I have been a Latin teacher since 1970. I have a B.A. in Latin from Southern Illoinois University and an M.A. in Classics from the University of Washington. I taught high school Latin for 15 years. I have been very successful as a Latin tutor, teaching methods for translation that work. I am prepared to teach grammar, translation, vocabulary building, Roman culture and history. My teaching methods make Latin not only palatable but enjoyable. My goal is that the student will feel and enjoy a success and confidence that will spread into other subjects. I have also taught Latin to middle school students and a few 4th and 5th grade students. I use materials that are very accessible, fun, and interesting to all students. I have also taught American Literature, composition, vocabulary skills, and basic math.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

In the mid 90's I was tutored by a specialist in the teaching of phonics; particularly those children with learning disabilities. In the 90's I tutored K-6 students in my home for math and reading. We've worked on math using a number of strategies, such as flashcards and math games. We also have worked on word recognition appropriate to the particular student's grade
level. We have worked on phonics with practice in all the vowel and syllable sounds
and on various reading strategies. We read stories that are both entertaining and educational.

Study Skills

Tutoring STUDY SKILLS involves practice at
taking note of the first sentence of each
paragraph and turning it into a question. It involves highlighting main points. It involves puzzling, out loud, through a math word problem. I have worked one-on-one with students doing these and additional activities
since the mid-seventies, in the high school
classroom and in my home as a private tutor.

Awesome! — Susan is great! She is understanding, knowledgeable, and organized. I spent only a few sessions with her, but she had a large impact on me and how I prepared for my exam. Susan was worth the drive and I plan on using her in the future for my daughter. ...
