About Rick

Hello Parents and Students,

I have been a substitute teacher and tutor, with many districts in Ulster County, for high school as well as middle school. I enjoy the natural ecology of the region, and also the history of settlement in the Hudson Valley, and have been involved in living history groups in the area.
As an educator I have taught in many hands-on programs throughout the northeast, including Clearwater, Mohonk Preserve, Ashokan Outdoor Center and Catskill Outback Adventures.
My approach to tutoring is student centered. As a tutor my goal is as a facilitator that helps the student to find understanding of the subject, not mere knowledge of it.

We work together first with the required materials, learning strategies to uncover the key points within.In addition we look outside the class materials to diversify our perspective, and create better understanding of the subject. I employ various strategies in studying for tests, and attempt to uncover the best learning mode for each student, so that parents may be able to assist their child more efficiently.I have worked with challenged students both in and out of the classroom.

I approach each student with an open mind, and endeavor to assist each student to maximize their potential.

Please contact me to find out how I can help you or your child in the learning process.

Thanks!

Rick V.
