About Susan

Orlando Area Software Developer (15+ yrs)

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science. I've been tutoring people of all ages in many subjects since I had these same courses in High School & College.

I especially enjoy helping others with Math. So many people have had bad experiences with Math ... and it is an amazing feeling when they go from hating math, to actually enjoying taking challenging math courses.

I've had students that hated math when I met them, and after we worked together ... things finally made sense. There's even one that I know that majored in Mathematics!

Susan replied on 11/16/2013

I always offer the 1st hour free and the student is welcome to end the session at that point. Not every person is a match with every tutor. If you are a non-confrontational person like me, who doesn't want to say 'hey this isn't working for me' right to someone's face -- then just pull out the polite lie like grabbing your phone from your pocket and take a fake call, 'oh so sorry I have a family emergency I need to take care of' and end the session. I do not want to waste either of our time if things aren't working.

I can certainly relate to the want to 'keep it simple'-- and if I could find a way to make stats simple I'd be a genius. Sorry, no matter how much we would like it to be ... it is not simple.

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.

C

I have a bachelor's degree from Lycoming College in Computer Science, and have worked for 15+ years in Microsoft software development for various companies, including SMS (Shared Medical Systems), Siemens, Parts.com, etc.

I have Microsoft certification in Visual Basic 5 and 6. Also I have taken a few graduate courses, but haven't the $$ to pursue a master's degree.

Most of my undergraduate work was done using ANSI C code on a VAX/VMS mainframe system prior to the introduction of home PCs. I have used many many languages and many different compilers and IDEs for those languages.

Computer Science

My bachelor's degree is in computer science. I have worked as a software developer in multiple languages for the last 15+ years. Currently I am developing in C, .Net and Java.

Criminal Justice

Well, one of my majors for my bachelor's degree was Criminal Justice. I took courses in the history of Criminal Justice in America and American Prison Systems.

I took criminal psychology and criminology courses.

My overall GPA in all of these courses was 3.5 or better. Law and criminal justice is something I am still very interested in, so I read a lot of current information on cases and legal decisions.

Visual Basic

I have a bachelor's degree from Lycoming College in Computer Science, and have worked for 15+ years in Microsoft software development for various companies.

I have Microsoft certification in Visual Basic 5 and 6. I have worked in various versions of .NET (VB 2005, 2008) and am currently working toward updating my Microsoft certifications.

Thank God For Susan! — After one tutoring session with Susan my daughter called me to say that she not only extended her session by another hour but she could actually do her homework! My daughter was skeptical at best about getting a tutor, is terrified of math and is not a "people person". Imagine my surprise when she asked me if she could tutor more frequently with Susan to learn more. ...
