Professional Services


We aim to provide high-quality, professional,  live teaching/tuition services over the internet to every REGISTERED student.   We aim to start the lessons and continue them,  within the times and days allocated to each student.
Our policy is to offer professional services to parents and children or adult learners; to have a friendly, flexible, adaptable approach and to provide well-planned lessons and appropriate multi-sensory resources to aid learning and make it fun!
Continuous Professional Development
We will also be continuing to update our training throughout our career and services to families and settings, and we will keep the public informed of what these are, and when they have taken place. 
Personalised teaching & tuition
´╗┐It is our policy to offer the very best personalised teaching to suit the child's needs,   in consultation with parents/clients.   We can plan and review the progress together and plan the next steps. Personal tuition can be carried out in the child's home, or you may wish to visit us in our own home setting.  All lessons are prepared individually,  with careful time and effort into preparing each individual lesson.
Skype tuition will be carried out professionally, following the programmes/lessons that parents and pupils have chosen.  Skype lessons are live and include activities and games to make learning fun.
Cancellations & Missed Lessons
Parents / students are required to give a notice as soon as possible if your child is sick or cannot attend the lesson for some reason and new arrangements
can be made.  
However,  if no notice is given, then the missed lesson will need to be paid for,  due to the time, effort and loss of income to the tutor.
Likewise,  we will contact parents / student if we cannot make our commitment to tutoring for any reason,  giving notice as soon as possible.
Termination of Services
If parents / students wish to terminate the service,  we ask for a minimum of 2 weeks notice, so that other tutoring arrangements can be made.
Child Protection & Confidences
RUTH has a current DBS and aims to protect the children and families I will be working with.
Our policy is to keep confidences concerning and children and families we will be working with, in order to protect individual's identity and safety. 
All payment for Skype lessons must be made in advance, with payment being deposited into our account before the lessons begin.
Private Tuition students may pay in cash,  or pay directly into our bank account or pay via Paypal.
Cancellations of lessons by the Tutor
If the tutor is sick, or on holiday, or unable to teach a session for any reason, parents will be contacted as soon as possible to re-arrange lessons.
