Information about Andrea
I`ve been a qualified teacher for 11 years and have been head of maths for 10 years in both state and independent settings.
I graduated from the University of Portsmouth in 2006 with an engineering degree before completing my PGCE in mathematics. I worked as a coastal defence engineer for 2yrs before returning to teaching.
Over the duration of my teaching career I have completed my Post Graduate Diploma to become a qualified teacher of the deaf, a Masters Degree in Mathematics Education and an a Post Graduate Certificate in advanced audiology.
I have taught a range of subjects including the three core sciences and mathematics to GCSE level.
I have taught in special schools for deaf children and am well practised in delivering for highly differentiated learning needs, catering for those with significant learning difficulties as well as challenging those who are gifted and talented.
In the independent sector I have experience of teaching to the 11+ and Common Entrance levels 1, 2 and 3 in mathematics.
My teaching style is focused on the individuality of my students. I pride myself on being able to adapt sessions to needs of students to ensure that they understand concepts rather than just remembering processes. I encourage discovery learning and try to facilitate this as much as possible while still maintaining a suitable pace when prepping for exams.
Availability: I currently have availability at any time due to the holidays. Once back in September, I will be available after school and at weekends. I am now happy to meet in person, pending government advice changes, and to this end, if you prefer I am happy to tutor outside in a garden, but am also able to meet online if you prefer.
Willing to travel: 3 miles

Feedback For Andrea (7)
Andrea is an amazing tutor. My daughter has really engaged with Physics now and is enjoying her tutoring very much.
Andrea is a great teacher, very meticulous and professional.
Both my son and I have been so pleased with how professional Mrs Ruck is as a Tutor, how student focused she is and how she approaches tutoring overall in Physics. She is engaged, collaborative, and ensures our son has properly grasped the learnings from the lesson. She also readily takes input and feed-back from the school, the student and the parents then works to address this. Definitely recommend her to others based on our experience.
My son and I agree that Andrea is an excellent tutor. She has a genuine gift for teaching and has always made the lessons interesting and encouraging. She is extremely professional and 100% trustworthy.
