"Hello, My name is Ricky from Fresno, California and I am a recent graduate of University of California Santa Barbara class of 2018. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and want to go to grad school in 2020.

Most of the classes I adored were in psychology not only because I was very interested in the subject and still am, but because individuals with a psychology background are privy to the different ways students learn, behave, and retain information. Richard Mayer - a renowned Educational Psychology professor at UCSB taught a class that gives me some basis as to how education and psychology inform one another. Taking a page from Finnish education, I assess a students strenghts and weaknesses and help them in more fundamental areas that need to be improved. I also attempt to be engaging and encouraging when I see a student needs it and and when they work hard.

I am an ardent Chess player and I started when i was in elementary school. It is a huge passion of mine and is something enjoy teaching.

I was a psychology tutor in 2015 at College of the Canyons in the TLC for a few months before I took on another on campus student job as an assistant coordinator in the sustainability center at COC. Most recently though, I had been in Guadalajara, Mexico teaching English to kids from ages 6-12, as well as teenagers and adults at Top Notch Academy. I expect a lot from my students but I also expect alot from myself. My philosophy is that you can learn anything as long as you are dedicated, focused, and can think critically.

I am very responsive because my email is linked to my phone, and I believe it is important for your students to know that you are dependable with any need or question they may have. I am honest and will not lie to you and believe that everyone can learn anything with hard work and dedication. Thanks for reading and don't hesitate to contact me for any questions" less...
