We collect references for all of our tutors when they join. Not all referees agree to have their reference publically listed, but when they do we show them here.

Ruth is an excellent teacher. I could not recommend her more highly, for her ability to be a team player and her excellence both pastorally and academically with pupils. Ruth is knowledgeable, organised and the clearest explained or difficult concepts I know. She is capable of differentiating for needs effectively and assessing pupils understanding and motivation to plan future lessons accordingly. We would have her back at my school any time.
