Loyola University Chicago (PhD)
Weill Cornell Medical College (Graduate Coursework)
I am working at a neuroscience laboratory at Cornell medical school.
I was a P.H.D student in Loyola University Chicago; Major in Chemistry and biochemistry. I worked on medical related research, at the same time, I am a TA at school in general chemistry, biochemistry and nursing chemistry lab. I also taught a general chemistry and an organic chemistry class during thru summer time.
I believe, the passage of the knowledge is not from text book to students, but from person to person. I whole-heartedly agree that personal interaction is one of the most important aspects of the education.
I have an easy going personality and put"being responsible" in heart, making myself a very approachable teach/tutor. The students love to share with me what makes them feel difficult to learn, what makes them struggle. I also love to share the learning skills and my own learning experiences with them. The interaction between the students and me are easy, comfortable and productive. I am working at a neuroscience laboratory at Cornell medical school.

Rui is most definitely a master of her subject! She is able to explain all the problems I'm working on without any reference and knows what she's talking about. I feel very comfortable with her, she listens to my ideas and bounces off of how I think when correcting me. After having her explain material and help me with homework problems, my next test grades went up a whole grade! I feel that I am learning in the simplest way because of her help! She's wonderful!
Rui explains everything so well and is extremely helpful! She made a subject I found difficult much easier to grasp and I did great in the course
Rui explained my confusion with my Chemistry pre-lab, my Quantum Explorations questions, and the questions in my practice exam. She explained the areas I was having difficulty with until I fully understood it. Best tutoring session I've ever had.
I'm taking organic chemistry this summer, and the accelerated nature of learning a new chapter of material every other day was really overwhelming. Rui helped by making things more simple and demonstrative of the overall concept! She's very patient when explaining and practicing problems with students.
I understand a lot of things from her.
She is really tutoring very well.
She helps me a lot.
She has good experience.
Rui does such a great job of taking an overwhelming task and breaking it down to something that is understandable. She speaks the language that is organic chemistry. She also has great resources and insight to what you can prepare for the most and resources that can help you prepare even more. Highly recommended!!!
Rui is extremely helpful, super friendly, and very knowledgeable about chemistry. I would recommend her to anyone, and have definitely benefitted from her help!
I've been working with Rui over the past semester with Organic Chemistry - a decision that has paid off tremendously. I feel leaps and bounds more prepared for my exams than my fellow classmates, and I absolutely attribute my high grade in the class to the time I've spent with Rui.
She's an extremely patient tutor, and does a great job of explaining concepts. Most importantly, she keeps things simple, and focuses on the most important aspects to master.
In addition, she is always available to help and is extremely easy to book an appointment with - even at the last minute!
Whether you're a master at chemistry, or completely clueless, Rui can definitely help you! I will certainly continue to work with her for the rest of the semester, as well as the next.
Very patient tutor. Rui has different ways to explain a concept that makes it easier to comprehend. She also responds quickly to emails.
She was great and mastered organic chemistry. She was a fine person and knows her subject!! We tried many different tutors before, finally we met her. We are so lucky to use Wyzant's tutoring service.
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.
