Richard is extremely well qualified and able to help at every level. He is a good listener
and patient with a teenager. My son is quite comfortable with Richard and feels free to ask questions.
My son has gained confidence and greatly improved his Pre-Calculus skills and his grades. Richard is very efficient with the time he spends with my son, and they get a great deal accomplished in a short amount of time. Highly recommended!
Richard has truly been a godsend when it comes to my daughter and physics! He is very patient and has a way of explaining concepts until she understands them. She was very resistant to working with a tutor, but now she's so happy that he is helping her keep her head above water. And I am happy that to no longer worry that she might fail.
I struggled in College Algebra until I began tutoring with Richard. His tutoring made all the difference. He has been very patient. He even tutored me over the phone, at my request, when I was contagious with the flu. I am currently happy to have Richard tutoring me in Pre-Calc and Chemistry.
My son and Richard had a session in which they worked on AP Physics. About an hour after Richard left, he sent me a link to a Physics website that he thought might be useful to my son. We like the fact that he not only shows him how to solve problems in an efficient way but also shows him how he can help himself when Richard isn't available.
Richard has been helping my son, who has Asperger's, through some very difficult math. He is patient and my son always comes home more calm after working with Richard. My son has a calculus test coming up, and Richard is working with him through limits at infinity and derivatives, helping him feel like this is something he can do! The ACT math review was very helpful, especially coming off of a summer of only individual review. The guidance Richard gave was both instructive and relevant. We are always very positive about math and difficult topics in our home, and Richard has provided us with the extra support my son has needed to help his understanding become more solid. He's a wonderful resource!
Great tutor! I am impressed with Richard's professionalism. Our goals with our college son are being carried out with responsible diligence. Richard goes beyond most tutors, making extra efforts to make sure our son understands assignments, completes homework on time, and stays on course with goals. He's bright, knowledgeable, and personable! It is a great relief to have Richard in our lives.
Richard is great, friendly, and very knowledgeable. I've worked with him twice and would definitely do so again. Highly recommended!
Richard H. was a fantastic tutor for my daughter who needed to pass calculus. He not only helped her through the subject matter, but near the end of the quarter when she needed to make a final push to succeed, Richard was ahead of the game to the point of intervening on her behalf with the teacher. I cannot speak highly enough of his dedication to her success, and his willingness to size up reality correctly and take action to address what was needed. He was super responsive as well. I highly recommend Richard H.
I spent 2 hours with Richard preparing for my Physics II final. Richard was awesome. He was extremely quick to help me solve each problem. He is also great with helping me understand conceptually what each problem is asking me. He is a fantastic tutor who is able to teach me while adapting to my learning style. Worth every penny!!
Richard’s tutoring was instrumental in my daughter’s SAT Math score. His flexible approach to tutoring can cater to any student’s need. He is very encouraging and patient.
Richard helped me through my first quarter of graduate-level statistics. He was very patient, and worked through many problems with me to help me gain a better understanding of the underlying concepts. He was even available to help me by phone when I was struggling with an assignment. I feel like I have a good grasp of the material thanks to Richard's help, and I got an A in the class!
So personable and helpful! Richard is patient and very thorough. Also very professional! He is prompt and courteous! We highly recommend him.
Richard is a very patient and kind. He does not rush through a lesson. He makes sure that the student feels confident about the material before moving forward. He is very easy to get in contact with - whether it is by phone, email or text. My daughter really like working with him since he is very understanding and has great experience. Thank you, Richard.
Extremely patient and calm with our daughter, which she really appreciates. She gains quite a bit of confidence from working with Richard. He is also very easy to contact and flexible when we need to change times or add extra time to her sessions. He has been very helpful with our daughter's Algebra II homework, physics homework, and SAT math review.
My son has really enjoyed his AP Calculus tutoring sessions with Richard. He finds Richard to be a good teacher who knows the subject matter well. He communicates well with my son making learning easier. We would highly recommend Richard as a tutor!
Richard was the first tutor to respond quickly to me, providing his cell number and willing to go over Algebra problems over the phone. He helped me to understand concepts that I had much difficulty with, and had final exams approaching. With his help, I not only understood the concepts, I managed to get a B in College Algebra and an A in Chemistry!
Richard works with my daughter in prepping for the SAT Subject Test. He's providing great ways to work through problems faster in order to achieve a higher score. My daughter feels she is improving in speed and accuracy. We will continue to work with him up through the test and hopefully then, throughout the school year for AP Calc. Thankful to have found him.
After two sessions with Richard I was able to take my test and got a "A". Not only did Richard get me caught up in nearly a day, he was able to help me learn the material and learn it at a fast pace. If you got a timeline that you got to meet and need to get the martial done ASAP but then be able to "ace" your test, Richard's your guy! Thanks Richard!
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 have a good grasp of the equations and theory behind electronics and have worked with circuit simulation software. I also have been a computer network troubleshooter.
I prepped a 10-year old recently in ISEE math. He took the test and, coupled with his above average verbal skills, was able to get on the waiting list at Overlake. When another family decided not to go with the school, my student was picked, after an extensive interview process involving the whole family, to be able to enter that school this coming fall (2012).
I have worked extensively with linear algebra and matrices in high school and university courses as preparation for a BS in Math. It was all a part of my entire math curriculum. In addition I have tutored extensively in the field of linear algebra.
Having worked in the IT industry since the late '70s at companies such as Tektronix and Intel, I began working with Microsoft Windows from the very earliest releases and administered both server and client releases including Win95/Win98/2000/XP/Vista/Win7/Win8Beta and NT/2000/2003/2008 Server OS's. I have installed networks, configured computers and setup security and many other types of software.
I was employed for many years in the field of both local and wide area networking at companies like Intel Corporation and Nortel as well as owning and operating my own small business in sales, configuration and integration of computer networks.
