About Susan

I am a veteran teacher of special education. I specialize in working with students who have learning difficulties, and have worked with students of all ages and abilities. I currently work at a charter school in Orange County, with students with learning disabilities, grades K - 5. I also recently worked for Lake County Schools as an ASD teacher, but the bulk of my work has been with students with mental handicaps. I am also available to work with your child on behavioral concerns, as I have a background in this.

I have tutored students in reading and writing, as well as Pre-algebra, Algebra 1, and Elementary Math.

I am very aware of the FCAT for elementary ages up to sixth grade, and can assist your student in preparing for this. Students whom I have tutored who had scored low the prior year made significant gains after working with me.

I also have a knack for making reading fun for students. Those who previously did not like to read for pleasure seem to develop a love for reading. I think that is important!

I just completed my masters degree in reading education. I hope to apply many of the techniques that I learn in class to my student sessions.

I am also available to provide tutoring via Skype or with Wyzant online if you are not in the immediate area, or even if you are! Just contact me to find out how.

In addition, I am available to home school parents who just need some ideas on where to find lessons. I can also provide you with weekly work so that you may spend your time working with your child. This would be a cost-saving measure for you and would make things so much easier.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with students with ADHD and ADD for several years, both in the classroom and in a tutoring, one on one setting. I feel that my experience with even the most severe students with attention deficits enables me to devise strategies that help to both motivate and overcome those difficulties.

Aspergers

I have worked with students with Aspergers for several years. Most of my experience is with students at the elementary level, but I have also worked with older students. I also provided training to parents of those students with Aspergers, and to teachers and other professionals who work with these students as well.

Autism

I worked as a teacher of students with autism for many years. Most recently, I worked in a self-contained classroom with those students who have Aspergers and PDD. I feel that my experience and success with these students makes me an excellent tutor for them.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with children with special needs in the classroom setting for the past 20 years. I have experience teaching those with learning disabilities, autism, behavior disorders, mental retardation, and physical handicaps. I have a state of Florida teaching certificate in Exceptional Student Education grades K-12 and am certified in Elementary Education grades K-6. In addition, I have tutored all types of students from those needing a little help and prep for the FCAT, to those who have significant learning issues.

Phonics

I have worked with students will special needs for over twenty years. I specialize in those with reading difficulties. I have tutored many elementary students in reading and have had great success turning struggling readers into proficient readers who love to read. I have used several reading programs including SRA, Storytown, Earobics, and Headsprout.

Reading

I am currently working on my master's degree in reading education. I look forward to applying the skills gained from class to my tutoring sessions.

I have been very successful in raising reading levels quite significantly, and have helped students who did not pass FCAT in the past to acquire passing scores.

Special Needs

I am certified K-12 in exceptional education in Florida. I have been a special education teacher for over twenty years. My specialty is working with students with low incidence disabilities and those with autism. I am a graduate of Florida State University and studied Mental Retardation.

We love Susan! Great tutor. — Susan is such a patient teacher. She really communicates and relates extraordinarily well with my son. I feel she cares very deeply about her students and has a real passion for teaching. We hired Susan to help our 5th grade son.
