American English Language Extraordinaire
Cynthia helps people with their English. People say that they enjoy working with her. She knows this because she asks them, and they tell her.
Cynthia is an American originally from the New England state of New Hampshire. She has lived in Sweden since 2000 and has worked full-time as a professional general and business English trainer and consultant for a number of language companies in the Stockholm area.
She earned her Bachelors of Science in Communication Disorders from Boston University and a Masters of Arts in Audiology/Hearing Sciences from Northwestern University in the Chicago area. She worked in the medical field in the US for five years before moving to Stockholm. She is certified in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (CTEFL) and Teaching Business English (CTBE). She also speaks French fluently due to being brought up in a bilingual household (her mother is from Quebec, Canada) and is proficient in Swedish. She started Cyntactic in 2004.
In her free time, she enjoys improvisational comedy and acting. She is an advanced student performer and teacher at ITS (International Theater Stockholm). She also knows her way around designing a website (she has put this one together herself).
(Cynthia also really likes ice cream and cats and has a hard time maintaining talking about myself in the third person.)
