About Rui

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.

Expert in chemistry — 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 ...
