About Susan

I am a mature, highly personable and educated individual who tutors in verbal skills (reading, spelling, and vocabulary) and verbal test preparation (ACT/SAT). I am happy to work with beginning readers, gifted early readers, and delayed readers needing remedial work. I have a BA from Harvard University (magna cum laude), a Master's in Journalism from Columbia University School of Journalism (with honors and awards), an editing certification in Life Sciences as well as an advanced science degree. I worked for many years as a Senior Editor at a major publishing house, including writing dictionaries, English usage books and fun vocabulary books and have been employed as a senior medical writer. I will tutor children as young as 4.

I am happy to provide more information as necessary and to answer your questions.

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.

ACT English

I am well acquainted with the format of the test as well as the actual subject matter. I have a BA magna cum laude from Harvard, an MSJ (master's in journalism) from Columbia University School of Journalism, and many years of professional experience as an editor and a writer.
