Hi, my name is Richard! In the fall of 2013, I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in physics at the University of Florida and a mathematics education minor through the UFTeach program. I am an extremely hard worker, and my student's learning has always been my number one priority. In order to ensure that my students understand the material, I believe it is important to encourage and support them in a very caring and respectful manner. I believe that patience is a virtue and that learning is a process, not a one time event. I am willing to invest and dedicate an enormous amount of time to my students and to never give up as long as they need me.

My minor in education has allowed me to work with a variety of learners from middle and high school, as well as from the collegiate level. Specifically, in a classroom setting I have taught the subjects of Geometry at Buchholtz High School, Pre-calculus at P.K. Younge, and Advanced Algebra with Financial Applications at Gainesville High School, holding tutoring sessions for students who needed the extra help before and after school. Outside of the university, I became certified to teach students with developmental disabilities (autism, cerebral palsy, etc.) as a support assistant by taking research classes in brain development and safety classes in CPR, First Aid, and AED.

I plan to be a high school mathematics/physics teacher. My teaching strategy focuses on helping my students understand the basic, fundamental concepts and procedures of a subject by modifying my explanations according to their learning style. If you want a personalized learning experience, then I may be the tutor for you.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.

I look forward to helping you!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

With my major in physics and minor in mathematics education through the UFTeach program, I manipulate variables and solve equations on a daily basis. In other words, algebra is fundamental knowledge in my line of work. As part of being in the UFTeach program, I taught a 12th grade class on Advanced Algebra with Financial Applications at Gainesville High School. After I completed the UFTeach program, I learned the importance of differential instruction and being able to teach a diverse set of learners.

Differential Equations

I completed a Differential Equations course, MAP2302, at UF with an A. I am fluent in solving first order linear ordinary differential equations and first order non-linear ordinary differential equations using the techniques of separation of variables, exactness, and integrating factors. I am also fluent in solving second order linear ordinary differential equations using homogenous equations, the Wronskian, the Laplace transform, and power series.
