About Dr. Ruth L

I have a Ph.D. in Psychology with a concentration in Education. I have worked with students
from kindergarten age to graduate level. Two of my major strengths are teaching speaking
and writing, so I am also able to help students with written work, e.g., thesis. I have taught
at the university level and have operated an academic enrichment after school program so
I am comfortable and familiar with all ages.

I especially like teaching EFL. I like getting to know students so I can design lessons that
are interesting and challenging. I especially like the excitement and energy that young children
show and the commitment and focus that advanced students bring to class.

I am EFL certified, have significant teaching experience and have a background in human
development and teaching and learning processes. These areas combine to allow me to
design and provide unique lessons for each student.

I have very strong speaking and writing skills and this also helps me be a strong teacher.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am certified to teach ESL and have worked extensively with college age students related to speaking, writing, conducting research and preparing for internships in positions related to their career goals. I have very strong speaking, writing skills and development of study skills experience.

Reading

Experience teaching reading with pre-school children

Study Skills

I am qualified to teach study skills because of educational background (cognitive and behavioral psychology) and experience working with students and design and delivery of study skills modules for students. I have designed and included many learning activities and modules to improve learning and study skills.

Important topics included are: 1) assessment of student strengths and weaknesses related to studying followed by instruction and practice related 2) learning style, 3) effective listening, 4) note taking (Cornell), 5) reading and particularly textbook reading (SQR3), 6) strategies to improve memory, 7) time management, 7) study environment, and 8) study groups,

Based on initial assessment and work with students, topics may be prioritized and emphasized as appropriate to each student.
