About Susyn

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!

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.

Bible Studies

I have significant knowledge in multiple religions including: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Mormon. I also have significant knowledge of the Christian Bible, not only through taking a lot of coursework in the subject, but also having taught Bible studies to elementary, and junior and senior high students.

Thank you for your time.

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!

Macintosh

I have been working on Macintosh products since the very first Macintosh (1984). That includes Mail, Macintosh's own suite of word processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs, calendar, and many other Macintosh-specific programs and utilities. I have also tutored students on Macintosh, whether it has been for home or business use. I look forward to working with you to help you become a Mac Pro.

Marketing

I am a Marketing consultant and prior to that, I was a Marketing Director and Marketing Manager in several corporations.

My strengths include: developing marketing and product strategy, brand development, copywriting, designing and implementing lead generation programs, internet marketing, PR, advertising, etc.

I would love to help tutor you in the nuances of Marketing. It is fun and you will learn a lot.

Public Speaking

I have been in Sales and Marketing for more than 15 years, and during that time, I made presentations where I had to speak in front of different types of organizations, and to small and large groups at regional and national conferences. I have accumulated quite a number of tips on how to be a successful public speaker. I also have trained others on how to be successful public speakers. Today, I continue to speak and present at business, nonprofit, marketing and education events. I would love to work with students to help them to improve their public speaking skills so they become more successful at public speaking.

Study Skills

I have been a tutor for over 20 years and have been working with students (elementary through adults) on their study skills for years.

Having solid study skills comes down to organizing and prioritizing work. I am very strong in this area. And I help students make working on their study skills more like fun and less like work. I have some fun tricks that will help every student improve their study skills.

Writing

I am a published writer, copywriter and proofreader. I love helping students with their writing assignments and to help them improve their writing skills. Because I have tutored students for a long time, I have found ways to teach students while making learning fun.
