My son has been with Mr. Richard for few months now, and my son likes him. He is very patient and always on time. He is nice person.
After having met with Richard for about 5 weeks now I can report that he is a very good tutor.
Richard is tutoring in math and language arts. He is constantly pressing our young student to perform better in math and spelling, story writing, and use of the English language.
Richard uses every minute to get the most out of the hour. He is always on time and assigns homework. He then follows-up at the next session with the results of the homework assignment.
A good use of the Internet for coming up with additional ways to teach the subject matter seems to be second-nature to Richard.
We are very happy with Richard.

Richard continues to provide excellent and demanding tutoring in math and language arts for our young student. Every session is at a pace which is stimulating and focused on what is wanted. The student is constantly engaged.
We continue to be very happy with Richard after many weeks of tutoring experience with him.

We are so fortunate to have a great tutor like Richard. He is always ready with a challenge and a problem for our young scholar. Richard is dependable and keeps our student engaged all the time. Richard is very good at bringing in experiences from his own life to add meaning to the subject he is teaching.
A great tutor!
It was my son's 1st lesson with Richard. He likes Richard. We will have the 2nd lesson on next Saturday.
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.
As a tutor with the NCLB program I have two years of experience with children grades 1-5.
