About Susan


Bio

After twenty years of teaching at all levels, I effectively tutor students and achieve quick success in the following areas: reading, writing, mathematics, SAT/ACT exams, study skills, dyslexia support services, Orton-Gillingham Method reading recovery, English as a Second Language (ESL), learning techniques for autistic students, and online tutoring systems (Plato, USA Learns, Wyzant).

After twenty years of teaching at all levels, I effectively tutor students and achieve quick success in the following areas: reading, writing, mathematics, SAT/ACT exams, study skills, dyslexia support services, Orton-Gillingham Method reading recovery, English as a Second Language (ESL), learning techniques for autistic students, and online tutoring systems (Plato, USA Learns, Wyzant).

Developing life-long learners and assisting students with reading delays has been the focus of my 20-year career. Successful students organize information and then use applied practice techniques to retain and synthesize this knowledge in their lives. I am committed to assisting students to achieve these skills and to invest in themselves.

Currently, I am an adjunct professor at Lanier Technical College teaching mathematics and English. Also, I proctor the SAT and ACT exams. In addition, I have a reading teacher license and specialize in helping dyslexic students attain their academic goals. Besides being a published writer and editor, I also serve as a speaker regarding educational issues.

Besides teaching, I ride with my horse, walk my dogs, and play guitar.

I have a k-12 certification for teaching reading and am trained in the Orton-Gillingham Method of reading recovery. In addition, I have worked with autistic, deaf, and dyslexic elementary students. I truly enjoy working with elementary students, especially in reading.

Serving dyslexic, delayed, and disinterested readers, I am a Reading and English teacher trained in the Orton Gillingham Method, Wilson Method, and MTA (Multi-sensory Learning Approach). Phonemic awareness, fluency, accuracy, and comprehension are the goals of my lesson plans. The components of my lessons are research-based and engaging activities to keep a student's attention and increase the enjoyment of reading.

Study Skills

I am a reading teacher who also taught study skills at the high school and middle school levels. Mind maps and graphic organizers are important to a student's development of study skills. Also, Cornell notes are invaluable in a student's career. Just getting a student to organize their folder seems to work wonders for them. There are other little tips, like reading non-fiction with a different technique, that will help a student be more successful in the classroom.

Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

Over the last 15 years, I have taught dyslexic students in a reading lab and screened for dyslexia for a school district. I use the Orton-Gillingham method and supplement it with Read Naturally and a computer program called Fast Forward. Using multi-sensory techniques helps students acquire phonemic awareness and comprehension. Staying current on brain research also shape my choices in material and presentation. Currently, I am privately tutoring dyslexic students in three counties.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Susan summed up my son's reading defiencies to comprehension and began to show me strategies for helping him to comprehend what he was reading. She was very knowledgeable and patient with my son, who was very active. I will schedule more tutoring sessions with Susan!
