My background is in engineering and related fields including mathematics and sciences. Specifically, I am proficient and highly skilled in Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, SAT MATH, Trigonometry, Geometry, Calculus, and Physics. For the last 23 years I have been CEO of a local Internet Company and have the hands-on experience of Marketing, HTML programing, JAVA and Webdesign. I have taught at the college level at FDU and Brookdale, taught many Adult Education Classes and still conduct hands-on seminars concerning Marketing and Branding.
I really enjoy working with students. The best feeling I have is when I leave a tutoring session, and I know the student has a better understanding of the material than they did before. I feel that with my easy going nature and a way to explain things so students will learn, students will gain more confidence in the material and become better students.

Richard tutored my son for Chemistry. I would definitely recommend Richard: He is flexibile in setting up the time to meet with my son, and has command of the subject matter. Richard taught the subject at my son's pace and made certain he understood the principals.
We will continue to work with Richard and would recommend him - no question.
Richard is always on time. He made sure my children understood everything before he left. You can feel comfortable inviting him into your home and knowing that your children will learn.
Richard is very easy-going and friendly. He was my tutor for public speaking and I must admit that he helped me a lot. He pointed out the things I had to work on in order to improve my skills. I found his criticism very helpful and mind opening. After completing several lessons with him, I was finally conscious of the things I did wrong as a public speaker and I was able to work on my weak areas. I would definitely recommend him for anyone who's seeking a tutor for this subject.
My son had an initial session with Richard and it was a very good session. Richard provided tools to practically address issues that helped him to better understand key concepts. Good confidence building approach.
I would recommend Richard to anyone looking for a public speaking coach or tutor - as he taught me the necessary skill set to move forward with confidence, which is very important in the public speaking arena!
Richard is very great tutor. I was very nervous about looking for a tutor as an adult, but Richard's approach was excellent. Richard was tutoring me in Math for a law enforcement test that I had failed 1 yr ago. His skills in tutoring not only helped me pass the test this year but also brought my grade up 12 points! Whether your looking for a tutor for your children or are an adult that needs refresher lessons in subjects, Richard certainly is an excellent choice to get you where you need to be.
Being it my first lesson with Richard, it was a good one. He helped me understand areas of Algebra 2 where I was a bit confused.
Richard possesses a wealth of knowledge regarding excel and is an excellent teacher. Thank you Richard for helping me out with an otherwise difficult project.
Richard is a fabulous tutor always available in a short time. He is patient and gave me the confidence to conquer College Physics. He took my stress down from 10 to 5 in a few days, I would highly recommend him! Thank you very much for all your help!
Richard promptly returns emails; notifies if there is a cancellation and therefore will give appointment on short notice; He is an excellent Math and Computer tutor and relates well to the student.
Richard was very easy to communicate with while setting up our initial appointment and while we were going over the course material. He was prompt and prepared and he made things very easy to understand in simple terms.
Richard is definitely a tutor who is understanding is willing to help and make sure I understand what I am doing.
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.
