About Suzanne

Hello!

Teaching is my gift and my calling. I've known I wanted to be a teacher since I was in 2nd grade. After graduating with my Bachelor's Degree in K-8 Education, I was hired right away by the Bellingham School District to teach 3rd and 4th grade. After two years of this, I returned to school to get my Master's of Education with an emphasis in Reading and Literacy, which I completed in 2007. Throughout my seven years of classroom teaching, I did private tutoring as well. After having my second child, I stepped away from the classroom to have more time and energy to be a mommy.

During my temporary time away from the classroom, I continue to enjoy private tutoring. I love the interactions with my students and especially the joy of seeing the light bulb go on in a child. I have also worked with students suffering from academic and performance anxiety and enjoy seeing their confidence and courage grow. I believe in the value of private tutoring since I have seen so many of my students progress through this method. The focused time one on one with an experienced and educated teacher is invaluable. I know that I will be able to provide a focused, assessment driven, and individualized program for your child with the Core Curriculum in mind.

I recently had to renew my teaching certificate since it was going to expire. In the last year, I have received training in Executive Functioning Disorder and The Common Core Standards.

Please don't hesitate to contact me. I would be honored to work with your student!

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 a Master's Degree in K-8 education with an emphasis in reading and literacy. I taught intermediate elementary grades for seven years before resigning to be an at-home mom. Over the past four years that I've been at home with my two kids, I have continued to do private tutoring for students in grades 1st-7th. Through assessment and collaboration with teachers and parents, I am able to provide an individualized tutoring experience for my students.

Handwriting

My background is in reading and literacy. Helping students with handwriting was a part of my daily responsibilities as a classroom teacher. One of the goals with a current student that I tutor privately is to improve handwriting and legibility of writing.

Phonics

I have a Master's Degree in K-8 reading and literacy. Through my studies and experience, I have worked with several students who are emerging readers. Our practice and lessons have included the use of phonics to increase reading skills and independence.

Study Skills

For the past 18 months, I have worked one on one with a few students who have Executive Functioning Disorder. Part of my work with these students has been building study skills. We learn strategies, organizational skills, and disciplines for studying in all subject areas. I have a Master's Degree in K-8 reading and literacy.
