As a Florida certified teacher, I have several years experience tutoring elementary level students in all subjects (ex: reading, math, science, English, social studies). I have tutored students of all ages and implement my lessons with them in a step-by-step manner. The lessons are geared toward the needs of the student and I utilize a variety of activities (ex: Factor Trail Game) to teach the students various skills (ex: phonics, times tables). As a tutor and teacher, I am very patient with younger students and they succeed in learning or refining their skills. I have experience teaching and tutoring elementary students in schools, learning centers, and at an SES provider. During this time, I acquired the skills necessary to effectively teach younger learners. I also have experience tutoring ESOL students in the elementary grades. I modify curriculum in order to meet the needs of individual students and utilize various learning strategies to help them achieve their goals. I have attended workshops that are geared toward the needs of young learners. I have used many of the strategies that I learned from this training with both ESL and non-ESL students.

Test Preparation

ISEE,

ISEE

I am a certified teacher and experienced tutor who has successfully prepared students for the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam). I have tutored for several years and have a strong background in all subject areas (verbal and qualitative reasoning, reading comprehension, essay writing, and math achievement) that the ISEE assesses. I have preparation books and materials that I utilize during the tutoring sessions. I tailor my lessons according to the needs of each student. I carefully identify the areas that the students need to improve in. The sessions consist of skill-building exercises and question-answer discussions.
TEAS,

TEAS

I have a strong understanding of each section (Math, Reading, Language Arts, Science) of the TEAS test. My academic background and certifications are also strong in these areas. I have successfully prepared several students for the TEAS exam. I tailor the sessions toward the needs of each student (ex: some students need help with Math more than Reading and vice versa). For some students taking the TEAS, it is a matter of understanding the vocabulary words that are being used in each question. Once they learn the meanings of the terminology or phrases being used, they are able to increase the number of questions that they answer correctly. For other students, it is a matter of remediating or refining their skills in a certain area. I structure and modify the lessons (and types of preparation materials used) according to the students' individual needs.

Mark, 6 lessons with Suzanne

Great tutor. Knows the subjects well!

Suzanne helped me with math for the general knowledge test. She showed me step by step for each problem. I feel more prepared for my test and would recommend her to anyone! Thanks for all your help, Suzanne.

Andrea, 3 lessons with Suzanne

Excellent Tutor!

Suzanne is an excellent tutor. She prepared my 13 year old son for his FCAT testing in which he did very well. She made things easy for him to understand and learn. He has retained all the knowledge and is very grateful to her. I highly recommend her.

Edmee, 115 lessons with Suzanne

Listens well, and makes sure I understand the material before moving on!

Suzanne was awesome! During the lesson, she would go over the problems I struggled with and then she would give me a set of questions to answer. When I was working the problems, I made simple careless mistakes and Suzanne taught me how to avoid them in the future. The next day, I spent some time re-working those problems along with a list of other ones out of my TEAS study guide, and I got each and every problem right! Thank you so much for your help and I look forward to our next session on Sunday. I already have a few more different types of problems to ask you about.

Kayla, 3 lessons with Suzanne

Very patient

Suzanne has been working with my son for several months now. She always comes prepared and ready to work. My teenage son has a learning disability and it is sometimes difficult to get him on track. She has been incredibly patient with him and has helped him tremendously.

Consummate Professional

Suzanne's in depth knowledge was instrumental in getting this 45 year old back up to speed so I could complete a college level advanced statistics course. Her patience, flexible availability, and accommodating teaching style was a real benefit in helping me understanding the coursework. She made it easy to succeed. I was very satisfied and highly recommend her.

Suzanne is an exceptional tutor; very helpful in all areas of study. I had to study for the TEAS test and needed extra focus on Math, and Suzanne was very patient, positive, and encouraging. Suzanne is very good at teaching and I highly recommend her.

Ms. Suzanne is the best. Although english is not my first language, Suzanne makes it very easy for me to explain my thoughts and learn the best way to write in english. She's very patient, intelligent, understanding, and always on time. I highly recommend her and will definitely work with her in the future. Thank you so much for the excellent work. And I really appreciate this great experience.
