Hi! I’m Sue and I live in beautiful South Africa.
I’m a TEFL certified English teacher and I specialize in business English, conversational fluency, and pronunciation. I also have about 35 years’ experience in the business sector, including 25 years in education.
Do you lack confidence when you have to speak English? Do you wish you sounded more fluent? Do you have to keep repeating yourself because people can’t understand you? Frustrating, isn’t it?!
I want to help you achieve your English-speaking goals and to feel natural when you speak English. As you become more fluent, you will feel more confident. I want you to feel just like a native English speaker. That’s my goal for you!
I’ve taught hundreds of students – just like you – from beginners to advanced.
I’m a fun and patient teacher and my classroom is a relaxed, safe space where it’s okay to make lots of mistakes, because that's how you learn.
My passion is helping people who struggle with pronunciation – those tricky English sounds that are so difficult to say. Every language has unique challenges and I really believe my techniques can help you. Let me work with you to transform your English!
Learning happens in a fun and positive environment and when we experience language in different ways. I use a variety of learning methods: videos, podcasts, interesting texts, role-plays, real-life conversations and simulations. There’ll be lots of opportunities to practice – to build your speaking skills and your confidence. I’ll teach you tips and techniques that you can use, and I’ll give you practical tools to help you improve your English fluency.
Our trial lesson will be mostly conversational, where we’ll talk about your English goals and what you want to achieve. Then, I’ll create a tailored learning plan. We’ll focus on YOUR unique learning needs and I’ll work with you to help you achieve your goals.
If you'd like only conversational classes, we can do that too!
I believe in patient correction and constructive feedback – so that you know what you’re doing well, and areas you should work on.
In my spare time, I love learning Italian (Yes, I’m a student too!!), so I understand the challenges and frustrations that come with learning a language.
I’m excited to go on this journey with you. Let me help you speak naturally, sound professional, and feel confident.

Thank you Sue, What a wonderful lesson! Today I learned how to build up my mouth muscle to speak some vowel sounds. Although I could not do that very well, Sue still was very patient and tried to advice various approaches. These workable approaches gave me more inspirations and let me easy to handle vowel sounds after a while. I am very happy with that. Have a nice weekend.

I take classes with Sue for a few months regularly. The reasons that make me continue taking classes with Sue are: 1) my evolution 2) she always gives me constructive and specific feedback about my performance. This helps me identify areas I need to improve. 3) She shows commitment to my progress 4)she always creates or adapts study materials based on my needs. 5) She manages to maintain a motivating and positive environment during classes, which for an online class makes a lot of difference.
