Information about Ruth

I am a fully qualified teacher with over 9 years of teaching experience and over 15 years of experience in working with young people. English and Literacy are my subject specialisms. I trained as a primary teacher but I have an extra 5 years experience in secondary. Before I did my PGCE, I had training in teaching English as a foreign language. I also worked as Head of the English Department for the Buckinghamshire county-wide PRU, so I have a very up-to-date knowledge and stock of resources for the new English GCSE.

For students who don`t have time/money for face to face sessions, I am happy to do task/essay marking and detailed feedback.

First of all, my child met her at the age of seven and started learning English. Because of her method of teaching through games worked very effectively, my child started to be interested in English and is making rapid progress now. We are looking forward to our child`s continuous development in English and would like to recommend the tutor to other parents. Thank you to Ms.Ruth who gave my child a good motivation!:0)

An excellent tutor for learning English: Ruth is an outstanding tutor to improve your writing skills. She has an excellent capability to spontaneously understand students’ requirements and tailor her lessons accordingly. Without any doubt, she has an extensive knowledge and enormous experience in academic writing. She really has a passion to teach English and always enjoys her teaching. Also, she is ready to explore and learn new topics. She is not a clock-watcher, for example, our lessons sometimes go beyond the scheduled time without any additional fees. Also, she is always very happy to help with my writing out of lesson hours which you would find very rarely from tutors. For any set of questions, she goes beyond limits and prepares detailed answers with very good examples which significantly help me to quickly improve my writing skills. I wish I could have found Ruth earlier as my tutor to improve my writing skills. Without any second thoughts, I would strongly recommend Ruth to anyone who would like to learn English, or improve your English writing and communication skills.

Ruth has been tutoring my son for a few weeks now. She is professional, punctual and an enthusiastic tutor. As well as focusing on problem areas in tutoring sessions she sets extra work to do outside the sessions, marks it and emails the results back to my son with full details of where he can make improvements and keeps me `in the loop` too! My son`s confidence has improved no end. Fingers crossed for a successful exam result! I would thoroughly recommend Ruth.

Ruth came across as very genuine and really listened to my son to understand what help he needed.
She also scored 5 stars from him which is pretty amazing, I am currently on a 2 star rating from him !!

Ruth was chosen to tutor my two children ages 6yrs and 11yrs as her profile was very impressive. Though she only tutored my children for a short period due to my personal circumstances, from the outset she was friendly, punctual, and extremely professional. My children were very fond of her and she impressed me with her approach, technique and knowledge she gave in tutoring my two children. Her dedication and her capability to tutor is excellent! I very highly recommend Ruth to any parent looking for a tutor in either maths or English, and will be definitely using her again in the near future.

I have been having lessons with Ruth since September, when I started my GCSE English, in order to help me to improve my skills. She has really helped me to cope with the English that I do at school and I feel that I have improved as a result. She is good with explaining things in much greater detail, as well as breaking things down for me so that I can get a better understanding. I am glad I have Ruth as my tutor as I am beginning to feel confident.

Ruth has only been tutoring my son English for a few weeks but he has come on in leaps and bounds! She encourages him and has a way of teaching that helps him understand. She also emails me an evaluation of his progress after each lesson. I am absolutely delighted.
