About Susan

For the past 23 years I have been teaching students with and without special needs, in grades 2-8. I have always been able to establish a positive relationship with my students and their families. It is important to determine how students learn best and use this to create meaningful learning experiences. I am well versed in all elementary subjects (reading, writing, math, social studies, and science) as well as organization, differentiated instruction, and common core state standards.

My certifications include elementary education, special education (mild/moderate disabilities) and guidance and counseling. I am currently teaching grades 5 & 6. I provide hands-on, real-life application components to my lessons to help students stay motivated and engaged.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I check my email frequently and will get back to you as soon as possible.

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.

Common Core

As a certified California teacher, I am required to adhere to Common Core state standards. I have attended training sessions related to the Common Core standards including how these standards relate to students with special needs. In addition, IEP goals for special needs students are based on Common Core standards, requiring me to be well-versed.

Special Needs

I hold an Education Specialist, Mild/Moderate certificate in California and currently teach special education. I also have an Added Autism Authorization.

Our first meeting: better than we had even hoped!

Susan was better than we had even hoped! And when Brielle was asked how she liked her Tutor, she answered with a resounding "I love her!" Doesn't get better than that!
