****Preference for Online Tutoring Students*****

Parents: I am an older educator, with a BS in Secondary Education (Chemistry, General Science, and Safety) and a Masters in Counseling and Guidance. I have taught middle school, high school, and college.

I value learning for anyone and recognize that sometimes particularly young people need help in learning how to study. While teaching high school, I created an SAT preparation class (with practice tests and study skill lessons). I have created ASVAB practice tests while managing military learning centers for military personnel.

I am a fun and engaging teacher. I like to work with all kinds of young people, and will work with your student to determine his/her learning style.

Students: Let's find a way to get through your learning obstacles! Learning should be fun...I am an enthusiastic teacher and would welcome an opportunity to work with you and add to your confidence in your studies. All I ask of you is your willingness to listen and try!

Study Skills

Being a former Chemistry and SAT-preparation high school teacher, I have spent considerable time helping students learn how to study. This might include improving their study environment, organizational skills, reading comprehension, and even vocabulary skills. With the use of the internet, the ability to get an answer from the homework helper websites has not helped the student understand the "why" of the answer. Improving study skills and concepts of learning can benefit the student.

Test Preparation

AFOQT,

AFOQT

AFOQT Qualifications I am submitting my qualifications as an AFOQT tutor (I am currently an approved ASVAB tutor with WyzAnt). I have been instructing military personnel for over 4 years in preparation for the ASVAB. Several of the subtests for the AFOQT are largely identical to the ASVAB subtests. I am a former chemistry teacher and College Psychology professor so I have multiple techniques at my disposal for teaching young adults in many subjects, but the most often required is that of math. My degree in chemistry involved routine use of math, which has afforded me the ability to not only teach math but help my students find a passion for math they never knew they had! In addition as a High School chemistry teacher, I developed as SAT preparation class to increase students test scores that was the first of its kind in the State of Delaware. I am a good test preparation teacher. Several of my current 22 ASVAB students are actually studying for the AFOQT.
ASVAB,

ASVAB

I managed Military learning centers for Ft. Stewart, where the major course of study was the ASVAB. I defined the coursework as well as practice tests for under-achieving military personnel.

Excellent Personal Teacher

Ms. Sue is a very patient and dedicated teacher, where you might've struggled in the past with understanding math skills, she brings a new outlook to help you understand the things that have troubled you.

Lukas, 8 lessons with Suzanne

Well explained and patient tutor

Ms. Sue refreshed me on Arithmetic Reasoning word problems and gave a detailed explanation on how to do questions I was not sure about. I look forward to study again soon!

Amauris, 2 lessons with Suzanne

ASVAB Tutor

Suzanne is Knowledgeable and thorough on all subject areas on the ASVAB exam. Excellent support to facilitate achieving a maximum score on the exam. Highly recommend her as a tutor.

BIG HELP ON THE ASVAB

I took the asvab twice before but still was a few points short for the career choice wanted in the military. I decided to look for a tutor and was hesitant for online tutoring. Ms. Sue reassured me that online torturing would work and it did. My AFQT score went up by 15 points and I was awarded a contract. I highly recommend her for the asvab or any other standardize test. She will push you to your full potential.

Dillon, 6 lessons with Suzanne

Great teacher!

My son has not stopped talking about Ms. Sue and how easy she explains Math problems! This is definitely a first for him! He enjoyed his first session!

LaQueda, 16 lessons with Suzanne

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Ms. Sue recently tutored my son for the ASVAB. She valued the learning for him and recognized simple things that he should relearn. Sometimes particularly young people that are accustomed to using calculators and computers for everything they forget the small things such as multiplication. My son's AFTQ score improved by 29 points. Now, my son is qualified to choose any career in the Air Force that his heart desires.

Talauna, 18 lessons with Suzanne

Excellet Teacher

Not only has Ms. Sue taught me how to solve math problems and help me score better on the ASVAB but she also has a way of bringing my confidence up. Ms. Sue is the best and I would highly recommend her.
