About Susan


Bio

After 25 years as an Electrical Engineer, I have chosen to change careers to teaching mathematics and technology to middle and high school students. I spent many years mentoring electricians through apprenticeship programs and noticed that I spent much of my time teaching them mathematics. I also loved working with students in middle school careers classes where I could show them why learning mathematics was a necessary life skill.

After 25 years as an Electrical Engineer, I have chosen to change careers to teaching mathematics and technology to middle and high school students. I spent many years mentoring electricians through apprenticeship programs and noticed that I spent much of my time teaching them mathematics. I also loved working with students in middle school careers classes where I could show them why learning mathematics was a necessary life skill.

I completed my Master's degree in inclusive Secondary Mathematics Education at SUNY Brockport in June 2016. I have taught and privately tutored students from 5th grade through college in middle school math, Common Core Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus and Statistics. I really enjoy working one-on-one and in small group settings with students who are either struggling or need extra challenges.

Please feel free to contact me about personalized tutoring in middle and high school mathematics. My specialty is helping students to learn methods to work through word problems and review for the NY Regents and College Entrance exams.

Common Core

I have recently taken two courses in teaching Common Core mathematics at the middle and high school levels at SUNY Brockport as part of my Masters program in Education where I have a 4.0 GPA. I have completed 4 semesters of observation and student teaching of Common Core mathematics including 6th and 7th grade, Algebra 1, and Geometry. I have prepared students for both the Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 & Trigonometry Regents exams through the Gillam Grant Learning Center. I enjoy teaching the process of working through word problems since this is a large component of the Common Core mathematics curriculum.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

She taught me how to start my PLC logic program which included timers. She is very patient and really knowledgeable in this subject. Would definitely recommend.

Great teacher! Very patient!

Lessons with Susan are going really well. As an adult going back to school after being out of school for so long, school had been more of a struggle. Susan is patient and doesn't make you feel dumb even when you make easy mistakes. She's been super helpful and I would highly recommend her!

Susan the Saint!!!

Susan is so incredibly patient! I really face challenges with understanding Statistics and Susan breaks it down, answers all questions I have and does not rush through a topic just to get it covered. I feel very lucky that I found her!

Explains concepts well

She helped with with electrical circuits and she did a wonderful job simplifying the concepts for me to understand. She even went beyond and gave me material that would help with my homework.

Ivana, 1 lesson with Susan

Easy to comprehend

My session with Susan was great. She gave me an assessment to see what my strengths and weaknesses were and built the lesson around my results. She made math easy for me to comprehend by teaching it in a basic way by providing the foundation first.
