Hi everyone! My name is Suzi. I just want to personally welcome you to my website, and tell you a little bit about myself! I have been an educator for 34 years now. Time has really flown by!
I decided at an early age that I wanted to be a teacher when my 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Brown, asked our class to write about what we wanted to be when we grew up. I wrote a full page, explaining that I wanted to be a first grade teacher when I grew up, so that I could teach children how to read! I still have the paper from so many years ago, with my photograph attached! You see…I loved to read! I read everything I that I could get my little 6 year old hands on!
Fast forward to sixteen years later…I was graduating from Texas Christian University with a BS in Elementary Education and a specialization in reading! I had actually fulfilled my dream! I think Mrs. Brown would have been proud of me, had she lived to see that day.
I taught reading in the same school district for 20 years. Then, fourteen years ago, I decided to leave the classroom and establish my own private tutoring business. I have worked with well over 1,000 children during the last 34 years, and it still astounds me how many of them cannot read on their grade level. I know that reading is at the core of pretty much everything we do in life. In order for a person to be successful in just about any job, they have to be able to read fluently. It’s as simple as that. That’s why I created this website. I have met so many frustrated parents who have witnessed their child fall into the “sink hole” of reading difficulties. I want to assure you that it doesn’t have to be this way, and please be assured that you are not alone! Just know that help is available!
I am here to help you in any way that I possibly can. If you ever need any feedback or would like to leave a comment, simply leave me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will personally get back to you! Please be sure to check back from time to time, as I will continually be updating this site.
I appreciate you stopping by! Happy reading to you and your child!
