Hi,
My name is Sue and I am a retired fifth grade school teacher. And I miss working with kids! I have two cats and two dogs (miniature long-haired dachshunds). I love animals and do volunteer work at a local animal shelter. I love teaching math most of all, but I do teach all elementary subjects, from third grade through eighth grade. My interests are reading, sailing, bike riding, visiting with friends, music. I love to sing. I have recently joined a volleyball team. (I'm not very good yet, but I'm sticking with it.) I would love to help you.

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.

Anthropology

I took anthropology classes in college and did very well in them. I have an abiding interest in anthropological issues. I tend to view current issues from an anthropological point of view. I am a retired fifth grade school teacher.

Elementary (K-6th)

All of my experience has been at the upper elementary level. I'v taken many "how to" classes over the years. 34 of them to be exact! Years, that is. I loved teaching math and spent a few years teaching gifted students. I love science as well. I also had lots of fun directing and producing musical productions with my students. I'm pretty good at facilitating small group discussions. My students also had the opportunity many times to compete in current events competition. We were even state champs one year.

Writing

My experience teaching fifth grade allows me to help students write effectively. I have prepared many students for the State writing test each year.
