About Susan


Bio

I feel I can help students with English, reading and writing. I volunteered with the literacy council and was teaching English. I have always done well in English classes. My love for reading goes back to my childhood and trips to the public library. I spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy as a journalist. I earned a bachelor's degree in communications from the University of Maryland University College and a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Illinois Chicago. ...

I feel I can help students with English, reading and writing. I volunteered with the literacy council and was teaching English. I have always done well in English classes. My love for reading goes back to my childhood and trips to the public library. I spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy as a journalist. I earned a bachelor's degree in communications from the University of Maryland University College and a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Illinois Chicago. While I have never formally been a tutor, I have helped friends with their college classes. It gives me a good feeling to help someone, even if it is just looking over what they have written and making suggestions for improvements. Sometimes it just takes a different approach to help a person understand.

My current job requires me to transcribe and draft minutes from meetings, compile data and conduct some research. I also frequently proofread presentations, policies, and other correspondence. As a journalist in the Navy, I researched and wrote stories for a weekly base newspaper. I was also editor of the paper, which required me to proofread all items. I have great attention to detail. I always loved reading and writing and my career as a journalist enhanced those skills.

I am a very patient person and get along well with others. While I don't have any formal experience as a tutor or teacher, I feel that I can help students with English, reading and writing. I do work full time, but am available most week nights after 4 p.m., and weekend days. Sessions would be approximately two hours long, with a minimum time of one hour.

I feel I am qualified to tutor in study skills because I have two bachelor degrees, with most of the classes being completed online. This takes a great deal of focus, time management and attention to detail. I like to find out what works best. Some people need to do a lot of hands on practice problems while others feel that writing things down and taking lots of notes helps them remember. Personally, I do a combination of both, depending on the subject.
