Hi! My name is Susan. It's nice to meet you. I taught for 16 years in grades 1st through 5th in the United States and overseas. I spent several years in 3rd grade teaching Reading and Math to English Language Learners and ESL students and helping them prepare for the TAKS(now STAAR)test. I also taught 4th grade Writing and 5th grade Science. For two years, I taught 1st grade. During my last year, I taught second grade. Having taught all grades from first to fifth, I am familiar with the curriculums and the way subjects overlap and progress from grade to grade. In my classes I used many different teaching methods and tried anything that would help motivate students to learn--from traditional approaches to puppets and rock music. Everyone learns in a different way. In a classroom full of students it's often hard to find what works for a particular student. That's why I love tutoring! It's wonderful to watch someone who was struggling become successful and self-confident. I can't wait to meet you and your child so we can get started.
