1) writing, reading
2) Spanish at all levels
3) American/ Western literature
4) U.S. history
5) college prep (the SAT and ACT in the English, Reading, Writing & Language, and Essay sections)

Hi, I'm Alrick!

About me:
When I'm not teaching, I love being on the other end of the learning process: reading, attending conferences, taking classes, and a long etc. I also love the outdoors, and often escape from the bustle of city life to hike, camp, bike and fish.

I've helped thousands of students to understand their subject. In the spirit of complete honesty, I don't take on all students who contact me. I first speak with them (or with a parent, if the student is minor) in order to be as confident as possible that I'm able to offer them the highest quality help possible. If I sense I'm not the best person to help them, I'll say so. I don't want to risk my reputation, and I certainly don't want them to receive anything less than the best help available. In those cases I'll happily recommend fellow Wyzant tutors. As my ratings, tutoring hours, and student numbers make clear, my commitment to my students' quality of instruction and progress is my first priority.

Please contact me with any questions. We can chat via Wyzant messenger or, if you prefer, by phone, text or email.

I look forward to hearing from you!,
Alrick

Very helpful tutor!

We are more than happy with the tutoring service provided by Alrick. My Freshman son really enjoys working with Alrick. He is very communicative, understanding, kind, and knowledgable. He knows how to keep my son engaged, and is exactly what we needed! We highly recommend Adam for your tutoring needs. Thank you, Adam!

Marissa, 2 lessons with Alrick

Extremely knowledgable and extremely patient.

Alrick brought me insight on how to make things clearer and stay on a linear path with my story. He brought up idea that I never even realized and really helped me see the writing structure. Amazing teacher and tutor.

Parker, 1 lesson with Alrick

Fantastic tutor/ knowledgable and friendly

Alrick is always prepared and ready to challenge me with every lesson we have. Since we first started working together, my comprehension of Spanish has gone to a new level. Sentence structure, pronunciation, past/present/future verbs and much more are things he has helped me understand. I would recommend him to anybody looking to improve their Spanish.

Cesar, 47 lessons with Alrick

Text comprehension and reading

In the time working with Alrick, and I have learned and improved my reading and comprehension of texts, he is a person very focused on his work, he is always striving so that I understand everything we study, he also makes a study plan focused on my weaknesses which has helped me a lot to improve my skills.

Carlos , 10 lessons with Alrick

Alrick

Rick helped me get more comfortable with Reading and Writing SATs by helping me go over a practice SAT test that he gave me. Although we did not go over all the questions, he helped me understand the questions that I had the hardest times with.

Adam, 33 lessons with Alrick

Great as always!

Alrick is always patient and very helpful with my college level Spanish work. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a tutor in Spanish.

Riley, 25 lessons with Alrick

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My daughter was a bit apprehensive about being tutored by a male, but she said he’s so patient and looking forward to the next session! She already realized her mistake with point of view!

Alejandra, 1 lesson with Alrick

An Excellent tutor, Mr. Alrick.

Mr. Alrick helped me improve my writing skills. My essay improved greatly after Mr.Alrick pointed out different writing elements that would make my essay better. He was patient and guided me to think clearly and specifically for a top-quality essay. He is a very thorough and highly skillful tutor. Thanks, Josh.S

Josh, 1 lesson with Alrick

Knowledgeable tutor

My son felt very happy with the help he gets from Rick to get start for his history thesis and want to schedule more lessons during the course of his thesis.
