About Susan

As a teacher since 1989, I have taught at both the middle school and high school level. My degree is in middle grades education, and I became highly certified in all high school sciences also. I have been teaching Earth Environmental Science to students for over the past ten years. I have also taught English, communication skills, and history at the middle grades level. I tutor students weekly on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for the past ten years.

Tutoring provides you a chance to a more individualized learning experience that most people enjoy! As the mother of children with academic and physical challenges, I am aware that everyone learns at a different pace and has their own individual learning style; this is something I can appreciate and work with as I work with a variety of students and my own children on a daily basis.

I have been teaching Earth Environmental Science for over the past ten years.

Vocabulary is essential to understanding any subject matter; as a teacher certified in both science and communication skills, I believe in a four by four teaching tactic. A student must be exposed and use vocabulary at least four times in different formats to enable them to store vocabulary in the long term memory.

As the mother of two, I faced the challenge of teaching my children to write. Due to limited hand mobility, I learned that cursive handwriting can often be easier than manuscript for students.

I have worked with at risk students in the majority of educational employment, and I have learned that study techniques and test taking tips are essential to ones success.

I am available to meet with students in both the Beaufort and Pitt County area, and my schedule is flexible for the summer. Don't lose skills over the summer!
