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.

Chinese

She was so patient with my son! She’s got great materials to get him started. We are very pleased with her teaching style. We will definitely continue with her lesson.

Christie, 1 lesson with Ruth

Hardcore Chinese learning!

Ruth is for the student who wants to effectively speak the Chinese language. Very intense tutor. You will need to absorb a lot of phonetics information. China has only a 5% unemployment rate and there is a shortage of Chinese women. So Ruth knowledge is invaluable to anyone wanting to work and socialize in China.

Chris, 5 lessons with Ruth

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Ruth was very careful to make sure I understood at every step and she listened very carefully to my enunciation. She was kind and thoughtful throughout the lesson.

Alyce, 6 lessons with Ruth

Great first lesson

My son thoroughly enjoyed his first lesson with Ruth. Ruth quickly established my son’s level of Mandarin and put forward a plan to accelerate his learning. My son is looking forward to his next lesson.

Pak-Chwee, 38 lessons with Ruth

Great first lesson!

I had a great first lesson with Ruth. She talked very naturally with me and it didn’t even seem like I was trying to hard and I can understand everything that she was saying. I’m very much looking forward to booking another lesson with her!

Brianna, 6 lessons with Ruth

Thorough, patient, excellent teacher!

Ruth is an excellent teacher. She is extremely like-able, had a great presence and cadence in her voice which I find really calming. Learning a new language is extremely overwhelming and intimating and she really made me feel like I could do this!

Patricia, 2 lessons with Ruth

Engaging conversation with Ruth

I had a wonderful lesson of open conversation with Ruth. She was both patient and engaging, and has good judgement as to when I need help, and when I need to just speak. She's a great tutor!

Michael, 25 lessons with Ruth

Rodney, 5 lessons with Ruth

Knowledgable and Patient Tutor

I love how Ruth jumped right in and taught me the tones which is critical in learning the language. I also love how she gave me confidence during the lesson. I also appreciated her goals for getting me to be proficient. Just wonderful! I am so happy to have selected Ruth!
