My name is Susie and I have had many experiences with teaching and tutoring students from ages 8-20: I tutored math to 3rd grade students; taught 11th and 12th graders a business course; taught creative writing to high school students in Ghana; and tutored an Afghan student English and writing to prepare her for her TOEFL exam.
I am a graduate of Bentley University. I graduated as a President's Academic Scholar with a major in Accounting. I've taken Managerial Accounting, Financial Accounting and Reporting I & II, Cost Management, Auditing, and Federal Taxation. I took honors Algebra I and II in high school and also took various math classes while in college. I also graduated with a minor in Spanish.
I lived and studied in Spain for 6 months, where I developed fluency in Spanish. I've taken several Spanish courses throughout high school and college. I also took all my courses in Spanish while studying abroad in Spain.
As for the SATs, I am a certified Princeton Review teacher. I scored above 700 in my SAT subjects. Tutoring the SATs is fun and I enjoy explaining things to students in a way that would cater to them.
I have studied the violin since I was 5 years old. I have received various honors on New York State-wide playing tests. I have also played in the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra and Children's Orchestra Society. I was the principal violinist for my middle and high school orchestras. I would love to be able to bring joy, music, and life to a child by teaching him/her how to play the violin. Teaching music would not be work for me; rather, a playful learning experience. I believe that at a young early age, creativity and "right brain" development is crucial to foster.
I would like to combine my love for music and my love for teaching and working with children.
Please contact me if you would like any more information about me. I am also flexible with my schedule.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
In high school, I took all honors and AP level courses. On all NYS Regents Exams I scored above a 95 (U.S. History, Global History, Spanish, Physics, Chemistry, Living Environment, Mathematics B, Algebra, etc.)
I have played violin since I was 5 years old.
I was trained with the Suzuki Method and completed all levels of Suzuki by age 10.
When I was an elementary school student, I played with the middle school orchestra.
Since elementary school, I was concert mistress and principal violinist of my elementary, middle, and high school orchestras.
I was nominated to play in the NYSSMA Festival (New York State School Music Association), the All-County Orchestra, and the Long Island String Festival. I was nominated and accepted based on my performance on state-wide playing tests and teacher recommendations.
I have scored 99%-100% on the highest level state-wide performance tests for 10 years.
I auditioned and was accepted to play in various orchestras in New York--including the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra and the Children's Orchestra Society (co-founded by the sibling of Yo-Yo Ma).
I would love to teach violin to children to bring out the soul that music touches in everybody's lives. I have had many experiences with tutoring and recently decided to teach violin because of my passion in music and of my patience in teaching students.
