About Susan


Bio

I have been tutoring math for over 30 years. I love math - I think is one of the most misunderstood subjects going. Math is not evil, it just seems that way when you are overwhelmed. I like to break down the math barriers and find ways to make math fun, interesting, and relevant.

I have an bachelor's degree (BS) in Television Production with a minor in, yup, math, and a master's degree (MAT) in Teaching. I held a Florida Certification in Middle Grades Integrated Curriculum for 10 years,...

I have been tutoring math for over 30 years. I love math - I think is one of the most misunderstood subjects going. Math is not evil, it just seems that way when you are overwhelmed. I like to break down the math barriers and find ways to make math fun, interesting, and relevant.

I have an bachelor's degree (BS) in Television Production with a minor in, yup, math, and a master's degree (MAT) in Teaching. I held a Florida Certification in Middle Grades Integrated Curriculum for 10 years, and am currently certified in New Jersey. I try to understand how individual students learn best and present information that plays to their strengths. I use lots of humor and create examples based on each student's interests...and pizza...you can do a lot of math problems using pizza.

Elementary math is amazing. There is so much fun to be had in learning and mastering the basics. I have a no-nonsense, direct approach to teaching the most basic math facts so they are easy to remember, then parlay that into a deeper understanding of the more difficult and abstract concepts. As math gets harder, students get more stressed out about the smallest changes. I can help with that. I show students that math is like a foreign language - they have to learn how to translate math to make it easier to understand. I pare down the jargon and use a step-by-step approach that is consistent and logical.

I have worked with several ADD / ADHD students, and students with a variety of learning disabilities, including dyslexia, and have had very positive outcomes. I keep my lessons fast paced, but am flexible with regards to pace; I have no problem switching gears if the need arises. I also like to involve parents in the tutoring process. If everyone is on the same page then there is a better chance that the student will make greater gains in a shorter period of time.

Dyslexia

I am qualified to teach students with dyslexia as I have worked with dyslexic students for the past several years. My son was diagnosed with dyslexia 3 years ago and I have been doing my best to educate myself on the condition ever since. I have attended a lecture by Susan Barton, substitute taught at the Roberts Academy (an elementary school for dyslexic students run by Florida Southern College), and homeschooled my son for 3 years in order to find the accommodations he needed to become a successful student.

Awesome

Susan has been a great tutor for our daughter. She is very knowledgeable, easy to follow and accommodating. She has a very laid back approach which makes the topic far less intimidating to the kids. We are very grateful we found her.

Great first meeting

Susan really made an effort to put my son at ease and assess his needs. She is very accommodating and has great enthusiasm. My son loved her math jokes and her way of communicating to get him engaged.
