Map for Ruth (Mrs)


Personal Description:

I possess a first class honours in English and a Masters in History and Politics, as well as a PGCE and TEFL qualification. In addition, I recently won a prize as an aspiring first time novelist for Young Adults. I am passionate about language and literature.

Tutoring Experience:

I enjoy teaching, adapting my methods to suit different kinds of students. I have a wide range of experience as an English secondary school teacher (ages 11-18). I worked for a number of years abroad in an international school before moving to an independent school in the UK. More recently, I have been teaching KS3 through A-level in a state school and have just moved to London where I am taking on responsibility for KS4. Besides being an examiner for both AQA and the Cambridge Board, I also teach classes through a revision consultancy (Justin Craig) for GCSE and A-level English Literature/Language (all boards). I have extensive experience tutoring in the UK and abroad. On a personal level, I taught both my own children and others in a home school cooperative from primary school through to A-levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that tutoring should be structured and focused whilst seeking to inspire. Students need to be given both the tools and motivation to move forward. I am patient, enthusiastic and passionate about what I teach. I believe in challenging my students.
