Information about Ruth

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

I have an up to date enhanced disclosure certificate which can be accessed online.

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: A Note For Families Living Abroad:
I am generally available for online tutoring in the mornings UK time and am now starting to receive bookings for families living abroad in a different time zone. Please do not hesitate to get in touch to see if my availability is compatible with your time zone.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

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

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.

Ruth has been tutoring my son for several months (English and Maths) . She also helped us with his school homework. She is a very experienced tutor and can keep my 6 year older son engaged and focused through the lesson. I highly recommend Ruth as an excellent tutor.

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.

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

I had a fear of maths at School, which thanks to Ruth I’ve overcome and I’m actually starting to enjoy.

Ruth has totally turned my daughters attitude to maths around, her maths scores have changed from less than half, to top marks. Ruth is very approachable, and put my daughter at ease from the very beginning. Ruth we really can’t thank you enough.

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.
