MOTIVATING!

Before I came to Canada and was a student in Ruth’s class, I was so shy. I wasn’t confident with speaking English at all. But Ruth was very kind and friendly, and she encouraged and helped me all the time. Then I opened up and started talking to everyone!

Miss Ruth

HELPFUL!

Ruth is a patient teacher. She really takes the time to explain things. If a student in the class didn’t understand, she would try different ways to help them get the idea, using her words, pictures, or online tools. She enjoys teaching and really wants her students to learn.

FUN!

I didn’t realize learning English, especially grammar, could be so much fun. In Ruth’s class, we didn’t just follow the textbooks. We played lots of interactive games, and Ruth also likes to laugh a lot and chat with the students. I looked forward to her classes.
