Hi. My name is Susyn. I have been a tutor for over 20 years. I tutor elementary, middle school, high school, collegiate and adult students.
I received my bachelor's degree in economics
from the University of Colorado, and I was a teaching assistant while there. I am also an MBA candidate at UC-Irvine with expected graduation in 2016.
, life sciences, history
, and SAT
and ACT test preparation
are my specialties, I have well-rounded knowledge in several subjects and topics. Other topics that I tutor include clarinet
, economics, accounting
, resume and interview preparation skills, study skills
, personal management and computers (general computers, Mac and MS Office - Word, Excel
and Access). I also tutor elementary school subjects like reading
I like to break things down into the smallest components and build them back up - it's the easiest and most fun way to learn. And I am eager and ready to help you gain confidence and knowledge so you become a master student and test taker. I also guarantee the student a minimum of a one grade increase if the student follows the tutor program.
I have a very flexible schedule and will work around your schedule to accommodate you.
Please note I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel in less than 24 hours, I am willing to give you a credit to be used for a makeup session if scheduled within 3 days.
I look forward to working with you.
