Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Hello, My name is Ruth. 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.

Ruth is a very funny and interesting girl. Had a lot of fun speaking with her in Mandarin. She gave me a lot of pointers but didn't overwhelm me. My confidence in my speaking and listening skills is already higher. Can't wait 'til my next session.

She is awesome. Very kind and patient in explaining and repeating lessons as much as needed. I took my first class and want to commit for a 10-class course work. Looking forward.

Ruth is very enthusiastic and provides insightful tips during our lessons. She makes lessons enjoyable and meaningful and is easy to interact with. She is able to work with me using traditional Chinese characters which is so helpful!

I have had multiple lessons with Ruth and she is the best Chinese tutor I have had. I have used several other Chinese tutors and Ruth is the only one that has a good plan going into each lesson and she is very patient with you. I will be continuing my lessons with her and she will definitely help you to improve your Chinese.
