Information about Ruth
As a Head of Department with over five years of tutoring experience, I am confident in strengthening pupils ability with both content and exam technique for GCSE and A-Levels. I have been teaching Geography at an OFSTED Outstanding school in Twickenham, South London since 2015. As well as teaching Geography at all school levels, I am an EPQ tutor in my school too.
I studied Geography with Management at Loughborough University as an undergraduate, with a preference for modules in Human Geography. I obtained a 2:1 upon Graduation and was awarded the `Most Outstanding Student` across a 130 student strong course for departmental contribution.
I tailor tutoring sessions to address individual needs, whether that be gaps in knowledge, or teaching the correct technique to answer exam questions. After the UK school closures in Spring 2020, I am able to prioritise focus on such elements that may have been missed in physical lessons in class. Use of personal learning checklists are used upon first sessions with tutees, and the most helpful approach to tutoring can be determined. Exam papers are frequently used, including those which are available for teacher access only on many exam board websites. I strongly believe in use of previous questions and mark schemes for high attainment.
Availability: As I am a full time teacher during the week, my availability will be after 6pm on weekdays, and any time on Sundays. As I work in Twickenham and live in Wandsworth, I can cover areas in both locations and in between.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have tutored over 20 pupils through both A-Level and GCSE courses in AQA, Edexcel and OCR.
