I believe that students of all ages learn best when they feel comfortable with their teacher. I aim to quickly develop a rapport with students and their caregivers, listening to their concerns and identifying their needs. I tailor sessions around objectives in the Education and Health Care Plan and Individual Education Plan if appropriate and am highly flexible in my approach.
I am a qualified English teacher who has worked in both mainstream and special education for over 20 years. Most recently I have worked as Head of English and then Head of Sixth Form in a special school. I have a good working knowledge of both Makaton and PECS as well as extensive ASD and behaviour modification training. I specialise in helping students of all ages with Dyslexic- type difficulties including university students. I have worked as a SENCO and hold the national qualification for this.

I trust her because she is the best role model for being the best teacher.She made my daughter more confident in her lesson and within a short period of time, my daughter learnt a lot from Suzie. She is wonderful and excellent .
Suzie is an amazing leader and a dedicated teacher to pupils. She put pupils needs before her needs. She taught pupils in special school who were Autistic and those with MLD and SLD. She has conducted lots of training to staff and parents, supporting parents who struggled at home with behaviour issues. She set out 5Ps and IEPs for pupils and worked tirelessly with families to support them with guidance at home towards independence and academic skills.
Suzie promoted bespoke teaching strategies to all teachers. She believed that pupils are different and needed individual approaches.
She was an amazing head of department with a good sense of humour and a lot of teaching experience in different categories.
Empathy and integrity are Suzie's hallmarks, and she has an admirable gift for inspiring others to pursue their dreams. Her devoted professionalism, delightful personality and infectious sense of humour equip her splendidly for tutoring, with her approach thoughtfully tailored to the needs of each individual student. I recommend Suzie unconditionally.
I've had the privilege to have worked with Suzie since 2017 (she was head of Sixth Form and head of English prior to that) and I can safely say she is a most able Teacher. Having a knack of moulding herself to students' varying levels and ability to adjust approach/pace accordingly has won her numerous penny-drop moments. An engaging personality also shines through.
I have been a friend and colleague of Suzie's for more than 10 years. Suzie is calm and patient with even the most challenging students, maintaining a professional but friendly attitude. She is able to adapt her approach as situations change to respond to her students needs. Throughout that time Suzie has had experience of working with pupils with a variety of needs and abilities across a range of subjects.
Suzie is an excellent teacher, and was a great colleague to work with. She has a flexible, 'no stone unturned' approach to securing the best outcomes for young people, and has worked with a highly diverse range of pupils with an array of strengths and needs. As well as being highly professional, she is a very warm and empathetic person.
