Susan holds 2 Illinois teaching certificates, a Masters Degree, and a Bachelors Degree in Spanish Education. She has 20 years of classroom experience teaching all ages of students, specializing in high school and college students, and adults. She is a renown Spanish teacher, combining many years of experience with recent academic training of best instructional practices (e.g. scaffolding, modeling, reflective teaching, differentiation) for the acquisition of all skills of foreign language; i.e. listening, speaking, reading, writing. Her innovative teaching strategies reflect her vast knowledge and skills in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

In addition to support for the struggling student and enrichment for the succeeding student, Susan offers tutoring for students who are preparing for standardized exams: the Spanish AP language or literature exams, the CEEB language test, or the college proficiency exams.

Susan teaches to a wide range of ability levels and learning styles. She offers her services to special needs students, Bilingual students, adult students preparing for travel or new jobs. She customizes her services for tutoring or teaching to individuals, classes, or other teachers seeking tutorials to improve their own teaching strategies.

Susan distinguished herself when she initiated, designed and taught the first interdisciplinary course of its kind in Illinois for the acquisition of language proficiency through the academic content of social sciences. She also expanded high school Spanish programs to all levels of course offerings and contributed to schools becoming foreign language academies. She has piloted television courses for all domains of language acquisition at the college level. She has successfully persuaded school districts to offer foreign language instruction at the primary grades by her research and presentations as to how the brain learns language.

Susan is a native speaker since early childhood. She has lived in Spain and Costa Rica, has traveled extensively

Very Effective Tutor!

Susan has been working with my high school daughter, who appears to be greatly benefiting so far. We are encouraged by the progress made to date and are grateful for Susan's dedication, perseverance and expertise!

Great teacher

Susan has been an excellent Spanish tutor to my daughter. She has carefully taught my daughter the grammar concepts and vocabulary, and my daughter has greatly improved her pronunciation under Susan's guidance.

Excellent Tutor

My son needed some help and is now getting it. After looking around Susan looked to be the best pick. We were right! Spanish is fun for him again! Now I have to reach 160 characters for this review so will continue to type! :-)

Susan is the best!

Before my daughter started with Susan she hated Spanish and was getting C's and D's in her Spanish level 2 High School class. After working with Susan she has gotten her first A! She can't stop talking about how much she loves working with her and how Susan has made Spanish fun. My daughter even goes into class and talks about Susan and what they did the night before and now the whole class also loves her. She has taken my child from sheer misery to sheer joy! Susan truly is the best.

Engaging and energetic!

Susan is great at engaging my high schooler and making the lesson fun while he learns Spanish! She has been helping him prepare for an upcoming final. Thank you, Susan!

Knowledgeable and gets results!

Susan has been tutoring my sophomore highschooler in Spanish . She has identified my son's gaps and quickly put together a plan to build the foundational skills long term while also addressing the short term need to bring up the grade from a 71% to an 86% before quarter end. She focuses on how your student learns best. Highly recommend!

Thanks Susan

My daughter has studied with Susan for several months now and she has made excellent progress. Her spoken skills have significantly improved. She is going to take Spanish Honors III this Fall, and she has become quite comfortable speaking Spanish. Thanks, Susan.

Outstanding!

Susan is a top "pro" in tutoring Spanish students! She provided conscientious, in-depth and excellent assistance for my son in "catching up" with his middle-school Spanish class, grasping grammatical concepts and syntax, completing homework, preparing for tests, and becoming motivated to conquer what has been his most difficult subject. Among other things, Susan was impressively adept at working with his "learning style" so that session results were maximized. Highly recommend!

Knowledgeable Tutor

Susan has been an excellent teacher to my son for Spanish III. She began working with him mid-quarter and helped him get an A on the final which raised his grade from a high C to a high B. Her knowledge of Spanish and her teaching technique have been invaluable to my son's understanding, knowledge, confidence and participation in this subject. We are continuing lessons with her this term and his grade has been an A all semester. Susan is a good communicator and has provided honest feedback. She has gone the extra mile to find time to meet with my son; she even scheduled a tutor lesson the night she got back from vacation because it was the only time my son could meet. I really appreciate her commitment to having my son succeed. We live 1/2 the country away from her, but the Skype tutoring is successful. We recommend that you meet and work with Susan for Spanish.
