We went to Ruth a little late in the day, but even so our son achieved a couple of grades above predictions - and Ruth was clearly responsible for most of that!

Absolutely delighted to have picked up A level results this morning - Ruth helped our daughter move from a Y12 predicted C grade in english to A!!! Obviously this outcome is tremendous, and Ruth really helped on how to structure and present ideas in coursework and exam prep making sure to draw a broader context - all the aspects a sixth form tutor doesn’t have time to co-work on at such depth. But what has so impressed me is how well Ruth works w young people. She has instilled a new confidence in our daughter’s approach to her studies, built camaraderie, connected closely and renewed a curiosity and passion in her for the subject that sadly got lost pre-GCSE. She actually enjoyed going for lessons! Sometimes she would turn up stressed or miserable from the day - but always, always came out beaming & delighted with her session! If you’re wondering about the cost, don’t - worth every single penny. Plus I liked the way Ruth was flexible & responsive on organising either regular or random dates/ times. Thanks for everything Ruth, you’ve been amazing! X

Tutors Response :

My pleasure Caroline, to work with and support your daughter`s super results at A level History and English! Thank you for trusting her to me and I wish her the very best at university!

Excellent! My 9-year-old daughter has been visiting Ruth for tutoring for 10 weeks! She enjoys her sessions with Ruth and looks forward each week to attending them. Ruth is very professional and I feel rest assured that my daughter is receiving the support she needs to keep her on track for the 11+.

My daughter is in year 8 and has had few sessions with Ruth. I can see changes in her already. She is consciously trying to improve herself outside the classes too. Ruth is very methodical and is very friendly. My daughter enjoys her classes and is eager to go back every week. I would be very happy to recommend Ruth to others.

Ruth performed a miracle with my son Akash who achieved grades in English Language and English Literature at GCSE level that he could only dream of in January. In a few short months, Ruth taught him so well that he surpassed himself. Thank you Ruth.

Tutors Response :

Neeta, Thank you, I`m thrilled for his super results and he should be justifiably proud of himself! I look forward to working with him next term at A level.
Best wishes

Ruth is an excellent tutor. She tutored our son in the last few months of his English Language and Literature GCSEs and renewed his enthusiasm for both subjects. She particularly helped with exam technique and a positive approach to studying. And his final results jumped up by three grades. Thank you so much.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for this super feedback! I`m delighted at his GCSE results and please pass on my congratulations! Best wishes Ruth

My son has only had a few lessons with Ruth and what an amazing change already. He is actually enjoying his lessons and looks forward to her tutorials. She has demonstrated very early on that her aim is for my son to take control of his own learning and not `just do it for him`. She has a lot of experience and knows the subject. Not only has she been able to help him improve his English skills but has also demonstrated to him how these skills are transferable into all of his subjects, so also now seeing a difference in RS and History. I look forward to seeing more improvements!I have no regrets in choosing her to tutor my 14yr old

Tutors Response :

Thank you Kulvinder, its a pleasure to work with your son!

I booked Ruth for a Crash Course in English for my daughter taking the 13+ exam. My Daughter really enjoyed her sessions with Ruth and found her very helpful. When she finally got around to taking the exam she used the knowledge she had learnt from Ruth to finish the exam. She also got 10 out of 10 for her spellings at school thanks to Ruth. I would highly recommend her to anyone and will use her again in the future.

Thank you Helen, it was a pleasure to tutor Leah!
