About Cynthia

I am a retired teacher with over 10 years of international teaching experience. I have taught both History and English. I have lived overseas for many years and have just returned to the Richmond area. I have taught many different types of learners over the years and am able to adapt my lesson planning to the pace and style of learning preferred by the individual student. We all learn differently and at our own pace, knowing this enables me to tailor lessons to student needs.

I have two undergraduate degrees, a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University and a BA in History/Social Studies from Mary Baldwin. I have taught AP US History, Government, and IB World History. Writing is a critical component of any history course and teaching students to communicate clearly is a large part of my lessons. I have experience teaching English on the Middle School level and know how hard it can be for students to learn this vital skill.

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.

Social Studies

I was a full time licensed Social Studies teacher for the last 6 years. I have taught at both the High School and Middle School level. I am an AP US History Teacher and can coach the writing portion of the AP Test. I have taught overseas and can tutor IB History and IB English.
