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.

Patient and versatile tutor

Both of my sons, 11 and 4, took well to Ms. Suzanna on the very first day of tutoring. Ms. Suzanna was great at keeping my 4 year well engaged for his weekly tutoring sessions.
