BEd (Hons) with QTS in English Literature with Education 

My Story

Following my graduation from Cambridge University where I specialised in English Literature with Education, I went on to teach a wide range of subjects in various primary schools, both in the state and independent sector. I have also been Head of Year in a number of different year groups.
As the end of my maternity leave was timed somewhat imperfectly with the start of the pandemic, I found myself in an interesting situation! Never one to shy away from a challenge, I used this as an opportunity to set up Online Primary Tuition. Since then, I have helped children to obtain academic scholarships and secure places in a number of top independent and grammar schools across Hertfordshire and London, namely UCS, Haberdashers’ Schools, Haileybury, King’s College School, St Albans and Dame Alice Owens to name but a few.


I am a highly qualified and experienced teacher with vast experience of the 7+, 8+ and 11+ entry requirements. I tutor children worldwide to prepare them for the ISEB Pre-Test and for UK school entrance exams. I also tutor children who may just need a little confidence boost or simply to fill in gaps in their learning. 

At Online Primary Tuition, our lessons can be taught on a one-to-one basis, in pairs or with small groups of children. Subjects taught are generally English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non Verbal Reasoning, however as I am an experienced, qualified primary school teacher, I can teach a wide variety of subjects. Extra services such as marking past papers, intensive revision courses and mock interviews are also offered.

Tutoring Approach

At Online Primary Tuition, our lessons are based online only and my Enhanced DBS certificate is registered on the Update Service. I am also trained in Safeguarding and take every opportunity to keep my skills up to date. I will work closely with you to focus on your child’s specific targets. This will in turn ensure that they excel academically and develop a fearless attitude towards learning. By tailoring our lessons to students’ individual needs and focusing on positive language, I have been able to build great relationships with my students over the years, which has in turn led to amazing results.

My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed her lessons with Ria. She plans varied and challenging lessons and as a result my daughter attends her virtual classes happily. She went into her SATs confident and prepared thanks to Ria's teaching.

Ria has been extraordinary!
With all her patience, planning and experience every child is bound to succeed.
Many Thanks for helping us with 7+ prep.

We count ourselves the luckiest people in the world because we got to know Mrs Ria Berry. Our son received offer from Highgate and Habs schools with her help in 2023.

Ria has been tutoring my son in the run-up to the 11+ exams for the last couple of months.  Initial focus was maths but she is now also helping with Verbal/Non-Verbal Reasoning and English.  Ria is thoroughly organised, professional and very adept at running sessions with youngsters over Zoom.  She's also clearly experienced as a teacher and good at communicating with kids.  Highly recommended.

Ria was been a wonderful tutor for our son. It's always a challenge to get him to sit down and focus on work, but he's always keen to do Ria's lessons. Her lessons and fun, but also carefully structured and focused on the the areas where my son has needed to improve. Highly recommended.

Ria is helpful, resourceful and very patient. My kid loves her lessons and as a parent, I know my kid’s strength and weaknesses after her tutorials as well. I can see my kid improvement academically after her class.
