I've taught and tutored students of ages from elementary school to college. I worked as a staff scientist at UCSF for several years after getting my PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology from UC Berkeley. I really enjoy working with students learning biology and biochemistry and have been told I am patient and have an excellent and clear way of explaining things. I was awarded a PhRMA fellowship for my postdoctoral research on using bioinformatics approaches to studying and comparing prot...
Susan taught me how to create natural notes in the middle of a piece that is tuned to sharps, which was what I needed to know. I will come back for another lesson soon.

discussed goals for this lesson. Purpose for learning to play the harp. Parts of the harp and how to use the levers. Tuning the harp and use of the tuning machine. explained how to use the tuning machine. Taught arms and hands position. Discussed plan for next week's lesson.

What I like about Susan as a teacher is that she takes the time to practice hand positions before plunging into actually playing a song. I appreciate this, because I will know the right way to play my harp. Worth the time! As a beginner, I?m tempted to plunge right into playing songs, but I know I need to learn the basics first.

She is very patient and knows all the details. She is also flexible to fit in my schedule to teach me.

Susan is a wonderful tutor! She is very nice, very patient, very punctual, and made it easy for me to learn. I recently was laid off and needed to get a crash course in PowerPoint to get up to speed since so many employers require PPT proficiency, so my initial session with Susan was for 2 hours. I appreciated her flexibility and pacing of the instruction according to how quickly (or slowly) I was picking it up. And since I have some ergonomic issues using computers, Susan came to my apartment to teach me on my own home computer which was a god-send. I will be calling on Susan's tutoring help again soon to brush up on some other applications. Thanks WyzAnt, for being such a great resource for learning!

I'm afraid to write this review at the expense of losing Susan to another, but it would be unfair for me to not share how helpful and sweet Susan has been for my daughter and me. My daughter was struggling in Biology and Geometry, and along came WyzAnt and Susan! My daughter went from a struggling C- in Biology to getting a 93% on her final exam all because of Susan's ability to teach her tricks to understanding the subject. In addition, when my daughter needed help in Geometry, Susan was helpful there as well. I can go on and on as to how helpful Susan has been for my daughter, but as a mother and a customer, she has been really considerate in this area, too. There was one time that a problem stumped Susan in Geometry right before my daughter's mid-term exam. Susan went home, called a friend, figured it out, and called at 7:30am the next day to see if she could come and show her at no charge. In addition, she only charged me for 1/2 the session. What a sweetie.
