Success Tutoring is very lucky to have Susan on board as a tutor. As a teacher, her students loved being in her classroom because she not only made learning fun, but she really helped them to understand what they were learning - not just memorize it.
After retiring from teaching, Susan wanted to continue her life-long passion to help and educate children so she decided to work with students on a one-to-one basis. As a tutor, Susan maintains the same philosophy and dedication she had as a teacher. While making tutoring fun, she really makes sure that her students learn. Susan works to make sure her students understand their material and can not only demonstrate increased skill in whatever subject they are studying but that they also exhibit increased confidence in their handling of the subject.
Below is a quote from Susan which outlines her philosophy:
“I am passionate about students really understanding what they are studying and why they are studying it; it is vital that they know how it applies to them and are able to show that they can use the data in life. Education can make all the difference in someone’s ability to handle and enjoy life. It is an important purpose for me - to be able to help give students the best possible chance to succeed.”
Congratulations Susan, on being Tutor of the Month for Success Tutoring!

Success Tutoring Math Basics Boot Camp A Success!
Here are just a few testimonials from students after just one week of the Winter Break Boot Camp:
"With this tutoring, I feel way more comfortable with this type of math that I was severely struggling in. So this week has improved my understanding in math." (6th grader)
"Out of this boot camp, I have learned how to subtract properly, to turn decimals into fractions and percents. I have also learned how to add, subtract and multiply mixed numbers and improper fractions. And also learned how to subtract and add problems with decimals. I had fun learning with my tutor, she is awesome!" (9th grader)
"My tutor has explained math well enough that I understand it; I sometimes have a hard time understanding my teachers at school." (9th grader)
This boot camp is available for students that are finding math challenging or that are not doing well in their regular and Common Core math classes or that have lower grades in these classes. It is designed to cover math basics needed to do well in math.
Students should be currently enrolled in PreAlgebra or Algebra classes or Burbank Unified Schools' Course 1 (6th grade), Course 2 (7th grade), or Course 3 (8th grade).
This is a special discounted boot camp consisting of small groups of 2 students and one tutor. All of our tutors are current or retired teachers. Limited space, limited enrollment. If space allows, this boot camp will continue into 2017. Call for details: (818) 557-7379
Individual tutoring is also available to address current topics in all elementary, middle school and high school regular and Common Core math classes including Algebra I, II, Geometry, PreCalculus, Calculus, Statistics, as well as AP math classes.
