Cynthia grew up in Calgary, and moved to Toronto almost 10 years ago. She studied at McGill University receiving a Bachelors Degree in Economics and Finance. She’s spent her entire career working in commercial real estate, working in both lending and development.
Her interest in teaching started since she went to university- tutoring for a private company in Calgary during her summer’s back from school, and eventually in Toronto for Prep Academy.
Cynthia really enjoys the collaboration between student, parent and teacher and the witnessing the progress made in each student she teaches. Much like the relationships she fosters in her daily 9-5, she brings the same energy, excitement, and trust with her to students and their families. She strives to ensure that her students come out of the sessions more confident, and interested in the material.
