About Susan

Hello. I love mathematics, students of mathematics, and am enthusiastic about tutoring. I have a BA in Mathematics from UC Irvine, and a California Math Secondary teaching Credential. I have recently retired from LAUSD, where I taught high school math for 30 years that included 10 years in a gifted magnet program. I taught basic math, pre-algebra, geometry, algebra 2, pre-calculus, trigonometry, AP calculus, both AB and BC levels, basic probability and statistics, and some integrated math courses. I have tutored all levels, including some college courses. I loved my job and am looking forward to bringing that enthusiasm to tutoring.

As a teacher, I have prepared students for the AP Calculus exam, promoted independent student learning, and developed math curriculum and course materials. I have a sound knowledge of student assessment practices, and a good understanding of student learning styles. I have an outstanding rapport with students and , when appropriate, like to discuss deeper concepts to strengthen their math skills.

I will refund the first hour of tutoring if you are not happy with the results. Looking forward to hearing from you. References are available upon request.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I have either taught or tutored Algebra I and Algebra 2 for many years.

Algebra 2

I have taught Algebra 2 to both honors and non honors students for 30 years.

Calculus

I taught Calculus in LA Unified, and help prepare my students for the AP Calculus exam for many years. I also have references if needed.

Geometry

Geometry is a very visual topic, because of all of the shapes. I enjoy discussing with students how to change these shapes into words and then equations.

Prealgebra

I was a teacher in Los Angeles Unified for many years. I have taught pre-algebra.

Precalculus

I taught Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus classes in in Los Angeles for many years.

Trigonometry

I taught trigonometry/precalculus classes for many years in Los Angeles Unified. I like to teach trigonometry visually, using triangles and the unit circle. I can them transfer the information from these triangles to make the graphs of sine and cosine.
