When I decided to join the Air Force, I needed help with test preparations for the ASVAB. Richard was quick to respond back and to set up a time and date to meet for a first lesson. I was very impressed with his personalized preparation for my first lesson. It was way above my expectations. Richard didn't just prepare me for the ASVAB, our sessions were also a college prep lesson. He gave me the tools to study and learn on my own. Richard genuinely cared and checked on me regularly.
Ashley is the consummate student. She came to me with goals and mission in mind. My job was to apply focus and give her the tools to succeed. Once accommodated, with a little accountability, she took off. My program is certain to raise the central score by 10 points no matter the situation, yet in Ashley's case the figure bounced by much more. She is well on her way to a good opportunity and a commission. Well Done Ashley, Great Job !!!
I was in a bind and needed immediate help, as in needed help yesterday! I read a previous review of Richard's work and noticed that a previous client mentioned "contacted me right away". I thought that was great but in reality I thought "right away" probably meant sometime in the next few days. I was way off. In my case I reached out to Richard at 11:30pm. Richard responded to me in less than 10 minutes! Yes, 10 minutes. It was unreal. I told him I was in a potential jam and that I had a deadline coming up that I was in danger of missing, as my laptop had just broke down and I could not access certain programs such as Microsoft Project. He said "Don't worry, send me what you have, what you need to do and we'll get it done together". I told him I didn't want to be pushy but needed to know how soon we could begin to work on this? He responded "How about we start working on it as soon as you send me the information? Is that quick enough?" I thought he was joking as it was almost midnight. We wrapped things up around 2:45AM that night!
I challenge others with this: Where else are you going to find this kind of dedication and service?
By the way, the work he helped me with was spot on, the changes I needed him to make along the way were done in real time and then the follow up afterwards was fantastic.
This is the first time I have used the WyzAnt Tutoring resource and I am beyond impressed with the quality of the service and professionalism that I experienced with Richard H. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
I would also like to add that the format that WyzAnt put together to enable these great connections is really well planned and made the process very smooth and enjoyable. Thanks Richard H. and WyzAnt for a truly great experience!
In a word, Rich was phenomenal! His knowledge of the subject, Managerial Accounting, actually exceeded the information provided by the course instructor. Through proficient communication skills, Rich was able to convey the subject matter in a manner that I could comprehend. Before hiring him as a tutor I was actually considering dropping the course, even though I knew it was inevitable that I would have to retake it at some point in time. Nonetheless, I was so confused at the initiation of the course that I felt dropping it was the only option. Fortunately, I found Rich who was so much more than just a tutor. He was always available, encouraging and demonstrated a personal interest in my success. He is an excellent tutor that I would recommend for any of the various subjects is knowledgeable in.
After two sessions, I was on my way. EVERY time I got stuck, he'd help me out of a jam. Well this last time was horrible. I'd completed work (data entry) on two ledgers-paper records to Excel. And I even emailed the finished product to myself for safekeeping. I opened the email just to check to see what I'd sent and discovered the version of the spreadsheet I'd sent was the one I'd done before spending all day and night entering data! I called Richard in a panic. I couldn't find the new version, ANYWHERE! Within a short time, he was able to find all of the new work I'd done and he saved my sanity. If you need to learn this program but might be embarrassed or afraid to call your tutor because you couldn't remember some steps, Richard NEVER judges. He helps and with kindness and patience. I highly recommend Richard!
Richard helped with Managerial Accounting. His patience and ability to explain concepts in easily understood terms allowed me to achieve my goal. He made sure that we reviewed difficult concepts until I understood and was able to apply it. Without a doubt, without his assistance I would not have passed my class. During our meetings, Richard made me feel that I was his only priority. My only regret, if any, is that I did not meet Richard earlier. I would recommend Richard to anyone that is struggling with accounting.
Charlene had gotten into bad shape in the course. She just needed a little better process and some guidance regarding the concepts that were eluding her.
Once she was pointed in the right direction, the path to success was obvious. Charlene Passed with flying colors!!!
We are a very well organized company and wanted to make sure the tutor and our employee worked well together prior to scheduling the first tutor session. We discussed what the employee needs to learn and the expected time frame in which to achieve it.
We will do another rating after a few tutor sessions, but believe Richard is the best choice for us.
I provided a complete, in-depth analysis session leading to a full understanding of the expected results. I included the student and the organization in the process.
Program was halted after the organization discovered that the student was a beginner rather than an intermediate as originally thought.
Very strange termination methods for such a seemingly well organized organization.
Richard is patient, knowledgeable and thorough. Was available and accommodating to my schedule. Great knowledge of MS WORD. Does a very good job of explaining, and 'teaching you to fish' not just 'giving you the fish.'
Kahmien was a very well spoken student. In a rush, he found me on the site and enlisted my help within minutes. Since he was in a rush and had only a few things to learn to achieve his objective, I offered remote PC-to-PC support through a program I use in my professional endeavors over the net. He accepted the challenge and we were off to the races. The originally discussed time estimate came and went when a specific MS Office feature failed to perform for me (using section marks to protect further formatting in MS WORD.) Kahmien calmly agreed to another session. I provided extra effort, in the form of a template to allow him to appreciate his extra efforts again and again.
Excellent tutor! Richard is the Strategic Management subject matter expert.
It's like having a casual chat with your best bud while enjoying a cup of java at
the same time. Brainstorming sessions but learning will occur.
Vallery is an excellent student and now a fine MBA graduate. She is another recent student that sought my help to finish that “last sticky class” to graduate. Vallery set the pace, established the rules of engagement, and constantly over-achieved her way to success. Vallery completed her coursework and has graduated in fine form.
This testimonial for Richard H. is long overdue. I graduated last December with a dual MBA in Finance & Accounting-Strategic Management. I was struggling in my last class needed to graduate—Marketing Strategy. I have not attended a Marketing class I earned my Associate’s Degree in 1997. The depth and knowledge of Marketing Richard H. brought to my tutoring sessions I found to be unparalleled to anyone, including the course instructor. In my opinion, Richard H. was more qualified to instruct my class than the instructor and I know for a fact that I would not have passed my class, let alone graduate last December. Thank you for the exceptional tutoring experience.
James was very easy to help. He was open to listen, contemplate, and synthesize new information. When I consider this effort, I remember how methodically James approached my services. He took complete and meticulous advantage of the student discount, managing his time budget every step of the way. Once one aspect of the project was complete, he aptly listened to praise and critique, and then as if a switch was hit he was ready to move on. In every way, James gave me as much fulfillment as any of my recent students. I cannot imagine how far he may go in life with his mindset and approach.
My lesson with Richard H. on 4/20/11 was very productive! He was very patient, courteous and professional. He knows Excel well enough to teach in a computer science classroom environment. I give him a rating of 5 stars (out of 5) in all categories. He truly deserves it.
Bernard is just one of my recent success stories. He listened well, he stood up to my requests to show new skills in the line of study and produced results according to plan. When Bernard finished his efforts successfully, he realized the additional benefits I provide at every turn. Bernard’s passion to learn added up to a complete formula for a successful tutoring engagement, indeed.
My reason for seeking an Excel tutor was to upgrade my skill set with Excel functions for Data Analysis.
Richard's knowledge of worksheet formulas, computer language, and Microsoft Office applications
reflects an advanced level of knowledge. His ability to understand what I need to learn when given an example not only demonstrates his knowledge base but more so shows how he listens to
understand what to teach me.
After our second session, we decided to focus on my immediate needs, while simultaneously, looking at a broader view of instruction. He has introduced the important functions and concepts allowing me to use those as a building blocks for creating worksheets that incorporate macros. He recommended websites so I could learn on my own and seek answers to augment our sessions. As of our fourth session we have integrated homework to further my hands on approach and increase my programming skills.
He is patient, highly knowledgeable, and places a high value on being the best for his students.
Blanche challenged my expertise and ability to present extremely high level material regarding MS Excel. We learned early on, that she needed to specify her own advanced curriculum. She went on to describe needs that exceeded our ability to communicate, so we invented a new process through trial and error that worked very well. Blanche and I found several new features of the latest MS Excel program that I had experienced in earlier versions and now saw that their functionality was greatly improved. Together, we learned a great deal about very advanced MS Excel, while she learned how to express her needs better during every session.
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.
I am uniquely qualified to coach the taking of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery Exams. I scored all 99's (there are no 100s) on the exam here in Clark county, Nevada as part of my scholastic career.
Study guides that are available are required and should be purchased prior to enlisting help, but you may just need a little help to conquer a particular subject or remember to address a detail in proper fashion.
The ASVAB are an all day ordeal and preparation must include the ability to organize your thoughts and manage your pace, too.

