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.

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!

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.
