About Sue

As a veteran Iowa certified teacher endorsed in K-6 elementary education, K-8 reading and K-12 mild/moderate and BD/LD special education, and now as a California credentialed teacher, I plan to help all students succeed by tutoring!! I've inspired the learning of many children dealing with behavior disorders and learning challenges such as ADHD, ADD, ODD, autism, intellectual exceptionalities, and delayed processing, to name a few. Now it is my desire to put my 12 years of K-12 teaching experience to use by igniting the learning fire inside your child! Simply put, I will help create a lifelong love of learning so your child can achieve maximum potential! :)

The first session with me, begins with building rapport with your child and establishing a positive student/teacher relationship. This is essential for me to understand your child's learning style, strategy preferences, and motivational level. I seek to use multiple teaching strategies tailored to fit your child's learning style which maximizes the motivation to learn. Yes, we will have fun and learn!

At my most recent teaching assignment, I taught kindergarten/first grade special needs and at-risk students who told me they were "bad at learning." Two years later one boy told me to his surprise, "Hey, I am learning!! I actually love to learn." He went from scoring in the bottom five to the top five on his reading assessment in one school year. This is what I wish to do for every child struggling... to grow lifelong love of learning!!

Please call today and let's get your child signed up for tutoring success at your local library or mutually agreed upon location. I have flexible hours between 8 am-8 pm. Ready, set...it's time to learn!

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.

I taught 9 years at a private special education school where students were unable to attend their local public school due to severe behaviors.

Most recently, I have also taught K-2 special education at a public school, where I primarily helped students with learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, autism, hearing loss, behavior issues.
