Homeschool

I have been a certified teacher since 1994. During that time, I have assisted many students with mathematics, reading, and English. I have used homeschooling curricula such as MathUSee, among others to help many students understand and master the intricacies of of a variety of topics. My goal is always to enable students to become independent learners.

Test Preparation

Praxis

Praxis

I passed the Praxis Exam on my first attempt several years ago when I chose teaching as a second career. In addition, I helped my daughter prepare for it just a few years ago, and she also passed on her first attempt. I have helped several people study for and be successful on a variety of standardized tests. I understand and can assist in the implementation of many test taking strategies.

Personable and Inspiring

Rita helped my daughter's self-esteem tremendously. She went from feeling "dumb" about geometry to feeling empowered. Rita told her from the beginning that she could teach her to understand and that's just what she did. Rita is reliable and a caring and thoughtful person. I highly recommend her. 5 stars!!

Kristi, 26 lessons with Rita

Very Patient

We had our first lesson with Rita and she did a great job with my 11 year old son. She was very patient and took the time to explain concepts in multiple ways so that he could understand. We scheduled our next lesson and are looking forward to her aid all summer long. I highly recommend Rita!

Calm and Helpful Tutor

Rita has helped my daughter be willing to try her best . Rita is calm and explains a difficult subject in way my daughter can understand. Rita is very easy to work with and wants the best for your child.

Knowledgeable tutor

Very good tutor, friendly and helpful. I recommend her to anyone needing tutoring. We have only had one tutoring session so far but it is clear she is very good at what she does.

So Happy!!

I can't tell you what it means to me to see my son come home after 1 lesson with a look of hope on his face!! Algebra 2 has been such a struggle. I only wish we had contacted Rita sooner. We tried having a student tutor and even had him going in to school early in the morning to work with his teacher. I'm anxious to see how he progresses for the rest of the year!! Thank you so much!!

Patient and kind

Rita helped my daughter with algebra 1. She has a positive attitude and her goal is to enable your child to be independent without a tutor by teaching them the necessary skills. I highly recommend her.

Sony, 6 lessons with Rita

Great to communicate with but unfortunately not a good fit

Rita responded quickly and an appointment was made. Unfortunately my daughter and Rita agreed a different tutor would be more beneficial for the current precalculus Jesse is working on. Thank you for trying.

Bonnie, 1 lesson with Rita

Wonderful help!

I hired Rita to help me improve my score on the Praxis 2 for elementary math because I went back to school after having two children and it had been quite a while since I had studied these types of problems. Rita was very patient with me, and was always on time. She's very knowledgeable and understanding. She never once made me feel like I was struggling or should have known how to do the math already. I'm happy to report that although my initial score was a 158 (which meant that I had failed, I needed a 164 to pass), after Rita helped me for several weeks my score improved to a 171. I couldn't be happier!! I would highly recommend hiring Rita as your tutor.

Thank you! It was wonderful to work with you.

Outstanding results!

My son was struggling with Algebra 2 with a D grade so I went online and found Rita. We had no idea if this was going to be a "fit" for my son our not. I observed most of the first session as Rita took my son backwards through the processes until they got to the root of his issue. After the first session my son already was making progress by understanding what Rita was teaching him. I am proud to say that his last report card he now has a B in Algebra 2. Thank you Rita!

Easy to understand!

Rita is a very nice woman who is always available when we need her. She is very good at explaining the material in a way that my daughter can understand. If my daughter doesn't understand it the first way she explains it, she explains in a different way that makes more sense. There have been times when I have called her and she has come the same day, even on weekends. Rita has definitely been able to make math more interesting and understandable for my daughter. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help.
