Susan is a great tutor for french, qualified, and is very invested in her students. You need to put in the work if you want to learn the language and she provides you the tools you need for that. She sits with you to practice, correct your French, and answer questions. She is a pleasure to work with.

Susan is probably the best teacher I have ever encountered. She is very patient when explaining the intricacies of the French language- and she does it in a way that makes it fun and therefore easy to remember. I’m amazed at how quickly my speaking skills have improved in such a short time. My favourite part of our time together is always our conversation practice. Susan has a non-judgemental approach to her teaching style which helps me feel relaxed and willing to go out on a limb. If you’re looking for someone who truly cares about your learning and someone who is passionate about their work, look no further. I highly recommend Susan to anyone learning French as a beginner or even for those who simply need to brush-up on their skills.

We have had the great fortune of working with Susan since the fall of 2020, and we could not be happier. We acquired her services on recommendation from our child’s FI teacher, to assist our 7-year-old with French immersion vocabulary and reading support. Over this time, Susan has proved herself to be caring, professional, knowledgeable and patient, and has developed a wonderful rapport with our child, who is extremely fond of her. Additionally, I have observed a vast improvement in my child’s reading comprehension, word recognition, and confidence with the French language overall. Based on this, I highly recommend Susan Zahradnik!

I highly recommend Susan because she is the best tutor/teacher you could find.
She is not only professional, she is also understanding and empathetic and she really cares about your improvement in the process of learning a langage.

I have been learning English with Susan for almost one year and without her I would have been lost.She is so patient.
She helps me to gain more confidence in me.She always adapts to my needs and encourage me when I feel discouraged.

I am so grateful to Susan for her professionalism, her patience, her kindness.

I’ve been taking Spanish lessons with Susan for the last few months and I can’t believe how far I’ve come! Susan is not only professional and encouraging, but also makes lessons enjoyable. I can’t recommend her enough if you’re serious about improving your Spanish.

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.

Salome

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's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Susan — For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by different cultures and languages. As a young teenager on my first trip outside of Canada, I recall clearly remembering trying to speak to people in Cuba and not being able to because of the language barrier. At that very moment, I decided I had to learn and perfect as many languages as I could because I wanted to be able to speak with other human beings that did not have the same language and culture as me. Since that trip, I have fostered a love of traveling and connecting with people as much as I can in every new place that I visit.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Susan — I absolutely love being able to help people. When I help someone learn a new language, whether it is English, French or Spanish, I help them open doors to the possibilities that life offers has to offer them, whether that is personal or professional. Knowing languages allows a person connect with other human beings around the world, and being able to assist people to do this makes me feel like I am helping people.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Susan — I really love the fact that I can tailor each class based on the specific student's needs and goals and I can witness and enjoy the student's growth. I can give personalised classes and help each student grow to their best potential. It is not possible to give specialised attention to students when I teach my larger classes because one person just cannot give the same attention to 15 or 20 people at the same time.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Susan — I was deeply inspired by my Grade 6 French teacher because she spoke four languages fluently. As a child, I looked up to her and simple could not believe how she was able to speak all of these languages so well. I aspired to be able to do the same thing. More than twenty years later, I have reached that goal and now teach three of the four languages that I speak.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Susan — I have learned three languages after my mother tongue, and through this learning process, I have developed a deep understanding of what language learning entails. I know exactly what it feels like to learn a new language. I know that it is sometimes intimidating and frustrating. As a teacher and language learner myself, it is important to be understanding, kind and patient. Having the insight on what it is like being a language learner has given me the ability to be a successful teacher.
