I am a retired teacher, having taught math in public high schools for 33 years, the last 31 of which were at Alhambra High School in Alhambra, CA. In the 10 years since my retirement, I have substituted at high schools in Alhambra, Monrovia, and Arcadia. In those schools, I have taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus. I have also been a tutor for the CAHSEE test for the last 3 years, helping students who have finished their high school credits, but still have not yet passed this test.
I have loved math since I took Algebra I when I was in 9th grade. Math is like a puzzle to me, in which we have certain information and clues at the beginning of the problem, and we need to figure out how to get to the solution using our memory, creativity and logic. Throughout my career I have endeavored to pass this attitude along to my students.
In my classes I take students from what they already know to the new concepts they don't know, using many examples. If one way of explaining a problem doesn't work, I find another way to explain it.

Sue continues to be great with my daughter! She will focus on the basics which are necessary to have first before going on to harder concepts. My daughter's grades have gone from a low D to a mid to high C! Thanks a bunch Sue!
Sue has been tutoring my son for couple months. She is professional and effective. She is not only a good tutor, but a good teacher as well. My son's score of Math got improving to 2 grades higher. Her style has helped build confidence and pride. I and my son really appreciate her supporting and teaching.
Before my daughter began classes with Sue, she was not keeping up with her Algebra class, her grade was a C- and if she continued on this path, she was to be demoted from Algebra 1. After a couple of classes with Sue, my daughter began to show improvement on her grade and after her 5th class with Sue, my daughter's grade went up to a B+. I notice that she is more confident before and after a test and I credit all of this to her wonderful tutor - Sue. I want to thank SUE for making such a difference in my daughter's attitude towards Algebra, and for making such a positive impact that with last her a life time! Sincerely, Maria
Thanks Sue for your patience and excellent tutoring skills when helping our daughter. She has really improved her math skills (pre-calculus) and has moved up two letter grades thanks to you. We look forward to another great semester.
I had a very positive experience working with Sue. She was punctual, patient and very professional. Sue's ability to explain difficult math concepts made it easy for me to understand. She was able to break down each step in an easier way. She also used easier concrete examples. I would definitely use Sue again and reccomend her to others.
Very patient and encouraging with my son in Math! Always available for questions.
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.
