About this tutor

I am open to video conferencing in addition to meeting in person to tutor if that works for the student as well.

Revisiting material I learnt as a student stimulates me mentally and gives me satisfaction to be now be able to help students who are in need of extra help outside of classroom.

    'Ritika is very thorough in her teaching and explains difficult concepts well'

  • Chloe Lee

    She is so knowledgeable in her subject that she not only knows the materials very well, but also knows how to explain them to students. Most importantly, she has a great heart - she is understanding. empathetic, reasonable and flexible. Would recommend her any day. She saved my AP Biology student from almost failing.
