About Susan

I teach and tutor English to students worldwide, helping them improve their English language speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, and preparing them for English language exams (e.g. IELTS). I feel it is important to develop a good tutoring relationship with the student and make learning a pleasurable and fun activity. I have been teaching students for more than 20 years, both in a classroom and more recently, online. I am an experienced native English language speaker and writer.

My first priority is to get to know the student so I can understand their learning needs and discover how to help them achieve their learning goals. I tutor students in a friendly, respectful and encouraging environment. I believe that individual attention, prompt responses, excellent feedback and evaluation are important factors in promoting learning progress.

I specialize in business and conversational English and I am familiar with both US English and British English. I have a TESOL certificate and a Masters Degree in Education. My background is in science, technology and business, I have business experience in the technical sector with US and European multinational corporations and in education of adults and children.

I currently live in Chicago, USA but have lived and worked in several different European cities.
I look forward to hearing from you and discovering how I can help you be successful in your English language studies!
