About Susan

I was a Peace Officer (Special Officer) at the Human Resources Administration, Department of Social Services in New York City. As an HRA Academy Instructor, (6/1983-1/1989), I designed lesson plans, and taught Special Officers, and contract Security Officers. The subjects I taught included: Report Writing, and Stress Management. From 9/1989-5/1990 I was an Instructor at Unified Schools of America, a trade and technical school in Azusa, CA., where I taught part of an 8-week training program for Security Officers.

The subjects I taught included Report Writing and Crowd Control. I also taught youth and adult traffic violators at a traffic school in Southern California. I have also prepared lesson plans and taught teenagers and adults in Sunday School classes and Bible study at Primm Tabernacle AME Church in Pomona, CA.

I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree (Christian Ministry) in May, 2007 from Hope International University in Fullerton, CA. In May, 2015, I graduated from Luther Seminary in Saint Paul, MN with a Masters Degree in Theology. In August of this year, I completed my second Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary's University in Minneapolis, MN. I am also a Certified Facilitator of the Prepare/Enrich program for couples.

I enjoy tutoring because it affords me the opportunity to help my students learn! I believe that, irrespective of background and/or previous difficulties, if a student invests the time and effort to understand the lesson material, we can work together to help him or her succeed. It also is important that the student learn to be patient with him/herself; the material is not insurmountable. For example, not only is it important to know how to correctly spell a word; it is important to know what that word means so that it may be used in the proper context.

I am excited about the opportunity to help you maximize your study time and your results! Learning can be fun! If you are willing to do the work, I am willing to help you achieve your academic goals. Be encouraged; you can do this! Call me, and we can get started. I will help you find and use the tools you need to succeed.

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 a Masters Degree in Theology (2015), and I have been an ordained minister since 2008. I have also taught Bible studies to adults and teenagers. I am also a Certified Facilitator of Prepare/Enrich, which is a training program for married couples and for those who are in long-term relationships.

I have tutored community college students whose first language was not English. In addition, I have a B.S. degree and two Masters degrees.
