About Cyndie


Bio

Experience has taught me that students will meet the bar that you set for them. Raise the bar high and give them the support and structure they need and they will reach it.

I have a true love of both teaching and learning. Not much beats the feeling of seeing a student have that moment when things finally "click"! Patience and good communication skills with each individual student are key. Equally important is the willingness and ability to adapt methods of explaining a topic until you...

Experience has taught me that students will meet the bar that you set for them. Raise the bar high and give them the support and structure they need and they will reach it.

I have a true love of both teaching and learning. Not much beats the feeling of seeing a student have that moment when things finally "click"! Patience and good communication skills with each individual student are key. Equally important is the willingness and ability to adapt methods of explaining a topic until you find one that is right for that student. I enjoy working with students one on one to build their confidence and help them achieve their highest potential.

I am a summa cum laude graduate holding a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology and Mathematics. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA while taking overload courses and raising two children to very successful adulthood - so my study skills, work ethic, and organizational skills are also very strong. I have a quadruple level II teaching certification in Middle School and High School Mathematics, Middle School Science, and High School Biology.

I worked as a full time teacher at the high school level for ten years teaching several different math courses. I have also worked as an adjunct math instructor at a local college. I specialize in Geometry, Algebra, pre-calculus, and Trigonometry. However, I have a broad knowledge base in math and science disciplines in general and have successfully tutored a wide variety of subjects. I have also had extensive experience in SAT/ACT and other standardized test preparation.

For the past three years I have devoted myself solely to private tutoring and I must say I am one of those lucky few people who can truly say "I love my job"!!

I look forward to hearing from you and to helping you or your child to achieve success!

Wish We Started Sooner - Algebra II

In a matter of two months time we have seen our son go from struggling in his Algebra II class (barely passing) to pulling a 94 on his last test. Since the school year started, we saw regular grades in the low 70’s. Since we started working with Cyndie, our son’s overall grade for the marking period is an 86. There is no doubt, Cyndie has tutored our son to success.

Amazing!!!

I can't say enough good things about Cyndie!! In two short lessons, my daughter has more confidence and felt so comfortable with Cyndie!! We will definitely reach back out to her in the future!

Kelley, 3 lessons with Cyndie

Knowledgeable tutor

Cyndie is very good with each of my kids, each with their own learning style. She is very patient with them and is able to teach kids with different skill levels. We are very satisfied with her and highly recommend her for Algebra, Physics, and Biology.

Stacy, 42 lessons with Cyndie

Good calculus tutor!

Per my son at college, who is being tutored: Knows what she's doing, smart, good at teaching, understands questions and able to answer in a way that is very understandable.

Becky, 8 lessons with Cyndie

Knowledgeable, Patient Tutor

Cyndie has done an excellent job in tutoring my son in Algebra I He has gained more confidence in working through the problems. His grades in Algebra I are improving due to her. We will definately be using her next year for his geometry.

Fun and very patient

I normally cringe at the idea of having someone watch me do math. I've never had any positive experience with it, but I had to get a tutor to help me with studying to pass the Praxis core math test. I'm glad I chose Cyndie! Cyndie is a very patient math tutor who actually makes me laugh during our time together. I never thought, for example, that conditional statements could be so much fun! If I don't understand how to arrive at an answer she explains it thoroughly, with visuals. If I still don't understand it, she will think of another way of going about it which caters towards my learning style. She is a wonderful math tutor for all ages and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling with math and who wants to become more confident with it.

Very Professional, patient, and caring tutor!!

My daughter was getting 30's and 50's on her Physics exams. I had used the site for myself in the past, so I tried it again. Who would have known that I would have found such a great tutor, no, such a GREAT person. Cyndie and Nicole hit it off from the get-go; and it showed immediately. Nicole started getting B's on her exams, WOW, it was such a change. The way Cyndie explained things made it so much easier for Nicole to understand, far better than her school teacher, because of her tutoring style the two of them were able to work on two subjects during one session, half of the hour on Physics, and half of the hour on Algebra. It is because of Cyndie that Nicole passed her Physics course with a C... after getting all F's for half of the year. I wish we would have contacted her earlier, my name is Mike and I stand behind Cyndie 100%; you will not be unhappy with her.

great intro to SAT trig!

Cyndie reviewed SAT trigonometry. We only had time for one session so far, but it was right before the test and she nailed the material and presented in a clear and easily understood format. She is knowledgeable and pleasant, and I am looking forward to our next session.

Awesome Tutor!

Cyndie is an awesome tutor. She has credibility in geometry, she explains in detail and my daughter has more confidence in Geometry, thanks to Cyndie.
