About Riva

I’m a sophomore at Mount Holyoke College pursuing my degree in mathematics. I have taken classes related to teaching methodology. My experience includes private tutoring and peer tutoring in mathematics for three years, since my junior year of high school. This summer I'm going to be away at Brown University and furthering my teaching abilities.

My personal approach to tutoring is to discuss and assess your proficiency level in the subject, then find a suitable teaching style to meet your needs. As your tutor, I use many examples to help you gain adequate practice. We’ll go through each math problem step by step until you feel comfortable enough to attempt a problem on your own. More importantly, we're going to make you sure get a good grasp on the concepts! I encourage my students to come up with a list of questions they have before each session to help jumpstart the discussion. If you would like some assistance to improve your study skills, I am happy to teach you how to use flashcards and highlight important information. I also have a rudimentary comprehension of Statistics all the way from linear regression to statistical inference.One of my favorite subjects to tutor students in is Statistics! My goal is to make sure every student leaves their session with the feeling that they have made progress towards their academic goals.

I can't wait to help you achieve your learning goals!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2

Study Skills

I have taken a wide variety of classes that called upon different studying techniques such as underlining and outlining important information, recording what the professor is saying, and making proper time to study without distractions to understand the material. I was a paid 'Note-taker' for a fellow student at my college and I had to summarize what was said during a lecture into 1-2 pages. I make sure to get an occasional break in between to refresh the mind and I emphasize on questioning what the student is studying/ writing down to gauge their progress and understanding of the material.

The best stats tutor!

Riva was amazing! After having struggled very much in statistics, I feel as though I have finally found the light at the end of the tunnel. Riva was extremely patient, dedicated, supportive and confident--in me and in the material. All of my questions were answered and I was made to feel as though my progression in stats was genuinely a priority. I have never had a better math tutor and I am very
