About Rikki

My goal is to encourage students to take ownership and pride in their learning and to be prepared for the world waiting for them. I am a lifelong learner, positive and passionate. I draw from a range of resources to achieve a balance of skill and concept practice. I have a knack for presenting material in way students easily understand. If my approach isn't working I will modify my style to best fit the student. I take pride in watching the students I tutor grow and gain confidence where they may not have before.

I have been afforded the opportunity to learn by first-hand experience how to adjust lessons and teaching style to the varied learning styles and levels of my students. In my own classroom I will have a variety of assignments happening simultaneously so that each student is working at their own level, and getting the most out of their educational experience. I listen to what interests my students so that I can engage them in a way that interests them and they can enjoy learning.

When working one on one I am encouraging and patient. I push students to do their best and know when to encourage them to take a break and work on something else so they can give their challenge a fresh set of eyes when they need it. I teach by inquiry. When students ask me a question I ask them questions right back to help lead them to their own answers. The goal is to teach students metacognition and to become more independent.

I have always had a passion for math, and finding creative ways to explain it to others. I ended up majoring in math in college and graduated with a BA in mathematics. I then went on to teach 5th grade math. Along the way I have successfully tutored math, from elementary students who want to bring up their grade to adults struggling with college level math. You can trust that I will use all my experience, and every resource to help you not only succeed but excel.

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.
