About Susan

I have always enjoyed the language arts and helping students of all ages improve their language skills. I have tutored native English speakers and non-native English speakers with reading, writing, listening, and speaking and it's always a pleasure to see students recognize their own improvements.

It's particularly rewarding to see children recognize improved facility with reading and writing. I have tutored privately and through the volunteer tutoring program at Portland State University.
Before I begin with a student, I determine what individual needs they have and what their goals are. If the student has a school based goal we will follow the school's guideline.

My time is quite flexible but I would appreciate a 24-hour cancellation time. I can tutor in the student's home or in my apartment, in downtown Portland.

I hold an Applied Linguistics degree Portland State University. I graduated summa cum laude and have a certificate in Teaching of English as a Second Language. Because I love languages, I have learned several languages which is helpful in gaining a deep understanding of the foundations of language and universal grammar which in turn assist with teaching English.

With no charge involved, I would be glad to meet with a students and a student's parents, if that is applicable, to discuss student needs and goals. Please contact me with any questions.
