About Susan

I am currently a reading specialist at a local school, and I work with students in grades 9-12. I do a lot of passage reading, vocabulary, and writing with them. I also tutor a seven and an eight year old after school. We read from appropriate leveled books, work on site words, and phonics to unlock many other words.

I am certified in elementary/early childhood education, reading specialist, and special education, and I have worked in each of these fields. Teaching children and watching them grow in knowledge has been a passion of mine since I was a young girl, and now I get to live out the dream. I am very excited to meet your child and help him become even more successful than he is right now.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in Early Childhood and Elementary Ed. I have taught Kindergarten in the past. Currently, I am a reading specialist, certified K-12, and I tutor a 7-year-old boy.

Praxis

I passed the Praxis the first time around with nice scores. I have helped teachers study for the exam in the past. I am certified in Early Childhood/Elementary Ed., Special Ed and Reading Specialist.

Reading

I have been a reading specialist for the past 8 years at the high school level. During the past school year, I have tutored two 7-year-old kids in reading. Finally, I have helped a student study for the Praxis exam. I have four certifications and I am very versatile and enjoy working with all age groups.

SAT Writing

I am currently certified in 4 areas of concentration. For the past 8 years I have been a reading specialist at a local high school, and each year I guide my students in writing 2-3 five paragraph essays. I am confident that I will be able to help you build confidence in your writing ability through the use of graphic organizers.
