About Rick

I have fourteen years experience teaching all math courses from 7th grade Pre-Algebra up to Calculus (honors, regular, and remedial). I have taught courses using a traditional approach, an integrated approach, an interactive approach, and an internationally-minded approach. I have been trained to teach International Baccalaureate Maths, and have two years of experience teaching the course. Teaching is my life-long profession, and I have a passion for helping students achieve to the best of their abilities to help give them the best preparation for life after schooling.

I also have numerous years of experience preparing students for high-stakes tests. In just about all of my fourteen years of teaching I was involved with preparing students for state required tests, and am currently teaching Geometry which requires in-depth knowledge of the PARCC assessments. I have also tutored students for both the SAT and ACT tests. For two years I was an instructor with Kaplan Learning Center, and though the structure of the SAT has changed this past year, a lot of the core strategies and areas of knowledge have not. I also have experience with preparing students for the IB Maths Exams. My track record speaks for itself, as almost every year I have taught students taking state and other high-stakes assessments, the scores of these students improved from the scores of the previous year’s class.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I have taught juniors in PreCalculus the past 8 years, and part of the curriculum involves preparing them to take both the SAT and ACT tests.

Algebra 1

I am certified to teach all secondary mathematics. I have been teaching high school math for 14 years. I passed the test you have given. I have taught courses using a traditional approach, an integrated approach, an interactive approach, and an internationally-minded approach.

Algebra 2

I have taught Geometry, Algebra2, and PreCalculus for 14 years. So I understand the material they are coming in with, and what they are expected to know to lead into the following school year.

Calculus

I have taught Calculus1 for 2 years, and have taught PreCalculus the past 8 years. At the end of the PreCalculus curriculum, a month is spent working on limits, continuity, and derivatives in preparation for Calculus1.

Elementary Math

I am certified in secondary math; however, I have worked with elementary students and have even taught PreK for a couple of years. So I understand the entire spectrum of mathematics curriculum for ages 4-18.

Geometry

I am certified to teach all secondary mathematics. I have taught Honors Geometry the past 5 years, and have 14 years of experience teaching all levels of secondary mathematics.

Microsoft Excel

I have taught Computer Applications for 5 years, so I have a basic foundation knowledge of Microsoft Excel at a high school level.

Prealgebra

I am certified to teach all secondary mathematics. I have been teaching high school math for 14 years.

Precalculus

I have taught juniors in PreCalculus the past 8 years. I am well-qualified in terms of the course material and expected mastery.

PSAT

I have taught juniors in PreCalculus the past 8 years, and part of the curriculum involves preparing them to take both the SAT and ACT tests. I have also taught with Kaplan SAT Prep.

SAT Math

I have taught juniors in PreCalculus the past 8 years, and part of the curriculum involves preparing them to take both the SAT and ACT tests. I have also taught with Kaplan SAT Prep.

Trigonometry

I have taught juniors in PreCalculus the past 8 years. Roughly half of the PreCalculus curriculum is focused on Trigonometry, so I have a deep understanding of what material is covered and the level of mastery required to succeed.
