I have extensive experience in all levels of Spanish, with eight years in two private High Schools, teaching Spanish 1-4, AP and Dual Credit. As an Adjunct Professor at Texas Wesleyan University, I taught three levels of Spanish. My academic credentials include a Master of Arts degree in National Security Affairs / Latin America Studies from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and graduation with honors in Spanish at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA. In order to further my Spanish proficiency, I attended the Don Quixote Institute of Languages Superintensivo Program in Guanajuato, Mexico.
My strong passion for teaching Spanish to all age groups has resulted in my integrating multiple complementary techniques to reach the student. Through incorporating a wide variety of materials to aid in the learning process, I make learning a foreign language less intimidating. I want my students to have both a solid foundation and the comfort to enjoy Spanish.

Cynthia is very educated and talented in teaching Spanish. She has helped my daughter improve her Spanish grade tremendously. She is on time, dependable, organized and comes prepared for each session. My daughter has enjoyed working with her and looks forward to it. I would recommend Cynthia as a tutor for anyone learning Spanish or trying to improve their grade.
We have used Cynthia for my daughter's Spanish tutoring for about 6 weeks now and only have good things to say about her. This past week, they worked on a school project together and my daughter felt very prepared for it. Cynthia is always on time for the sessions and doesn't waste any time getting to work. I plan on utilizing her for long term tutoring and give my highest recommendation.
Cynthia, is a very patient & systematic teacher. She has a way of getting the subject across without difficulty. The method she uses are very easy to understand. My son who once hated Spanish is now using short phrases & even trying to converse with his friends in Spanish
Cynthia is a fantastic tutor. She instills confidence in her students by using multiple teaching tools to gain understanding of difficult concepts. She discovers what interests her students, then finds ways to incorporate these interests into her teaching. Our student went from being insecure with a complete lack of confidence in Spanish to now being a Spanish tutor at her school! While we are excited our student's grades have improved, we most value the fact that our student now believes she has an aptitude for foreign languages and is eager to learn. We have Cynthia to thank for this significant turnaround. We highly recommend Cynthia!
Cynthia started working with my two kids last September. I have been amazed how she was able to teach so many things in a highly engaging manner. My son is not an easy student (5 years old) and can not sit quiet and focused. Cynthia has been extremely patient, and at the same time, kept finding creative ways to keep my son engaged. My son and daughter love taking Spanish lessons because they are a source of a lot of fun and learning for them. I think Cynthia is a very unique tutor. She is not the kind of person who follows her agenda firmly for the lesson; she goes with the flow and masterfully accomplishes learning objectives. She is always well prepared and professional. I would highly highly recommend Cynthia as a Spanish tutor. We will miss her.
I have been working with Cynthia for about a month, and I am very pleased with the progress that we have made so far. Cynthia is bright, professional and dedicated. All of these traits make her a great instructor. Cynthia not only possesses the important traits that I previously listed, but she is also a great listener. She listens to the questions that I ask as a student and she does her best to give me clear and helpful answers. If you are looking for a top-notch Spanish instructor who truly cares about her students, I highly recommend Cynthia.
Cynthia has a uncanny ability to break down lessons to help me understand the material. I was impressed with her level of preparation for each session. She comes ready to target the areas that are needed with a variety of reading and writing material.
I also appreciate her ability to incorporate different styles of learning. Cynthia created visual representations through charts as well as movements to help me grasp the grammatical rules that I had been struggling with. She is a funny and witty tutor that will keep tutoring lessons engaging and meaningful. Glad to have found a dedicated and professional tutor to help me learn to write Spanish.
Ms. H is very helpful for my son's honor Spanish class. She is always prepared, very patient and thorough. My son enjoyed her class a lot and we would recommend her to any kids who need help or advance performance in class.
Great Spanish tutor. Interacts well with students. Encourages and motivates students to a higher level. My daughter's has regained her confidence in Spanish after working with Cynthia. Very punctual and dependable!
Cynthia has been very flexible in helping my daughter with her non-traditionally taught Spanish class. I have really appreciated the foundation she has given our daughter to better understand and complete her Spanish 3 assignments.
Cynthia has been a wonderful tutor for my daughter who struggled with high school Spanish. Cynthia has always been very easy to book, responds quickly to emails, and extremely prompt. We are very pleased.
My 17 yr old son has struggled in Spanish II all year and it had taken a huge chunk out of his self esteem and his GPA. He has tutored with his teacher all year with no change to his understanding. Just after the first session with Cynthia H. he has made huge improvements. She tutored him on Monday evening and he had a quiz on Thursday and a test on Friday of the same week. I am proud to say he passed his quiz and his test. When I asked my son what does he think made the difference he said "my tutor" with a big smile on his face! He has worked with Cynthia for 3 weeks now and has brought his grade by five points. Tests and quizzes are 63% of the grade so improving his test grades have made a huge difference. We have seen such a relief in our son and a gain in his self esteem. We are beyond thrilled we found Cynthia!
Cynthia has been teaching my two young daughters Spanish for a month now and she is awesome with them. They really enjoy her sessions and they are learning a lot. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing lessons. We are so glad we chose her.
Cynthia is a fabulous tutor. My son was struggling with Spanish before she walked into his life. She is always on time, very organized, and always replies promptly to texts and emails. She has taught Spanish at various levels (Ms to high school to college). She knew the text that my son was using (Vistas). She even comes prepared with paper for notes.
A wonderful teacher! I would recommend her if you are struggling with Spanish in school or work.
I find Cynthia to be very well organized and very well prepared. She knows what she wants to accomplish with the lesson and knows how to get to that point. She put a lot of information out there during the first class and was patient with us as we tried to understand and learn the points she was trying to teach. I feel she has been an excellent choice for our company.
I am so impressed with Cynthia. She not only is extremely good at teaching Spanish but she is very organized and comes prepared for each and every lesson. Prior to leaving each session she peruses the next chapter coming up so that she can bring relevant materials to the next session. She is such a delight to work with and she is so patient with my ADD son. He enjoys working with her and has recommended her to others. We feel very fortunate to have found her!
Cynthia is a very experienced, highly dedicated and energetic teacher. She was able to boost my son's grade within a week using all kind of memory boosters. She is excellent at teaching Spanish. We are so glad we found her and plan to keep her for the next few years until high school graduation.
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.
My professional credentials in the Spanish language span three decades. As an Air Force officer in the 1980s, I was a specialist in Latin American intelligence, performing English-to-Spanish and Spanish-to-English translation services. I received a Master's degree in Latin America Studies from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, and I graduated with honors from the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA. Later I attended the Don Quixote Institute of Languages, Guanajuato, Mexico, attaining "advanced C1" level in their superintensivo course. During the past decade, I have been teaching all levels of Spanish in several private high schools and at a university. My teaching style includes a mix of technical grammar comprehension and immersion drills. I integrate a variety of techniques (visual aids, sound aids, animation, hands-on, verbal and nonverbal activities) to ensure complete understanding of the specific concepts.
