I am an elementary school teacher & tutor with an art degree. I love tutoring school subject areas but I also have a HUGE passion for teaching art! In addition to the above, I have experience tutoring special needs students of every age.
My tutoring/teaching approach is laid back, creative, fun & definitely proves that you don't have to be bored to be able to learn.
I love my job & along with bachelor's degree in teaching, I have an associates degree in graphic design. I love to use art therapy with teaching because I realize that some students need that creative outlet in order to maximize their educational needs.
I have been teaching for 10 years & tutoring for 4. I have excellent references if you would like to review them. One of my biggest accomplishments that I am so proud of involved a first grade student who was diagnosed as being a selective mute. She was in my class when I was student teaching & her teacher told me that she had never uttered a word in her class. She was so incredibly shy that she never gave eye contact to anyone in the class. I started talking to her in February & by the end of April, she was talking in sentences & laughing with her classmates. Her teacher told me she had never seen anything like it. She was so much happier too - I loved being able to help her come out of her shell.
I am looking forward to meeting you & your family & creating an amazing learning path that fits your individual needs.
I LOVE my job each & every day because I know that I am truly making a difference in my student's lives. I love seeing them grow & learn in a more creative approach than just by the book. My passion is art & not only do I teach art related classes but I use art therapy in my educational tutoring. I get so excited when I see my student's eyes light up when I tell them we are going to learn in such a fun & creative way.
Susan is a highly motivated and dedicated tutor. I highly recommend her!
Susan is an unbelievable teacher. She is so extremely kind and patient and it’s clear how much she loves what she is doing. I would recommend her to anyone. She is amazing !!
She is super patient and knowledgable, and makes every experience fun!
I only do online tutoring so I would first set up a free zoom meeting for a half hour to meet the family & student. I love to get to know my students & this is a great opportunity to find out their interests & challenges so that I can create an individual learning plan.
Then if we all agree that it's a good fit, I would set up a schedule moving forward.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education, with over 10 years of teaching experience. I also have an Associate's degree in Graphic Design & have been a freelance artist for over 30 years & an online art tutor for over 5 years. I love teaching, children & art so each day is a fun & rewarding experience for me.
I normally charge $50 per hour for elementary students & $60 an hour for special needs & art lessons.
When I was growing up, I always said that I wanted to be an artist or a teacher when I got older - I have successfully fulfilled both dreams. I couldn't be happier.
I have worked with elementary students, special needs students from pre-k through 9th grade, & have taught art lessons to all ages.
I recently taught an online art class before Christmas making various crafts for Christmas presents. The crafts were simple but so much fun so I had a wide range of ages & we had the best time laughing & creating.
I would definitely interview the teacher first. You can usually tell right away if they are a good fit or not. If they are not feeling comfortable with that particular tutor, I would tell them to keep looking. The perfect fit will be well worth it.
Students should write out a list with what challenges they are having & what specific areas they are having trouble with. Teachers need to know what target areas must be focused on in order to make the most out of the experience.
