About Susan

Greetings. I have been teaching students of all ages since 1996 in the states of NY, NC, GA, SC and KS. My students come from diverse backgrounds and offer a great deal to any person that they encounter. I've taught and continue to teach in a variety of settings, including public and private, schools and residential, classrooms. This variety has also been enhanced by working in a military setting. I have experience as a registered Facilitator and Counselor for Georgia and South Carolina Virtual Schools. Previous Georgia Teacher Certification areas include Preschool through grade 12 for general curriculum, social sciences, adapted curriculum and behavior disorders. I currently hold a Kansas teaching license with a pending license in NY, as I have recently returned to permanently reside in my hometown community.

I value education, both learning and teaching. I graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Lifespan Development. When it came time to choose a career I began exploring different fields through volunteer work. These areas included schools, hospitals, churches and charitable organizations. Eventually, I selected to obtain a Master of Education at North Carolina State University. Teaching allows me to continue learning and provide a rewarding experience for prospective students.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my background. I look forward to assisting you with your educational needs. Please share your thoughts.

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)

While teaching at the K-6th grade levels, I was able to master a full understanding of the expectations for students at these ages. Additionally, throughout my education and professional experiences I have gained a keen insight for lifespan development from infancy through adulthood. A few of these experiences include the following:

Performed teaching responsibilities for children with a variety of special needs. Administered standardized testing, including statewide, psychometric and educational. Collected and presented data to ensure valid and reliable measurement of student performance. Maintained daily logs of performance on behavioral, educational, social, communicative, emotional development. Worked closely with outside agencies to obtain appropriate services for students, including referral, assessment, program development and delivery of services. Developed and implemented full spectrum transition plans. Collaborated with staff to consult and solve specific problematic classroom issues. Successfully included children with disabilities in a variety of mainstreamed settings. Completed numerous schoolwide responsibilities.

Assisted in establishment of the classroom for children with autism. Performed a variety of functions in teaching children with autism, including classroom management, direct instruction, facilitated individual and group reading and writing sessions, and organized/scheduled independent learning sessions. Produced numerous novel and interesting classroom materials. Supported children in the included classroom. Informally and formally assessed student progress toward the IEP goals. Developed behavioral contracts and systems of classroom management.
