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...

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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Susan teaches AP calc for my kid and she has been enjoying the lessons with Susan. She is very patient and highly encouraging. She teaches New concepts and works with her through solving the problem

Devi, 14 lessons with Susan

Great tutor

Very patient, knowledgeable, helpful. I got a lot of information needed in just an hour. She knows a lot about math. She was also accommodating. Continuing with her services!

Mary, 2 lessons with Susan

Knowledgeable and nice tutor

Calculus BC. She offered us to contact her anytime during her vacation without the charge if we need something. That was very nice of her. My daughter likes her very much

Anna, 1 lesson with Susan

Patient and Extremely Helpful.

Susan does an amazing job guiding you through practice while allowing you to explore in your own way. I am opening up pathways in my brain I never knew I had. If you are struggling, look no further for results.

Nicolette, 14 lessons with Susan

Great calculus tutor

I understand why she is busy! Very patient and kind and knowledgeable. We have had other tutors and she is definitely the best. It is clear that she not only knows the subject well but really enjoys it and connects with my senior boy.

Deborah, 7 lessons with Susan

Great Long-term tutor

Susan tutored my son across multiple math subjects on a regular basis throughout high school. She has an excellent rapport and comprehensive skill set that helped build my son’s confidence, aptitude, and ultimately his enjoyment of math. We highly recommend her.

Jeanne, 83 lessons with Susan

Excellent math tutor

Her teaching style is calm. She never makes my child feel bad for not knowing something. Very encouraging and patient. She was even familiar with the text book my child was using so knew exactly how to teach it.

Mary, 13 lessons with Susan

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, 178 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
