About Susie

Enthusiastic, dedicated language tutor

I`m Susie, I`m 31 and I`m a self-confessed linguaphile! Are you suffering from monolingualism? Well, I have good news it`s entirely curable! :D More good news: YOU CAN learn a language. There is nobody too shy, nervous, young or old to enjoy my lessons. Together we`ll build your confidence and banish those all too common horrendous school experiences of language learning! It can be fun, I promise.
I am here to help you to improve your language proficiency whilst having a great time falling in love with another language and culture. As a student of the Open University, I fully understand the challenges of studying solo and of juggling work and study, making me the perfect person to navigate you through your exciting voyage of discovery.

Susie - Language Tutor

Written by Alex J
Susie was my Manager at a previous job and was fantastic; Hard working and understanding, with a very calm nature. Susie is a brilliant listener and has great understanding on how gain the most out of learning based on your abilities and strengths. I have only just started having basic French lesson with Susie but as a sufferer of dyslexia she has really attended to my needs providing me with easy step my step lesson plans, resources and visual aids. I would highly recommend Susie as a tutor to anyone looking to brush up or expand on their language skills.

French Lessons

I can't recommend Susie S highly enough.
Susie is an excellent, enthusiastic and very intuitive teacher who has seamlessly tailored our lessons to my individual way of learning and effortlessly focuses the lessons to what I'm aiming to achieve.
Susie has a very wide range of traditional and electronic teaching materials and methods to call on to mix up the lessons and keep them fresh, fun and me on my toes !
Before our Holiday in France, Susie created some specific lessons around everything from picking up the hire car, asking for directions, to booking restaurants and so many more incredibly useful phrases, some of which came in very handy !
A very happy mature student who never believed he could learn so much so quickly.

Tutor I would recommend to anyone.

Written by Hana B
I recommended Susie as a tutor to my cousin who was preparing for her First Certificate in English. She not only appreciated the face to face tutorials, but also the Skype lessons which were tailored to her needs. The opportunity to converse with a native English speaker proved invaluable. My cousin was extremely satisfied with the quality of the lessons and she had confidence in the information and material she was provided with. Besides Susie was kind, flexible and willing teacher to her. I would recommend Susie to anyone who wants to learn English, French or Spanish.
Preparation for FCE.
