All of Richard’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Richard’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL for 12 years at a certified language school in New York City. Currently I'm teaching a student to pass TOEFL. I can furnish recommendations from students.

Grammar

To improve your grammar, you must understand how the major tenses work (present, past, future, present perfect, past progressive etc.), recognize the parts of speech(nouns, verbs, adjectives,adverbs, prepositions). In order to speak well, it is absolutely important for you to engage in conversation, that is a key component. Just studying grammar is not enough, it is essential for the student to engage in real conversation and be corrected by the teacher.

Literature

I have a Master's Degree in English Literature and read fluently in French literature as well. I attended Rutger's University in undergraduate school and New York University for my Master's Degree.
I am a writer and have written an original screenplay.

Proofreading

I have proofread many essays of students from corporate papers to college essays.

Reading

I have a master's degree in English Literature and have taught many students how to analyze the reading of different kinds of texts: essays, thesis papers, newspapers, magazine articles, school texts books, novels, and poetry.

Vocabulary

I have a master's degree in American literature. I have tutored for 12 years and have helped both high school and college students as well as corporate clients. I would need to talk to you to assess your particular needs and problems.

Writing

I have successfully helped students, both in high school and in college to improve their writing skills. I have a master's degree in English from New York University. I have been tutoring for 12 years.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
