Hi, I`m Susie, I`m 32 and languages are my absolute passion in life. I have great news to share with you: whoever you are, YOU CAN learn a language. My students range from age 8 to 70, from introvert to extrovert, beginner to advanced. It doesn`t even matter where you are in the world - I have students as far away as Australia, thanks to my Skype tuition.
I`m a full-time tutor, with over three years and 6,000+ hours of 1-2-1 teaching experience. Together we`ll build your skills and your confidence the horrendous memories of school language learning will be a thing of the past! It can be fun, I promise.
I am an experienced online tutor - I work with an online independent school to deliver GCSE tuition and group classes, as well as a selection of private, online clients from around the UK, Europe and beyond. Skype enables conversation, messaging and file sharing and for many people are just as effective as a face-to-face session.
As a student of the Open University, I fully understand the challenges of studying solo and of juggling work and study. I will be your guide, but I won`t do the work for you - being able to set aside time to study will be just as important as your lessons.

Each of my lessons is designed with the individual in mind, tailored to their learning preferences. Whilst I will do my utmost to give the student all the tools necessary to succeed and to cover as much as possible from the syllabus, I do not make promises on the grades that will be achieved or GCSEs or any other exam, as this ultimately relies on the students self-study, revision and performance on the day. I do however pride myself on keeping students/ parents/ guardians informed on their progress, using the past papers as indicators of current level. This enables parents/ guardians to make informed choices about the amount of study necessary and provides the best support for the learner. I am always available should parents/ guardians have any questions or concerns.
