“Sue’s style of teaching is communicative, dynamic and motivating…”


Moving to Texas with her family in 1999, she began working as an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher, with a large class of multi-cultural students, from age 18 – 86.

After moving again in 2006, this time to France, she completed her TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certificate through WICE, Paris/Rutgers University, New Jersey, USA and began teaching Business English to professionals at various companies in the Paris area, including Vinci, Suez, GDF, Novartis, Sagemcom and Subsea 7. She also worked with French children aged 7 – 10 years, teaching reading, writing and communication skills in preparation for entering bilingual schools.

Since returning to the UK in 2013, Sue has been teaching English in the Stroud and Bristol area.  She recently studied for her Certificate in Business English Training (passing with Distinction) and is now working as a Business English tutor with several companies in the Bristol area.  She also works as a Community Learning Tutor for South Gloucestershire Council, teaching ESOL classes (English for Speakers of Other Languages) in a variety of locations around North Bristol.

Sue’s style of teaching is communicative, dynamic and motivating; she recognises the unique needs of her students and plans accordingly to ensure confidence-building and progressive learning. Her lessons are geared to provide the skills required for everyday life and work life – and to give her students the tools for keeping these skills.
