Amazing Mentor!

I told Susan about my background and the challenges that I have with my accent. What I liked about her is that is very knowledgeable and very professional. She knows what she is talking about and she can identify immediately the areas that need improvement. Also, I like the strategies that she offers to solve the issues. Susan suggested some exercises that are very practical and helpful. I am so glad that I have the opportunity to work with Susan. She is just amazing!

Erika, 7 lessons with Susan

Knowledgeable, sweet, and so patient.

Susan helped me with intonations, stresses, and pronunciations. Susan was so sweet to look up all the dental terms I use in my presentations and helped me with their pronunciations. We are still working together. After 2 sessions, I can feel the difference in my accent.

Amazing teacher with lots of experience

This was our first lesson. I talked about my language background. She listened to me patiently and later she let me read a paragraph and found out what my needs and difficulties are without me saying anything. Indeed she is a very professional and experienced teacher. I can't wait to take my next class with her☺️

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Susan is patient and capable of tailoring her teaching to meet my needs. We went over IPA to look at my vowels, and she was patient in answering all my questions about tongue placement, jaw movement, and stuff like that. 3 weeks in I already feel a difference in my speech.

A very warm and caring teacher, knows what she is doing

She diagnosed my problem areas on the spot! Gave me a lesson plan to start things off which are very customised to my needs. She brought her deep experience in this field to my session which is very very important! She emphasised a lot on the basics...something I truly respect.
