About Susanne

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.
