About Susan

My permanent teaching certificate includes special education for grades k-12 and elementary education for grades k-6. I have taught at Wyoming Valley West School District since September 1974 until June 18, 2013. I recently retired with 37 years of experience as: an elementary special education for all subjects for grades K-5, a Title I math teacher for grades 1-4, and as an after-school teacher in reading/math for grades 1-3 in an elementary public school system which involved co-teaching in regular education classes and also pull-out sessions when needed for extra support in individual or small group settings. I have experience in differentiated learning which helps each child learn in a way that is best for them (example: by using different manipulatives and/or approaches to learning based on individual needs). Making learning a positive experience for a student hopefully inspires them to reach or exceed their potential.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have taught in a public school for 37 years; 30 years in a self-contained classroom and then an inclusive program for learning support children grades K-6. I spent the last seven years in a Title I Math position for elementary grades 1-4. I tutored regular education children after school for the school district in reading and math for grades 1-4 until the state funding was recently stopped for the program. I retired in June 2013. I have elementary certification for K-6.

Elementary Math

I have taught elementary math in addition to other elementary subjects for 37 years. I have taught remedial math for 7 years. I have tutored children in math for grades 1 to 5 for many years, also. I have given extra support in the preparation for PSSA math tests for many years for grades 3, 4, and 5.

Reading

I have taught elementary reading in grades k- 5 for 37 years with learning support students, regular students (in inclusion and tutoring programs), etc. This instruction was provided to students in public school systems with common core considerations. PSSA reading preparation was included for grades 3, 4, 5 as part of the instruction.
