About Susan


Bio

I tutor one student at a time for 60 minutes at the rate of:

Math and Physics: $50/hr;
Computer Science: $55/hr

I have been tutoring my classmates in math since the 2nd grade! I have tutored math for grade school, high school, college, and beyond, through the present, for over 20 years. I also tutor computer science, as I have been a professional Software Engineer/Computer Programmer for over 20 years.

I tutor one student at a time for 60 minutes at the rate of:

I have been tutoring my classmates in math since the 2nd grade! I have tutored math for grade school, high school, college, and beyond, through the present, for over 20 years. I also tutor computer science, as I have been a professional Software Engineer/Computer Programmer for over 20 years.

I have also tutored some calculus, physics, and chemistry while in college, since I had to take these courses as part of my Electrical Engineering degree that I received from the University of Cincinnati.

I have also participated in the Whiz Kids Reading Program for 3 years through my church. I have also tutored downtown, for both reading and math, as needed, helping adults prepare for the GED.

I am currently pursuing my Masters in Education.

I enjoy the 1:1 interaction with students, when the "I got it" light bulb goes off and the grades start going up. Then their confidence goes up, as well, and that confidence then transfers over to other areas of their life, as well.

My methods include: teaching a topic or lesson and then quizzing the student thereafter; verbal and written practice of spelling words, math facts, formulas, word problem key words, and other rote memorization; practice SAT/ACT problems or test (particularly in the math and science arenas).

Sessions must be scheduled at least 1 day in advance, with some detail on what the student needs help with, wants tutoring on, etc, so that I can bring specific materials needed for the session.

Cancellations need to be made with 24 hours - please see my cancellation policy for further details. I do charge for a full session for any cancellations made 0-24 hours prior to the session.

I tutor in person at one of the Public Libraries in the Cincinnati area, north of the river. Preferred libraries include: Blue Ash, Fairfield, Winton Woods, Wyoming, or the Main Library in downtown Cincinnati. I am also open to tutoring in other local libraries in the Cincinnati area.

Additionally, I tutor at the University of Cincinnati (main campus or Raymond Walters), as well as online via the Wyzant site.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Cincinnati, and completed the first year of Masters Degree coursework in Computer Science. I am currently a professional Software Engineer/Computer Programmer and have been for many years, so I have used or and currently fluent in software development (procedural, object-oriented, and scripting) as well as C, Visual C++, C++, Java, JavaScript, HTML, JSP,and other languages. Specific to C++, I have 6 years experience at AT&T Bell Labs coding Visual C++ code using Visual Studio, as well as a more recent academic quarter coding games using C++ in my Gaming and Simulation Programming degree 6 quarters of completed coursework.

Computer Engineering

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Cincinnati. The first 4/5 years of the degree were the same for both the Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering majors, and, I took many of the Computer Engineering courses in my senior year, as well. I remember circuits, Assembler for the Intel CPU, and would enjoy helping a student be successful in this coursework.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Cincinnati (UC). The first 4/5 years of the degree were the same for both the Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering majors, and I took many of the Computer Engineering courses in my senior year, as well. I have completed coursework for 3 quarters towards an MS in Computer Science at UC, 3 quarters towards a Webmaster Certificate, and 6 quarters towards a second BS in Gaming and Simulation programming degree. I am currently a Software Engineer/Computer Programmer/Web Developer and have been for over 20+ years.
JavaScript,

JavaScript

I am currently a Software Engineer and have been for over 25 years. I have 3-5 years business experience in the HTML/CSS/JavaScript and Java technologies, and currently utilize these technologies on my day-to-day job. When tutoring students in any programming language, I ask them to bring their laptop to the session (&/or I bring my own), and I teach them how to Google concepts, API docs for the language (like Javadocs for Java), programming and examples of code in the language. I teach them programming design and logic by breaking down the exercise, talking it through and drawing out flowcharts, pseudocode, arrays and data structures with their indices, etc. I also discuss class, module, and variable naming conventions (camelCase, consistency, descriptive as possible), as I coach them through learning the language syntax and debugging methods (echoing print statements, commenting out lines until it works and then uncommenting a few lines at a time until it breaks and repeating this process, etc.) and testing all logic paths in the code.
Python,

Python

I am currently a Software Engineer and have been for over 25 years. I have 2 years business experience in the Python programming language; I have recently tutored a Jython/JES student for more than 10 hours over several sessions of hands on programming on the student's laptop, learning as they typed the code for their classwork and final. When tutoring students in any programming language, I ask them to bring their laptop to the session (&/or I bring my own), and I teach them how to Google concepts, API docs for the language (like Javadocs for Java), programming tutorials and examples of code in the language.

Susan was very patient and was able to answer foundational questions to help me understand basic rules and principle that I need to know to build upon as I aim to do the math problems I'm challenged with.

Naomi, 21 lessons with Susan

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Goes through things step by step as to make sure it is understood and not rushed, gives assignments(if wanted) as to have time to work on it by yourself and with assistance, very patient, definitely recommend.

Ericka, 16 lessons with Susan

Exam preparation

Susan helped my daughter work through many problems in Physics in preparation for her exam. She was able to break down the problems so she understood them step by step.

Great Tutor

Susan is tutoring my son in physics and trigonometry as it applies to physics, and is helping him to understand the subject so much more clearly. He says she is very thorough. She even gave him extra website links to help him study outside of their time together. We appreciate her working with our schedule and is very reliable. My son gives her five stars!

Very patient and sensible

Susan has helped my son in Algebra 1 to use strategies that will improve his overall performance. He is gaining confidence and reducing the number of mistakes made

Joycelyn, 12 lessons with Susan

Great Tutor!

I have been working with Susan for two weeks now and she has undoubtedly helped me become more confident with JavaScript and coding. She is wonderful at walking you through, step-by-step, and explaining everything. Susan is very patient and truly wants to help you understand each concept. She is very willing to meet whenever you need her and schedule lessons far in advance. Not only have my grades improved, but my confidence has as well.

Lily, 9 lessons with Susan

Susan is patient and professional!

Susan was on time and we finished on time. Right now Susan is doing test to see where my daughter is at in her math skills and we are working on identifying strengths and weaknesses. We look forward to our next session.

Nitaya, 10 lessons with Susan

Helpful and kind.

Susan helped my daughter with her Java class. She helped her to see a different way to look at the problem. I would whole-heartily recommend Susan!
