About Susan

I have over five years of experience tutoring science and math to college and high school students. I have tutored at The College of St. Catherine, Albuquerque Technical Vocational Institute, The New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, and Socorro High School. I have tutored Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry, Geometry, Algebra, and Finite Math.

At The College of St. Catherine, I started as a Respiratory Therapy Major. Then I decided that I loved science so much, I transferred to the St. Paul Campus and became a Chemistry Major. While attending St. Catherine's, I received The Polymer Education Award for Organic Chemistry and was inducted into The Honor Society for Women in Chemistry, Iota Sigma Pi. Then, I decided to enter graduate school a year early. I earned a Master of Science Degree in Geochemistry from The New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in Socorro, New Mexico. As a graduate student, I developed thesis research to examine the adsorption of crude oil components onto mineral surfaces for The New Mexico Petroleum Recovery Research Center. As a student intern,I performed materials synthesis, ceramic processing, and inorganic synthesis at Sandia National Laboratory. In my professional life, I have over ten years experience as a chemist with the Federal Government analyzing pesticides for the FDA and the USDA.

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.
