Hi, my name is Ruth and I live in the beautiful Lake District area in Cumbria, England.
I am currently setting up my own business providing academic learning skills to 6th form students and mature students who are aiming to go to university.
Having spent eight years teaching undergraduates at university, mainly first year students, I very quickly realised that far too many of them had not been equipped with some of the basic skills they need to study at university level. Once they had been taught the skills they needed, the students gained so much in confidence and in their ability to study effectively and to succeed in their chosen area.
Being equipped with these basic skills means that students can concentrate on their studies properly, without worrying about what is expected of them, or how to find the information/help they need.
I am happy to work with students on a one to one basis, or with a small group of students. Small groups work well as students bounce ideas off each other as well as with the tutor. Both one to one and small group tutoring allow for more tailored sessions – concentrating on the areas concern students the most.
If you live in the Cumbria or North Lancashire area, are a student or a parent, and wish to know more please fill in the form below with your contact details and I’ll be happy to get back to you to discuss further.
