About Susanne

For a child and youth, reading is equivalent to riding a bicycle: it expands your horizon immediately. I will never forget the look on my daughter's face when she realized this, the freedom to explore, the ability to imagine. Proficient readers do well in all subjects, reading and writing is the foundation of it all. I have spent my entire career as a writer and have tutored off and on over the last 30 years. Being able to read, write and comprehend makes us literate, it boosts self esteem, not only for children and youth but also for adults.

I believe in meeting my students where they are and helping them learn with the materials they enjoy and materials that are meaningful to them: Captain Underpants, Reptiles and Amphibians, People magazine, the newspaper, cook books, Yahoo (yes, I've recommended reading whatever comes up on the screen whenever the computer logs onto the internet) ... it doesn't really matter what we read or write about, what matters is that it captures our interests and keeps our interests.

It is my goal that all children go to school, ready to learn. They will only learn when they understand and they will only understand if they can read, write and comprehend the subject matter.
