I have recently retired from LAUSD, where I taught high school math for 30 years that included 10 years in a gifted magnet program.

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.

Patient and Focused

What I like about Susan, other than her vast knowledge, is that she is patient and focused. She does not waste time. Every minute that she is with my son is productive, unlike other tutors who waste time and charge me for it.

Aram, 30 lessons with Susan

Great tutor!

I'm so happy to have found such an amazing Calculus tutor for my daughter. Susan is friendly, patient and knowledgeable. Susan has an engaged approach to teaching and was able to develop a great rapport with my daughter within their first session together.

Cathy, 19 lessons with Susan

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

My son loved his lesson. He feels he can handle math problems now. Susan patiently taught him how to find the slope and graph. We wish we found Susan earlier. However better late than never. Thanks

Hajia, 114 lessons with Susan

Super knowledge from Tutor Susan!

Susan knows Precalculus! She helped my two daughters with quizzes & Hw for Math 140! Excellent tutor & likes it if you send her pictures of the problems 1st, then she'll either text answers back or if you want a session, she'll help you through it!

Dussy, 6 lessons with Susan

Productive First Session

Susan was on time and very easy to talk to regarding what the concerns were for helping my son with his math. She began working with him right away to assess his current knowledge for math. It was a very productive first session.
