About Susan

Unlock your child's potential and provide him or her with the skills that are necessary in ALL subject areas!
Teacher with over 20 years experience has taught in urban schools and suburban/rural schools. I am known for my ability to reach even the most reluctant learner and make connections.

Kids love me--I am funny, and make learning relevant and meaningful for your child. I am patient, kind and encouraging.

I use many research-based strategies that will produce results! I will not tutor math above the 5th grade level because there are other teachers out there who can do it better. I excel in reading comprehension and reading skills, writing, social studies and science. Must boast that 2 of the recent high-school students I tutored earned a perfect score in their writing on the SAT!

Undergraduate degree from Bates College, Maine. Master's from St Joseph College, West Hartford and have taken graduate level courses at Wesleyan University, Middletown. I have tutored for years and truly enjoy it. In the past I have: volunteered as cub scout leader-- 5 years-same group of boys the entire time, Christian education (Sunday School teacher), Big Sister (state of CT program), and been a licensed foster home parent.

You can see I have spent much of my life teaching children. Be would be a pleasure to teach yours. Parents are welcome to join in any and all tutoring sessions. Please let me know how I can help. So much of overall school success and life quality depends on early intervention. Get your child the help he or she needs now.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
