I am an experienced high school teacher who has tutored through multiple school districts in the state of Rhode Island as well as privately. I have a Bachelors degree in Physics from Holy Cross with a concentration in Pre-Medical studies. I chose to go into teaching rather than attending medical school for the simple reason of connecting and educating students. I have taught for 16 years in two schools, one private parochial high school located in Massachusetts and one public high school in Rhode Island. My teaching experience includes Physics, Chemistry and Earth Science.

Great session. — Richard as usual had a great session with my son. If you aren't using Richard to help your child get through chemistry you are missing a great teacher. I know if a teacher like Richard had worked with me in high school I would have done so much better. He is one of the best I have ever seen, caring, tough, patient and very aware of how a student learns. ...
