Allenia A, Halesowen, W.M.

I can't say enough good things about Ruth. She works so well with my children. The boys look forward to their learning times with Ruth. Her patience and calm ways are a comfort for me as a mother. I feel that in the time that my children have spent being given private tuition by Ruth has been quality. I intend to have the children continue on with her.

M
Mrs West-Moorland, W.M.

Adam has only just started on his journey with Ruth, but he is loving going and the help Ruth is giving him.

Ruth is a kind and caring lady who listens to the child's needs and helps where needed. Adam loves going to the lessons with Ruth.

Our son loves Mrs Ruth Grigg! She has been teaching him how to spell, read, understand the English language through a lot of activities and a lot of fun and many, many, smiles and laughter!

Our son Ted, is more confident now. He has been learning English, he has laughed, and he just can't wait for Ruth every Saturday!
