About Ricardo

I am an experienced and credentialed teacher.

I am a graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara with more than 10 years of teaching experience in public schools, charter schools and non-public schools. My passion is teaching, especially history, social studies, and government with literature and science a close second. I am a special education teacher by training but have taught all grade levels of student from K-12. I have found that students succeed and raise their grades and master curriculum when multiple Intelligences are marshaled when accessing curriculum. I have had the pleasure of helping my students pass their GED, CAHSEE, and SATs and more importantly develop lifelong learning skills. Utilizing your strengths and practicing will lead to success and better grades. The time to start is now. Call me.

Improve your Grades and master subject and succeed in school and life. You can do it!

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.

American History

History is my passion and I have a degree in History from UCSB. Through studying history we learn about the journey of people throughout time. It is not just dates and facts, rather the story of individuals, both great and small, and how they impacted their time and our lives today. History can be fun if you think of it as a great, adventurous tale that connects all of us.

English

As an experienced special teacher, I have developed skills to help with the most difficult of subjects. I am patient and supportive and can help students build on their strenghts to tackle English. Together we will lift your grades up and create success.

European History

The Greeks, the Romans, the Black Death, the Middle Ages, Napoleon Bonaparte, King George, and a whole cast of characters make up European History. Euopean history is rich in pagentry, color, customs, and a lot of intrigue. It can be fun! Call me and see.

GED

This is the most important subject that I teach because without a GED life is very difficult. This is your stepping stone to a better life and over the years, working with many students who need to pass the GED, I have developed the skills to help you pass also. Call me now - Don't wait.

Government & Politics

I am passionately interested in this subject and would love to pass some of my enthusiasm to you. What seems like a bore can be extremely exciting. So much is happening right now and it is important to understand the processes that are affecting our lives. Bet you never thought of it this way. Let's explore the institutions and mechanisms which channel power in our everyday lives together.

Literature

So what is better than a good book? Have you read Moby Dick? Is it more than the story of a crazed man and a whale? What else are you reading and not finding fun? Do you know how to answer an essay question on a book? Call me and we can take a journey that will give you a lifetime of entertainment. Reading can be fun. Call me and I will help you.

Social Studies

I have passed the single subject proficentcy test of the CSEt in Social Studies. My undergraduate degree had classes in history, political science, sociology, militaryscience and Chicano Studies. Social studies is field that connects the humanities. Social studies utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach which is a strategy I use in tutoring. It keeps the subject interesting for the students.

Special Needs

I have a special education mild to moderate credential from the state of California. I have been teaching special education students for the past 3 years. Prior to that I have tutored and worked with at risk children in group homes. I havve worked with special needs children and adults in Rehab.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary can be a very hard subject but if you learn some shortcuts (strategies) this subject becomes easier to master. Developing a good vocabulary will help you to succeed in all parts of your life. Words are power and you can become powerful. I will help you.

World History

World history is realy the story of the great civilizations of the past. What happened, where did it happen, and why? You will learn these answers and find they are very interesting when you let me help you. I love history and have a degree in history from UCSB. Still love it and still find it exciting. I want to help you learn to love history too.
