About Cy


I value learning. While I enjoy passing my knowledge to others, I especially enjoy inspiring others to love to learn as well. For every student, I seek to provide a balance of work that is both challenging and rewarding. The goal is improvement.

I have spent many years teaching and tutoring students of all ages - from elementary school to high school. I specialize in teaching writing. As a published writer (newspapers, magazines, and numerous online publications) I can help with essays, statements of purpose, vocabulary, SATs, and GREs, and literature. I am aware that different students learn differently, and I pride myself on being able to cater my tutoring style to meet student's individual learning needs.

As a recent recipient of a master's in science, I also enjoy teaching biology, ecology, and environmental science. I pride myself on being able to communicate complicated concepts in clear, understandable terms.

I hold myself to a high standard. I never charge for a lesson in which a student or parent is not satisfied with my tutoring. I also ask for feedback so that I can improve as a tutor and help students get the most out of their sessions.

I am very flexible as far as meeting times and places. I am free most afternoons (after 4:30pm) and weekends. I am comfortable meeting in cafes, libraries, or other locations convenient for the student.

I look forward to hearing from you and to helping you improve in your studies!

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.
