About Suzanne

I recently retired from the Washoe County School District where I taught at the same small school for twenty nine years. I have taught both kindergarten and first grade and fully understand how to teach reading. I have taught hundreds of students to read and write. I have taught families of students and have a good reputation. I enjoy watching the students learn and improve their skills.

My main objective has been to make my students better readers. I have taken countless classes to improve my teaching skills. I have a Masters degree in Creative Arts in Learning. I think it's important to make learning fun and to connect learning with student interests.

I think that you would find me friendly and flexible. I would love to meet you and your child and provide a great tutoring experience!

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.

Reading

I have taught as a first grade teacher for 17 years and as a kindergarten teacher for 12 years all at the same school. I always felt that I was best at teaching students reading and language arts.
I like to use an eclectic approach combining phonics instruction with sight reading, spelling and writing. It's important to make reading fun and to encourage a life long love of learning.
My master's degree is in creative arts in education. Keeping up on new trends and taking many courses in reading and language arts have been a priority. I have earned a distinguished teacher award from the Washoe County Teacher's Association.
