Sue is friendly, knowledgable and has helped me develop my French conversation
Sue is a supportive and flexible tutor with lots of experience. She is demanding and gives plenty of assignments in between meetings, but also very understanding of my daughter`s other commitments.
excellent Tuition as this is very basic learning for myself and my wife and Sue is helping us with day to day situations of speaking in French. All situations of language are covered for our travels to France and eventuality of living there.
She is great. Easy to work with and very good at matching the different needs of each student.
sue really helped with the grammar and vocabulary for my son`s end of year exam. her suggestions for what vocabulary he should focus on helped him as much of it came up in the exam. my son got a significantly better mark than in his last exam.
Sue is very thoughtful and tailors her tutoring around the needs of the pupil.
Helped build confidence for Spanish oral exam. Flexible.
Sue instilled confidence into my daughter, and excelled at making not particularly exciting topics seem interesting. She made sure that they spoke Spanish wherever possible, which at first year GSCE level is an amazing achievement. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to bring out the best in your child`s attitude to learning Spanish to expand on existing knowledge and to improve confidence.
Very friendly, lots of resources used, lots of Spanish conversation, and the right amount of challenge for me
