About Susan


Bio

I am honored to be recognized by Wyzant as a Top-100 tutor in the country for the years 2014 and 2015. (This is out of more than 77,000 tutors nationwide.)

I am a caring, creative, and patient teacher with over 20 years of classroom teaching and tutoring experience. I don't just know a subject, I know how to teach it. I have degrees in Linguistics and Psychology from the University of California at Berkeley, and have completed additional coursework towards a Masters degree in Education. ...

I am honored to be recognized by Wyzant as a Top-100 tutor in the country for the years 2014 and 2015. (This is out of more than 77,000 tutors nationwide.)

I am a caring, creative, and patient teacher with over 20 years of classroom teaching and tutoring experience. I don't just know a subject, I know how to teach it. I have degrees in Linguistics and Psychology from the University of California at Berkeley, and have completed additional coursework towards a Masters degree in Education. Because of my background, I am able to quickly assess and pinpoint the greatest areas of need that a student has, identify how the student best learns, and then tailor my teaching to best address my student's needs and learning style. That way our tutoring time is used both effectively and efficiently.

I have very successfully worked with a wide variety of students from ages 4 to adult, including international students, students who are academically gifted or talented, students who struggle with ADHD, Aspergers, executive functioning, and/or learning disabilities, as well as students who are school-reluctant and/or anxious. I have tailored full homeschooling programs for students who are unable to be in a classroom setting for various reasons. I excel in both motivating and encouraging the reluctant or challenged learner, as well as in challenging the gifted or talented student.

I am happy to either work with a student using materials provided or else to assess a student's needs and individualize a program of instruction that will most benefit him or her. I am also happy to work with or talk to a student's classroom teacher in order to better understand a student's needs or to advocate for him or her.

Younger Learners: I very much enjoy teaching early reading, writing, and math skills to young learners, and use a variety of games and activities to make learning exciting and fun for them. I also have experience in teaching enrichment and competitive math skills to elementary and middle school students, and have both been a math club coach and, during high school, a math team member.

Older Students: I work with older students to help them prepare for standardized tests such as the SSAT, the ISEE, the PSAT, the SAT, and the GRE. I also teach ESL to international students, helping them to improve their reading, writing, and speaking skills, and to achieve success on standardized tests such as the TOEFL. In addition, I have taught classes in writing skills, computer skills, presentation skills, and life skills, and I have written a number of computer training manuals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 13 years of classroom teaching experience, teaching students in all grades from PreK to Grade 8. I have taught all subjects typically found in an elementary school curriculum and have a solid understanding of the content mastery requirements at each grade level. I teach using a variety of teaching tools and techniques, individualizing instruction so that each student I tutor is taught in the way that he or she learns best. I also have completed graduate coursework toward an M.Ed. in elementary education.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I have years of experience teaching math as a classroom teacher, as a tutor, as a math club coach, and in coaching other teachers. I focus on helping my students to develop both improved content knowledge as well as learn helpful problem-solving strategies. My interest is in helping my students improve their analytical thinking and attain a deeper understanding of underlying concepts that will help them succeed, not only in their current class, but in math classes and on standardized tests in the future. I have had great success in helping math-phobic students gain confidence in their abilities, and in fact, come to regard math as one of their favorite subjects.
Study Skills,

Study Skills

As a classroom teacher with years of experience, I have had many students who have struggled with organization and study skills, and have seen first-hand the types of approaches that have worked for them as well as what has not helped. My approach is to treat each student as an individual, helping each one identify the specific strategies that work best for him or her. As part of that, I teach my students specific approaches to note-taking, including outlining, the Cornell method, charting, mapping, and (for math), a two-column approach. I also help them learn to take notes from both oral presentations, such as lectures, and from books. I help them learn to identify the different types of information that need to be included in their notes as well as the types of information that are extraneous. I also help students learn to read textbooks both for meaning and for locating specific information. I teach them strategies for studying for tests and for organizing schoolwork, belongings, and "life." I work with them on "meta" strategies, helping them to know themselves better and helping them come to determine which particular strategies work the best for them.

I have many years of experience, both within the classroom and privately, in working with students with ADHD. As part of this, I often work with the student on organizational and time management goals and on learning goals.

In addition, I have a lot of familiarity with IEPs and have experience in writing and revising goals and objectives, in interpreting neuropsychological reports, in advocating for students with teachers and with districts (by writing letters, making phone calls, and attending meetings), and in general, helping students receive the support they need in order to be successful.

ISEE,

ISEE

My teaching approach to the ISEE is very student-specific. I start by analyzing my student's specific strengths and weaknesses on a practice test so that our time together is spent in the most productive and efficient way possible. As we progress, what we spend time on each step of the way is in response to my student's evolving needs. In general, though, my teaching methods for the ISEE focus on helping students learn both overall testing strategies for scoring well on the test in general as well as content-specific strategies that will help them in each of the subtests. Because I have taught math for so many years, I know the content that is tested on the math portions of the ISEE extremely well. I also am familiar with all the typical "traps" that students fall into on these sections, and am able to help my students avoid them. On the essay portion of the test, I use the Six Traits writing model to help students improve their content, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, and conventions so that their essays will stand out. On the reading comprehension and verbal reasoning sections of the test, I help my students learn how to identify main and supporting ideas, how to figure out what the tone and style of a reading passage is, how to identify common literary techniques and figurative language, and how to recognize key words and phrases in the sentence completions that give clues to the correct responses.

Herman, 8 lessons with Susan

Susan is very knowledgeable in all subject areas and is able to assess what my son needs to improve his academics.

Susan is very patient, giving him time to think and she has a plan of action that is ongoing and flexible that works for my son. My son mentioned that he liked the way Susan explains each lesson he needs to learn or review. She is easier to understand by the way she breaks down the topics for him. Susan is also very positive with my son. She makes him feel confident about what he is learning and also makes him aware of the extra time he needs to put in at home to master what she is teaching him. Lastly, at the end of each session we discuss how the tutoring went, how he is working with the material at home and she will give me feedback/strategies that I can use with him at home.
