About Rui

Having learned English for years myself, I found that the teacher-centered method employed in China is very ineffective. Therefore, I decided to find a way to improve the situation by studying abroad. After two years’ of study, I earned my Master’s degree in Teaching English as a Second Language at the Pennsylvania State University. And I have become a creative, reflective and passionate English teacher who is always in search of better ways to enrich students’ lives through teaching. My ultimate goal as an ESL teacher is to help students realize their autonomy as life-long learners. In order to achieve this goal, I strive to focus on students’ individuality, to create an environment that is positive, authentic, communicative, and challenging, as well as to make them be aware of the strong tie between the knowledge learnt in classroom and the real world.
I acquire extensive knowledge of the English language and language teaching methodologies. I have been a tutor for years. I taught English grammar, pronunciation and academic writing to students who came from different contexts and have various levels of English proficiency. By being a patient listener, I would know where my students' problems lie so that I can help them more effectively. I would always come up with a tailored plan according to my students' strengths, weaknesses, and personal learning styles.
I'm very familiar with the academic lives both in American high schools and universities. I know how to help my students achieve their successes in their academic lives. Having taken many different kinds of test myself such as TOEFL and GRE, I'm also very good at test preparation. As a matter of fact, students' test scores can be improved by practice of test taking skills.
I enjoy working with different people and am open to different opinions and would think from different perspectives. I believe that my teaching expertise and dedication for language teaching would help you become a better language learner.
I really look forward to hearing from you and walking together with you towards your goal.
