I am a certified teacher in New York state, as well as a teacher trainer. My experience includes tutoring children, including those with learning differences, and young adults for around ten years. My students consistently make progress and succeed measurably with my help. My location is in upper Westchester County, but I can travel to you or to another meeting point. I offer online tutoring as well.
When tutoring in math
, I use the Singapore approach, which has been proven to be most effective in teaching number sense and problem solving. It helps students develop critical thinking skills. When I tutor, I don't tell students what to think, but I lead them to be able to think for themselves.
Subjects I tutor:
• Any elementary/middle school subject
• Any English
subject through college, including ESL
• Essay writing
• Standardized test success, including SAT
, LAST, and teacher tests
• A variety of computer
• Hebrew language
Some testimonials from other students and their families:
"Susan is an intelligent, bright and willing tutor. I have found her to be a great resource in my education. We have been working together for almost three years now, and I have seen how much working with her has helped me to improve in the subjects we work on together. I have also witnessed first hand the many different ways she can work a subject. If one way does not work, she can and is willing to try a different approach that best works for you."
