I tailor my lessons to the needs of the student. This means I believe that Languages are important for communication and that a lesson should contain all four skills. I believe grammar and vocabulary are important. The lesson should be well structured, interesting and should have an element of fun. It is also necessary to use some traditional as well as modern methods of teaching such as role-plays, question and answer as well as ICT. Media also plays an important part especially television, video, radio, the internet and auditory stimulants. It is also good to use books, cartoons, rhymes, music, songs and poetry.
I have met many students on-line from all over the world and have been able to assist in their learning and achievements at all levels. Each lesson is different.
I have a passion for languages and speak several myself including French, German, Dutch, Portuguese and Japanese. At some point I have studied all the languages that we have in Europe and am able to communicate in others as a tourist. I have lived and worked in six countries: France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Spain and Brazil.
I have been giving private lessons in English on-line for 9 years to all levels from children to adults from all over the world. I have experience with examinations in Ielts, Cambridge, Toefl and IGCSE/GCSE. I speak German, French, Portuguese fluently so am able to help students who speak other languages and who wish to learn Englilsh.

I have been learning English with Susan for 3 years. I found Susan when searching for the lessons online. I appreciate her competence and professional approach. She proposes interesting topics for speaking and writing practice. I recommend Susan to the other Superprof members.
Susan is a wonderful teacher. She is kind, supportive, and always very patient and tactful in correcting mistakes. I have had the pleasure of studying English with Susan for six years and I learn a lot every lesson. She has a lot of teaching experience. I highly recommend Susan as an English language teacher.
I have been studying English language with Susan for a few years. Susan is a very professional experienced teacher. She is very flexible and finds the best way of learning for each student individually. Before I met Susan, I thought that I would never be able to communicate in English. Since then I have broken my language barrier and passed IELTS with high score. I would not ever do it without Susan. For me, starting learning English with Susan was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
A friend of mine recommended Susan almost three years ago. Not only is Susan a professional teacher, but she is also a perfect tutor, kind, intelligent and well-read person. My command of Englis, both written and spoken, has significantly improved thanks to her lessons. I definitely recommend Susan to the other Superprof members.
