## Very kind, easy to understand and quick

Crystal, 9 lessons with SusanShe was so helpful, really put my daughter's mind at ease and was able to get through a great amount of material in the time we had together. We will definitely book with her again.

I have over 30 years of classroom experience helping students make sense of math. I can quickly assess what and why a particular topic or problem is confusing for each individual. Sometimes it only takes a session or two to make math come into focus for a person. Other students may need ongoing support or someone available when they get a particularly difficult assignment. It gives me great satisfaction when students achieve self-confidence through success in math.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

Hello! I have been teaching Algebra 1 for over 30 years. I love helping students become confident in their own ability to do math. In Algebra 1, many students find that they are overwhelmed with the details of problems, showing work, new ideas, and/or how to read word problems. I help students see patterns in the Algebra 1 concepts they are learning. Together, we build a strong foundation for both present and future success in their math classes. Please check out my Examples of Expertise to better decide if I am a good fit for you!

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

Hello! I have been teaching Algebra 2 in the classroom for 20+ years. I am excellent at summarizing the connections between forms of linear equations, quadratic equations, polynomial equations, rational equations, logarithms, sequences, and more so these topics make more sense in a "big picture" way. I can quickly pinpoint where the student is struggling and help them achieve confidence in any area. Often there are very new ideas introduced in Algebra 2 (e.g. completing the square) and I have a variety of visual tools to help students learn to succeed independently.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

Hello! I have been teaching Geometry for over 30 years. I can help students integrate the new vocabulary and learn to break down problems into manageable parts. I demonstrate general patterns in proofs, and assist the student in making connections between Pythagorean Theorem, Special Right Triangles, and Right triangle trigonometry. I have been teaching or tutoring in diverse urban populations and am skilled at quickly pinpointing where a student is struggling. Please check out my Examples of Expertise to better decide if I am a good fit for you!

Prealgebra,
#### Prealgebra

I have been teaching in the classroom for many years. Prealgebra is a topic that can be very difficult for those just starting out and getting ready for Algebra 1. I can help students gain confidence in reading math problems correctly, working through problems from start to finish, and identify and master the skills that are essential for future success in math courses.

Precalculus
#### Precalculus

Precalculus can be daunting. Proficiency is needed with many Algebra concepts (shifting reflecting, etc, piecewise functions, absolute value functions, rational functions, etc). I am able to quickly assess understanding in order to efficiently help the student with their current classroom material. I have a Masters in Education and over 30 years teaching and tutoring of all concepts including Logarithms, unit circle, solving trig equations, trigonometric identities, parametric equations, vectors, limits, advanced composition, and more.

Trigonometry
#### Trigonometry

I am able to help students see the connections and transition from right triangle trigonometry to circle trigonometry to graphing trigonometric functions and their transformations. Trigonometric Identities can be especially daunting. I teach techniques and best practices that will help the student succeed and gain confidence in Trigonometry.

Susan has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **22 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Patient and helpful

Susan did an amazing job making Algebra 2 easy to understand for my 13 year old. We will definitely use her again to help. I would recommend her to all my friends who need an excellent tutor

Sonia, 6 lessons with Susan

## Very knowledgable and helpful. My daughter was delighted.

My daughter said that Susan was great and really helped her a lot, it's been too long for me to know all this stuff. Susan was very knowledgeable and did a great job imparting the knowledge to my daughter. Highly recommended.

Tim, 2 lessons with Susan

## THE BEST!

Susan helped my 10th grade son with Algebra II. She explains things simply and gives you analogies that make math easy to understand. Definitely will use her again!

Yvonne, 1 lesson with Susan

## Extremely patient and very great at finding the time to meet.

Susan really helped me with my Pre-Calculus course this year. Her patience, skill with the Wyzant platform, willingness to find the time to meet, and her commitment to finish explaining a concept even if it goes over the allotted time has made her very helpful.

Leo, 12 lessons with Susan

## Amazing tutor!

Susan helped me understand the concept I wasn't understanding in class and thanks to her I got an A on my quiz!

Abigail, 2 lessons with Susan

## Amazing Math Tutor!

Susan is tutoring my teen son in Geometry. She is knowledgeable and able to explain concepts in a different way from his current teacher so that my son understands better. He says her teaching style is "Amazing!" which is high praise as he is shy/reserved. He loves that she assesses how much of the concept he gets and builds from there rather than starting from the beginning. He is feeling much more confident about the class and the only concept he felt sort of shaky on he now feels like he completely understands. I am so pleased to see his confidence rebuilding.
