About Susan

Through emphasis of each student's special skills and interests, I have been able to build confidence while sharing the necessary study skills, memorization techniques, and effective research methods. I have worked with students of all ages from Preschool to college age. Peaking children's interest with fun and memorable lessons is my forte.

I am certified to teach environmental and earth science. I have worked at the Academy of Natural Sciences, Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, and the Philadelphia Zoo. Although I have had college classes in Astronomy, my fascination began as a very young child.

I am also a graduate from Arcadia University in Elementary Education. I have worked as an ESL teacher on recognizing nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. I have also used the platform of great American literature to highlight the proper use of grammar and punctuation. Also used techniques from poetry, song, and prose to explore themes, character development, plot, and writing.

I can talk about a wide variety of subject matter and expand the basics with unique topics that children find interesting. I often include many multi-sensory and hands-on materials to accommodate children with different learning styles.

I know and love maps. I like to tie it in with geology, social studies, and world history. My classes also learned about climate changes, weather forecasting, and environmental issues.

I am looking forward to talking with you about what your learning interests are and how I could best accommodate you.
