I am a fun tutor who has degrees in neuroscience and microbiology. I am currently a Ph.D. student in emerging infectious diseases. I love science, and I have been tutoring for over seven years now. I have worked primarily with test prep, including MCAT, SAT, ACT, and GRE. However, I also love working with students of all ages. I am very flexible. I have experience tutoring students with ADHD and dyslexia as well as students with general learning difficulties.
In addition to test prep, I enjoy tutoring biology, math, history, and English. I have experience tutoring at all grade levels and at a collegiate level. My schedule is extremely flexible, and I can tutor during the day, as well as on evenings and weekends.

I am negotiable on my rate if multiple hours are required. Please message me to discuss. I also offer group rates.
Cynthia was tutoring my daughter to prepare for ACT. She is a great teacher, punctual, organized, flexible, knowledgeable and reliable. She took the charge and came up with the plan for my daughter's prep. This was my daughter's first time taking ACT. With Cynthia's guidance, she got decent score. My daughter is planning to take ACT second time to improve her score as she will have more time to practice in summer and we plan to get Cynthia back to guide her.
My daughters really liked working with Cynthia to prep for the SAT. She was knowledgeable about how to approach the test in all areas, but also could focus on math. She is friendly, flexible, and patient. We'll definitely call her again if needed for the ACT or AP classes, or to help with college app essays.
Cynthia has started tutoring my daughter Molly in math. Molly has a unique learning style and has difficulty understanding math. Cynthia recognized how Molly learns right away, and after just one lesson, Molly is already feeling more confident. Can't say enough good things ....look forward to seeing ongoing progress and rising grades !
Cynthia was fabulous. Our daughter's SAT scores went up 180 points after spending 2+ months with her. We are extremely pleased!
Cynthia is a wonderful tutor. My daughter really likes her and she has helped with both Chemistry and Precalculus. I know that Cynthia will be a big help in my daughter's understanding on both of these subjects.
Cynthia was helping me prepare for the math portion of the GRE. She was very patient, and explained each problem in detail. She gave me many useful tips when taking the test that I wouldn't have otherwise known. She was brilliant!!
Cynthia taught effective test-taking techniques that helped my daughter do much better on the SAT II Math I Test. She clearly cares about her students and relates with them well!
Cynthia makes you feel at ease and knows her stuff. She provides many good strategies for the GRE. Great tutor.
Cynthia is wonderful and dependable! She arrives on time and my 17 year old feels he is much more prepared for his SAT test! We are so happy we went this route over the large SAT prep classes held at school!
Cynthia is always on time, patient and very knowledgeable while tutoring my 17 year old for her upcoming ACT test. I have been very pleased and would highly recommend her.
Cynthia developed a good rapport with our son. She was very focused on the areas that needed development and the sessions were productive. Cynthia was efficient, pleasant and very accommodating of our son’s schedule. We would use her again.
Cynthia is an outstanding tutor. She is tutoring my son for the SAT and SAT subject tests. Cynthia has an easy way of teaching. She knows the material and makes it easy to grasp. We appreciate her patience and positive manner. She takes the anxiety out of these exams and provides confidence instead.
My son worked with Cynthia for several one hour sessions and she was able to identify his weakness and provide immediate strategies for improving his ACT score. She reinforced those strategies with meaningful examples and also followed up by giving my son an assignment for the following week. She was thoughtful and knew how to motivate and connect with my child. Cynthia was prompt in her arrival to my home and stayed beyond the allotted time. I'm happy I had chosen Cynthia to work with my child to prepare for the ACT.
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.
I have worked in the admissions office of Furman University and closely with the admissions program at Clemson University. I also have worked with HS students applying to college for over 5 years now, allowing me insight into both sides of the admissions process. I consider myself well versed in both the application process and the application review process.
While I am numerically dyslexic, my husband is truly dyslexic. Both of us have successfully overcome this disability to be extremely successful in our fields. I have worked with many dyslexic students, specifically on test prep for SAT and ACT and met with great success.
Not only have I taken the GRE with excellent results (I recently took the new GRE and scored a 170 in verbal and a 166 in Math), but I have also tutored students for the test for over 5 years now. I enjoy working with students to teach them how to take the test. I am knowledgeable about the subjects on the test, as well as the strategies needed to excel.
I have worked with MCAT students for 3 years now, preparing them for this difficult test. My strengths are preparing for the verbal and writing sections, but I have also worked with students on the biological sciences section. I do not feel comfortable tutoring the Physics or Organic Chemistry sections.
Being a child who constantly got in trouble for talking, public speaking seemed a natural for me. However, I still had to overcome my own brand of stage nervousness. Therefore, I feel uniquely qualified to look at both the speaking and the nervousness associated with it to be the best tutor for an anxious student.
I have been tutoring the SAT for over 7 years now. I was trained to teach the test by a test prep company, and since then, I have evolved my own strategies based on the success of my students. I always endeavor to take into consideration the learning styles and strengths of my students when tutoring, so each tutorial is different, based on the needs of the student.
