About Sue

Hi there! I am excited about the possibility of providing tutoring to your child! I've always worked with children , both in preschool and elementary. I began my career working in a school for special needs students which taught me a lot about breaking down skills into small achievable activities so the children could experience success! Several years teaching preschool (while my own children were young) reinforced this and prepared me for teaching kindergarten in a private setting, then 1st-2nd in public school. I finished up my teaching career as an intervention teacher for 3rd graders in an inner city magnet school. During that time, I worked for a McKinney-Vento program tutoring homeless high schoolers. After moving to this area, I worked for several years at an after school program for struggling 2nd and 3rd graders as the STEM teacher.

My goal has always been to make learning fun and meaningful! By helping the students make connections to the material being presented, my hope is that progress will be achieved and the new skills will be remembered!

My experience working with a variety of ages helps me know what skills are required to provide a firm foundation for later learning. By using topics that each student is interested in makes learning fun and memorable!

I have worked with students with a variety of learning styles and realize the importance of tailoring instruction to make the most of each child's strengths.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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 received my degree in Child Development from the University of Delaware. I taught in the public schools for 15 years with 1-3rd graders and in private school with kindergarteners. After moving here, I worked at an after school program for struggling 2nd and 3rd graders as a STEM teacher.

I have my reading certification and have taught phonics with elementary students as a classroom teacher and interventionist.
