About Richard

I understand that sometimes Math (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Pre-Calculus) and Physics (I and II) and can seem overwhelming, but with the help of a great teacher, these subjects can become simply a matter of practice.

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 2

For Algebra 2: I have worked with the California Algebra 2 textbook (McDougal Littell) for High School grades 9-12.
