Life Long Learner teaches early career learners the dispositions to become life long learners themselves

Methodology

If you are keen to learn and to achieve at school or university to the best of your ability, I can help you achieve your goals! I believe in student focused inquiry based learning drawing on evidence-based principles. Teaching and learning are active functions and focused on individual needs. Discussion and student capacity to check for understanding at regular intervals is vital to my practice, as is colour and creativity.

My students are now doctors, lawyers and successful business owners. What might I help you become?!

Background

I have both a Bachelor of education and a Masters' of education and am part way through my Doctorate of education. I have been teaching at a Secondary level since 1982 and at a tertiary level since 2005. My students now include doctors, lawyers, teachers, actors and nurses. Feedback and Reviews of tutorials and workshops are available from (concealed information)

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.
