About Susan

For over 22 years I have taught hundreds of children and have a reputation for providing appropriate content to support student engagement and success in a nurturing environment. Additionally, I have many years of experience tutoring students further strengthening their confidence and ability to actively participate in their classrooms and beyond.

Language Arts, particularly in the area of reading and writing has always been my area of expertise. My Masters degree focused on Curriculum and Instruction as well as reading pathology.

I was selected by the Council of Chief State Officers to be one of the 18 writers in the country that wrote the Common Core State Standards in the area of Language Arts. These are currently the standards that most teachers are responsible for following and being one of the authors provides me with an exceptional view of the requirements and prepares students for assessments as well.

I look forward to working with students, motivating them and helping them to become active participants in the global community. My goal is to help students rise to be confident, engaged and successful learners.

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.

Common Core

In 2009, I was selected by the Chief State School Officers to be on the committee that was responsible for the writing of the CCSS.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been an educator for 22 years specializing in grades 1-5. My Masters degree focused on curriculum and instruction for elementary grades.

Phonics

So much of early reading skills focus on both phonemic awareness as well as decoding by understanding and utilizing phonics skills. Both as an educator and tutor, I have taught hundreds of students to read paying close attention to help them gain an understanding of the importance of phonics skills.

Reading

I have a Masters degree in curriculum and instruction with a specialization in reading.
