About Rui

I am currently working in a neuroscience laboratory at Cornell Medical School.
Before, I was a Ph.D. student at Loyola University Chicago, Major in Chemistry and Biochemistry, where I began my work in medical research. At the same time, I was a TA for lecture courses in general chemistry and biochemistry, and for a chemistry lab course for nursing students. During summer I also taught courses in general chemistry and an organic chemistry.

I believe that text books are not the ideal or most effective way for students to acquire new knowledge, but that knowledge is best transferred from one person to another. I wholeheartedly believe that personal interactions are one of the most important factors for successful education.

I have an easy-going and approachable personality, but at the same time I am very responsible. I easily comprehend when students share with me what is difficult for them to learn and what they struggle with, and I share with them my own learning strategies and experiences. I aim to make interactions with my students as easy, comfortable and productive as possible.

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.
