About Susan

I have taught ESL for many years in private settings as well as college classrooms both in the U.S and overseas, and also coordinated an organization that did testing and designed individual curriculum. I especially enjoy working with children and beginner adults on increasing their practical skills for everyday functioning and increasing their communication with correct pronunciation. My work with Autistic children has helped them develop their verbal skills and been an enjoyable and calming experience for them. I consider myself to be culturally sensitive and respectful of the student and their family. An important part of my tutoring is encouraging the student to recognize their personal interests and learn new vocabulary and ideas that they discover in their exploration. My second language is Japanese. Humor and fun is part of my personality and teaching style.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a BS and MS degree in Applied Linguistics and more than 30 years teaching experience. I have created curriculums and taught in lecture settings, small groups, and one-on-one tutoring. I enjoy injecting fun and appropriate humor into lessons. Working with one student provides a chance to focus on the individual's interests and needs.
