Do you want to apply for your preliminary teaching credential, but you need to pass the Reading Instruction Competence Assessment (RICA) first? Have you taken it in the past and failed? Have you tried cramming for the RICA by taking a one-day course but couldn’t retain all the information? Do you need a systematic approach to process and organize all of the content that will be on the exam? I have a solution for you. You can do this.
There is one more seat available for my on-line RICA test prep tutoring package that starts Sunday, August 28th. Because most people have work schedules during the week and some have children to distract us or church to attend, we will meet on-line for two hours early each Sunday morning for six consecutive Sundays starting August 28th from 7:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. All domains and competencies will be covered, along with standardized test-taking strategies and how to tackle the case study during these twelve hours of instruction. You will take two full-length practice exams during the next six weeks, and I will grade them for you to provide you with feedback and offer suggestions on how to improve upon and successfully complete constructed response questions and the case study.
These will be shared test prep tutoring sessions with a small group of four students and myself (you, two or three other students, and myself). Because of the shared nature of the tutoring sessions, you have the benefit of paying half-price for the same material I cover in my one-on-one tutoring sessions. Included in my RICA test prep tutoring package, I provide twelve hours of instruction, all materials/curriculum used for our sessions delivered to your mailing address, weekly homework assignments, two full-length practice exams along with personalized grading and feedback, and a systematic approach to studying for the RICA. You will get all of this for the shared-session price of $50.00 per hour – a total of $600.00. Once you pay for the package, within 24 hours I will order your curriculum to have delivered to your mailing address within a couple of days. I will e-mail you instructions leading up to our first meeting on the 28th.
The homework assignments are essential to your success. Standardized test prep takes commitment and work, but it’s for a short time, and then you can have this test behind you and move forward in your teaching career. For more information, or to sign up for the last spot in this RICA course, you may either call or text me at the phone number listed at the top of this page, or you may fill out a short contact form on the “Contact” tab next to the “Blog” tab above this post.
