## Exactly what I was looking for in a tutor for my son!

Meg, 157 lessons with SuzanneAfter trying several approaches, Suzanne made a positive impact with my son and his studies within the very first sessions. She is organized, focused, and very positive when working with him. She knows how to ask all the right questions, but also listens openly and engages him in decisions around his studies. He has even commented, "She doesn't just make sure the worksheets are completed, she reviews the material with me." I finally feel like we have the right fit for success.

Hello! I am a University of California, San Diego (UCSD) graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology and graduated from the University of Southern California (USC) with my Master's degree in Global Medicine. As an undergraduate at UCSD, I worked as a teaching assistant for lower division biology classes and also tutored different math subjects. I have tutored students in math and science at all grade levels: elementary, middle school, high school, college, and adult. I have...

The key to tutoring elementary math is to be patient and encouraging. I try to engage students and make the concepts interesting by giving real life examples.

Elementary Science
Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I have many years of experience tutoring algebra 1 and believe that a mastery of this subject is essential for future success in math. I enjoy working with students at this math level because it is rewarding for me to see improvements in their grades and pertinent to set a strong foundation in the concepts that will be utilized later in their academic ventures.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is one of the math subjects that I have the most experience tutoring. I found that breaking down difficult concepts using a step by step approach provides students with the understanding and confidence necessary to apply their newfound knowledge to more challenging questions. Because Algebra 2 involves concepts that require knowledge from previous math classes, I ensure that students have a strong background in those more basic concepts before tackling more complex concepts.

Biology,
#### Biology

As a graduate from UCSD with a degree in Human Biology, one of my main passions is tutoring students on the many fascinating aspects of biology. As a recent graduate from USC with a Masters degree in Global Medicine, I was required to take biology classes at the medical school level where I performed at the top of my class in each course. Therefore, I have a very strong background in biology and enjoy helping students discover the intriguing workings of the world of science!

Chemistry,
#### Chemistry

As a human biology graduate I was required to take college level chemistry courses and performed at the top of my class in each course.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

After tutoring all math subjects from pre-algebra to calculus, I have noticed that most students struggle because they did not understand a certain concept the first time or it was not taught properly. Therefore, the next lesson they are given in that subject seems even more challenging. I will help you understand the concepts that you are struggling with and catch you up so that you can excel in your geometry class.

Prealgebra,
#### Prealgebra

Many students that struggle in prealgebra do so because they do not have a strong foundation in math. My main goal when tutoring prealgebra is to strengthen students’s weaknesses in order to catch them up so that they can succeed in their class.

Precalculus,

As a precalulus tutor I strive to build students’s confidence and provide them with the tools necessary for success.

Trigonometry,
#### Trigonometry

Many students struggle with trigonometry because it requires an understanding of algebra and geometry topics that they learned in previous years. From algebra, students must be comfortable manipulating algebraic expressions and solving algebraic equations. From geometry, students must be familiar with the Pythagorean theorem and similar triangles. I like to take a hands-on approach when tutoring trigonometry by giving students many example problems and also drawing pictures to go with each problem. This way, students can correctly visualize the information that is given and understand what they are solving for.

## Incredibly knowledgeable & kind tutor!

When I think of the most ideal tutor, I think of Suzanne. She is extremely knowledgeable, always arrives on time to our sessions, is extremely hard-working and kind. When I am struggling with any aspect of math or chemistry, Suzanne knows exactly what I am confused with, and explains the concepts with such ease and clarity. She makes herself available on the weekends or when I’m studying for a test and need timely assistance. I couldn’t speak more highly of Suzanne and her attributes. I’m so grateful for all of her help! She’s a phenomenal tutor!!

## amazing as usual

Suzanne has been a Gods send. She has really helped my son understand the pre algebra material he is taking at school and has helped him feel confident going into his exams. She responds quickly and provides us practice sheets to keep working on after her sessions. She summarizes everything she goes over with my son after class. She is professional and thorough.

## Strategies

Suzanne helped my daughter with a new strategy to help my daughter solve longer division problems. Suzanne explained everything clearly and now my daughter has another tool in her toolbox for solving problems. Suzanne is super helpful!

Delia, 54 lessons with Suzanne

## great teacher, very thorough!

Suzanne responded quickly to my inquiry. I sent her what my son needed help with and she got right to explaining the concepts to my son. She also prepped her own materials and had my son practice with her thoroughly in the session. She gave him some homework too to make sure he practice before his test. We are definitely going to ask Suzanne for help again!

Sherihan, 11 lessons with Suzanne

## Really good tutor

My son really enjoyed learning Algebra 1. We have been having lessons for a week now. She is very patient and works at the students pace. She is also accommodating with our time needs. We are looking to continue lessons with her this year.

## WOW!

When my math-hating 9 year old child says that after one session, Suzanne made math fun and cool... I'm literally blown away! Suzanne was very encouraging, clear, and gave my daughter some tips and tricks that really helped her feel like she was getting it. I'm looking forward to the weekly tutoring sessions with Suzanne - I think it will make a big difference in my daughter's ability and confidence!

Heidi, 37 lessons with Suzanne

## Nice

My daughter really likes her. And her grade is improving. She needed someone to make sure she understood the lesson and could answer her questions. She getting more confident.

Andrea, 16 lessons with Suzanne

## Super helpful and easy to connect with

Suzanne was really responsive and flexible w our scheduling needs. She helped my son w his Algebra II homework such that he understood the concepts, completed his homework for the class and had notes to reference afterwards. Exceeded my expectations. Appreciate you Suzanne!
