About Susan

I have a Master's in Education from Texas A & M University. I am a retired teacher who taught overseas, in Texas and in Arkansas. I am also a trained Reading Therapist. I enjoy working with people with education goals. And, I can add, I've always learned as much from my students as they have learned from me.

I am also a past AmeriCorp member and tutored adults who were working on their GED. I currently help adults improve their reading and writing skills at a local adult facility.

Thinking outside the box makes the concept come to life. I'm steady, there for you, and your goals are my reality.

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.

Dyslexia

The Texarkana Arkansas School District #7, where I employed as a Special Education Teacher in Texarkana, AR, sent me to the ALTA Dyslexia Training in Little Rock, AR. It was the districts plan to have a trained Reading Therapists in the district to teach dyslexic students. I attended all training sessions and qualified as an Academic Language Therapist. After training was complete I worked for the district in this capacity, also had private clients, and for the past four years I've worked with adults who have trouble reading and comprehending.

Great tutor who builds confidence

This was my daughter's 4th or 5th session with Susan and I must say I am thus far impressed with her kindness, patience, and knowledge of teaching and learning. She starts by building up students and slowly makes it more challenging as the students confidence in themselves builds up. I would recommend her for students who are struggling with reading and confidence.
