Elementary (K-6th)

I teach kindergarten in MCPS and am confident in my ability to teach K-1 subjects in reading , math, writing, science and social studies. I am familiar with curriculum 2.0 which is used in MCPS. I could remediate reading and writing in 2nd grade because the skills would be at the level of a kindergartner or first grader.
Handwriting,

Handwriting

I teach kindergarten so I teach handwriting/letter formation on a regular basis. I have lined whiteboards that I use for instruction. I also have a number of activities that I use to develop fine motor skills which are pre-handwriting skills. I am not familiar with cursive handwriting and letter formation.
Phonics,

I have successfully taught kindergarten for the past 30+ years. MCPS kindergarten includes foundational skills which includes phonics instruction.

Very attentive very experience prepared teacher !

This was just our very first lesson , she was able to keep my daughter engaged the entire time . Being "4" is hard when you had preschool and then being tutored . She was prepared with materials to help her to know my daughters strength and weakness. She was able to get an understanding of what lesson she needed to prepare to help my daughter . She also made her a booklet with letters along with cut outs and a cute little tote bag . This gave My daughter confidence and she was already asking when she will return . Wealth of experience , very knowledgeable always helps when your a county teacher and familiar with the structure .

Thank you so much for your kind feedback. I look forward to working with your daughter.

Helped my sons tremendously

Susan has helped by older son who was struggling to stay at grade level in reading to being well above grade level. She helped my little one learn how to read and write. She's great!

Organized, personable and concerned tutor.

We have only had one session, but I am pleased that we did. Susan was organized and helpful, and had a good rapport with my grandson.
