About Susan

My tutoring methods are very creative, hands-on, fun and engaging. I use a variety of techniques and strategies to enhance the student's learning. I use speed drills, word banks, word study, rhyming, decoding, tracking words in print, magic tape to hi-lite words in context, and story prompts to motivate them in their writing. I have a master's degree in Early Childhood Education with a Concentration in Reading. I have been in the field my whole life. Teaching is a passion for me. I love watching children grow and blossom.

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.

Elementary Math

I have taught elementary students for over 20 years.

Reading

I have a variety of ways that I teach reading strategies to children. I make it fun. I incorporate different ways of learning according to the child's learning style. I link their prior knowledge to what they need to learn that is new. It really helps them be able to connect the information cognitively.

Very good at connecting with kids — Our son was reluctant to work with a tutor, but Susan was able to connect with him almost immediately. This has resulted in a painless educational process for everyone involved. Bravo Susan. ...
