Suzanne is very patient, and I am a slow learner. So far, problems in resolving some confusion have popped up on my pc, revealing formatting that neither Suzanne nor I had ever encountered before. Suzanne tries very hard to research and resolve these unexpected problems, both when they occur, and also in preparation for the next lesson.

"Summer 2014 Tutoring in History, Reading, Writing, English, and German"
Currently I am pursuing my PhD in modern European history, with a focus on the WWII period. In addition to my years of history coursework as both an undergraduate and graduate student, I am a Teaching Assistant in my current history department. Courses I have assisted professors with, and taught lecture or discussion components in, include a survey of modern European history (French Revolution to present), the history of Nazi Germany, Europe 1914-45, and the social and intellectual history of Europe. I regularly hold office hours at Stony Brook to assist students enrolled in these courses. ... More
Michelle was very professional. She is excellent at communicating with the parent and providing feedback. She is very transparent about her goals and how she plans to accomplish them. My child was definitely comfortable with her and enjoyed his experience. She comes across as extremely capable and knowledgeable. I appreciate her willingness to travel to us and do what she can to prepare my child for kindergarten. Look forward to future sessions.

I have been privately tutoring students from grade 3 through college for the past 10 years. I specialize in math, science, english, reading, and test preparation, but I am open to many others.

It is important to me to encourage students in t... ... More
