About Suzanna

I have been working with young students, their parents, and new teachers for a few decades now, and I have the experience necessary to help children succeed in school and become confident learners. WIth a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education and 34 years of teaching experience, I have had the privilege of teaching over 1000 children and helping each one achieve the next academic skill set. As a parent myself, I imagine that you are looking for a tutor who will appreciate your child's efforts and see precisely how to bring your child to each next step in learning. I work with children's individual learning styles and strengths, using a variety of materials and activities to help them master new material and skills. I hope that you will consider me as a tutor for your child. I am available evenings and weekends.

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)

I have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education (K-3) and over 30 years of teaching experience. I also have tutored my own younger siblings, my daughter, and many of her friends in all areas of the curriculum.

Handwriting

I have been teaching handwriting for 13 years. I have been using the Handwriting Without Tears system. I work with students on posture, pencil grip, letter formation, and other associated skills.

Phonics

A mastery of phonics rules (not sight word memorizing) empowers children to read! I work with children on letter sounds, blends, spelling rules, and breaking words down into syllables. Also, children often are motivated by reading and writing that is meaningful to them. I have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education (K-3) and over 30 years of teaching experience.
