About Suzanne

I have a degree in Environmental Toxicology from the College of Science at UC Davis. I am a teacher that is credentialed in biology and chemistry and have experience tutoring science, math and SAT/ACT prep. I especially enjoy tutoring because I love to watch students progress from being confused and insecure in their abilities to feeling like the subject matter is actually quite simple. Students have told me that they walk into a tutoring session after spending a week learning about a subject in the class feeling like they have no comprehension of what the teacher was discussing and then leave after only an hour with me confident in their ability to complete the assignment.

I usually start my session with a new student asking questions to assess their level of knowledge. I then may give a mini lesson with notes for the student to refer to. After that we progress to practice problems to apply the knowledge. At the end of the session, if time allows I like to end with a brief summary and check for understanding. If necessary I will suggest that the student complete some more practice problems in order to 'cement' the skills that were just attained into their brains.

I am happy to engage in as much or little communication with the parents as desired. In general, I usually like to give reports to the parents of SAT/ACT prep students to keep them abreast of their students progress, to make them aware of areas where additional work is needed and to make any recommendations to ensure their student's improvement.

I enjoy getting to know my students, helping them to find their strengths and to watch them grow and learn! Please feel free to contact me or to schedule a lesson.

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.

Chemistry

I taught chemistry at SDA last year as well as biology at LCC.

Prealgebra

I have been a frequent sub in the SDUHSD middle school math department and a tutor that specializes in middle school through ACT prep math skills.
