Hi, my name is Susan and I'm looking forward to working with you and/or your child!
I'm interested and knowledgeable about many subjects, including (but not limited to) history, science, English, literature, writing, art, music, handicrafts, and design.
I have tutoring experience in reading and English, and experience teaching private beginner piano lessons. I've been singing for 15 years now and playing drums off and on for 9 years, and I can teach rudiments in those instruments as well.
I am an expert in Microsoft Office (multiple versions), and I have experience teaching individuals and group classes Microsoft Office and basic computer skills.
I can also crochet and sew and would enjoy teaching those skills to children.
I have first-hand experience with public libraries and know how to use them to the best advantage. I also have Adult ADD and have much experience with learning and using effective coping skills, and can teach those coping skills to children and adults.
I'm currently working on my first novel, and I occasionally read my poetry in local coffee-shop venues.
I enjoy people of all ages and backgrounds and have years of first-hand experience working with the public and customer service in addition to my teaching experience.
I have had ADD all of my life and have learned, and continue to use, various coping skills to ensure I'm an effective person. I have also worked with ADD/ADHD preschool children and I know some of what works and what does not work in teaching them. I'm eager to teach these coping skills to others so that they, to, can be effective.
I've been cooking since I was 8 years old, and enjoy cooking and eating a wide variety of foods. I know both basic and advanced cooking skills. I regularly create new recipes and adjust or modify existing recipes to suit my tastes or others' tastes.
I have been learning, playing and teaching music (off and on) for twenty years. I can play a variety of instruments, and I have taught private children's piano lessons. I also regularly incorporate music into my preschool class.
I have been using Microsoft Windows since childhood. I have taken classes in Windows and computers in general, and I use these skills extensively every day. In previous jobs I was responsible for all computer and software management, and I can load, set up, operate and troubleshoot any Windows OS from 95 to 7.
I graduated from college with a 3.8 GPA, which would not have been possible if I didn't know how to study. I make high scores on tests, and I know how to organize my studying in order to make those high scores. I can teach someone else those same study methods that have enabled me to do so well academically.
For example, the most important aspects of studying for a test are reading comprehension and memorization of facts; because a person must memorize the facts, but if they do not comprehend what they have memorized, they will be unable to extrapolate that knowledge on a test.
1. I'm the kind of person who reads the dictionary for fun.
2. Whenever my friends don't know a word, they ask me first, because they know I'll probably know it.
3. I always score high on vocabulary tests.
4. I had a college reading level in the 4th grade.
I have been singing for twenty years in choirs and solo performances. I have been privately trained as well. I also already give voice lessons privately.
I have written poetry, essays, and novels all of my life. I have won awards for my writing. I have performed my poetry live on several occasions to acclaim.
