About Susan

Ahhh, the joy of math! I realize that not everyone loves math as much as I do, however I try to bring some of my enthusiasm and encouragement to each of my sessions. Whether we are tackling fractions or the Pythagorean Theorem, I work with each student to explain the problem, work out solutions step-by-step, and then give them the opportunity to complete problems independently.

Teaching a child to read is another one of my favorite things to do! I love the look of accomplishment young children get when they begin to understand and read their first book all by themselves! I use the Orton-Gillingham method which is multi-sensory, sequential, structured and comprehensive. This method is very effective for children just beginning to read as well as older students who may be struggling. I try to make each session fun, and I include a lot of "games" that are actually teaching aids.

I hold a professional teaching certificate from the state of Florida since 2006, with experience teaching Reading in a private school and Mathematics at the middle and high school level. Every student learns differently and I try to determine the student's learning style and strengths so that I can best accommodate them.

I have worked in schools, homeschool co-ops, and as a private tutor. For upper level math, I prefer working at a nearby library or coffee shop. I am willing to tutor younger students (PreK-3rd) in their home if that is more preferable. I hope to hear from you!

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.
