About Ruth

I am a retired teacher certified in ESL, English and German. In addition to teaching, I privately tutor adults and young adult students including middle schoolers. In the past, I started a community ESL program in Itasca, IL.

My teaching experience includes 17 years teaching high school and over 12 years teaching ESL to adults.

I am very dedicated to my students and will "go the extra mile" to help them learn.

I live in Elk Grove Village, IL, and am willing to drive up to 10 miles to tutor.
