About Ruth

Currently, I am a MAT student at Southern Oregon University. I am focusing on Early Childhood and Elementary Education with an ESOL endorsement. My background is in TEFL and Teaching English as a Second Language to young learners in the Czech Republic. My passion is teaching! I look forward to graduating June 17, 2017. It has been a great two years with my terrific 2-year cohort in the Master of Arts in Teaching program!

Philosophy:

The theory of multiple intelligence when applied to English ESOL, English for Speakers of Other Languages is an ideal approach to language learning. It is possible to “pose problems that are or will be relevant to the students.” Incorporating different forms of interactive activities into the ESOL class is essential. It is also important for the instructor to determine how different students acquire knowledge. Using problem-solving activities and cognitive games students use a higher brain function. It teaches them “how to learn.” Students should actively read, write and talk about local events and activities that affect their daily lives.

I've been teaching in a 4th grade math classroom the past year 2016/2017.

I've taught as a TEFL teacher for 8 years abroad in the Czech Republic. I have a TEFL certificate and an Oregon Teaching License.

I am a certified K-6 teacher in the State of Oregon. I enjoy teaching and I care about kids. I have a great deal of empathy for struggling learners as I myself am a lifelong learner.


For an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and caring tutor contact me--I have 8 years of experience teaching abroad.

I can help with multiple subjects such as English, reading, writing, math and science and geography.
