I am an experienced, professional and fully qualified high school English teacher and have been tutoring students privately for 25 years.

I have recently relocated to Port Stephens after teaching in a Sydney selective school since 2004. I teach from Years 7 - 12, specialising in HSC Standard, Advanced and Extension English.

My fee includes lesson and text preparation and reading and marking my student's work prior to the lesson. I include extensive comments and feedback goals.

For Sydney based students I am still available for lessons via Skype.

I am available weekday afternoons, evenings and during the day for senior students with free periods.

I only teach from my home in Shoal Bay.

This year I have taught students from Mereweather High, Tomaree High, St. Philip's, Irrawang High and Callaghan College.

Over the last few years I have tutored students from the following Sydney schools - Brigidine St Ives, Cromer, Davidson, Freshwater, Manly Selective, Mosman, Newtown High School of the Performing Arts, Northern Beaches Christian College, Killarney, Killara, Knox, North Sydney Boys, Oxford Falls Grammar, Pittwater House, Pymble Ladies College, Shore, St. Augustine's College, St. Luke's College, Sydney Grammar and Wenona.

I am familiar with all aspects of the NSW English Curriculum and all HSC English modules and papers. I am an English specialist and teach only English.

Please refer to student reviews as my ethos, method and results remain outstanding.



I have extensive experience as a High School English teacher in the UK, South Africa,
Kuwait and Australia.

I have been teaching in a range of high schools for 23 years. I am an enthusiastic and

My thorough knowledge of the NSW curriculum and my rapport with students has
always allowed for quick improvement and attainment of high marks.

Tutor in Nelson Bay


English (Secondary)

"I had two lessons a week with Ruth from before my HSC trials until my exams. I was overwhelmed by my workload with Extension and Advanced English and had lost my ability to write well under pressure as I felt I had too much to say and didn't know how to express my ideas concisely and clearly. Ruth helped me straight away and after just a few lessons I had outstanding trial results in English. She taught me how to plan essays and gather my ideas according to the requirements of the syllabus and rubric. What seemed so overwhelming and impossible then became quite straightforward. We also went over some of the details from my texts and Ruth gave me new ideas and filled in gaps left by my teachers. Her knowledge is extensive and she always had really interesting ideas about the texts. I found her lessons really stimulating and I learned new things each time. I worked very hard with Ruth and she had high expectations of me. I learned to write quickly under pressure and how to gather key ideas and quotes and then adapt them according to the question in the exam. She always had extra time for me and marked my work and returned it to me and spoke on the phone when I was really struggling. I achieved Band 6 for both Extension and Advanced and could never have done this without the guidance of such a good teacher. Ruth was always able to explain things in a way which made sense to me and then gave me room for my own ideas and perspectives. She is an awesome teacher and I highly recommend her, my only regret is that I didn't have her from the beginning of Year 11."
