About Susan

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.

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.

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.

Electrical Engineering

I have over 25 years experience as an Electrical Engineer in an industrial setting. My specialty is teaching PLC programming in a variety of controllers. I have also taught microelectronics and circuits. I enjoy working individually with people who are looking to gain their journeyman certification for the electrical trades.

Regents

I have successfully tutored several students in Regents Common Core Algebra 1 and Algebra 2/Trigonometry over the past two years. I grew up in NY and successfully passed all the Regents exams all the way through high school at a Mastery level (85+) and recently had some professional development regarding the grading of the extended response questions. I can help your student understand how to gain the most points and be confidently ready for the test.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Susan was extremely patient she noticed early on that I lack confidence in my abilities. She is extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to learn with. She taught me any Beta and hypothesis testing.
