A message from Emily Muccianti:

This test is hard, my friends! Failing costs money, so let me help you prepare and get through it.

I am a reading specialist, interventionist, and a bit of a reading diva. I have helped hundreds of new teachers over the past five years prepare for and pass the RICA exam.

If you need a personal touch to keep you accountable and on track in your preparations, you are in the right place. I will break down difficult content into understandable chunks. You will walk away feeling more confident and ready to tackle the RICA exam.
