About Richard

I'm a 60+ but youthful full-time and part-time college professor and law school director of academic support with a B.A. in political science (Phi Beta Kappa), M.A. in English, M.F.A. in creative writing, J.D. in law (Order of the Coif) and over 70 other graduate credits in education and other subjects. I've worked at universities, law schools, community colleges and one high school in New York City, Florida, Arizona. I am a writing specialist (author of numerous books reviewed in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, and articles published in People, New York Times, Newsday and many other periodicals).

At law schools, I helped students with academic difficulties, taught workshops on study skills, tutored for bar exams. As an undergraduate professor, I taught various subjects, including remedial writing, literature (include AP English in high school), social science, legal studies, business, humanities, political science, history. I'm personable, easy to get along with, funny, highly intelligent and creative. I've also taught creative writing as writer in schools from elementary to high school under state arts council fellowship and at a number of writing conferences. I'd be happy to work with middle or high school students, college students and others in any of the subjects I'm certified in.

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.

Criminal Justice

I have been an undergraduate instructor in legal studies, English, humanities, social sciences, computer education, and other subjects since 1975. At the University of Florida law school, I received the book award in first-year Criminal Law and also got A's in The Adversary System and Criminal Procedure; as a staff attorney in social policy at UF Law's Center for Governmental Responsibility after I graduated, I researched issues in criminal justice and other subjects on grants from the state of Florida. I taught at John Jay College of Criminal Justice from 1981-1986. As director of academic resources at Shepard Broad Law School at Nova Southeastern University, I helped our graduates prepare for both undergraduate Criminal Law classes (I supervised 5 teaching assistants each year) and the Criminal Law portion of the Multi-State Bar Exam and the Florida Bar Exam.
