. I have a passion to help others learn. I am very patient with my students, letting them go at their own pace. I have helped students pass a grade in school after they received my tutoring. I am very proud of that. I would love to tutor any child. I have a Bachelors Degree from Duquesne University. I have taken many English courses as electives. I have also taken a post graduate class in Social Psychology. I take into consideration, each students unique personality and am able to work with students of all backgrounds.

I have tutored many students, and I believe the best quality in a tutor is patience regarding the level of potential that each individual can attain. Being aware of their potential and tailoring studies to them on an individual plan is imperative to their success and ultimately the success of the tutor. I am able to suit the needs of each student based on his or her level of understanding, so that my student can feel positive about the learning process.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with many ADD/ADHD children in the last 17 years. I have the ability to help them concentrate more on their studies. I have used the ABA method of teaching to do this and have noticed the child's improvement using this technique. I have completed my Bachelors Degree from Duquesne University.

Aspergers

I have worked with many Aspergers children throughout my career. I know how to penetrate their shields to promote a learning situation. I have a Bachelors Degree from Duquesne University.

Autism

I have been working with autistic children for 17 years, as a mentor and a teacher. I have used Lovas techniques, and ABA (applied behavior analysis) to achieve remarkable results. I have a Bachelors degree from Duquesne University.

College Counseling

I have helped students at the college level and post college level with writing papers. Those students were successful after I counseled them. I have my degree from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary level students with developmental delays and also very bright students. I am a patient person and can work at the students pace. My degree is from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. I would enjoy teaching a very young child. I feel that the younger the child is, the quicker they learn which can be a really nice experience for the child.

GED

If you can get GED study materials, I would like to tutor you.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills to students with developmental delays. I am very patient with each student and will teach according to their level and speed of retention. I am a graduate of Duquesne University and my degree is in Business. I have worked for 16 years with students of all ages. My focus is on each students ability to learn study skills for various subjects including English and writing skills.
