About Susan

I am a certified language instructor with over 20 years experience tutoring Spanish and French with local high schools and community college. Recently I have tutored online as well. I have traveled extensively and studied in Mexico and Spain. I have a Master's Degree in Spanish Literature. I feel that one on one tutoring of a subject helps a student reach his/her full potential and I can offer much patience for the student to reach his/her goals. If a person can communicate in another language he/she has an excellent opportunity to understand other cultures and integrate himself/herself in that society.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I have experience with WyzAnt students tutoring English as a second language and college English (writing). I enjoy helping students with this subject and have much patience with them.

ESL/ESOL

I have experience in teaching ESL to students in Mexico City, Mexico. I taught ESL for two years in the capital city. The two schools where I taught were Interlingua de Mexico and Harmon Hall. I traveled throughout Mexico City for Interlingua de Mexico giving classes to corporations such as Sabritas, a potato chip company. Harmon Hall had intensive visual English classes in branches in the capital city

Recently, I taught an individual ESL to a Venezuelan student at the Las Mariposas Learning Center in Ballston Spa. I am able to have insight to teach English because I also tutor Spanish and I am aware of the unique problems people have learning both languages. I strive to make people feel comfortable with my classes since I know what it is like to learn another language.










French

I have studied French for many years and can communicate in the language. I have traveled to France and Montreal where I have utilized the French language.

Spanish

Spanish is a very important language in today's society since many people speak this language. It is not a difficult language to learn since it is spelled exactly like it is pronounced with only a few exceptions. It is spoken by many people today.
