About Richard

I have devoted my working life to helping people of all ages succeed. Children, teens and adults. I possess a BA in History with a minor in English Literature plus a Masters Degree in Library and Information Science. I worked for the County of Los Angeles Public Library System as a Children's, Teen & Adult Services Librarian--I can teach young reluctant readers to read better.

Over the years, I offered many, many Events and Seminars to students including Writers Workshops, College Application Workshops, SAT & ACT, and AP Workshops. I've used my expertise to assist elementary and middle school and high school students with writing, English, reading and grammar.

I also assist college students with their undergraduate and masters program needs. Helping ESL students is another of my specialties. I also am familiar with various standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, & GED.

I am a published writer and have worked as an advertising copywriter. I can help you improve your writing skills. I am punctual and reliable. I look forward to working with you and helping you attain success in your school and employment career.
