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.

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
energetic teacher who has always achieved excellent results across the board.

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

assessment procedures of many schools on the North Shore and Northern Beaches,

English (Secondary)

"When I came to Ruth I was unhappy with my English marks and unsure if I could improve them as I thought I was just more of a social sciences student and would always struggle with English. Ruth was very flexible in fitting me in for weekly lessons as well as some extras during the weeks leading up to trials, other exams and HSC. I definitely felt myself improving throughout the year and after a couple of months I was getting an A average in English and had improved considerably in my weakest areas. Ruth knew all the concepts in great depth and was always able to clearly explain them to me. It was also great having a perspective other than my teacherís, which gave me more ideas to write about in essays. Having lessons with Ruth kept me on track and at typically stressful times I didnít have as much to do because Ruth had already had me make drafts that she corrected and marked with suggestions on where to improve. Despite having a busy year, I looked forward to my weekly lessons with Ruth who was always very supportive and patient with me. Iím certain that without her help I wouldnít have done this well, winding up with a 92 from Advanced English."
