Richard is a very patient and methodical tutor. He takes the time to assess strengths and weaknesses and puts a plan together to fix the root cause of weaknesses. He has shown my daughter that you need to understand why you do things a certain way as well as how to do it. My daughter now truly understands the "why" as well as the "how." He has given her the ability to think abstractly. She can now look at a problem and understand it at a high level as well as carry out the detailed computations required to solve it. This has helped her in more than just the AP Calculus class he is tutoring her in.
My son decided to take Calculus, having SKIPPED college algebra. I had my doubts, be we agreed that if we could find the right tutor, he should try. We engaged Richard early in the semester, and my son met with him twice a week for intensive tutoring. Richard was able to convey the concepts to my son very effectively, in spite of the fact he was missing background in algebra. Richard was able to diagnose his issues, and the end result for my son was a B+ in the course. I am 500 miles away from my son, but I received detailed reports after each session on my son's progress. All in all, very pleased with both the process and the results. Thanks Richard!
Richard is an experienced and effective tutor. He gives you confidence in your abilities, while quickly adapting his methods to effectively teach a wide variety of topics. His sage-like knowledge, confidence inspiring resume, and gravitas helped me greatly. Furthermore, he has no trouble answering emails *quickly.* It was the weekend before my finals when I found Richard. My math concepts were a mess. I was confused and disoriented by the sheer volume of information being crammed in a 6-month period. I was lost. It all changed when I met Richard. The man is a mathematics giant. He is unafraid of defining complex concepts and unassuming when helping you organize yourself. A strong work ethic guides the man. He not only elucidates concepts, but provides insight on how best to use them in a effective way. Thanks to Richard, I felt safe in the realm of mathematics once again. Sincerely, Carlos.
