Group tutoring allows students to share strategies for learning while promoting cooperation and understanding. It provides opportunities for students to share experiences, learn from one another, build self-confidence, and develop study skills.

K-12 Tutoring

We believe every student is uniquely brilliant and deserves a high-quality education to help them thrive in school and ultimately be prepared for post-secondary education or going on to a career. Students graduating from full-time online schools receive a traditional high school diploma, and many have gone on to attend top colleges and universities.

Our team


Ricky has a high level of professionalism and caring about the people that he works with and for. He would truly be an asset to any team.
Corina Amy (Talkington) Yetter Student Tutor @ Yuba College
Mr. Corleone worked for us in the Writing & Language Development Center as an English tutor for about three years; he has also worked in our College Success Center and at our Sutter County Center campus as a math tutor since 2012. In fact, sometimes he has worked in both centers, so clearly he can balance multiple expectations. In our center, Mr. Corleone worked with student writing. We require our tutors to use a lot of personal discretion in explaining about good writing and in eliciting good work from the students. At the same time, we encourage them to work collaboratively, actively seeking input from other staff and tutors when necessary. Mr. Corleone’s respectful and cheerful demeanor with students and staff made him very effective as a tutor and a co-worker.
Rosemary McKeever Instructional Associate @Yuba College
Ricky is a friend and someone that I admire. As a person, he is smart, capable and intuitive, with a breadth of life and work experience. Ricky is able to relate to people from a wide spectrum of backgrounds.
Steve Allred Attorney @Allred Law
Ricky is the best tutor for Math I’ve ever had. He got me through Math 111, in an accelerated Summer semester, in which I received an A. During the Fall semester, he got me through Math 101A with a high grade as well. Ricky has gone out of his way numerous times to accommodate my school and work schedule to provide his tutoring. I am extremely satisfied and would highly recommend Ricky for any college student who struggles with Math.

He explains thing very clear and also gives you a heads up on future classes in terms of what you need to really get down. Though I am not attending same campus, he is just a call away to help. I have texted him so many times and he was always willing to help. He is amazing. should be an instructor!! He really goes out of his way to help students. You can see his passion and effort in work he puts it
Tanvy Singh Student at Yuba College
I met Ricky back in 2014 I believe and he has made math a lot easier to understand. I have passed all of my math classes because of him. He is so passionate about what he is doing. He has turned math that was my enemy into something I enjoy learning. 📚📊📈📝✏️
Ashley Torlone Student at Yuba College
Ricky is by far the best tutor I have ever had! He is so patient and helps me grasp the material no matter how long it takes. He doesn’t want me to just complete an assignment, but truly understand the material. He never minds taking time out and working with me. Ricky truly does want to help all of his students and does all he can for us. He is all around an awesome person in general and his passion for helping students is amazing!
Miranda Jewel Smith Student at Yuba College
Thanks to Ricky I’m understanding math again for the first time in 8 years!
Josie Barkey Student at Yuba College
I met Ricky a couple years back, when I decided to go back to school. Ricky is an amazing tutor, he does not just help you with your homework but he goes above and beyond what is expected from a traditional tutor. He takes pride in each and every student that he helps. Patience and persistence would have to be his greatest asset. Over the past few years and I have been able to reach out to him with all sorts of issues. He never turns anyone away he will always make time for his students. My daughter’s grades significantly improved but not only that she started to enjoy math, which was One of her worst subjects that she used to dread. I wish I would’ve had a teacher like him growing up I know it would’ve had a drastic effect on my education. He does not just help his students with homework, his personal mission is to see his students succeed. Taking pride in not just tutoring but seeing the success in each and every student all the way through to the end. I am proud to say Ricky was not just my tutor, but now has become a truly great friend.

Helping his students is what Ricky does best. I have heard over and over again from students how math was so hard before they met Ricky. He has a way of turning math into magic. There’s no one like him. He will help you learn in ways you never thought possible!
