I am a mature and caring tutor with experience and great references! I ran my own tutoring company in Maryland for 6 years and have been tutoring in and around San Antonio for 2 years. 2014 was a great year for my SAT students, with score improvements ranging from 200-700 points! I work well with students of all ages and abilities, and I have experience with IEPs and other special needs. I am adept at modifying lessons and my style to adapt to the way individual students learn. My primary areas are elementary math, middle school math, pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, SAT, ASVAB, ISEE, SSAT, phonics, reading (beginners and up), writing, grammar and spelling. I LOVE working with middle school students, especially in math. One of my favorite math areas is fractions; I find that many students have difficulty understanding fractions and how they relate to ratios, proportions, decimals and percents, and I have had great success with students in this area. I understand the frustration that many parents and students feel when things are not going well in school, and I can help you and your child get to the root of the issue, find a way to remedy the situation, and move forward with confidence.

Susan has been great! My daughter actually looks forward to her sessions with her! Susan always writes very timely and detailed after-session remarks as to how the lesson went. My daughter wishes Susan would be available to help her more!
Susan is an excellent tutor! She has a way of explaining problems in different ways which allows you to see which way works best for you. She definitely works to fit your schedule. I will have another, more advanced class coming up in the fall and saved her phone number for then so I can receive her help.
Susan is great at working with the whole family. Sometimes the child's concerns are different than the parents'. Susan can balance all of it and keep the session moving along positively.
Susan has a way of instructing that put me at ease right away. She genuinely cared for my success and coached me through some difficult concepts. She was always patient and found alternative ways to explain things when she knew I was struggling to solve a problem. She worked with my schedule and I would highly recommend her for school based tutoring as well as college and graduate level entrance exams.
Susan is a wonderful tutor! She was very accommodating to my busy schedule and focused on my specific SAT needs each lesson. I began sessions two weeks before taking the PSAT in October of this year. I scored fairly in each section and received a 53 in Math. But by my SAT in May, I had raised my score from an 182 on the PSAT to a 2150 on the SAT with a 770 in Critical Reading, 710 in Writing, and 670 in Math! I made so much progress with the help of Susan.
Susan is a very professional and caring tutor. Always on time, always making sure that your child is getting the information that they need to be a success. Susan has gone out of her way to even help my son with his learning situation of Dyscalculia. She read up on the topic to get a better understanding of how he needs to learn in order to succeed in algebra 1. Susan is always seeing what she can do to help your child succeed. She is very tenderhearted to situations yet firm in what needs to be done. She will challenge your child as she sees the potential they have to complete the work and be able to move forward and succeed. Great tutor and we look forward to continue working with her next school year.
Very patient and attentive teacher. Gives good constructive advises to problematic areas of study. Gives great critique. Very organized teacher. Would highly recommend her.
Sometimes you meet someone and think, "this is their calling". This is the case with Susan. She is so patient, direct, and kind. My son loved her from the first 5 minutes of their tutoring session, and he was shining by the time she left. I feel lucky to have found her. (thank you WyzAnt) Don't hesitate, she is a blessing filled with knowledge, and know-how.
Susan has done an outstanding job evaluating and assessing my son's educational knowledge base. She is very observant and attentive to my son's strengths and weaknesses. Susan has worked diligently to organize my son into becoming a better student. I look forward to working with her to improve my son's learning experience.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
As the director of my own tutoring facility for 6 years, I worked directly with students of all ages and abilities. I worked very closely with the principal and counselor of the local elementary school, both of whom sent students to me on a regular basis. The majority of these students were several years behind in reading and math, and many of them had behavioral issues and/or learning disorders that required IEPs and 504 plans. I was successful in bringing these students up to and ahead of grade level, decreasing their frustration, and helping the school meet their goal of keeping students on track.
