Background Check Status for Ric D.

Ric D. passed a background check on 8/17/13. The check was ordered by Ric through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.

I am a certified teacher in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Missouri, and Kentucky. I also have valid background checks.

I am skilled and experienced in teaching and tutoring all elementary and middle school subjects. I have a special passion for math, and have specific experience teaching and tutoring "Everyday Math" and "Go Math" programs.

I am also experienced at using Common Core Standards. As an elementary educator, I am also experienced at teaching reading, writing, science, social studies, study skills, health, and ESL. I have worked with every type of student, including students with disabilities (physical and learning) and English as a Second Language students.

I would like to help your child succeed! We would meet at your home (with you present) or in a public place (library, coffee shop, etc.).

Currently, I am open to any hour, any day. Since the state took a LONG time in issuing my certificate, I missed out on opportunities to apply for teaching jobs here in PA. If I am able to get a contracted teaching job, my availability will change to evenings and weekends.

Elementary (K-6th)

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from the University of Missouri. I hold valid teaching certifications in K-6 in Arizona, Missouri, and Kentucky. I am waiting to be granted the certificate from Pennsylvania. Also, I have taught Elementary and Middle School for 17 years, in all subjects and at every grade level from K-8.


I began playing trumpet 28 years ago as a 6th grader. A few years later, I was accepted into the Missouri Youth Symphony. I continued to play through high school. I went to the University of Missouri, on a trumpet scholarship, and continued to play in university ensembles throughout my college career. Also, I have given trumpet lessons to students in the past.
