I am a retired teacher. I tutor students ages 5-10 in all elementary subject areas. I have been doing online tutoring for 3 years. Currently, I am certrified through the Texas Education Agency for: Reading K-12, Elementary Education, and ESL K-12.
The enjoyment I receive from tutoring allows me to watch the progress of the students I am workimg with. Children develop at different stages. When one of my students finally understands a concept, and can incorportate it into their learning, it makes me smile.
My daughter liked Cindy immediately. Her style of teaching and compassionate nature was able to get through to my difficult 5yr old and got her to get to the 1st grade successfully..I wish i could have her all year.
I like to talk to the parent and get know a litrtle about their child. (i.e. educational needs, hobbies, activities, etc. I also like to talk with the teacher (if a teacher is involved) to make sure we are on the same page. If schoolwork is an issue, dialogue is important between parent, teacher and tutor. I will work to ensure there is ample communication between everyone. My goal is to help students achieve academic success.
I have been working in the area of reading for many years. I have had the opportunity to teach many struggling readers how to read and I have trained numerous teachers best practices of teaching reading techniques.
I usually use Venmo or Zelle as my method of payment,
