All of Suzanne’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Suzanne’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 1

I have many years of experience tutoring Algebra and believe that a mastery of this subject is essential for future success in math. I enjoy working with students at this math level because it is rewarding for me to see improvements in their grades and pertinent to set a strong foundation in the concepts that will be utilized later in their academic ventures.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is one of the math subjects that I have the most experience tutoring. I found that breaking down difficult concepts using a step by step approach provides students with the understanding and confidence necessary to apply their newfound knowledge to more challenging questions. Because Algebra 2 involves concepts that require knowledge from previous math classes, I ensure that students have a strong background in those more basic concepts before tackling more complex concepts.

Biology

As a graduate from UCSD with a degree in Human Biology, one of my main passions is tutoring students on the many fascinating aspects of biology. As a recent graduate from USC with a Masters degree in Global Medicine, I was required to take biology classes at the medical school level where I performed at the top of my class in each course. Therefore, I have a very strong background in biology and enjoy helping students discover the intriguing workings of the world of science!

Elementary Math

The key to tutoring elementary math is to be patient and encouraging. I try to engage students and make the concepts interesting by giving real life examples.

Geometry

After tutoring all math subjects from pre-algebra to calculus I have noticed that most students struggle because they did not understand a certain concept the first time or it was not taught properly. Therefore, the next lesson they are given in that subject seems even more challenging. I will help you understand the concepts that you are struggling with and catch you up so that you can excel in your geometry class.

Study Skills

Although every student has specific study needs, the study habits that he or she gains now will last a lifetime. In order to help make schoolwork feel manageable, I believe that it is important to build on the things that each student already does well, and consistently practice new habits until they become second nature. Before I became a Teaching Assistant for college biology at UCSD, I was required to complete a course that trained me on how to identify the type of learner that a student is and recommend the best study techniques for his or her individual learning needs. Also, my experience as a note-taker at UCSD significantly improved my note-taking skills and that experience has given me several strategies that I can pass along to my students. Whether a student needs help creating a study routine, taking effective notes, becoming an independent learner, or getting organized, I can help instill the necessary tools to succeed at any grade level.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
