English (Secondary)

"In Year 9, I began having lessons with Ruth in Sydney, October 2015 with the need to address my essay writing skills and improve my ability to write more concisely, especially under time constraints. It was only after a few lessons that these issues drastically improved and gaps of certain areas in my knowledge of English began to arise. Ruth quickly addressed these issues and taught me how to plan my essays, collate and sort my ideas according to the task, and write more efficiently under time pressure and exam conditions. She immediately fixed the gaps in my knowledge and within 3 months my grades improved drastically, from the mid B range, to the mid-high A range in all assessed English tasks. Ruth’s extensive knowledge of the English curriculum and her ability to succinctly communicate its requirements has allowed me to extend myself and vastly improve each week. Since the beginning of 2016, I have continued weekly lessons with Ruth over Skype which have been working very successfully and have been just as valuable and effective as the previous face-to-face lessons. Ruth has assisted me in establishing an extensive foundation in my skills and knowledge of essay writing, in-depth text analysis, and responses to differing texts in preparation for the HSC courses in Years 11 and 12. When I have finished a task between lessons each week, Ruth efficiently marks, returns, and discusses it with me, providing feedback through email or over the phone. Ruth provides me with new ideas and alternate perspectives on my texts, allowing my writing to develop and constantly improve. I throughly enjoy my lessons every week, and I am looking forward continuing my lessons with Ruth during the HSC. Ruth is an amazing teacher and I highly recommend her to anyone needing help with, or wanting to be extended in English."
