Stem Tutoring chemistry

"After witnessing Cindy’s work firsthand

(many of my students have been tutored by her) for many years, I can honestly say she is worth every penny invested in her services. She’s great at working with students who have large gaps in their understanding because she gets them back on track and up to speed. She communicates well with the teacher and tries to get to the bottom of why her students haven’t been successful without extra assistance so they won’t need to rely on a tutor forever. She helps with test-taking strategies, confidence building and has helped improve every student she’s ever worked with. Cindy is truly a life-saver for students, parents and teachers!”

"My tutor’s two greatest strengths

would be his extensive knowledge of the course material and how he explains concepts to his students. The way he explains these concepts helps them think but also helps them get the right answer with guidance."

From the Parents

Richie showed endless patience and support when our son was overwhelmed with the load of work, and gently but firmly helped our son to build self-confidence to deal with a subject that was very challenging to him. I have to say that, so far, we have not met a young tutor who, in addition to being a subject matter expert, is also so attuned to very specific needs of a student with special needs and skilled to address them over a short period of time. After working with him for a year, we consider Richie to be more than a tutor; he is an important member of our son’s educational team and support network.

My son benefits greatly from one-on-one instruction, and you do a great job of breaking down the concepts into manageable parts for him.

Cindy has great energy and quickly understands her student's preferred learning style and pace. I highly recommend her as she knows the material, is clear on the specific manner which chemistry is taught at the high school and is great at working with kids. She knows when to push and when the student is ready to be more independent. I feel this is critical as she does not allow them to become overly dependent.

— Bellevue High School Parent

 

Our daughter gained confidence in her abilities and therefore was less intimidated by the material. She learned where to focus her time and what parts of the chemistry course were important to understand in greater depth. I felt she saved time and was more efficient due to our tutor’s guidance.

You were great. You related very well to my girls and helped them tremendously. My girls really enjoyed their time with you.  They were always grateful for the help.

If I were approached by another parent whose child was not doing well in school, I would definitely recommend STEM tutoring.

—  Newport High School Parent

 

Our son is able to focus on his work more. He also has someone to be accountable to for getting his work done. It also gives him a sense of security knowing there is someone available to explain the material to him.

Cindy is an excellent tutor. She really cares about her students and their progress. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a tutor.

Our tutor knowing the curriculum and materials as taught was a huge benefit.

— Bellevue High School Parent

 

Our tutor knows her chemistry and is kind and sensitive. I think sensitivity to all levels and encouraging kids where they are, helping them know they can do great is important.

— Bellevue High School Parent

 

Our tutor cares deeply for my son. She is supportive, organized and has incredible instructional skills.

— Newport High School Parent

 

My son’s attitude and confidence improved greatly after he started working with his you. You have been very upbeat and caring.

— Bellevue High School Parent

 

You have shown genuine concern for my child’s academic performance and well-being. This is definitely one of your greatest strengths.

From the Students

A lot of times my week begins by me “learning a concept” in class and being completely confused until Wednesday when I could clarify with you.

— Bellevue High School Student

 

My tutor is an amazing listener and knows when I'm not at my highest point and she also knows my weakest areas and makes sure to touch up on them so I understand the concept anyway.  I would definitely recommend her because she has helped me through everything whether it is outside of school or inside.

— Newport High School Student

 

She is a great tutor and she can really help you. Biology is very confusing and she explained it in a way that I could understand.

-— Issaquah High School Student

 

I felt more confident when I was taking the tests. My tutor also didn't get annoyed when I asked about specific ideas multiple times.

— Bellevue High School Student

 

I would say that she is the reason I understand most of the concepts in chem, and I would have not done nearly as well without her.

— Bellevue High School Student

 

My tutor helped me in class and also helped me learn “how to learn.”

— Seattle Prep School Student

 

She gives good info, helps you learn, and does it fast too.

— Bellevue High School Student

 

I feel like I have someone I can talk to no matter how I'm feeling.  Also I feel that my tutor is very slow and takes time to learn the concepts to my pace and liking.

— Newport High School Student

 

You should go to her if you don’t get Chemistry.

— Bellevue High School Student

 

You were able to teach different chemistry topics effectively and in a fun way.
