New College of Florida (Physics)
Duke University (Master's)
Duke University (PhD)
I have a Ph.D. in particle physics from Duke University, but what I have always loved to do most is teach. I taught introductory and intermediate physics classes at New College, Duke University and RPI. Some years ago I started to tutor one-on-one and have found that, more than classroom instruction, it allows me to tailor my teaching to students' individual needs. Their success becomes my success. Every student brings a unique perspective and a unique set of expectations to his or her lesson, causing me to adapt my teaching style and approach to forge a connection that works for both of us. I have learned a great deal from my students in this process!
My tutoring focuses on a solid understanding of the material and a consistent and methodical approach to problem-solving, with special attention paid to a good foundation in mathematical methods.
I am a native German-speaker, and have been working for several years as a German-to-English translator. I can help German language students with writing, grammar, pronunciation and conversation. In addition, I have a lot of English proofreading and editing experience. I believe that good communication both on and off the page is essential, no matter what field you work in.

Susanne is teaching Algebra I to our 8th grade daughter, who is being homeschooled for the first time. Our daughter really likes her and feels very comfortable with Susanne and her teaching style. She has been very open and flexible and has a very strong mastery of the subject matter. We feel like we have made a great choice! Susanne is very highly recommended!
She is helping my son brush up for German class. She did a great job. He reviewed assignments and tests from the previous school year and Susanne helped him see what he did wrong and how to correct it.
My son took physics SAT subject test lesson from Susanne. She did fantastic job to help him to gain complete confidence and command on all topics very quickly. My son just took the test and did very well. He is expecting full 800 score on the test. Susanne is really expert on advanced physics and know how to teach. We are very thankful to her for understanding my son's level and adjust teaching style accordingly. THANK YOU.
Susanne was wonderful. She worked with my daughter not only in academics but with building her confidence for the SAT. We were very lucky to find her. I would and will choose Susanne again for future help.
My 11th grade daughter started with Susanne intending to do SAT prep. Along the way, she has needed help in Physics, Pre-Calculus, and also SAT Math. Susanne has been great with every subject. I loved being able to pick a tutor that is proficient in higher level math. Susanne is prompt, courteous, and professional. I am happy that my daughter can count on her if there is something challenging her, or she needs to review before a test. Her grades have improved, and so has her confidence! We are both very pleased with Susanne and would highly recommend her!
I'm a bit advanced in my German, and I am meeting with Susanne to improve it. She's very well-educated and knows the language. I enjoy our classes, and I will continue with them.
The only reason I didn't give her a perfect is that sometimes she forgets and explains things in English. I'd rather keep the lesson 100% in German.
When I searched for tutors for SAT help, Susanne was the first result. She lived close, spoke German, and was very to the point; After reading her credentials I definitely wanted her as my tutor. She taught me strategies, techniques, and knowledge that I certainly could not attain in an SAT book. Susanne made me want to push myself in my SAT studies because she was such an inspiration. She is a very knowledgeable tutor and does not charge an absurd amount compared to other tutors. I absolutely loved working with her and strongly recommend any student struggling with the SAT's to take advantage of the great opportunity I had working with Susanne!
Susanne is a great tutor. She takes the time to listen and try to help figure the problem. I would highly recommend her to other students, but we don't want to lose her. She is an asset. Susanne is very accommodating with her time and patience. We will definitely stay with her! She is great.
Very impressed with Susanne. She's been very patient and supportive with my son, yet did not hesitate to immediately discuss expectations with him regarding organizational techniques. I have appreciated her "no nonsense" professional demeanor and my son has responded it positively as well.
I couldn't be happier with Susanne, and what she has done for my son. The subject matter is truly difficult, but in a short time, he has a much better understanding of the material and is able to work through difficult problems. They have a nice working relationship, she really put him at ease and made him understand that she is here to help and to answer questions that he might feel "dumb" asking. She always lets us know she is available for homework help when the lesson is over if needed. We plan on continuing his lessons during his school semester as an adjunct. We feel Susanne's expertise in the field of physics is just what my son needed to give him the foundation and confidence to master the subject. I am so glad I found WyzAnt and Susanne.
Susanne did an excellent job tutoring my son in German. She connected well with my son. He was able to successfully complete his German course at school. We will definitely be using her again!
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.
