Information about Ruth

I am a very well-qualified and extremely experienced teacher with an honours degree from Oxford University and over 20 years of primary school teaching, supply teaching and private tuition, including tutoring pupils for Common Entrance and 11+ exams. I have a wealth of experience of teaching primary pupils of all ages with a wide range of learning needs.

I also specialise in preparing pupils in Y2 and Y6 for English and Mathematics SATs, as well as providing general tuition in English and Mathematics.

With private tuition and one to one teaching and learning, I believe it is paramount that the tutor is patient, understanding and kind and builds up a positive working relationship with the pupil in order to help them to succeed.

I can also offer French tuition at primary level.

Availability: I am now offering Wednesday daytime for international clients.
I am available for private tuition in English and Mathematics for pupils of any primary school age. I can teach English and Mathematics from EYFS (Reception Year) through to Year 6 and Level 6. I also have thorough subject knowledge in the teaching of phonics for reading and writing.

I am also now offering the daytime on Wednesdays for international clients.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: Recent teaching in Year 6 means that I am up to date with current curriculum requirements for reading, writing, grammar and mathematics and how to help pupils achieve expected standard/greater depth in these core subjects.

DBS Check: Yes

We have been really lucky to have found Ruth. She is absolutely fantastic! She has very rich experience and knowledge in the subject, and her inspiring teaching has helped my 8-years-old daughter tremendously. She is very resourceful and has a thorough understanding of the national curriculum, besides which she is very patient and kind with kids. Ruth has also customised her style and content to cater for our needs. She set up a meeting with us in advance before the first lessons started to get to know our requirements, which was extremely helpful. We have booked weekly lessons with her and will continue the lessons on regular basis. We would highly recommend Ruth to anyone!

I can’t recommend Ruth highly enough. She quickly developed a trusted and supportive relationship with my daughter, building her confidence in areas that had been a struggle. This has translated into her class work and given her the boost she needed.

Ruth is an amazing tutor, able to adapt her teaching very well to the needs and attitudes of the students. My twin boys have a completely different nature but Ruth has always managed their attention in any circumstances.

We started working with Ruth at the beginning of the year and we are very happy with her. Our son is looking forward to his lessons with Ruth, which is quite amazing considering he otherwise doesn’t like to read or write. She’s very engaging and makes the lessons interesting and interactive. We highly recommended Ruth.

Ruth has been helping both my son (Year 7) and daughter (Year 4) with their English comprehension and writing online. Ruth is always well prepared for their lessons, and she goes over what they did after each lesson with me. Both of my children enjoyed lessons with Ruth and is very grateful that we were able to find such a dedicated teacher on Tutorhunt.

Ruth is just the person you need if your child needs some help. A nice friendly learning style who explains things carefully and keeps the lessons fun. Choosing her would be a great choice.

We are so pleased with our new tutor for our ten year old. Ruth is extremely organised , reliable and a pleasure to work with. My son says " it is much better having Ruth to do maths with me, I don`t always understand what they are asking at school, then we only get ten minutes to do it! " . Ruth puts him at ease and makes the learning experience more valuable . Many thanks

If you are looking for a calm, kind engaging and friendly tutor I would recommend Ruth Cleaver. She has already made a difference to our child in just a few weeks. Her sessions are fun and she takes time to explain things clearly. We are delighted with Ruth.
