I received my bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Colorado, and I was a teaching assistant while there. I received my MBA from UC-Irvine in 2016.

Hi. My name is Susyn. I have been a tutor for over 20 years. I tutor middle school, high school, collegiate and adult students.

I received my bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Colorado, and I was a teaching assistant while there. I received my MBA from UC-Irvine in 2016.

While mathematics, life sciences, English, and SAT test preparation are my specialties, I also tutor in accounting, economics, finance, college/graduate school essay and application preparation, proofreading/editing documents, study skills, resume and interview preparation, theatre, drama, general business management, personal management and computers (general computers, Mac and MS Office - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Access).

I like to break things down into the smallest components and build them back up - it's the easiest and most fun way to learn. And I am eager and ready to help you gain confidence and knowledge so you become a master student and test taker. I also guarantee the student a minimum of a one grade increase if the student follows the tutoring program.

I have a very flexible schedule and will work around your schedule to accommodate you.

Please note I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel in less than 24 hours, I am willing to give you a credit to be used for a makeup session if scheduled within 3 days.

I look forward to working with you.

Cheers!

Susyn

College Counseling,

College Counseling

College counseling usually involves college selection, college application preparation (including essay development) and financial aid application preparation. As a private tutor, I have helped students determine a secondary education path, helped them research schools and appropriate college fairs and other local events to attend that their schools of interest will be at, helped them produce a target school list, helped in college and financial aid application preparation, and helped create and edit their essays for their applications. I love doing this work because to see the excitement in my students' eyes to move forward with their college plans and get into the college of their dreams makes my day!

Very good with my teenage boys!

Susan has been doing a great job tutoring my boys in English and she has helped them 'organize' their materials. She has a calm approach which seems to work with my kids. They are more confident and prepared for learning.

Lynn, 9 lessons with Susyn

Knowledgeable and Patient.

My grade continues to be an A in this class. Susyn is truly helping me to get through all homework assignments. Looking forward to discussing final projects.

Back on track in Geometry, thanks to Susyn!

Due to a busy sports schedule at Paly, my daughter missed a handful of geometry classes last fall. A few low test scores later, her confidence in the subject was completely shaken. We tried two other tutors before we found Susyn, so let me save you the trouble: hire Susyn. She is a very clear communicator whose teaching style helps kids learn to solve problems on their own. We found her to be punctual and reliable and she really put my daughter at ease. I highly recommend her in this topic!

Jamie, 8 lessons with Susyn

Well rounded and very helpful.

Prior to this year, my son had difficulties within several courses and the tutors being used were ineffective. This year with Susyn has been tremendously helpful, the errors that were occurring in previous semesters are currently diminished or non-existent. The classes before this semester ended with failing grades, his grades since using Susyn have been A's or B's -- a very welcome change! College classes (and classes in general) can be difficult and learning speeds in the classroom vary from student to student. Susyn has been able to help my son in ways his college classes/professors could not. A+ Tutor!

Improved English Scores

Susyn has been working with our 16 year old daughter for the past 3 months. Over that time we have seen a steady improvement in her grades and in her confidence for which we are grateful.

Dennis, 33 lessons with Susyn

Did not show up on time

It would be inappropriate to comment on the tutoring skills of Ms. Susyn D. because she did not show up on time as promised.

Erica, 2 lessons with Susyn

Great Tutor

Explains concepts well and is very patient with student. Tries different approaches to reach student understanding and spends extra time as necessary.

Joy, 109 lessons with Susyn

Great tutor.

We hired Susyn for our daughter for Algebra 2 and AS Chemistry and were very happy with her tutoring. We would defintely recommend her for anyone looking for a tutor for a high school student.

Zia, 3 lessons with Susyn

An Exceptional Tutor

I worked with Susyn in order to gain confidence to get back into the work environment and and to gain additional computer skills. Susyn worked with me on Microsoft projects, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook. Specifically, meeting my goals. Susyn's methods are exceptional and high level and effective. She also makes learning fun. Her interpersonal skills are a pleasure to be with. She is always inspiring and positive and has an exceptional communication style as well as a wealth of knowledge. I feel very grateful for having Susyn as my tutor through Wyzant. Thank you.
