Ruth's biography:

Ruth read Geography at the University of Bristol, graduating with 1st class honours. Having previously worked as a teaching assistant in Hereward House School in Hampstead she knew she wanted to continue enthusing and educating children. She then joined the Teach First Leadership Development Programme where she achieved an ‘Outstanding’ PGCE from the UCL Institute of Education.

Teaching EYFS and KS1 in a North London school she raised end of year attainment by 20%. Ruth then moved to work as part of a team setting up a new free school and established the Early Years department as the Early Years and Phonics Lead. She is currently completing a MA Leadership at the UCL Institute of Education researching approaches to teaching and learning in the Early Years and is predicted to complete in August 2017 with a Distinction.

Ruth believes that education opens doors and is passionate about ensuring that all children reach their full potential. By creating the right environment and appropriate personalised support Ruth ensures all children make outstanding progress, and by utilising their interests also creates a passion and enthusiasm for learning. She has been working with children from Highgate School to successfully prepare for the 7+ and 11+. By assessing each child individually she created a tailored programmed of tutoring to enable specific focus on areas of learning where the most support is required to ensure outstanding progress and enable the child to succeed. Ruth has also been supporting children with specific learning needs, creating individualised support to ensure they progress and meet their learning goals.

When not in the classroom or tutoring Ruth enjoys exploring Hampstead Heath and baking!
