About Richard

I taught in high school for three years. I also worked as a mathematics resource aide focused on helping students increase their understanding and performance of mathematical operations. I have tutored in Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra II for both regular and honors students.

I will start by determining a student's level of understanding of concepts and then focus on enhancing their understanding and expanding abilities to a level of mastery.

I try not to add to a student's work load. I will engage them with tasks to stabilize understanding, accelerate performance, and encourage deeper understanding.

I enjoy working with students and making math fun and interesting.

Approved subjects

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

I have an understanding of Algebra which allowed me to test into college level math classes after being out of school for over 20 years. That was the start of my journey to go back to school to earn my teaching degree.

I have a lot of ways to make concepts stick.
