Information about Susan
I am a caring and friendly professional English tutor who has recently moved from Oxford to Taunton. I specialise in tailoring tuition to meet each individual`s goals and needs, so please contact me to discuss and assess these. I can either supplement school/college work or design an independent programme of work. I quickly learn how my students think and am patient, flexible and innovative, adapting my approach to suit each student. My pupils look forward to their tutorials which often become the highlight of each week because they receive the help they need to succeed in all areas of English, whatever their level of English might be and whatever their goals. Areas of work include: all aspects of reading, writing speaking and listening, all aspects of the National Curriculum and all Key Stages both Primary and Secondary, 11+, Common Entrance and Scholarship Exam preparation, English Literature, Drama and English Language, IGCSE, GCSE and A level, Vocational Courses, Higher and Adult Education and ESL including IELTs preparation.
Availability: I live in central Taunton not far from the Musgrove Hospital and prefer to tutor at my home as I have a fully-equipped study, but I can travel by arrangement. I am very flexible and can arrange sessions to suit you during weekdays, evenings or weekends and during term time or holidays.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: During a teaching career spanning thirty years I have taught English and Drama in grammar and comprehensive schools, in the state and independent sectors, in further education college and university. For the last ten years I have worked as a private tutor in Oxford. My students have ranged in age from six years to mature adults and have been both native and non-native English speakers and those with special needs as well as advanced students.Contact this Tutor
Feedback For Susan (4)
Susan helped my daughter in the run up to her A Level English
Literature exam. She was extremely helpful in developing her awareness for different interpretations of the literature she was studying and made her feel more confident in class. In my daughters words amazing, amazing, amazing! Susan helped improve her grades from C/B to A *. Thank you so much.
A lovely person with a passion for Literature...very good communicator and teacher.
Mrs Susan has just taught my son for the past year - iGCSE English. He doesn`t read books and had previously only ever achieved a D for English. After a year of seeing Mrs Susan twice a week, he obtained a B for iGCSE English which we are delighted with. Without this B he would not have been given a place at a prestigious 6th form college where he is now studying his true strengths which are Maths and Physics. A very big thank you to Mrs Susan. I should add that my son enjoyed his lessons with her.
