Dr. Cynthia Parker
Ms. Parker has always loved reading and was happy as a college student. While studying at Connecticut College, she honed her love of music and double majored in English and music. That preparation led to graduate study in comparative literature, both at the University of Washington/Seattle and at Indiana University/Bloomington, but completion of degrees did not allay her love of learning. She dabbled in several new fields, including cognitive psychology and its insights into the writing process. Ultimately, she decided to study Chinese and spent a year with AFS in Shanghai, an experience that taught her what it is like to be a poor student. Since then, she has devoted herself to helping students who have trouble reading and writing as well as students who want exploratory discussion to enhance their writing. She has spent many years working with students who have visual impairments, and for several years she tutored at Fordham University's special program for academically challenged freshmen, continuing work with many of them through their four years of undergraduate study.
