Ruth Devlin

Study Skills Tutor

Having taught in schools, colleges and universities for some years, I am very aware of the barriers many students have had to overcome before being accepted on their courses. I believe everyone has the right to participate, learn, enjoy and achieve, consequently, I am keen for teaching to meet students’ expressed and observed needs. I, therefore, aim to provide enjoyable, well-focused learning experiences that maximise students’ strengths. In this way, they gain the confidence and skills to make tasks and study manageable and to experience success. I have particular expertise in working with speakers of English as an Additional Language and am fluent in several European languages.
