About Cynthia

A few years ago I started looking for a volunteer situation where I might provide a service to the community. That search brought me to Peninsula Reads which is a 45 year old organization dedicated to education. I am now an ESOL tutor where the majority of my students are Japanese engineers. I found that I love teaching.

When I came across WyzAnt it seemed like the perfect next step. Now I could teach one-on-one!

I can alter my lesson to meet my students immediate needs. They often bring real world questions for the entire class to discuss. Flexibility is very important in teaching.

I learned to read phonetically so I teach the way I learned. And if you read phonetically, you can spell almost any word.

I find that as I teach, I learn. So let's learn together! I promise to make it rewarding and fun.
