About Sue Ann


Bio

I've been teaching someone and something since I was 16 years old! I started by teaching children with disabilities how to swim at the local Y. I've taught junior and high school English and Speech; undergraduate and graduate students including masters level and doctoral degree seeking students AND, many of my former students consider me their mentor - we stay in touch via Facebook, letters, and postcards.

I've been teaching someone and something since I was 16 years old! I started by teaching children with disabilities how to swim at the local Y. I've taught junior and high school English and Speech; undergraduate and graduate students including masters level and doctoral degree seeking students AND, many of my former students consider me their mentor - we stay in touch via Facebook, letters, and postcards.

My favorite subjects to teach or tutor are related to public speaking, reading and writing, although I'm skilled in qualitative research, higher education and student affairs and nonprofit leadership and management as well. I've been told my editing skills are outstanding, as evident to students who have seen tremendous improvement in their ability to present their ideas both orally and in written form.

Teaching and tutoring students is a way for me to stay connected to and current about the fields of study I truly love!

What we learn through studying and mastering English, Literature, Public Speaking and Writing assist us to be stronger in our professions while allowing us to become more interesting people. My assistance will enable students to better understand the rationale behind their writing and to "make sense" of the materials they read in their coursework and future endeavors.

I know I can make a difference in YOUR learning and academic success. I look forward to hearing from you to schedule our collaborative sessions - soon!

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I was a champion debater and placed in extemporaneous public speaking contests in high school. Later as an undergraduate student I participated in oral interpretation and numerous public speaking events. As a professional in higher education and nonprofit leadership and management I have given 100 plus presentations and speeches at local, regional, national and international conferences. My undergraduate major was English, however, I took 18 hours in public speaking, communications, and oral interpretation courses as well. I require students to learn to make oral presentations in the classes I teach face-to-face, and have even required oral presentations (I establish the expectations and use a rubric for grading) when the technology is available in my online teaching.
