About Susan

Aloha! I've been a teacher and a principal for a total of 25 years, in Calif. and here in Lahaina. I just retired from Sacred Hearts School and miss being a part of the education field. I often helped kids when I was principal and believe I can explain math and science in many different ways depending on the learner.

I live in Lahaina and would love to tutor you in math, science, or whatever you need. I am patient, have a sense of humor and understand kids. I am not interested in wasting your time or mine so if you are looking for help that is a good sign. If you want to improve in your study habits and feel better about yourself and your studies, then let's work together and enjoy the process of building new or better skills. Where there's a will, there's a way!

I am patient, like math, and taught it to 6th, 7th, & 8th graders for several years at Sacred Hearts School. Our 8th grade math was using a high school freshman algebra 1 book. I also think helping students find out the information on-line is important, for example using Khan Academy. I am organized and think learning math is fun, even when it is a bit challenging.

I believe that we are all scientists in our everyday lives. We observe, question, make guesses, experiment all the time in our daily routines. I think it is important to be curious and know how to find the answers. It's a process. Learning about yourself and the world around is fun!

If you or your parents are on this website looking for a tutor then you must be motivated to improve. Send me a message and let's see where you are strong in your studies and then let's work to improve the areas where you are challenged. I loved school when I was young and I learned that a bit of effort goes a long way. Perhaps working with you will get you where you want to be in your studies... give me a try!
