I believe that in order for effective learning to take place, students of all ages and abilities need to feel comfortable with their teacher. I work hard to build up a rapport with my students as quickly as possible, identifying their needs and discussing their personal targets. Each student is treated as an individual and I adapt my teaching techniques accordingly. After each lesson I provide a log of what has been learned and each individual’s next steps. I am patient, friendly and flexible.
I qualified as an English teacher in 1995 after and since then have worked with students of all ages and abilities in a range of settings. I taught GCSE and A-levels in English in mainstream comprehensive schools and a Pupil Referral unit; more recently I have worked as Head of English and then Head of sixth form at a secondary special school where I devised and taught a curriculum for students at the very earliest stages of reading and writing. I have prepared students for the 11+ and private school entrance exams as well as helping undergraduate students with Dyslexia to plan and structure their essays.

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.
