About Susan

I am a 37-year veteran of the public school classroom in both Texas and New Mexico. I have taught grades 1-8, and I have a specialty area of English. I have taught Creative Writing through San Juan College in Farmington, NM. I love working with children of any age and have success helping students pass the TAKS test. As a retired teacher, I have many resources and methods which I have used for years, but I am also knowledgeable in the use of computers and the internet. I will work closely with the student and the classroom teacher to help the student gain the skills that are deficient. I am available most evenings and weekends.

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.

I began my teaching career in First Grade during the era when phonics was the way to learn to read. I still use those same techniques to teach students today. I taught First Grade for a total of 8 years.
