About Susan

I have taught public school for 30+ years and have retired from full time teaching in 2013. I love helping students of all ages master new skills. I am a certified K-12 Library Media Specialist in the state of Wisconsin. I have a B.S. teaching degree in life sciences (Biology, Botany, and Zoology) and a M.S. degree in Information Literacy. I am a certified WI state teacher mentor and HIE for PDP reviewer for teachers.

I love nature and visiting all of the parks and natural areas of our scenic state. I am an avid computer coach for local organizations and family. I love reading and the challenge to learning new things.

I have many years of attending and leading Bible studies. I have rewritten and published several guides for computer programs and beginning reading courses for students throughout my teaching career. Writing is an integral way to share what you know and how you feel. I believe it is a critical life skill.

I appreciate when my students say learning is hard, because sometimes it is. However, that doesn't mean learning can't be done. Working strategically, everyone can master new skills. Each learner has to be willing to keep trying and each teacher needs to adapt lessons so that they can be mastered. My goals are to help the student master the subject they are to learn.

I love teaching and coaching others to aspire to their full abilities. I understand that sometimes learning seems difficult, but I also believe that it is just a challenge which can be overcome with proper educational coaching.

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.

Bible Studies

I have been in personal Bible Study since 1973. Am. I am currently co-teaching groups within my church family and continue to individually study the Bible.
I have taken local church leadership trainings over the years. I am not officially licensed by any one denomination. I have taken Navigator trainings.

Biology

I have a BS in Education from UW-Whitewater and a MS in Educational Technologies from UW-Whitewater. I taught public school from 1978 to 2013, and am currently retired and interested in tutoring.

Botany

I completed a BS in Ed with almost a full minor (18 credits) in Botany. I recently completed a 30 hour (3 credit?) UW Extension course in Horticulture called Master Gardening.

Common Core

I worked on sub committees to develop common core standards for K-5 informational science, computer competencies, science, social studies, and reading at the district and regional levels.
I received IHE standing for reviewing WI teacher license renewals as a Higher Education reviewer, 08/02/2005.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught grades PreK - 5th grades for 20+ years and taught grade 5-8 in enrichment programs during summer months for two years.

Macintosh

I have been a Macintosh user for over 20 years. I have taught labs of students using Macintosh products, both desktop and mobile devices.

Proofreading

As a Library Media Specialist for more than thirty years, I have instructed many levels of information research, note taking, reference notation, and bibliography writing.

Reading

As a LMS, I have coached students in reading as well as many subjects over the 35+ years I taught public school in WI. I have worked extensively within my school to develop strong reading lessons and programs for all children. I am convinced that anyone can learn to enjoy reading with the proper coaching.

Study Skills

I managed the media center within a school library for over 30 years and my primary focus was on developing independent learners and through the process taught study skills to thousands of K-5 children.
