Susanna has tutored our 3rd grade daughter (8-year old) for 1 year now and we could not be happier with the ongoing results.
Susanna is an extraordinary educator who takes the time to tailor an agenda to ensure our daughter fully masters the material before moving on to the next lesson; precisely what we were looking for in a math tutor.
In full transparency, the Beast Academy workbook is extremely challenging and would have impossible for us (both time and patience!) to teach our child ourselves since it requires a math professional to communicate the concepts properly and in the right academic setting.
Our 3rd grade daughter has already been introduced to introductory algebra, geometry, and even basic algorithms over the last 12 months under Susanna’s highly curated curriculum.
Another challenge for our daughter was ‘word problems’ containing multiple steps / concepts, which could be very frustrating for any student (at any age). Our daughter can now systemically attack the problem in a logical manner by showing her work step-by-step.
Susanna even taught Leela multiplication short-cuts and our 8-year old can now solve problems faster than her well-educated parents : ) For example, our daughter can multiply 73 x 8 or 85 x 85 in her head faster than my iPhone calculator!
Susanna is passionate, patient, and persistent and has developed a genuine connection with our quiet daughter; we couldn’t be more grateful.
Our daughter went from being a good student to top of her class in a matter of months and is now 2-3 years above grade level. Our very shy girl is exuding daily confidence in the classroom which is directly attributed to her Saturday morning classes with Susanna.
My wife & I were on the fence on adding yet another extracurricular activity (ie: reading tutor, chess, technology, tennis, swimming, etc) however we could not be happier in the investment and we have seen immediate returns.
We are so thrilled with the progress and passion that Susanna has instilled in our daughter, we would be happy to ‘pay it forward’ and speak to anyone in greater detail, just ask William / Alice for our contact details.
