About Susan

I am a certified elementary teacher who enjoys helping students develop a love of learning, especially reading and the English language. To increase my effectiveness, I recently took post-graduate classes in literacy and comprehension at Wayne State University. After receiving a U.S. Department of Education Scholarship, I taught 1st, 2nd and 5th grades. I have also tutored kindergarten to adult learners of English as a second language. Using a variety of teaching materials to match the students' learning style and interest I support students as they gain confidence in their own skills and master the learning process.
Give at least a 12 hour notice and you will receive a make-up day at a mutually agreed upon day and time. As a responsible educator, I take time to prepare materials that meet the student's needs and help them progress.
From my experience working at two tutoring centers and in the classroom, I am able to develop your reading fluency and show you strategies to sharpen your test-taking skills. Yes, you will experience growth in your English speaking, reading and writing abilities when you work with me.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a master's in Teaching from Wayne State University. I am certified to teach elementary in Michigan. I am trained in Orton-Gillingham hands-on methods of multi-sensory phonics instruction.

Reading

I am a certified teacher who has taught 1st, 2nd and 5th grades. I have taken additional classes in Reading and Literacy towards a special certification in this area. I also work in schools from K to 12 teaching English. When working with students, I use guided reading, retelling and phonetic(phonemic awareness) techniques.
