I have worked in the same school as Sue and my children have been taught by her. She is definitely one of the most dedicated and knowledgable teachers I have ever worked with. She is a super intelligent lady with a caring disposition.

Sue is one of the most dedicated and effective teachers I have worked with. If you are looking for tutoring in a history, education or a research based subject, Sue has a wealth of experience to bring to the table. Not only will Sue target your writing skills but enhance your thinking processes to develop a more sophisticated approach to the topic. Sue's feedback is clear and strategic. I've witnessed many students improve significantly under Sue's guidance.

I worked with Sue for many years when we were both Heads of Faculty at St Aidan's Anglican Girls' School. Sue is an intelligent, creative teacher. For me, she is also a trusted colleague and collaborator.
At St Aidan's, we worked together to implement the Big History Project. This gave me the opportunity to team-teach with Sue. I learned an enormous amount from her meticulous planning and innovative pedagogy. She thinks deeply about her practice as a teacher and inspired me to do likewise.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Sue for any role for which she felt qualified to apply.

Having worked with Sue for many years I can state that she is a dedicated and outstanding teacher of English and Ancient History. She gives more than 100% to her students and I wish her all the best for her future.

Sue is one of the greatest educators I've ever had the privilege of knowing. She is an extremely intelligent, patient, thoughtful and passionate teacher. Every lesson with her is like a journey through time and as exciting and fun as it is informative. She makes you feel in control of your learning and empowered by it, and I couldn't recommend a teacher more. She is an exceptional tutor and I am so grateful for having been a student of hers.
