About Suzan

With twenty-five years as an educator, my knowledge, enthusiasm and passion for the profession have led me to a wide range of experiences. My background in creative arts/theater performance is instrumental in my work with students which is based on experiential learning and facilitating and modeling appropriate behaviors for the classroom, the home and across all learning environments.

I have completed training in Applied Behavior Analysis and have been working as a Behavior Therapist, Enhanced Respite Care Provider and a Learning Coach. My background includes work in both classroom teaching and private tutoring.

My mission is to challenge and inspire my students to grow academically, emotionally and spiritually by using my compassion, my energy and enthusiasm, my unique perspective and my belief in the student's inherent goodness, integrity and enormous potential.

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.
