Hi, my name is Susan.
My teaching background is varied and has given me a wide scope of experiences. This makes me flexible and able to adapt to the unique needs of the students I tutor. I have taught special needs students (including hearing impaired and those with mental and and emotional disabilities). I have also taught in regular and mainstream classrooms. In addition, I home schooled my two children through high school. This gave me the opportunity to serve as an educational consultant to over 300 home school families where I helped parents create a curriculum tailored to their child's unique needs.
I approach teaching by building a relationship with the student, finding out her or his interests, passions, and learning style. Then I create a path for learning that will ignite the interest of the student with a sense of curiosity and adventure. Parents are an important part of tutoring, and I am skilled at supporting parents as they help their child find success in the learning process.
As a classroom teacher, I taught elementary math, reading, spelling, history and science. I have been a remedial reading teacher, helping students to improve reading and comprehension skills. I tutored some of my students individually after school to help them catch up.
I invite you to contact me so we can explore ways to overcome the hurdles you face.
