About Ruth


Bio

I am an independent trainer in the workplace, teaching individuals as well as small-medium-large employee groups. My work covers a broad range of essential subjects for employee success: verbal and written communication, public speaking, leadership development, coaching, plus Microsoft and Google software apps.

I am an independent trainer in the workplace, teaching individuals as well as small-medium-large employee groups. My work covers a broad range of essential subjects for employee success: verbal and written communication, public speaking, leadership development, coaching, plus Microsoft and Google software apps.

As an educator, I know that each student is unique and therefore the teaching approach needs to match that individual. Whether I am working with employees, high school students or adults returning to the workforce, I customize my approach to lead the individuals to success.

Some of the feedback I have received from students--"very patient," "excellent communication skills," "able to take complex information and break it down into manageable and easily understood concepts," "easy to work with."

And, if you're looking to reduce the stress in your life and improve your flexibility, I am also a certified yoga instructor!

Can't Say Enough Good Things

I was looking for a tutor that could specifically teach me all the "ins and outs" of Styles in Word as well as someone that could help me customize templates within Word for my company's needs. Ruth went above and beyond. Not only did she help me with the Styles questions and issues I was having before I hired her (that I had watched countless videos on the internet trying to figure out with no real solution), but she was able to help me tackle other Word issues I would come across between our classes. There wasn't anything that she did not have a solution for. I will DEFINITELY be reaching out to Ruth again for any other Word/PowerPoint or Excel needs!

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Ruth is a great public speaking coach! She is very kind and patient. She made me more confident and comfortable public speaking in a classroom setting. We practiced my presentation many times together, and I did not feel anxious or nervous when it was time to do the real thing. I'm looking forward to working with her again in the future!

A very good listener, articulate, pleasant, and responsive mentor A Plus rating

Ruth worked with me on MS Outlook to set-up different tasks. I found the Zoom program more effective than Wyzant's learning platform. I would not hesitate to utilize Ruth's mentoring services to learn any Microsoft software application. Mark K., Ph.D.

Ruth is an outstanding tutor. She was able to help me work comfortably in a complex Microsoft word document. I’m looking forward to my next learning session with Ruth.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I didn’t know that much about Excel and I was very nervous about an interview. She made me feel more comfortable and she was also available to help me on a Sunday afternoon on a short notice!

Helpful and professional

Ruth provided me with the opportunity to pick the topics I thought would be most useful. She covered various formatting functions with me that I will be able to implement immediately.

Wish I found Ruth earlier!

Ruth gets results! I was struggling with the presentation demands and major anxiety 4 months into my new role and reached out to Ruth here in a panic. Our work together has already yielded results and I’m looking forward to more sessions, a boost in my confidence and mastering my new role!
