Experienced, encouraging tutor looking for new students

I am a bilingual History graduate with a background in European politics and affairs, campaigning and journalism. Recently returned to London following a three year stint in Paris and Brussels, I am currently undertaking postgraduate study in social innovation.

I have significant experience teaching children and young people of all ages in subjects including French, English, History and Maths, as well as providing entrance exams and study skills support. Recent successes include supporting a student achieve a top A* in her History A level and helping two other A level students push their grades up from an E to a C.

My previous work experience in political communications relied on the ability to break down complex ideas to engage, inform and persuade a broad audience with differing levels of political understanding. Applying this to my work with students, it is my firm belief that no concept is too difficult if conveyed compellingly and with the active engagement of the learner. I seek to incorporate my passion for lifelong learning in every lesson.

In my spare time I like to travel and to make the most of all the cultural opportunities London has to offer.

Ruby Waterworth

Ruby has been tutoring my daughter for 3 months. They hit it off straight away. Ruby is a natural teacher, quickly working out what methods worked best in my daughter's particular case. Ruby is very patient and kind but also the kind of person you want to do your best work for. Ruby's French teaching skills and knowledge of the language are excellent. Ruby is very reliable and communicates effectively with me.
Subject:
French
Outcome:
We do not know the outcome yet but so far so good.

Ruby tutored my daughter for A level History over this Summer holidays when she arrived promptly, gave well structured lessons and was happy to be guided by my daughter about the format of the lessons. My daughter will be taking her A level in June 2018 so hopefully Ruby will continue to tutor her until then.

History
Outcome:
My daughters' confidence has increased about various topics that they have covered together.
