Earth Science Tutoring In NYC

Former chemical engineer turned full-time private tutor Brian Ricks proudly offers earth science tutoring in New York City, Brooklyn and Queens. Call (619) 880-0133 to learn more or schedule your first session.

Earth science classes are sometimes tough, especially if you need some extra assistance. Teachers and professors are busy and can be hard to pin down. Teaching assistants are often overworked, and they may not have the teaching skills to help you in the way that you need. You have social and family obligations, other classes, and perhaps a job. You simply don’t have time to run around looking for someone to help.

An Earth Science Private Tutor Is The Answer

Private tutoring in earth science may be just what you need. You don’t have to be a genius in math and science to pass earth science. You simply need a tutor who can break down the material in a way that makes sense to you.

A chemical engineer with more than 10 years of experience in the tech sector, I started tutoring when I was in high school. Three years ago, I made the decision to leave engineering and become a full-time tutor. I have always loved math and science, and I learned that tutoring others helped me refine my own skills.


I was valedictorian of my high school class, and I went on to Clarkson University as a chemical engineering major. I tutored throughout my college career and graduated at the top of my major. I served as a teaching assistant during grad school at Tufts University. I also held jobs as an engineer and scientist, primarily focusing on surface chemistry, thermal analysis, clean energy, and measurement techniques.

I moved to San Diego after grad school, and I kept tutoring while interviewing for engineering positions. I had new students come to me for tutoring each week, and I soon decided to tutor full-time. I founded Bricks Tutoring in 2015, and I relaunched my tutoring company in New York after moving here in 2018.


I can help you learn more in less time, boosting your grades and bringing down your stress levels. You can ace that earth science class! We will work hand in hand, combining your drive and commitment with my skills and experience.
