I am a highly experienced English teacher with experience of leading a very successful English department. I now work with young refugees across the Leeds city area and do a small amount of tutoring in the evenings. I have two children, one of whom has just finished his GCSEs so have first hand experience of how to manage the pressures of school, particularly during the exam years.
I taught 11-18 English for over 20 years and my students always achieved excellent results. I was head of English for 6 years and am very proud that students in my department made some of the best progress in Leeds. I love my subject, I love working with young people and I have an excellent understand of the English curriculum. I also work as an exam marker so have a comprehensive understanding of the new GCSEs and the skills that young people need to develop in order to succeed in them.
I have a good understanding of the demands of the school curriculum and, particularly if you're working at GCSE level, I will ensure that you are developing the skills you need in order to achieve the levels you're aiming for.
I'm happy to negotiate with you and find ways of working that interest and engage you most.

Ruth tutored our son toward his GCSE English - she came shortly after his mock exams and had an almost immediate impact. This, in turn, grew his confidence in English but also in other subjects.
She was kind, patient, easy to deal with but also prepared, knowledgeable and professional.
We are very grateful for her help.
I believe that Ruth will help my son gain his confidence to preform his best in his GCSE English double award
