About Sue

I've taught English for many years--English as a second language, writing and literature. I love working with students and helping them to reach their full potential. I've had a lot of success with teaching ESL students to speak and write excellent English and also with helping literature students to analyze fiction, poetry and plays.

I have my Ph.D. in English from Brown university and worked for 22 years at Boston College as an English instructor and director of the learning center. Before getting my Ph.D., I taught ESL in Germany for seven years and also taught special education at the high school level. (I also have a master's degree in special ed.)

I am experienced in all areas of teaching English and have worked with students of every age and level, from junior high school to older adults, from beginners in the language to advanced graduate students.

I'd love the opportunity to work with you--let's talk!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I taught ESL in Germany for seven years to students of all ages. I have also taught many ESL students on the college and graduate level.
