About Sue

"Complicated made easy" is my approach to teaching. First, I believe every subject can be broken down into its simpler parts. Second, once I determine just how a person learns, I present the material in simple building blocks so that he/she grasps it easily. Progress is made!

Along with my highly-successful approach, I have over 10,000 hours of experience teaching ESL, Writing, & Test-Taking strategies. They say it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert. I'm well beyond that.

EDUCATION: A Master's Degree in Cultural & Linguistic Diversity with a concentration in ESL & cross-cultural training. Professional Training in accent reduction, test-taking strategies as well as SAT essay & iBT TOEFL essay.

EXPERIENCE: 16+ years teaching at an Ivy League university - the University of Pennsylvania - & Delaware Community College. Plus, 8 years as the in-house language
trainer at Wyeth/Pfizer Pharmaceutical company teaching global clientele. During this time, I won numerous teaching awards including a National Teacher's Award.


EXPERTISE: ESL - all levels, all skills, all ages.
TEST-TAKING - TOEFL iBT prep, test-taking strategies, SAT essay writing, SAT reading and vocabulary, English, business writing, grammar, and all levels of academic and conversational ESL.

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.

ESL/ESOL

TESOL Masters + 16 years experience teaching all levels of ESL to all ages.

Key areas of expertise include: Accent reduction, Conversational English - beginner to advanced, Speaking and listening strategies, essential writing skills, all levels of grammar, cross-cultural training,cultural adaptive strategies, Business English and Business Writing.

Outstanding evaluations.

Grammar

16 years teaching grammar from beginning level to advanced - SAT exam, TOEFL, TOEIC, Business Grammar + Business Writing.

Outcome: Test scores showing marked improvement.

Taught grammar at the ivy league university, The University of Pennsylvania, and in pharmaceutical companies to doctors, research scientists, business executives etc.

Tutoring classes integrate grammar with speaking, listening, and writing for most effective and comprehensive results.

SAT Reading

For many years, I have taught test-taking strategies for the reading & writing sections of the SAT. These strategies have proven to be infallible.

Along with test-taking strategies, I also focus on time management for each section, vocabulary in context clues, outlining etc.

Not only do practice drills in strategies and time management build the confidence needed to override test-taking anxiety, they also fortify the skill sets needed to achieve a high score.

TOEFL

University of Pennsylvania:

Taught test-taking strategies for internet based TOEFL preparation for graduate students and doctors.

Raised scores markedly, resulting in many students being accepted at their first-choice graduate programs.

Classes include: test-taking strategies, time management, language tactics, and note-taking. Plus, classes target specific ESL language skills that need improvement. Plenty of preparatory practice sessions + practice tests.
