About Ricardo


Bio

My style of teaching is simple. I have students explain topics and problems to me. When checking work, I allow students to explain their answers so they rely on themselves first and me second. This lets them discover their errors and figure out what they really need. I also make sure to give strategies for memory, time management, and studying.

My style of teaching is simple. I have students explain topics and problems to me. When checking work, I allow students to explain their answers so they rely on themselves first and me second. This lets them discover their errors and figure out what they really need. I also make sure to give strategies for memory, time management, and studying.

I tutor everything from Elementary Ed. to Advanced Calculus. I also teach the SAT and AP Prep, and focus on concepts, and test strategies. My experience ranges from teaching Kindergarten, all the way to High School, and tutoring from elementary age all the way to college.

In college, I quickly learned that success could not be gained by passively listening to lectures in class. As a result, I took a lot of online courses and learned topics on my own. My success was due to academic independence and I try to impart this independence onto my students.

Public Speaking

I speak to crowds in different venues. I was a student ambassador for a year and had to speak in front of 40-150 students at many times, and on many topics (from studying, to college transition, and a few others). Speeches were improvised many times, and also prepared just as many times. I also represented my college and had to speak in front of crowds professors and even some politicians for small stints. All speaking related courses in college I've received an A or B+.

Patient and thorough, relates well to teenagers

Ricardo is a patient and thorough teacher. He has helped our daughter understand math concepts that she was struggling with, and has helped build her confidence. Her grades have improved noticeably. We highly recommend him.

Ian, 11 lessons with Ricardo

Raised SAT Math Score 90 Points!

I highly recommend Ricardo F. My 17 year old son had just 4 weekly tutoring sessions with Ricardo for the SAT math section, and significantly raised his score. Ricardo was able to quickly assess my son's weaknesses and then focused practice problems on those areas. Ricardo is professional, super easy going, patient and an all around nice guy in addition to being a great teacher. Ricardo's experience with high school students allows him to explain concepts in a way that made it easy for my son to quickly absorb the material he needed to learn. We found out today that my son was accepted early decision to his first choice college. Thanks Ricardo!

Awesome

Ricardo was wonderful. He tutored my son for SAT's. Prior to him, my son tutored with one of those tutoring centers that are extremely expensive. Was not satisfied with the results so decided to look for a tutor on WyzAnt. Ricardo was our savior. My son's score improved by 280 points in just 4 weeks of tutoring. I highly recommend him.

You will pass with Ricardo!!

I worked with Ricardo for six weeks after failing the praxis several times. He has an incredible knowledge in math and can break down and explain any concept or problem you don't understand. I am NOT a good test taker and I passed with a 153. With Ricardo's help I increased my score by 20 points!!! He is flexible with scheduling and has your best interest in mind. If I can pass, anybody can. You will pass with Ricardo!!!!!!
