About Suzanne

I have 39 years experience of teaching high school math in private and public schools. I can tutor in basic math, Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, AP Statistics, SAT & PSAT math and test taking strategies. I am a former math department chairperson and AP statistics reader for Educational Testing Service. I retired 4 years ago and have since returned to a local public high school as the math dept tutor and also teach a SAT math prep course at night in the school district.

My philosophy is that anyone can "do math" as long as they have the desire and perseverance. I don't let my students fail but give them the necessary skills to be successful.

Suzanne tutored my daughter for Algebra. She is very professional. Always on time, and amazing communication skills. As a tutor, she was dedicated and thorough. She always took a personal interest in my daughter's success on tests, etc. She is genuinely excited and passionate about math, which shows in her teaching. I highly recommend Suzanne. More than just teaching my daughter the textbook
