Bio

Back in school, I used to be a peer mentor to struggling students with Chem, Writing, Math, Nursing school pre-req classes, ATI Teas, and even College Counseling. After I graduated high school, I found that teaching is my passion. I love to see the aha moments in students, and just seeing students pass their exams and courses bring me so much joy. Thus, I continue to teach until this day.

Piano has been my instrument for over 10 years. I have finished all levels of music theory, and have passed the Certificate of Merit Exam for the Advanced Level for Music Theory and Piano Performance in 2015. In high school, I received A's in both semesters of AP Music Theory, as well as passing the AP Music Theory Exam from CollegeBoard. I have taught Music Theory in a classroom setting before. I have performed on small stages and large stages (Carnegie Hall), I have placed 1st in multiple international competitions, such as the International Duo Competition, the Carmel Klavier International Competition, the Grand Prize Virtuoso International Piano Competition in Vienna and Rome, the American Protege International Concerto Competition, and many more.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

Growing up, I was a natural public speaker. I gave numerous speeches in front of small and large audiences. I also have been the spokesperson/representative of my Viet and Piano school where I had to say a speech to not only thousands of students and parents, but as well as highly respected figures in the Asian American community. In middle school, I took a class in public speaking and scored the highest grade in class. In high school, I was the lead anchor of my broadcasting class and as a leader, I helped to train my peers in their public speaking skills.

Vietnamese

Vietnamese

I have spoken Viet all my life. It was my first language, and it is my primary language. I went to Vietnamese school to hone my reading and writing skills, and to learn more about the history of Viet Nam. I remember loving the lessons about Vietnamese food and geography as well as all the different male and female heroes of Viet Nam. I competed in a book writing contest 2 years ago and placed 2nd, and as a reward, my book was published and sold by NRCAL. Consequently, I then became Valedictorian of my Vietnamese Class with a grade point average of above 100%. I took a course at CSULB to receive an official certificate declaring my eligibility to teach Vietnamese, and now I am certified to teach the course.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

Math was one of my best subjects in school. I always received high marks in math, and was able to help out anyone in need. This has carried on to my college classes, in my large lectures, I am most usually the person to help others, as I really love challenging myself in doing math. My life has been centered around working with children. I have taught children of all ages as well as done research on them, and so I am very experienced with working with children.

I have played a variety of music from all 4 eras (Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary), and among those eras I have played music from various composers. I specialize in Chopin pieces, I love Chopin, and I really love the touch of Chopin pieces. One of his pieces I am working on right now is the Chopin Concerto No. 1. I've already completed Movements 2 and 3, and after I complete Movement 1, I plan to record with an orchestra.

Great Instructor!

Susan is teaching me Vietnamese. I require a more customized lesson, and she accommodates my needs. She is a patient instructor, very smart, and friendly. Her Vietnamese is excellent. I would highly recommend Susan. Thanks.

Susan is Amazing!

Susan is an amazing Vietnamese language tutor. My daughter looks forward to every lesson. Susan creates an environment that is stimulating, encouraging and maximizes every minute of the hour-long lesson. We are so happy, and feel very lucky to have her as our tutor!

Teas tutor

She is the best tutor I have come across thus far. She gets straight to the point, flexible and knowledgeable on all subjects for the teas test. I have already passed the teas but just want to test in the advance portion of the test. I will do an update once my score come back.
