Information about Susan

I have been a teacher for 35 yea,s specialising in Maths and Dyslexia support. I have been a Head of Maths and a Director of Studies but now run my own company Think Infinity.I have also trained with Tony Buzan, becoming one of only a few Licensed Instructors in the world able to instruct in memory techniques, mind mapping and creative thinking. I am also a Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner. I always personalise my tutoring to the specific needs of each my students and my creative approach to teaching and learning has ensured considerable success for my students e.g. significant improvement in Maths grades, effective use of study and revision skills, greater confidence and self esteem, coping strategies for dyslexic issues, reading, spelling and writing improvement for dyslexic learners, etc..

I tutor Maths from primary to undergraduate level and am familiar with all GCSE and A level specifications. I am also a senior examiner for both A Level and GCSE Maths. I have helped a number of adult students to pass GCSE Maths and prepare for the Teacher Numeracy Test. I have worked with students from primary to undergraduate level in need of dyslexia support and help with literacy. I also coach students of all ages in Tony Buzan`s techniques of mind mapping and memory skills.

Availability: Day-time, evenings, weekends. A level students can often fit in lesson during free periods from college when they do not need to go in early or can come home at lunchtime. I also teach during school holidays, including the summer holidays.

Susan was an excellent Tutor for my son - Alevel Maths. She was able to assist him in identifying his needs (including aspects of the syllabus), tutoring and coaching him to address those needs. Then assisting him through revision and encouraging him regarding exam technique. He achieved the A which he needed to gain his place at University. Thoroughly recommend Susan as a tutor. THANK YOU!

Sue was a tremendous help to my Granddaughter, preparing her for her GCSE Maths exam and giving her the confidence that she was lacking. Many thanks. Tony M

Susan has been tutoring my son for almost 3 years. She has been an amazing tutor with deep knowledge in mathematics. Furthermore, she has provided us with very useful tips and advice in other educational areas. Last but not least, she immediately spotted that my son has had Irlen syndrome and proposed the right specialist. My son now is wearing the proper glasses and is performing very well. I believe Susan combines effectively the deep experience of a seasoned teacher with the modern methodologies she has mastered (eg dyslexia). I very strongly recommend her not only as a tutor but as an "educational partner" for the family.

Susan has a very lively and motivating approach with my daughter. She is helping with revision approaches as my daughter is dyslexic. The mind mapping approach and coaching is very practical and logical and we both believe it will help her significantly.

I am a mature student taking GCSE Maths - Higher Tier. Revisiting Maths after many years was a challenge its self. I need additional support & found Susan. She went at a pace that was perfect for me. Susan has a lot of patience & was happy to revisit subjects I wasn`t too sure about! I would have no hesitation in recommending Susan for personal tuition!

Our 15 year old has been tutored in Maths by Sue and we wouldn`t hesitate to recommend her. She is highly organised and structured in her approach and has engaged our son in the subject. He has shown a marked improvement in his confidence. Sue has a very good handle on the requirements for the new GCSE exam and we feel confident that this will enable our son to be well prepared.
