About Susan

My work as a substitute teacher has given me the opportunity to have a better understanding of the student needs and variety of techniques in teaching a wider range of students. However, my teaching experience as instructional aid really has changed my life. I am more knowledgeable in knowing what works and what does not.

My work as a student teacher allowed me to build strong planning skills. I worked with a diverse student population that was a challenge in learning styles. My student teaching experience was at a four star school.

I taught using the Indiana State Standards and school policies. I created a positive learning environment by designing interactive, technology based activities that engaged students and provided problem solving solutions.

I tutored 2 students for 2 years. Their letter grades went up a whole letter grade in each subject.

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 Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I have tutored students for 2 years. I believe that students can be taught by giving being shown how to solve problems or with examples. In addition, students learn from their mistakes with extra help. I really like to spend time working with students and see a big difference in their abilities. I can help in all subject areas in this way, especially in reading and math.
