About Susana

Hello, my name is Susana. I have graduated from IUPUI with a Bachelor's in International Studies. I have also just returned from a summer abroad teaching 3rd/4th graders in a Turkish private institution intensive English for a summer camp. It was one of the most rewarding and fulfilling experiences I have ever encountered and my love of teaching has grown more. Since High School, I have had the pleasure of tutoring 2nd/3rd/4th graders English as their second language after school in the elementary school I had graduated from. Every child I have encountered has touched my heart and made me want to give back even more, which is why I feel teaching is such a great career.

Many students learn better outside of the classroom in a one-on-one setting and I have enjoyed this type of teaching the most because I can focus all my energy on the one student. I love watching my students grow to their full potential. I loved tutoring so much that I even offered Spanish tutoring my University since I am fluent in it as well. I tutored a Professor of Chinese in my university in conversational Spanish for his trip to Argentina. I am able to teach for specific requirements such as travel and even study. I have had the most experience tutoring in English and Spanish, but I have also had some experience tutoring younger children in elementary education.

I am highly motivated and creative. I am flexible with my schedule and able to adjust lesson plans based on the students learning ability. My experience is most with younger children and college students but I am willing to work with students of all ages.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to teaching students and watching them reach each of their potentials.

Sincerely,

Susana

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

My experience in teaching has been with younger children in elementary school varying from inner city schools and private schools both in the United States and out of the country. My methods are usually based on a "web" style by trying out one style of teaching and seeing the possible methods unfold with the student on how it is best to continue teaching them and then going from there because each student is unique and some respond to one learning method than another.

ESL/ESOL

I have experience teaching a range of students, from small children to adults, in ESL at various levels. I have experience teaching abroad as well, at an intensive English summer camp in Turkey.

Spanish

Spanish is one of my native languages, and I have taught it mostly to college level students and working professionals in my university. I have experience teaching conversational Spanish as well as reading and writing formal language.
