RICA - Reading Instruction Competence Assessment

Tutoring Offered In-Person and Online

Watch our 2-minute Tutoring Info/Help Video for an overview of what to expect in tutoring and how to enroll.

Even if you are a terrific reading teacher, many of the specific terms and concepts appearing on the RICA exam can be quite daunting. You will be required to understand a number of specific teaching and assessment techniques, ways of analyzing and interpreting student data, and will need to be able to use this knowledge within the scope of a variety of multiple choice and constructed response questions (including an in-depth case study). With private tutoring, you'll learn the subject matter and test strategies you need for success.

Whether you want to focus on a specific area, such as constructed responses, or you wish to review for the entire RICA to give yourself the best chance of passing, Private RICA Tutoring is a great choice. 

After working through an initial practice test with you and performing an advanced diagnostic, your tutor will create a study program designed to meet your unique needs.  You'll review the subject matter areas that will benefit you most, and as you master the core knowledge required to pass, your tutor will coach you through RICA Practice Tests in which you’ll learn proven techniques for approaching each question type you are most likely to encounter.

We offer in-person tutoring sessions held at various convenient locations throughout the state, typically at libraries, coffee shops and other similar locations.  (Sorry, we do not offer in-home tutoring.  All in-person sessions are held at public locations.)

If you are looking for the unparalleled results students achieve with private tutoring, but prefer to receive help from the convenience of your own home or office, we also offer Live Online Tutoring, which has quickly become one of our most popular services.

All our tutors are caring and enthusiastic educators who take pride in helping our clients pass, and all must undergo a rigorous set of evaluations before becoming a Teachers Test Prep tutor, including a full background check, an academic knowledge assessment, and an evaluation of tutoring skills. Only the absolute best tutors make the cut to become Teachers Test Prep tutors. 

We are so confident you will be pleased with your tutoring experience that we offer a Private Tutoring Satisfaction Guarantee.*  If you purchase a tutoring package and are not 100% satisified for any reason after your first tutoring session, we will give you a full refund on all your remaining sessions.
