I am here to provide the best tutoring service or your money back. I know it's hard to find the right tutor which is why I always offer the first 30 minutes free. This gives you an opportunity to see my teaching style and decide if you want to continue. It also allows me to test you out as a student. I am looking for dedicated and hard working students that are willing to work hard to improve.

Mathematics and languages are my biggest strengths for teaching. In high school I got 5 in AP Calculus, AP Physics, and AP Spanish.

I studied Economics and French at UCLA. I'm trilingual, speaking Spanish fluently (my native tongue) and French.

I began tutoring in 2006 in college. I have great experience and success teaching students Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Algebra II (Intermediate Algebra), Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus.

With regards to languages, I like to focus on building conversational confidence and proper accent development.

Contact me and we'll make your learning experience fun and worthwhile.

Subjects

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

This has to be one of my favorite subjects because it's the foundation to advanced math subjects leading to Calculus. I learned Algebra from my big brother in elementary school and ever since I became in love with math. It's very common to review some concepts of Pre-Algebra as we move forward to strengthen foundations. I personalize lessons based on your needs that I assess in the first two meetings. I like to drill math concepts to have a solid memorization and mastery that will provide the confidence needed to succeed in this and future math courses.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have consistently improved my Algebra 2 students' grades by at least one letter grade by planning and executing a weekly schedule. My style of tutoring focuses on building confidence through practicing problems with increased difficulty and highlighting and becoming aware of repeated mistake areas. We track everything on a dedicated notebook.
Calculus,

Calculus

5 on AP Calculus AB. I tutored calculus peers in college. My style focuses on a combination of memorizing drills for derivatives and integrals and reviewing concepts and important theorems.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have mastered mathematics past Calculus. Pre-algebra can be the most fun of subjects because it's all about mastering numbers. A huge advantage to my tutoring methodology is that we delve into each topic that you or your child has problems with and we drill the concepts through simple practice problems until they become second-nature.
Precalculus,

Over half of my students are pre-calculus students. Many of my students increase one or two letter grades with my help and instruction.
Geometry, SAT Math

ACT Math,

ACT Math

I tutor ACT math. My method involves taking practice ACT and going over best strategies for best guesses. I go over major foundations that are tested. I recommend a minimum of 1 month 6 hours a week for the syllabus.

Richi Rocks

I have worked with many math tutors over the years so I feel I have a relatively well rounded perspective. Richi is one of the most thorough, patient, creative, and caring instructors I've ever worked with. Basically, Richi is da bomb.

Gabriel, 12 lessons with Richi

Top notch geometry tutor

My 9th grader has been working with Richi for about one month and they have really clicked. He is very patient and knowledgeable and relates well to teens. He is always on time and accommodating with regard to scheduling and he is never in a rush to leave. Even after only one month, my son has gained so much confidence in geometry, it’s fantastic. The time spent with Richi is paying off tremendously, I highly recommend him to anyone that needs a HS math tutor.

Inga, 5 lessons with Richi

Knowledgeable and caring

Richi helped my daughter with precalculus. He made sure that my daughter gets the concept by using different methods to make math easy to understand. He was very flexible with last minute change that we had to make on the timing of our session due to my daughter's finals. I highly recommend him!

Bita, 2 lessons with Richi

Knowledgeable ACT Math Tutor

Richi is working closely with our son to target the type of questions he got wrong on the ACT math section. He is calm and has the tools and knowledge to help him improve his score.

Karen, 6 lessons with Richi

My kid got a lot of his time with Richi

Richi arrived on time and was very helpful and knowledgeable. My son and Richi got along well, he's very pleasant.

Misty , 5 lessons with Richi

Super helpful!

Richi is a great tutor who explains difficult concepts in an understandable way. He is super helpful and goes out of his way to make sure that you understand the content. I was doing terribly in a Pre-calculus class, and Richi helped me bring my grade up to an A. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor for anyone struggling in math!

Devon, 7 lessons with Richi

Great tutor!

Richi was able to explain a theory to my son in a concise way that he was able to understand. Not everyone learns the same way and Richi knew right away how to teach it so my son got it!

Kayla, 6 lessons with Richi

The best math tutor imaginable--great for Algebra, Geometry, etc., etc.

Richi is helping my 9th grade daughter with her math (Algebra and Geometry). My daughter is benefiting greatly from Richi's help and, in fact, she is getting A's in her math classes--thanks to Richi. My daughter enjoys her time with Richi (as much as is feasible, given that it's math, not going to the beach). Richi has a personable manner and is a very positive and supportive person, and he makes math easy to understand. If you want to learn math very well, and do better in school or on your SAT/ACT exams, then Richi is your man. You could not do better. As you can see, we are very pleased with Richi. We plan on continuing to use his services with my oldest daughter and eventually with our other two younger children, as well, in the future.
