Patient and very detailed!!

Susan was great with my son today. She was very detailed and took the time to assess his strengths and weaknesses. He was very comfortable and confident when he left.

Great tutor

Susan is really great with my son and very patience. Just hearing from her that my son is ahead of the game and will do great in Kindergarten warm my heart. If you liking for a tutor who loves what she does Susan is your girl.

Patient and knowledgable

We love Susan. She is patient and knowledgeable. She takes time with my child. She's helped my child in the areas he's been struggling. He's been making so much progress with Susan. We love her and my son does as well.

Very dedicated and knowledgeable tutor

My 9-year old daughter has been working with Susan in reading over the summer. Susan has impressed me with her knowledge about teaching reading at not only the elementary level, but also much higher level. From the testing to understand my daughter's reading level to choosing the best materials and approach to improve her reading comprehension, vocabulary, and and writing, Susan has been showing great dedication and experiences that make my daughter open up her shell and thrive. I can tell that my daughter has improved a lot in reading skills and is able to develop good strategy when reading both fiction and non-fiction books. She is now reading and writing above her grade level. We are so thrilled to have Susan as our tutor.

Excellent tutor!

Susan has done an excellent job helping my son regain his confidence. We hired her to help our son prepare for ITBS testing. He has struggled in this area and Susan not only has helped him prepare for the test, but she also helped him find his confidence to successfully take this test. This confidence has also spilled over into how he now feels about school overall. Susan is very knowledgeable, is patient, and really takes her time explaining things. When my son makes a mistake, she corrects him in a way to help him learn from it versus feeling bad about it. He knows his sessions with her are a huge help to him and he will go into taking the ITBS test for the first time feeling good about it. I highly recommend Susan to any student!

Wonderful Tutor!

Susan K. has tutored my 11 year old daughter this summer in math. My child is very bright but struggles with math. Susan uses different teaching methods based on my daughter's learning style and adjusts to her needs and speed. For concepts that were difficult, she has been patient and made sure my daughter understood before moving on. She made my child feel comfortable. She has built my daughter's confidence with her math skills and given her ideas on different ways to learn the subject. Susan has also done a great job of providing feedback to me as the parent on areas to work on and what are my child's strengths. She has been very flexible with her schedule as well. I certainly would recommend her as a tutor for any subject.
