About Ruby

Highly experienced, patient and inspiring tutor.

I have worked as a teacher and tutor for almost ten years, and I am passionate about education. My tutoring experience is extensive and varied; I have worked with students as young as age 3, right up to adult learners.

I can teach:

-English and Creative Writing for 8+, 11+ and 13+ entrance exams
-Maths and Verbal/Non-Verbal Reasoning for 8+ and 11+ entrance exams
-Early Years Support in Phonics and Numeracy
-English as a Foreign Language
-Exam Technique, Interview Preparation and Essay Writing
-Creative Writing feedback up to MA level

I have successfully tutored pupils for entry into top London schools including Westminster, Dulwich College, Latymer Upper, Emanuel, Mill Hill, and Highgate.

I strongly believe in tailoring my teaching methods to the needs of each student, so that they can achieve their full potential. I am not a 'worksheet' tutor - I do dip into existing resources and textbooks, but I also develop my own materials in response to a student's needs and individual learning style. Over the years, I have built up a library of resources, including games and other creative learning tools, which I draw upon to create engaging and fun lessons. While academic achievement is undoubtedly important, I also aim to boost students’ confidence and self-esteem, and inspire a genuine interest in lifelong learning and creativity.

My daughter is currently 4.5 and began with Ruby around 3.5 years old , after a summer break my daughter is now returning to English lessons. Ruby's method of educational play has made a great difference in my daughter's development within reading and maths. Ruby has provided a solid foundation and excellent start for my daughter who currently attends a prep school.

I have no hesitation to recommending Ruby. My daughter enjoys her lessons and looks forward to seeing Ruby for every lesson.
