I ensure that every single class is adapted to the specific student that I am teaching because I recognise that every student's needs are unique. I try and engage students with various types of materials that are current so that the classes are fun and dynamic.
Skype is an effective way to receive classes during this difficult time for the world. I am a French, Spanish and English teacher with more than 10 years teaching experience.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in French English translation, a TESOL diploma and a Masters of Education (MEd) in Language in Literacy Education, which has helped me learn how the brain and human works when acquiring a new language. I have worked at the University of Toronto teaching English and at Humber College as a French teacher. I have been working for over 8 years as a teacher of both French and English and have experience with young children and adults alike.
I have just come back to Canada after living abroad from teaching English at The British Council in Madrid, Spain to children and adults.

Perfect! Susan is an excellent teacher. I have been studying French from her since the last three months. I started off with no foundation at all and within that short time she got me to B2 level reading.
She deeply understands the student's needs and weak areas and designs a program to address them. She also respects the time constraints and is willing to work with your schedule. This turned out to be perfect for me since she helped me make constant progress even though I had a relatively busy schedule. She is also very resourceful and provides useful handouts and homework along with great readings and popular media suggestions.
Perfect! Susan has a very comfortable format of teaching that provides the student with an enjoyable experience. As a busy CEO, I've enjoyed the flexibility of virtual classes and I've very much enjoyed the progress and sense of achievement that Susan has provided me. Overall, I have very much enjoyed my classes over the last 7 months and would definitely recommend Susan as a teacher to anyone that is looking to learn French.
Perfect! Susan is an incredibly engaging and patient tutor!
Since the beginning of our lessons, Susan has tailored her approach to my learning desires and needs! I vocalized early on that I had a desire to focus on and improve my conversational French. As such, Susan has ensured that during each lesson we spend a large amount of time speaking in French. We focus on grammar, sentence structure as well as the pronunciation of the language. If Susan sees an area that I am struggling with, we will pause and spend some time talking through that subject.
In addition to our weekly lessons, Susan provides great resources to improve my learning outside of our weekly sessions. Susan is always checking in to make sure the resources she is providing are interesting and relevant to my learning.
Overall, Susan is an incredibly agile tutor and I am very pleased with her ability to tailor her approach to my learning needs. My French has substantially improved since working one-to-one with Susan and I highly recommend her as a tutor for anyone interested in improving their French!
Perfect! Fantastic teacher. Not much more to say here.
Susan is a wonderful teacher. I've been learning french from her from the past three months and in every class, I find her teaching as awesome as she is. She would go the extra mile in helping you with some practical technicalities of the language . I would highly recommend her for those who want to learn French.
P.S. She gives you a lot of homework to practise at home as well, a great way to learn more.Though, its totally upto you if you want that or not ;)
I had classes with Susan for 2 years they were always professionally prepared with my needs in mind. It was obvious that she has lots of experience from the start she made me feel comfortable and guided my learning. She’s certainly the best teacher I’ve had.
Susan has been tutorIng me in French for the past two years. She is patient, kind and has a strong understanding of the French language. She speaks fluently and her lessons are engaging and helped me to build my confidence speaking in my second language. Susan also took the time to assess my French level and provided me with tools to improve my written skills. Working with Susan has been a lot of fun and I would strongly recommend her as a tutor. She was very flexible with my schedule and made me enjoy learning French again.
Gracias profesora! Susan was my teacher in Madrid for 2 years and helped me improve a lot. She always had wonderful lessons prepared and she helped me gain confidence with the language. Speaking a new language was intimidating and hard at the beginning for me, but I felt comfortable and relaxed with her as my teacher. She is a great teacher and also a great person.
Susan taught me English and French in Madrid, Spain for several years. Her classes were interesting and I advanced quickly with her because she challenged me and also made it fun. I highly recommend Susan if you want to enjoy your time while learning a language, she is an excellent teacher.
Susan was the best Spanish teacher I have ever had! I have done a lot of private classes and never had someone so attentive. She has a deep understanding of Spanish grammar, and has a special touch when teaching it that makes it so clear. She is patient and kind and her energy makes the class enjoyable. Such a fantastic experience learning with Susan ! Thank you for how much you have helped me.
Susan is an incredible French teacher - she is patient and encouraging. My confidence to correspond in French has improved significantly thanks to Susan. I would highly recommend!
Susan is a great professional. She was teaching me private English classes in Madrid (Spain). She identifies quickly all the weaknesses and needs of every student and works hard to strengthen them. Her communication skills are great and provides you all the information you need to keep studying by yourself at home.
In general I could say she has all the knowledge, expertise and skills to be a top rated teacher.
My experience with her was great. My French improved a lot thanks to his classes. Highly recommended!
Susan is a great teacher. She is very passionate about what she does and makes each lesson interesting at the same time as she has the ability to explain things in a clear and understandable way. She really helped me improve my Spanish. I highly recommend her!
