Personal Description:

Su is originally from London, UK. She has lived in Vancouver for 13 years, and has an MA in Curriculum Studies from UBC. She has recently become a Canadian Citizen.

Tutoring Experience:

After gaining her Bachelor’s degree at the University of Sheffield, Su worked for several years in sales and marketing. Feeling that she wanted a more fulfilling career, she re-trained as a secondary school teacher at the Institute of Education (University of London). Su then went on to teach at three public schools, before emigrating to Canada with her husband in 2004.

For two years, Su worked at a private secondary school in Vancouver, teaching Geography 12, Planning 10 and Social Studies 11. She then decided to pursue post-graduate studies, and gained her Master’s degree (Curriculum and Pedagogy), from the University of British Columbia in 2013.

After that, Su worked as a tutor in English and Social Studies for a small independent academy, where she gained a reputation as a much sought-after and innovative educator. Su has a very clear perspective on how tutoring should be directed, and firmly believes that there is a need for exceptional, high quality tuition that is designed for the individual student.

Tutoring Approach:

Su works alongside high school and college students that need assistance with English or Social Studies.She aims to provide a nurturing and caring environment where young adults and teenagers receive custom-fit tuition. Her office is a place where tutoring is skilled, knowledgeable and professional, and where students have the opportunity to flourish.

Many students require extra help with their courses at one time or another: it may be that they are struggling with a particular aspect of the subject, or have a demanding project to complete or exam to write. They might be preparing for further education, or need help composing an essay or paper. Some need just a couple of sessions, some may require several more. Su works with each student to find the best resources and the most appropriate teaching and learning approaches to help them achieve their objectives, whilst keeping parents/guardians appraised of progress.

Most tuition takes place in a designed-for-purpose tutoring room centrally located on South Granville Street at 11th Avenue. It is a space that that allows students to feel comfortable and at home, but that encourages them to focus on the task in hand, to make the very most of the time given. The South Granville Street location is ideal for transportation links, as well as a great place for parents to shop or get a coffee whilst their children have their sessions.

Su is also more than happy to work online with students using a combination of FaceTime, Skype and Google Docs: although online tuition is not always ideal, it works well for students with busy schedules, or those outside the Vancouver area, or in different time zone.

Tuition is available from 12 midday to 9pm Monday to Friday, and 11am to 7pm on Saturdays, and at other times by arrangement. Sessions can be one-on-one, or for a group of up to four. Tutoring is also available as needed during the school holidays. In this way, parents and students can get to know Su, and further sessions can be prepared ahead of time.
