An enthusiastic English tutor with over 25 years experience
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
Hi my name is Ruth and my first degree in English is from Queen’s University Belfast. I gained my PGCE and qualified teacher status through the Open University, and my Masters in Education from Worcester University.
Currently, I have over 25 years of teaching experience and have a genuine desire in supporting all my students in improving their grades. It is so rewarding to see young people achieve their grades and further their careers.
Moreover, not only have I experience in whole class teaching but am proficient in 1:1 tutoring where I can assess my learner’s strengths and weakness and complete individualised learning plans to boost student grades.
Consistently, over the years I have had very good success rates with students achieving top grades.
My specialist subjects are English Language and Literature and I can teach from primary level up to ‘A’Level. I also offer 11+ and entrance exam tuition.
I am available Monday to Saturday both day time and evenings.
Ruth is very helpful and supportive. She provides a lot of documentation and work during and after class :)
My son joined tuition with Ruth, and he found her very supportive and friendly. She was very good in helping him to understand better.
Ruth gives really in-depth detail on exam question, critics, context etc! She has really helped me out with my assessment objectives and my writing skills. She’s very supportive and puts a lot of effort into the lessons. I really recommend! :)
My son really enjoyed his first lesson. He understood the subjects reviewed which were PETER paragraph and AO2 analysis. We will be booking another session with Ruth!
Ruth is a very committed tutor. I like for patience and the way she explains things in detail until she is satisfied that you understand. she has help me built my communication skills. I recommend her
