I couldn't even say enough words to express my gratitude. I found Susan when I was ready to throw in the towel and say forget it. As an older college student with a fear of math I can only tell you, if you are overwhelmed and need a tutor who is calm, patient and supportive, you found her!!!
She sincerely tries to help the students and accommodates fairly well with the timings. I'd recommend her to students up to Algebra and not beyond that.
Susan is such a patient and great teacher. She always knows how to relate the hard information in a way that I can understand it.
Susan was very helpful during the winter break. She helped my daughter with her pre-calculus assignment. She is very knowledgeable and spent quality time with my daughter. She was exactly what we needed. She is great and patient! Susan is indeed an excellent tutor.
Susan is very flexible and dependable. My son needed help over the holidays with math and Susan was willing and able to help him. Math has been a struggle for him and she has explained Algebra 2 to him in a way that he understands. It is so wonderful, as a mom, to see the light turn on for him. My only regret is I didn't call her sooner to help us. Thank You Susan.
Susan is very patient and goes through each problem step by step. She will also take the time to explain the steps and will even draw graphs or charts to illustrate. It was a big help to me to have the problems worked out on paper rather than view the power point slide in the classroom. I was having anxiety over the upcoming exam prior to seeing Susan, now I feel more at ease.
Not all kids learn the same. Susan recognizes this and adapts her lesson coaching to the needs of her students, and it pays off. My student is more confident in his abilities and his grades are proof that Susan's methods work. Thank you Susan!
I spent 2 hours going over Statistics with Susan and frankly she's a lovely person who knows her stuff, but spends the time going into too much detail, instead of "keeping it simple". I was hoping for a tutor that would engage me into the learning process, by my participation, not just more of a lecture.
I always offer the 1st hour free and the student is welcome to end the session at that point. Not every person is a match with every tutor. If you are a non-confrontational person like me, who doesn't want to say 'hey this isn't working for me' right to someone's face -- then just pull out the polite lie like grabbing your phone from your pocket and take a fake call, 'oh so sorry I have a family emergency I need to take care of' and end the session. I do not want to waste either of our time if things aren't working. I can certainly relate to the want to 'keep it simple'-- and if I could find a way to make stats simple I'd be a genius. Sorry, no matter how much we would like it to be ... it is not simple.
My daughter's least favorite subject used to be math. She didn't only dislike it, but she was intimidated by it so much that it actually affected her grade. My husband and I would spend time trying to explain it to her, we helped her out with her homework, but unfortunately, this did not make much of a difference. We finally made the decision to hire a tutor, so we found Susan through WyzAnt. It has been approximately 7 months, and not only is our daughter liking math, but she has been recommended by her math teacher to algebra honors. Needless to say, math is her new favorite subject. We are so happy to have Susan in her life. She is a great & patient tutor.
You have indeed been an excellent tutor. I may not have rated you every single time we've had sessions but it is widely appreciated.
Explanations are clear and easy to follow. Easy to reach by phone, email, skype, etc. Helped me a lot and I'm forward to talking to her again.
Susan is very well versed in many subjects, and is one of those few very good tutors who knows how to teach a student what they need to know. I have had many different tutors who knew their stuff, but could not teach it to me in a way that actually made sense. Before my tutoring session with Susan, I was averaging a score of 285 on my practice GRE exams. After just one session, I took the GRE and received a 295. That is a pretty remarkable improvement for someone who could not remember one iota of her algebra!
Susan is the real deal and got my wife through her stats with an 'A' when 2 weeks earlier she had almost been going into meltdown and thinking of quitting her degree course. There are a lot of unscrupulous people out there that will take the test for you if you are completely divorced from integrity. Susan doesn't do that she just makes sure you understand the material and get through it yourself. Highly recommended.
I have used Susan on two occasions now and have been very pleased with the sessions. She really cares that you learn and does an excellent job explaining the material. I recently started working on my degree in computer science and I am glad that I found Susan early in my studies. I plan to keep using her anytime I need help. She is a very kind person and easy to talk to. She is well qualified and knowledgeable of many subjects and it shows. Some people know the material and have a hard time explaining it or teaching it, not Susan.
Susan is an excellent java tutor. She explains java programming so the student understands how to type java and how to determine what they are doing wrong. Susan is very patient and knowledgeable. Thanks to Susan I have an understanding of Java and I passed the course.
I was having a hard time finding a tutor for my STATS class. I was so happy when I found WyzAnt. I was totally freaked out because I thought I was going to fail my STATS class. I was already 2 weeks into the class without a clue of what was going on and what I was doing. Then I found Susan. Susan is a GREAT Tutor. She is patient, helpful, and actually tries to help you understand concepts. She teaches better than my professor and I would definitely recommend her to EVERYONE who takes a STATS class to defiantly use Susan as their Tutor. My grades went from a C to an A. SHE’S THE BEST!!!
Very patient and knowledgeable, time flew by learning with her. She started from basic beginning and where I got lost in details, she reviewed material and found alternate words to help me understand, thanks!
Susan is a tutor who takes the time and has pride in teaching! Thanks to her I passed my statistics test!
Here are the important points about my tutoring experience with Susan. First, with her help I went from failing to A's and B's in my first math class (PreAlgebra). Second, I got a B in college-level Algebra, after having so much trouble in 'preAlgebra'. Next, I continued with Susan through my third math class (statistics), which I also passed! The fact that I continued on with Susan as my tutor through three semesters of math classes shows that I think she has helped me a lot. Thanks again!
