About Richard

My teaching motto: Practice makes perfect. You can achieve anything you set your mind to.

Hi! I am a proud college graduate from Cal Poly Pomona with a B.S in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics. Currently working in application developing and software engineering. I have been helping my friends and family in academic matters for as long as I can remember. I feel comfortable to say that when it comes to teaching or helping you to understand, those around me would say I am the "go to". I try to make things as clear as possible and break things down until simplicity is reached. I always found that it was important to know all the guidelines and steps required for any problem, this way it's more simple to get it down to a science. When helping people I try to make things as interesting and as fun as possible. I totally know what it's like to not want to do something because it's boring.

My teaching style is one-on-one. I will not move or change topics until I know the person I am working with understands completely. I like to offer any alternative methods in order to give the person many tools to solve the same problem. I not only welcome questions, I encourage them. I feel you learn the best when you ask questions pertaining to your curiosity. I always ask questions when I am confused or not totally understanding something. I was always told that there is no such thing as a "dumb" question and truly believe so. I am here to help you, and if that means that you ask a question every 5 seconds, by all means do so. My goal at the end of the day is to leave you with something you did not know the day before. I take education very seriously and I would hope any of my students share my passion. In the words of the late Nelson Mandela:

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

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.

Algebra 1 is where I learned alot of the "tricks" you use for the later math. I must say that this math particular is very fundamental and foundational for most if not all math. I can help any and all who want to learn these tricks.

Algebra 2

I am a big fan of Algebra, its one of my favorite type of math subjects. It teaches some crucial fundamentals that you must know to succeed in higher level math. In Algebra 2 you build on what you learned in Algebra and apply more to it, I definitely can offer my services for this subject.

ASVAB

I have graduated high school and am currently attending a university. I feel that I am equipped with the knowledge and skills to help those looking to pass the ASVAB. I have also taken the practice test and received 100% on a few of the test subjects.

Calculus

I am very familiar with calculus. I was required to take the entire series at my university for my major. I have passed each course and feel that I can help anyone that may need it.

Elementary Math

I have been fascinated with math since a very young age. I feel confident in the fact that I can effectively teach this subject. In my math career I have taken up to Differential Equations in which I did very well. So I definitely can help here.

I have attained my high school diploma and did so with honors. The high school diploma is equivalent to the General Education Development certificate(GED). I am absolutely comfortable that I can help those in need in attaining their GED.

General Computer

Since I can remember I have been fascinated with technology, but especially computers. I am majoring in computer science and have never been happier. I would say when it comes to general computer knowledge, I can definitely hold my own.

Java

I have been programming in java for about two year now. It is the first programming language that I truly learned the ins and outs of. It is actually the language of choice at my university, so I can definitely say I can help here.

Microsoft Excel
