Julie

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.

Susan

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.

David

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.
