I have always enjoyed helping fellow students learn. A tutor can not only help a student master a specific topic, but also inspire self-confidence and curiosity. I enjoy discovering the individual learning-styles of students and personalizing tutoring plans to their strengths.

I have always enjoyed helping fellow students learn. A tutor can not only help a student master a specific topic, but also inspire self-confidence and curiosity. I enjoy discovering the individual learning-styles of students and personalizing tutoring plans to their strengths.

I particularly enjoy science and math classes and have performed well throughout high school and college. I earned scores of 5 on my AP tests in Biology, Chemistry, Calculus AB, and Calculus BC. I achieved perfect scores on my SAT Biology and Mathematics II Subject tests. After high school, I continued my education at UC Davis, earning a bachelors in Entomology and a bachelors in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior. Upon graduation, I had earned a cumulative GPA of 3.59, and the 2014 Outstanding Entomology Undergraduate award. I believe that my enthusiasm for the process of learning and desire to understand the people I work with, equip me to effectively guide students through difficult subjects.

Biology

While receiving two bachelors in biological disciplines, I have developed a strong foundation in a wide range of biological topics, including evolution, ecology, genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, physiology, and cognitive science. This experience has allowed me to become familiar with overarching themes in biology. As a biology tutor, I seek to present diverse examples of major patterns, guiding the student to see a coherent picture rather than a set of "to-be-memorized" facts. Once major themes are understood, important details can be presented to further overall understanding.

Botany,

Botany

As an Entomology undergraduate from UC Davis, I was given a solid education in plant sciences. My curriculum included Plant Physiology, California Floristics, Plant-Virus-Vector Interactions, Plant Pathology and Plant Biochemistry. After college, I continued my education in the plant sciences by working for the Plant Pathology Department as a research assistant. Our field crew worked to investigate the effect of forest fire on conifer pathogens. Through these experiences, I feel prepared to tutor in plant physiology, anatomy, taxonomy, systematics, and other subjects.
Physiology,

Physiology

While receiving a bachelor's in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior, I was given a strong foundation in chemistry, molecular biology, and cellular biology. This knowledge helped to inform my approach to physiology while I took general and system specific courses. I aim to encourage students to use their background knowledge in chemistry and cell biology to develop an intuitive understanding of physiology.

One of the best tutors I have ever had!

Susan is so sweet and very patient. She’s very encouraging and makes me feel much more confident about my college math and biology courses! Highly recommend.

Allison, 4 lessons with Susan

Excellent tutor

Susan is very patient, reliable, and extremely knowledgeable. She has been a wonderful tutor! We look forward to continuing to work with her. She has made a big difference during this time of virtual learning reteaching and supporting learning gaps.

Positive, Supportive and Interactive High School Biology Teacher

Susan helped my son prepare for his finals. She taught him in an interactive and accessible way and was a great support. She helped him review the biology concepts he needed to cover for his final. After her lessons, he felt prepared and more confident. She's a great asset to anyone needing support in high school biology.

Anna, 3 lessons with Susan

Very knowledgeable tutor

Susan helped me with the biology subject as we were preparing for an upcoming midterm and she had no trouble with the knowledge and concepts even though some questions were tricky (as always with biology). I have no reservation to recommend Susan as a tutor for biology.

AP Chemistry

Susan’s tutoring style is very effective with my teenage son. After explaining topics that we requested support with, she asks questions to verify his understanding. She is very warm and provides positive feedback or simply revisits the topic. She also will review specific problems from his class with him. My son has stated that he now understands every concept she has covered with him in a way he did not before the session!

Excellent tutor

Susan helps my son with Neurobiology and Anatomy. She is knowledgeable and always well-prepared for topics she would be tutoring on the day. She has exceptional skills in explaining things precisely and clearly. My son is lucky to have her support this year.

Rattana, 26 lessons with Susan

Awesome

Susan helped me in understanding Action Potential also a scientific paper that I had problems with. She is a great explainer and helps you understand the material. I highly recommend her.

Comes Through for AP Chemistry

Thermodynamics is a tough concept but with her excellent tutoring I was able to understand it. She knows her stuff and will put in the time to help you. We all need a Susan G. in our lives!

Sydney, 18 lessons with Susan

Very Patient Tutor

I really enjoy and benefit from having Susan as a tutor. She is very patient and will explain things to me as many times as it takes for me to fully understand them. I highly recommend her to anyone. She is amazing when it comes to science. I give her 5 stars. 😊
