About Richard


Bio

I have tutoring certificates through the Maricopa college system. I also have been an adjunct instructor with A-1 clearance for substitute teaching in the Scottsdale and Paradise Valley Unified school systems. More recently I have been teaching in the continuing education format and one-on-one tutoring. I also have expertise in various computer applications, home networking setup and operation, operating systems - office apps, performance tuning, etc.

Other concepts I have procedures for include: portrait control, using liquification to enhance body shape, copy and replace objects from one image to another such as heads, eyes, or a complete person. Advanced use of cloning, enhancing boring skies, creating a personalized signature brush, etc.
Photography

Photography

Currently teaching three levels of digital camera at Paradise Valley community college including "shooting in raw". As owner operator of my private company, I currently in photographing family portraits and individual portraits and family events. This includes shooting portraits for several business websites.

Microsoft Outlook,

Microsoft Outlook

I am qualified to tutor Outlook because I have used Outlook for at least 10 years both in the corporate and in the residential environment. In addition to the simplicity of reading and sending emails, the strength of Outlook lies in its additional features such as logging and maintaining a contact database, a calendar and scheduling database, and a task database to manage your daily activities. It is also important to know how to set up the parameters associated with your specific Internet service provider. I have tutored 4 years for the Learning Support Center Of Paradise Valley Community College where I have received level I and level II tutoring certificates.
Microsoft Project,

Microsoft Project

In my career as a technical project manager, I used Microsoft Project for most of my projects and required my staff do the same. We became experts in the use of PERT Charting and Ghantt Charts to set up the project for project control, budgeting, and economic analysis. Then during the lifecycle of the project, we used Microsoft Project to manage and control, track progress, track budget, report to upper management, perform re-planning, And general control of the project. We also prepared higher level charts for communication to upper management allowing them to track the progress of several projects simultaneously
Microsoft Windows,

Microsoft Windows

I support several customers in the Microsoft Windows operating system either face-to-face or using remote control support from my office. At the moment I would say I have about 30 customers that rely upon me about 100% for their Microsoft Windows operating system support. This includes support for slow systems, infected systems, general navigation, and new system installations and conversions. this support then moves into the general office applications associated with the Windows environment such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.

I am always proud to meet and help someone qualify to defend our country. since my background in mathematics includes all of the disciplines through calculus and physics, the mathematics material in the ASVAB testing is certainly included. I have also had several students in the past that have resulted in total satisfaction and return requests for help. I don't know which students have completed their acceptance into our military, but I can say that the ASVAB mathematics material did not hold him back.

The Best

Are there more than five stars? If so, Richard deserves them. My son was struggling end of first semester in Honors Physics. He started working with Richard in November and pulled his grade up to a B. He worked with Richard throughout the spring and ended with an A in the class. Richard is thorough, patient, smart and supportive. He is an excellent teacher.

Jennifer, 19 lessons with Richard

Love the digital blackboard

He knows calculus well and he's very organized. He's responsive and the digital blackboard he uses is pretty cool. I'm very glad we worked together. I know we will again.

Mikel, 3 lessons with Richard

great teacher

Delivers the point accurately. Very friendly. Excellent teaching skills and great preparation before class. Clear ways of explanation. I understood every concept i had concerns with alongside with reviewing all concepts and practicing them.

Joe, 2 lessons with Richard

Very knowledgeable tutor

Richard helped with understanding Circuits. It is a pleasure to have Richard as a tutor, he is very knowledgable, patient and has a great personality. I definitely would recommend him to my friends.

Florina, 1 lesson with Richard

Knowledgeable Honors Pre Calculus Tutor

Richard is very knowledgable! He is patient and explains concepts well. He doesn't waste any time. Richard will even do prep work in advance so he is ready to teach.

Karen, 5 lessons with Richard

Patient tutor

Richard is very patient and a knowledgeable tutor. He shows up on time and is very passionate about making sure the student learns math. I would recommend him to anyone and I plan to use him again soon.

Toschma, 1 lesson with Richard

Highly Knowledgeable and great at explaining the process to solve the problems

Richard taught me how to factor and he taught me tricks for solving binomials with Pascal's triangle. He also gave me tips on how to organize my math work which lead me to getting the correct answer easier. I highly recommend Richard for any algebra help and any Physics problems that you are struggling with.

Michele, 7 lessons with Richard

Very knowledgeable with great teaching methods

Richard helped me by breaking down calculus in a way that made it seem simpler than I could have ever envisioned. Yes... calculus. Excellent teaching methods, very clear. I asked questions like "what is the simplest method for understanding how to approach this concept?" and I received answers that were clear, very helpful, and most importantly, things I could repeat on my own. Appreciate all the help!

Lauren, 1 lesson with Richard

The first meeting went well

He is honest, knowledgeable, and helpful. It was a good first discussion to get a sense of how he tutors and attacks difficult problems.
