Information about Susie
Hi my name is Susie - I am an experienced and fully qualified Teacher of English and a Senior GCSE Examiner. Skilled in making both pupils/learners and parents feel quickly at ease. I am very approachable and always enjoy a good rapport with my students - many of whom return year after year for help with the next stage of their educational journey. Passionate about the benefits of tuition, I believe that a good tutor can provide an opportunity to not only achieve targets, but to exceed them.
English Tuition begins with an initial meeting, or telephone call, to discuss tuition needs. This is free of charge, as I believe that building positive relationships is key to successful tuition.
Availability: Some daytime and afterschool slots - please let me know your preference and I will try to accommodate you.
Already taking bookings for September and the summer holidays. Please do get in touch.
Remote, online, English tuition available, i addition to traditional 1:1 tuition
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: One of my favourite moments in a tuition session is when a pupil starts to smile and share their ideas, as confidence and trust are built. A parent recently commented, My son has been attending extra tuition with Susie and she has worked nothing short of a miracle with him, he thoroughly enjoys his lessons and now feels more confidant and ready for his SATS.
My daughter has dyslexia and struggles to learn well in a classroom environment. She came to susie lacking confidence in her abilities. She just needed someone to take the time to explain things on a one to one so she understood. Susie is amazing, she has great knowledge and skills and is the perfect person to help my daughter learn and in turn boost her confidence. She has content to write now, she has opinions on texts, she will put her hand up in lessons. Im hopeful Susie will be a massive support to her during year 11 and her gcses.Jenna
Susie is amazing. My son has gained so much confidence in English since taking lessons from her.
He has achieved 2 As in last year`s GCSE exams for both Engligh Language and Literature, improved from B/C grades after taking 7 months tuition from Susie.
Now he`s predicted a A for A level English Language.
Definitely recommend Susie to anyone I know. Bing

I was looking for a tutor for my daughter whilst she was in Year 10 as she was having a constant change of teacher at school and was unsure of the work needed for the new English exams being introduced this year. Susie listened, understood her strengths and weaknesses and consistently week after week taught and encouraged her through the whole of the syllabus. With patience and experience Susie was able to advise and coach my daughter to help her improve her skills, her knowledge and her confidence. Today she collected her results - Level 9 in English Language and Level 8 in English Literature -
What more can I say just thank you so, so much. Julie

My daughter disliked English with a passion and was predicted D in both Eng Lit and Lang! Suzie explained everything and Chloe gained a better understanding of the subject. She has just achieved grade C in both exams and is very happy!Julie

Susie has greatly improved Chelsea, s results whilst studying for her exams in year 11. She has excelled in all subjects. Susie gave her the confidence and techniques that she was lacking in order for her to do so well. Susie is very flexible and was always willing to change times and days to suit our needs. Chris

Susie is very enthusiastic in her teaching and provides support outside of the tuition slot to review homework, assist with problems and respond to queries. Jill
My 10 year old son started with Susie a year ago as his literacy grades were below the national expectations. His last report said he had made outstanding progress, and as a result, he is now within the national expectations! He will continue with Susie for his last year of primary school, as his confidence has improved greatly, and we hope this will carry on to High School. Kristy

Feedback For Susie (9)
Excellent teacher, works well with my daughter who is fully engaged with her English. Highly recommend Ed.
Susie is an amazing teacher, passionate about English and tunes into your child really quickly. Susie spent time with me and my son to understand him and how he might learn, this didn`t feel rushed it was perfect. My son has never had the confidence to read out loud in class. Within 10 minutes of his first session with Susie he was reading out loud and confidently. Susie will cover so much so quickly but has a way of helping your child enjoy the subject keeping them engaged and quietly pushing them. My son is loving the sessions and this was his weakest subject prior to meeting Susie. We are very grateful for all of your help Thank you:)
My daughter has had a few sessions with Susie, and her confidence has already grown. She enjoys going and we both think Susie is a fantastic tutor and I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Although my son Tom is only 5 weeks into his tuition with Susie, the change in his attitude towards English is huge.
Susie has helped Tom find confidence in his English skills and capability.
Susie has wonderful 1:1 communication skills, a really positive and encourage style, whilst ensuring that Tom works hard.
Watching Tom and Susie working together gives me more confidence that the structure in the sessions will result in the best GCSE grade for Tom.
Susie has been tutoring my son for GCSE English for two months. During this time Susie has helped him immensely with his understanding of the required texts, and is also helping him to improve his essay writing skills. He enjoys working with Susie and since starting the sessions, his work rate and focus in class has greatly improved and continues to go from strength to strength. Susie is always well prepared for the lesson and is friendly, patient and reliable. Couldn`t be more pleased with my sons progress so far.
Would definitely recommend Susie. My son is making fantastic progress. Excellent tutor!
Susie has started to work with my son with a view to building his confidence and techniques to get him through his GCSE English exams. Susie has already had a huge impact on my sons confidence which is already evident in his quality of work at school. She is friendly, open, flexible and adaptable which is a terrific bonus if your child is a bit shy or nervous, my son is really enjoying working with Susie, I would highly recommend her.
We first contacted Susie towards the end of year 9 as my daughters English grades fluctuated so much due to a succession of supply teachers and very little consistency. Susie immediately spotted my daughters abilities and built on her strengths and encouraged her to work on her weaknesses. My daughter learned to enjoy poetry and literature and improved her language skills, achieving an 8 in English Language and a 6 in Literature GCSEs. My daughter found Susie very easy to get along with and thoroughly enjoyed her lessons.
My son is 11 years old and is thoroughly enjoying his English lessons with Susie even though he hasn`t previously enjoyed this subject in school! Although it is very early days, I feel he is already making good progress. Each lesson, he comments that he has learnt something valuable and is starting to feel more confident in this subject. Susie is a very friendly, enthusiastic and patient tutor who I would thoroughly recommend.
