Bio

Hello,
Ever since I started teaching at the college level, I have been passionate in my commitment to three things: maximizing individual student performance, inspiring students’ interest in language, and instilling a sense of self-worth among all students.

I got my bachelor degree in International Communications with a minor in Education at University of Nottingham, UK; then I pursued my master degree in Journalism at Syracuse University, New York. The part-time teaching assistant position...

Hello,
Ever since I started teaching at the college level, I have been passionate in my commitment to three things: maximizing individual student performance, inspiring students’ interest in language, and instilling a sense of self-worth among all students.

I got my bachelor degree in International Communications with a minor in Education at University of Nottingham, UK; then I pursued my master degree in Journalism at Syracuse University, New York. The part-time teaching assistant position at Language Center of Syracuse University made me decide to become a full-time teacher in 2014, and ever since I have taught over 200 students from more than 20 different countries, ranging from age 15-50+:: beginners, experts, extroverted adults, shy children, Japanese salarymen, French lawyers, German CEOs, Harvard university teachers, Indian engineers, South African musicians... but also gifted children, curious housewives and retired teachers.

During the course, I will make a personalized study plan, which would fit to your personal goals, skills or personality. Whether you are learning Chinese for business, for school or for fun, whether you want to work hard or just enjoy a simple conversation, I'll adapt to your needs!

I gained scientific and efficient teaching methods from years of teaching experiences. I practiced my teaching techniques at Beijing Language and Culture University, one of China's most renowned universities for language teaching.

I am from Harbin, and I have an standard Mandarin accent. This is what you need for good pronunciation bases.

Some of the textbooks we may use: New Practical Chinese Reader Short-term Spoken Chinese, Developing Chinese, Experiencing ChineseHSK HSK Standard Course,Business Chinese and301 Conversational Chinese 30.

Great teacher!

Ruth is a very good Chinese teacher. She takes time to explain everything and has a very pleasant way of teaching Chinese to beginners like me!

Ruth is a tutor your child will enjoy using

Ruth has been able to help my daughter with Chinese 1 from the first minute of the first lesson. She is kind and funny. I am surprised how prepared she is to teach Chinese with all the handouts and books my daughter is using. We are so glad to have found this website and Ruth.

Excellent Teacher

Ruth taught me Chinese. Ruth is a skilled and knowledgeable teacher. She corrected my pronunciation in Chinese. Ruth has me speaking Chinese in a short time. I'm really grateful for my time with Ruth.

Excellent Tutor!

Ruth was such an encouraging tutor! Our trial lesson with my daughter got her hired! My daughter learned a new song and really liked how enthusiastic Ruth is while teaching. My daughter also loved the great way she praised her for doing a good job! Can’t wait for more lessons!

Carissa, 3 lessons with Ruth

Skillful and fun tutor

She was very good at adjusting her vocabulary to my level and compiled a list of new words during the session -- a big help. A key skill she showed is listening and asking questions to keep me talking so she could hear and correct the gaps in my language. Overall this was a very good session for my level of ability.

Amazing Chinese Tutor

I have had and continue to have a great experience learning from Ruth. She is patient and explains everything fully when I am confused. She also pushes and challenges me every session, which I really appreciate. I would highly recommend her as a Chinese tutor.
