About Ricki

Hello all! My name is Ricki and I can tutor all Sciences and some math courses.

I graduated magna cum laude from Texas A&M University with a BS in Biology in 2010. While I was there, I also minored in Secondary Science Education and obtained my composite certification to teach all sciences grades 8-12. Educating students and cultivating interest in the sciences is my absolute passion!

I am currently teaching Chemistry and advanced Biology at a local high school and have 5 years of previous experience tutoring both one-on-one and in groups. My main concentration is in Science for the older kiddos, but I have tutored math, reading and science for elementary-aged students in the past. Additionally, I have tutored pre-Algebra and Algebra for both high school and college students.

I believe in individualized instruction whenever possible and have never tutored a student the same way yet! Every student is a different person and learns in a different way, whether its visual, auditory, or kinesthetic. I ask students how THEY want/prefer to learn and work from there. I like making science relevant to students' daily lives and prefer to have discussions about science rather than a monotonous session where I just talk at the student for an hour (blah!).

Thank you for taking a look at my profile and I hope to hear from you soon!

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 Science

I currently teach a Science ACT prep course twice a year for my current employer. I have access to prep books and practice tests that help students understand test taking strategies.

Biology

Biology is my greatest area of expertise. I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Texas A&M University.

I currently teach advanced Biology (both IB and AP) at a local area high school and have tutored several students in this subject in the past.

Chemistry

As a current high school Chemistry teacher (both pre-AP and on-level), I have extensive experience communicating this subject in a way that is easy to understand. In a subject that has quite a few abstract concepts, I have spent the past few years of my career developing hands-on activities to make Chemistry more approachable to the average student.

Physics

I am currently an active high school science etcher certified to teach all sciences including Physics.

I have several hours of experience tutoring fundamental Physics to both high school and college students.