I have engineered the use of computers, peripheria, inputs, outputs, control, user interaction, and tactile feedback. There aren't many problems in computer engineering that I have yet to face. I look forward helping you meet these challenges head on.
I have faced challenges in computer programming and logic for many years. Puzzles, conundrums, theroems, axioms, and hypothesis all lead to developing a useful toolbox of solutions that can be applied throughout any complex and/or simple single task. I look forward to helping you meet these challenges as well.
I am skilled at helping students of computer science. The discipline requires a bold and brave statement about learning, psychology, logic, organization, timing, grace, elegance, math symbology, and many other diverse traits. The computer scientist will be the only other person to know almost everything about the subject material at hand since they had to write the programs and develop the specific knowledge in such a way as to train a computer to help.
In direct relation, the computer scientist must craft their toolbox used throughout a career. Included is data structures, state machines, formal languages, finite automata, virtualization, and other directly related material to better understand the "cyberclay" used to build useful tools.
I enjoy helping anyone aspiring to succeed in this area of learning.
I have used MS Publisher and various graphical programs to adapt information of all kinds to various printable formats. The challenges faced when realizing the choices made reflect the choices being presented now and so on make up the give and take forum that is the publishing media.

Looking at computers as tools, makes us realize that they are comprised of specific elements similar to home theater systems. Specialized devices handle specific tasks. Also, certain programs handle the basic computer operations, too. When it is understood at a basic level, the computer stops being so mystical and begins to be the tool it is meant to be. I look forward to helping you understand computers to make them friendly tools for your use.
I am also a personal computer builder, having developed several machines from simple single core Pentiums to massive, multiscreen(up to 12) machines with multiple graphics cards, and quad core processors.

In the early days, MS Windows was merely a means to an end, a way to present information that was already being manipulated in other, more manual ways. Today, after the migration of processes through 95, 98, 2000, XP, VISTA, and now Windows 7 those means have become huge aides in the manipulation and evaluation of information that helps us in our daily lives.
Realizing the the steps to making a process great for everyone may mean that the "furnishings" get moved around once in a while or useful features change to be more effective for more users.
I look forward to introducing these features to you in whatever method you need to see the ways to be more effective with the computer and Windows to meet the challenges you face daily.
