About Ruth

I have more than 30 years of experience in teaching am an award winning Instructor. I was honored as the Lane Community College (LCC) Instructor of the Year in 1996 and since then have twice been selected as LCC’s outstanding instructor. In addition, I have been listed more than eight times in the publication Who's Who in American Teachers and featured more than seven times in Who’s Who in Science and Engineering. I am currently an Instructor at the University of Oregon and the Director of the College of Education's Substance Abuse Prevention Program.

I enjoy working with students of all ages and making learning practical and fun. Students of all ages are able to learn from me because I like to put all subjects into language that they can comprehend and to which they can relate.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADHD

1. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and understand the needs of individuals with ADD/ADHD.

2. I am a Licensed Psychologist and understand that ADD/ADHD individuals struggle with frustration when you do not simplify instructions or do not help them with stress management skills as well as academics.

3. I have patience and understand how to make tutoring sessions work with those who have difficulty with attention and concentration.

4. I know how to teach in many different modalities, and use what works best for each student and adjust their study skills accordingly.

Ruth was wonderful in every way. My brother has special needs and she was extremely supportive and kind towards him. Excellent session. I can't recommend her highly enough. The only thing is that it's a long way for him to travel but that's a problem on our end because we live an hour away from Eugene. If we lived in Eugene we'd use her every day.
