Cecilia Barowski

Born and raised in southern New Hampshire, Cecilia attended Bishop Guertin High School.

I have recently garnered an interest in psychology after beginning to tutor students preparing for the SAT/ACT. Tailoring information and motivation for each student keeps teaching the same material challenging and interesting.
