Information about Ruth

I am a fully qualified English Teacher (both Language and Literature) at Key Stages 3, 4 & 5 with a proven track record in state secondary education and private tutoring, based on the East Sussex/Kent border. In my roles as a part-time English Teacher in a school and a private tutor, I have consistently raised the achievement level of my pupils, often by several grades.
I have a BA Honours degree in English and American Literature. I spent many years working in the city as a solicitor, before following my true vocation of teaching, where I have found my niche. I qualified via the Schools Direct Scheme and obtained my PGCE from the University of Sussex.
I have recently completed a Master of Arts in Education at the University of Sussex with a focus on encouraging reading to improve life chances. I am very enthusiastic about my subject and I am keen to support pupils who need extra tutoring for a variety of reasons. I have experience with tutoring SEN pupils and Looked After Children.
I am passionate about teaching, and enjoy seeing the difference I can make to children’s lives. I am a highly enthusiastic, knowledgeable and well-prepared teacher with a calm, patient approach and I inspire my pupils with a love of English, giving them the confidence to do well in their exams.

Ruth is an excellent tutor. She is well organised,kind and having a great ability to keep the students interest and attention within the lesson.She sends work sheets.Amazing ability to show the depth and breadth of the Subject tailored to the stage of the learning. Since starting lessons with Ruth my daughter does her work with more confidence and interest.I am sure this will reflect in her upcoming assessment too. I am happy I started her on the right time in the GCSE course.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback! I was very moved by all the lovely comments and I am so glad that my tuition is helping your daughter. She is an absolute delight and I look forward to our lessons together. I am really excited to see what she will be able to do when she takes her GCSEs next academic year as she has made a flying start with me.
Kind regards,

Ruth is an excellent teacher. She helped my son achieve A** (9) in English. My son was struggling in English and he was predicted 6 but with Ruth`s help he achieved an excellent result. So thank you Ruth.

Tutors Response :

Dear Naveed,

You are very welcome! I was absolutely thrilled to hear how well your son did in his English GCSE and I am so proud of him, as you must be!

Kind regards,

Ruth

Ruth was selected for her English specialism and her experience of working with Looked After Children (LAC). She was understanding and supportive of both the requirements of the learner, and the Children`s Home`s conditions for tutoring a LAC. Ruth quickly established a very effective working relationship with the child, whom has sustained very positive engagement and attendance with Ruth. Ruth`s specialism in English, also met the abilities of this able child. Ruth has helped to significantly increase the child``s progress in her GCSE studies. I would recommend Ruth to prospective clients.

Tutors Response :

Hi Chris,

Many thanks for your positive feedback. I have very much enjoyed working with your learner and it was so nice to see the positive response I received from her. Thank you for all you help with co-ordinating the lessons and homework.

Kind regards,

Ruth

We wanted more than tutoring to the GCSE test and found it! Ruth is helping our teenage daughter to discover the joy of reading (where our best efforts had failed) Wise and friendly, she engages with our adolescent that balances teaching a child with challenging the emerging adult. Spare slots in Ruth’s schedule are unsurprisingly rare.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your wonderful feedback! It has been my pleasure to work with your daughter and to see the reader within her starting to emerge. I have always believed that it is just the case of finding the right book, and I believe that I have with her. I am so proud of the progress she is making.

Ruth is an excellent teacher. She is friendly, sympathetic, friendly and totally professional. My daughter is looking forward to weekly classes with her. She tries every possible way to help my daughter develop and concentrate on the lessons. By communicating with her teachers and me, she helps my daughter learn what subjects she studied at school in the fields of history, English and geography, and understand her lessons at school more easily. And there is a noticeable improvement in my daughter`s interest and success in school lessons. I highly recommend her.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. I was thrilled to get it and I really enjoy teaching your daughter. It has been wonderful to watch her confidence increasing. Ruth

Ruth helped my daughter prepare for GCSE English assessments which replaced the regular exams due to the pandemic. My daughter found her warm, very experienced and always encouraging. She enjoyed working with someone so supportive - her confidence and marks have improved as a result.

Tutors Response :

Hello Eileen,

My teenage son really enjoys his weekly lesson with Ruth, which in itself is an achievement! He feels he is making good progress and this has been borne out by positive comments from his school teacher. Ruth mirrors the content Zach is covering at school, which helps reinforce his understanding and extends his knowledge further. Ruth is professional and personable. Zach immediately felt at ease with her. I would highly recommend Ruth

Tutors Response :

Hi Sue,

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. I am really enjoying working with Zach and I am thrilled to see the progress that he is making. He is a pleasure to teach!

Kind regards,

Ruth

Really pleased with my son’s growth in confidence since starting lessons with Ruth. He has always struggled with getting to grips with the skills and techniques required to answer English language GCSE questions however Ruth has patiently taken him through things and it’s great to hear him acknowledge how helpful he’s finding the classes.

Ruth is the best tutor my children have ever had! They are home educated and Ruth teaches them English, History and Geography. Her passion for learning is captivating and her adaptation of the lessons to suit my children`s needs is exceptional. Ruth rang me the day before she was due to meet the children for the first time which really broke the ice and gave me the opportunity to speak with her about our requirements. She has taken the time and care to get to know my daughters and her manner is so positive, her encouragement brings out the best in them. Ruth is an exceptional communicator and this is evident in the retention of knowledge she has conveyed. When I asked them what they think of Ruth, they said "There`s no point in looking for any other tutor, Ruth is the best! I would give her 6 stars" and "She is always willing to look at things from your point of view and always adapts her teaching to your way of thinking. I would never want another tutor!"

Tutors Response :

Hi Julie! Thank you for the fantastic feedback. I am thoroughly enjoying working with the girls who are a delight to teach and so keen to learn that it makes our lessons a pleasure. Thank you so much for engaging me as their tutor.
