About Susan

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.

Please feel free to contact me to see how I can help you succeed!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

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.

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.
