About Rick

I'm originally from a small town in Indiana, but I have lived on Chicago's Northwest side for 13 years. I have a degree in Secondary Social Studies Education from Tri-State University. I have recently been a Special Education Classroom Assistant for Chicago Public Schools, where I worked with 3-8th grade students in all subjects. I love to share my knowledge of all subjects, especially History and Government.


I love to read, and share that with my students. I am careful to follow lexile ratings for both fiction and non-fiction titles. I believe that reading is important to all subject areas throughout school, and into the child's future. I teach note taking, organization, comprehension, grammar rules, close reading strategies, and fluency.

I have a great deal of information to pass on to my elementary students. I have taught fractions, decimals, probability, operations, graphing, pre-algebra, multiplication, division, square roots. In spelling, I challenge my students to not only know how to spell the word, but how to analyze the root, prefix, suffix, definitions, and uses of the word.

I have a wealth of knowledge in all areas of history, government, economics, and geography. I am very focused on connecting historical events to the present day to ensure interest by the student.

Please feel free to contact me to set up meeting to discuss your educational goals!
