"Spanish, English, Reading, and Writing tutor"
My experience with ESL has been as a tutor to students age kindergarten through sixth grade. For these sessions, I have worked to help students build vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation of English through a variety of resources including books, games, speaking, and writing activities. Most of my experience is with Spanish speaking students because I speak Spanish as well. ... More
"Chemistry is fun!"
For the past five years I have taught, learned, and completed graduate research in organic chemistry at the University of Minnesota. During that time I have taken undergraduate and graduate courses in organic chemistry such as advanced organic chemistry, synthesis, characterization of organic molecules, organometallics, and biochemistry (strictly biochem as it relates to organic chemistry not biology). Subject material from these courses includes the following: nomenclature and stereochemistry, IR/NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, advanced treatment of functional group preparations/functi ...

Susan walked through each problem and coached my daughter through the session checking to make sure she understood each step and could eventually complete it on her own. They completed my daughter's entire worksheet in the time they were together. I was very impressed with Susan's easy going, confident approach to algebra and would highly recommend her to other parents looking for a solid, patient tutor. Susan was also very timely in returning emails and even arrived for the lesson a little early! Susan is very thorough and professional.

"Graduate Level Math and Science Tutor"
I have been passionate about tutoring and teaching since I was a little girl. When I went off to college, I knew I wanted to study biology, since it was challenging, but interesting at the same time. As an undergraduate, I took 4 years of biology related courses (you name it, I've probably extensively studied it), 2+ years of chemistry courses, and over a year with math courses. Math and chemistry have always come easy to me even though they were not my specific major, and I feel very confide... ... More
