About Susanne

After retirement from 25 years of teaching in the NJ public school system, I have tutored small groups and individuals in all subject areas on an elementary level, SAT language and reading, and middle-high school language and reading.

My therapy dog often accompanies me and greatly increases motivation, as well as comfort and enjoyment during the learning process. He is a small loving dog (ShihTzu) who has proven to increase student concentration and performance. This is optional.

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 (K-6th)

I have taught all elementary levels during the course of my educational career. I taught grades 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 in the public schools in NJ. I taught gifted and talented, grade 6, for several of those years.
Upon retiring, I tutored children on all elementary grade levels. I also taught remedial reading and math in a variety of private schools during my post public school years of instruction.

SAT Reading

I tutored students in reading and math SAT's in New Jersey several years ago.
I am able to gain access to relevant materials for Florida if necessary.
Language Arts are my specialty of choice.
I taught for 25 years in the NJ public schools. Following my retirement, I tutored extensively I'm all subject areas.
My SAT tutoring experience were at a shelter where abused mothers stayed with their children.
The students were not able to attend regular school for security reasons.
I was not able to follow up on these students, but hopefully they did well on the tests and were given the opportunity to continue their education upon graduation from high school.

Study Skills

During my 25 years of teaching every major subject on the elementary level, study skills were integrated into instruction for all the subjects, as well as taught separately on the middle school level.
I helped students to improve their test scores as well as overall performance by learning and applying a variety of study skills.
After retirement, I tutored for several years, and noticed that the student' subject competencies improved when taught specific strategies for studying, i.e., study skills.
