Information About Su
This is how 2 referees rated Su:
Su is originally from London, UK. She has lived in Vancouver for 15 years, and has an MA in Curriculum Studies from UBC. She has recently become a Canadian Citizen.
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.
Su works alongside high school and college students that need assistance with English or Social Studies. Her tutoring is skilled, knowledgeable and professional, enabling students to 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.
Su works online with students, typically using a combination of FaceTime, Skype and Google Docs: this 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 8.30pm Monday to Friday, and 11.30am to 5.30pm on Saturdays (PST), and at other times by arrangement. Tutoring is also available as needed during the school/college holidays.
