About Susan

As a teacher with over 20 years experience in education, I know the importance of either one-on-one or small group tutoring. Each of us have times when things are easier learned when we have some extra help.

I worked for period of years in the corporate world where I coordinated and taught a guest relations program. I then graduated with honors from Brenau University with a degree in middle grades education. I taught over six years at the elementary level where I addressed all subjects every day. I was recognized by my peers as a Teacher of the Month and by the administration as a Grade Level Chair. I have also been a curriculum lead for sixth grade social studies for over three years. I also taught Reading for one year and did volunteer work with students to increase their reading abilities.

I have a gifted endorsement and have used it to teach both elementary and middle grades gifted students. I also have the English as a Second Language endorsement and use the things I learned with this endorsement with many of my students. I have the classes for an endorsement in online teaching as I am working on my graduate degree in instructional technology.

I home schooled our son from second grade through high school. He will graduate this year as a teacher. I am very familiar with differentiating curriculum to meet the individual needs of each student (for learning styles, pacing and tiering).

In addition to my work in academic subjects, I also have extensive work in art - oils, watercolors, pen and ink, charcoal, and pencils. My work has been in galleries, and I have sold several pieces. I would love to set up single or group classes in art.

I would be more than willing to work with a group of students who need a particular subject taught for home-schooling. Let me know if I can help you in that way.

I have had a background check with Hall County Schools. I look forward to assisting you with your educational needs.

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.
