About Susan

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.

MEd- Masters of Education- Language and Literacy Education (University of Toronto)
TESOL- Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages-Equivalent to CELTA (University of Toronto)
BA- French/English Translation (York University)
MA CSE- I am currently studying another MA in child development to further my qualifications in order to become an OCT teacher. (University of Toronto)

    When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?

    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.

    What makes you passionate about your subject?

    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.

    What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?

    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.

  • 04

    Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?

    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.

  • 05

    What are your keys to success?

    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.
