I have taught in Elementary, Middle and High School. I believe in "hands-on" learning. Learning should be fun, interesting and rewarding. Students learn when a teacher is enthusiastic about a subject and knowledgeable. I work from the student's needs and build on the subject in slow, steady increments.
I enjoy working with all kinds of students. I have worked in Gifted Education as well as Special Education.

Every child is special. Students can have learning styles and preferences. ...

Sylvia has impressed me and exceeded my expectations. I have never hired a tutor before and wasn?t sure what to expect. She is not only very patient and kind to my daughter )who is struggling in language arts) but she is also understanding of her learning needs and teaches in a way that is easier for her to understand. My daughter went into this with very little confidence due to her inability to understand and complete her work in school. She now is happier and more confident in her work. Her grades are improving and I can?t thank Sylvia enough for everything she?s done for her in just a few lessons. We?re beyond grateful for her and it?s wonderful as a mother to see that my daughter is excited to start her tutoring lessons. She?s showing that she genuinely loves to learn when the material is taught in a way that she can understand and enjoy.

Sylvia is working with my 6 year old on reading comprehension. She isn?t the first tutor we have used but she is the first he truly looks forward to seeing each week (online). Sylvia took time to connect with my son on his interests and sprinkles them into their lessons. Sylvia always has strategies for how to grow his skills and the energy and joy to make it all so fun.

Just the first day, my daughter had fun reading. Sylvia was very encouraging and she took her time to explain the little things. I'm looking forward top the outcome.

Ms. Sylvia is an outstanding educator who has provided my son the educational support he needs to get ahead in his studies. She has diverse teaching backgrounds for both GT and special education students and will use situational teaching to meet your child?s unique needs. My son enjoys the 1:1 sessions because the care she provides him by delivering meaningful feedback that is supportive and inspires improvement.

Great tutor with awesome techniques. She came with all kinds of different problems each time and different strategies to use on each. Sylvia tutored me for ACT prep and I couldn't be any more satisfied :)

Sylvia has been tutoring my son who is a senior preparing for ACT for nearly a month. She was able to quickly assess where he needed to most improve and is diligently teaching him testing strategies. Her years of experience as an educator and her dedication to teaching are quite evident!

I would just like to take the time to say what a wonderful tutor Sylvia was. This was my third attempt at trying to pass my thesis course for my masters. With her help I was able to achieve this goal and I will be receiving my Masters degree this weekend. She is patient with her students and takes the time assessing their weakness so that she may be better able to help them.

Sylvia C. is helping my nonnative English speaking wife to pass the GED. Sylvia breaks everything down to be easily understood. She gave my wife the confidence she needed to study for her GED assignments. My wife is very motivated and after each of her lessons she continues studying on her own and works at home with her GED workbook stress free. Sylvia gives my wife the self-assurance to do well one step at a time. I expect my wife to be able to keep up with her GED lessons and be able to pass the GED tests one at a time as a consequence. She always gives my wife very good suggestions on how to study and that help her to be motivated him to do more in the GED workbook in between lesions on her own. Sylvia is a Great Tutor. She is one of the best tutors because she always explained everything clearly and helped my wife to understand each topic. Moreover, she is very flexible when my wife had to ask her to move our schedule due to my work. Sylvia has been working with my wife to study for the GED and to get her English to be more fluent. She is always so attentive, she recognized all my wife?s issues and gave her very easy to understand yet important help to handle those issue them better. She is great in such that she already seems to know in advance what is needed by my wife and stays extra to help her until she understands the topic. Before working with Sylvia my wife was not confidant and her ability has grown. Sylvia has made studying for the GED it fun and easy. My wife has learned a lot in this relatively short time. It has been very easy and a great pleasure for my wife to communicate with Sylvia. My wife is extremely grateful to be able to study for the GED with Sylvia as her tutor.

Sylvia jumped right into the first tutoring session with my son. She was very positive, personable, and eager to get to know his style and needs. My son can?t wait for his next lesson. I?m excited to see the results in the upcoming weeks.

Sylvia is great with boys! She is working with math and reading with both of them. She is very patient, knowledgeable and most importantly she is compassionate about helping others! We love Mrs. Sylvia and highly recommend her!!
