About Suzanne

My ten plus years as a professional ballet dancer and rock climber have given me the skills to focus and to my limit and achieve my goals.

I hold a Master's Degree in Fine Arts in Writing from Columbia University and have more than 6 years' experience as a Writing Tutor, I am adept in high school, undergraduate and graduate school writing that includes entrance essays and thesis advising.

Moreover, while my on-the-job experience has afforded me a well-rounded skill set, including first-rate communication and presentation skills, I excel at:
Multi-tasking many students learning needs individually or in a group setting
Instructional material development
Progress reporting
Managing time for my own graduate level studies

In addition to my experience and personal qualities, I have a solid educational foundation and a passion for tutoring.

My background as a yogi, rock climber and ballet dancer provides me with a unique skill set that provides students with a lifelong knowledge of how to work through anxiety and to help them focus, freeing them up to achieve all their goals.

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.
