About Cynthia

*2016 UPDATE*~ I am now a December 2014 college graduate with a B.A. in Psychology and a Minor in History. I am also currently in an Alternative Teaching Certification program, with Social Studies grades 7-12 and ESL Supplemental concentrations/content certifications.

STUDENTS-Hey guys! I'm Cynthia and I'd love to be your tutor. I'll help get you to where you need to be and we'll have fun doing it! I can help you with American history, music, spelling, reading, you name it. I know that everyone learns differently, so if you aren't understanding it in the classroom, then I'll help you understand it at home. I'm just an email and phone call away.

PARENTS-I have a younger brother with ADHD and I have ADHD and as such, I can tutor and help your children if they have that disorder using methods that worked with my brother and I, as well as methods that I have researched. I have a background in music. I was a member of the Weslaco High School Panther Corps. as a Clarinet player and as a middle school student I was a part of the North Texas Children's Chorale (NTCC). I was also was in my middle school's spelling bee and made it to Regionals. I had a job at my brothers' elementary school and helped students with their coursework. I also have a certificate in substitute teaching. I will lead your student where they need to be and will make sure they have the best understanding of the material as possible.

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 a younger brother with ADHD whom I have helped with his schoolwork in the past, and I myself have ADD.

Clarinet

I have been playing the clarinet since I was twelve. When I first started, I received private lessons for the first year of learning to play the clarinet. I was also a member of the Weslaco High School Panther Corps.

Spanish

I am a native Spanish speaker, and I have lived in the Rio Grande Valley for a majority of my life, therefore being surrounded by the Spanish language all my life.
