Suzanne is, without a doubt, an indispensable program and course designer on top of being one of the most effective teaching staff members I have had the responsibility and pleasure to have teach for me....it is clear that she prepares meticulously, gages the individual needs of each learner, masterfully communicates lecture material, and expertly facilitates discussions....
Suzanne, with amazing sophistication, is skilled at designing academic programs in a variety of art historical academic subjects, at implementing and teaching such programs, at devising the curriculum content from start to finish, and providing the learners of such programs with the mastery of requisite analytical skills and knowledge....

There is no question in my mind that Ms Tevlin has an incredible passion for, and knowledge of Art, in its broadest context. She is well prepared, passionate and knowledgeable. She interacts well with her students- providing encouragement, feedback and patience.

Her passion for her Art practice and her commitment to teaching is imparted to students with enthusiasm and generosity.....Suzanne's encouragement, direction and support of her students exceed(s) her teaching obligations.....I would not want to lose a valued member of the teaching complement... -OCAD
It is rare to find a good practicing artist with a facility for teaching. Suzanne Tevlin is such an artist. Over the years, she has proven her capabilities both here and abroad. It is through her experiences that her art and teaching has developed to such an extent.......She offers a different and refreshing slant on art education......(she) is well informed, articulate and open to the ideas and opinions of others. She is resourceful and responsible to any endeavor she undertakes. -University of Toronto
It is evident to me that Ms Tevlin knows her students well. She can speak of the interests and talents of each as well as the attitudes which help each student or hinder her in her work. She takes a great deal of pleasure in working with them....she in no way intimidates (them) with her own skill,..never deflates (their) confidence. She also has patience......She not only sets high standards, but encourages students to believe that they will be able to meet these standards. -Havergal College

Art & History is all encompassing. The lectures were presented so
enthusiastically that information was easily absorbed. The enthusiasm
is so contagious that I find myself reading supplimentary material in

going manner. I would highly recommend this course." -U of T
