About Ruth

Hello everyone! My goal is to help you in a fun and applicable way. I am flexible and negotiable with days and times. I have been a School Nurse for 13 years and I interact with students and kids daily. In the past summers I have done mission trips where I taught English to children, I speak Chinese, English and Spanish. I am very organized and I have a natural American accent.
I have strong grammar, reading, spelling skills, and I can be a dependable proofreader. My preferred method if location is a factor would be online tutoring through SKYPE. It has been a great way for me as a student myself so I hope you would consider this.
Hola! Me encantaría ayudarlos con inglés ya que hablo español. Podemos quedar en persona u online por skype si viven en otro lugar. Gracias por leer.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

I am Chinese- American, I took Chinese school for many years and finished all levels. I have translated both English to Chinese speaking and Chinese to English speaking. I went to China for medical missions and to teach English these past 2 summers.

ESL/ESOL

I taught ESL in Asia for the past summers. I am Chinese-American, so I understand what it means to learn English as a foreign language.

I focus on speaking and listening to improve the language.

General Music

When I was in high school I joined orchestra for 2 years. I started playing piano when I was 9 and still am an amateur player. I am not a credentialed teacher but I can teach children or adults at a basic level so that they will enjoy music. It's important to enjoy it before getting serious with it.

Grammar

I was born in the United States, and have studied in public school for all my education. I am work very well with grammar and spelling.

Nursing

I have been a registered nurse for 12 years. I received my BSN and MSN from San Jose State University. I enjoyed it very much and I hope I can also help you!

Piano

I had a great piano teacher and was very motivated to practice many hours a day. I am good at elementary/basic music theory. I still love to play piano for leisure even though I'm working. I played a concert in 2007.

Proofreading

Students, If you need my help with proofreading essays I can be of help to you. I have written many papers during my years of education, and had two articles published in the Journal of School Nursing. I hope I am able to help you with grammar.

Reading

I am an ABC (American Born Chinese), born in San Francisco. I went to public school K through 12th grade, and I have my Master's degree in School Nursing. I have a native (American) accent and I am good with writing, grammar, and reading.

Writing

I can help with writing assignments for homework or proofreading essays. I have written many papers during my years of education, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to write and submit research articles for my degree. Two articles were published in the Journal of School Nursing. I hope I am able to help you with what I know.
