I am a certified middle school math teacher with experience teaching Math in grades 4 - 8. I also have experience with both the Connected Math and Singapore Math programs. Furthermore, I have tutored high school students in Algebra 1 and 2 and Geometry.
My educational background is in Economics. I have a degree in Economics and a Master's degree in Business Economics. I received my teaching certification from the College of Saint Elizabeth and I have been teaching Middle School Math for the past 8 years. I am currently taking Advanced Mathematics coursework at Rutgers University.
I am a friendly and positive person. I have three grown children of my own so I understand the student needs both from a teacher's and a parent's perspective. As a teacher and a tutor, it is essential that I establish a secure and comfortable relationship with my students so that they feel confident and not afraid to ask questions. I also ask my students many questions. I ask them to explain their process, how they solved a problem or arrived at their answer. In this way, I can better help and guide them in their learning and give them the tools they need to succeed in math. My ultimate goal is to help my students feel confident in math.

Recently I was looking for a tutor to meet with my son over the summer for a few weeks prior to school starting again - as a refresher before honors math in the fall. Susan was extremely responsive and easy to correspond with from the first email. She was very flexible and accommodating of our schedule. Susan worked so well with my 11 year old son - he felt immediately comfortable with her and their sessions were very productive. Susan communicated well with my son and they worked through a variety of different review problems and materials. Susan was clearly experienced in teaching math and tutoring - she tailored the sessions to my son's needs, asking him his reasoning for answering problems the way he did and working through his thought process, making corrections and walking him through the right processes when necessary. I think Susan provided a thorough review for my son and I couldn't be more satisfied.
When we started with Susan, our daughter was receiving C's on her assessments and had very little confidence in her math skills. Now she is receiving A's and B's and is even helping classmates when they work together in groups. Our daughter feels very comfortable with Susan and she has been very flexible working around all of our daughter's activities.
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.
