Bio

I am currently studying and working in the Brain and Mind Institution at Weill 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.

I am currently studying and working in the Brain and Mind Institution at Weill 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 believe, teaching is not just a simple material transfer, if so, one probably could pick things up on Youtube. The material, end of the day, you will forget them, anyways. I sometimes forget things. what really matters; after I teach you for a while, I hope to reach two goals: 1) you should love that subject, and 2) you should be confident that you will learn more on that subject beyond what I could teach. If I am able to give you these two things, the sessions are successful, for both of us. If you don't, I consider that is a failure to me, does not matter what facts you have memorized, and what grade you got.

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.

1) Obtained the chemistry Bachelor degree in one of the top university in China, went through the most competitive period. I could help you how to fight through the exam. 2) Own the Ph.D in chemistry and biochemistry in a little over 4 years. During the graduate school, I have taught biochemistry, general chemistry courses. TA-ed organic chemistry, nursing biochemistry laboratory. I could tell you what your teacher expect you to learn/to know/to understand, help you Ace you exam big time. 3) Tutored more than 146 students on chemistry subject to date, went through 10+ different text book (not that it is really matters, as the material down the road are pretty much the same). This experience really help me to understand what you suffer with, how to help you get through these hurdles. 4) Studying and working at Weill Cornell Medical School currently offered me more chance to know how does the medical school selects the students and what are the really important factors for getting to the dream medical school/graduate school. *****I am easy going, you might not care when you select a tutor at this point. But I believe a little kind, warm and nice personality goes a long way. :)

Patient and Understanding Tutor!

I contacted Rui when I needed some last minute sessions before my organic chemistry 2 final. She was great! Very patient with me, never getting frustrated no matter how many times I needed the same thing explained. She was also familiar with my professor's exam style and was able to give study tips based on that. We went through several practice questions and she's very good at prompting you to figure it out rather than just giving the answer. Highly recommend!

Great Organic Chemistry tutor

Rui summarized 3 major types of reaction (creating a c-c bond, oxidation, and reduction). This helped my son with the retro-synthesis question he needed help with.

Janice, 1 lesson with Rui

Extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and patient

Rui has helped me understand otherwise complex topics for General Chemistry 2. She is very organized and detailed with her explanations and makes sure that I truly understand each and every question.

Michelle, 12 lessons with Rui

Knowledgeable Tutor

Rui is a great teacher. She taught me organic chemistry and I learned a lot in a short amount of time. Rui is very patient and makes sure students fully understand the subject. She also gives some practice problems throughout the session which really help.

Lena, 24 lessons with Rui

A great tutor. Knowledgeable and helpful

Rui has an approach to teaching concepts of ORGO that resonated with me. She reviewed material in thoroughly and patiently, and addressed specific concepts that I was struggling with prior to working with her. I now have a better understanding of them and have scheduled additional sessions with her. She has been a great support and I have really appreciated her help.

Yosef, 3 lessons with Rui

Very knowledgeable

Very knowledgeable and personable tutor who explains concepts clearly. Very easy to work with and able to teach concepts efficiently. Really enjoyed working with her.

Irene, 1 lesson with Rui

Truly Outstanding Teacher!

Rui is such a great teacher. I took her for my Organic Chemistry Summer Course and she was amazing. She thoroughly explains the concepts and tests you as she explains to make sure you actually understand everything that's going on. Honestly the best tutor you'll find to teach you the dreaded Organic Chemistry. She's honestly the best, no other way to say it.

Ahmad , 6 lessons with Rui

Very Patient and Super Helpful

It was a review for my Organic Chemistry exam. She was very patient and super helpful. I learned more in two hours than all year with my current teacher.

Riley, 10 lessons with Rui

Expert Organic Chemistry Tutor

Very impressed on her knowledge and expertise in Organic Chemistry........she didn't even need the book! Would defiantly use her again....I recommend her to anyone struggling with organic chemistry.
