I have taken students who were failing in all types of math and science and got them up to "A" grades. I have been told that I have the ability to explain the most abstract math and science principles in simple everyday terms (even for calculus and precalculus). I have a Master's degree in astrophysics with High Distinction and am also the recipient of the University Medal "for outstanding academic achievement."

Helping students attain their full potential through my tutoring is a great source of personal satisfaction for me. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

ACT Math

I have helped many students prepare for the Math portion of ACT over the years. Have had great success by having the students solve problems on sample tests.

ACT Science

My background as a research scientist and experience as an engineer along with my ability to explain advanced concepts in simple language can get students over major stumbling blocks when tackling the Science portion of the ACT. Use of sample ACT tests also is a big help.

Algebra 2

For many years I have helped both high school and college students (even some with ADHD, dyslexia, etc) become exceptional students in Algebra 2. Indeed, many have gone from failure to the honor roll or dean's list under my tutelage. I am one of WyzAnt's longest standing tutors in Algebra 2 and in other types of math.

Calculus

Even students who have excelled in previous math courses often flounder when they first meet Calculus. I specialize in helping students who are having difficulties with the introductory course.

Geometry

Geometry requires a different type of thinking than algebra does, and many students who excelled in algebra meet difficulty when they get to geometry. I have helped many students successfully make the transition over the years.

Physics

Do I know physics? Well, I have a Master's degree in astrophysics with high distinction and the award of the University Medal. But more importantly, I have the ability to explain complex scientific ideas in an easily understandable way.

Fantastic Tutor!!!!!!! — Rick is an excellent tutor. He started with my daughter around the end of January and her average in Alegebra 3 was a 69. He has met with my daughter twice a week for an hour since then and she currently has a 96 average!!! Omg, she has not had a grade like this all year long. She has gone from flunking test to making A's. Her lowest test grade since starting with Rick has been an 85, and that was ...
