Her passion for education brought her to the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California, where she earned her M.A. in Education. Throughout her college years, Susan worked as a private tutor. As a graduate student, she joined C2 Education as a tutor, and was offered a center director position for the new Palos Verdes tutoring center. “Being a program director allows me to help students and families on a level that tutoring didn’t provide,” Susan says. “In this role, I see our students grow academically and as individuals, a reward that cannot be expressed in words.”
