I am a seasoned teacher with over 25 years' classroom experience. I have taught mathematics, physics and chemistry at the high school level. My students have achieved academic success in all these subjects. I am a caring dedicated professional, who is truly concerned about the students progress in the specific subject material. I feel having a sound foundation in the basic concepts of the subject is the primary starting point when teaching. If a student falls behind in the beginning of a course, it is always extremely difficult to get caught up and the problem of comprehending is harder and harder,then finally the frustration can be overwhelming.
The tutor's job is to find where the student is having difficulties by identifying misconceptions and clarifying what is wrong, why it is wrong and how to correct it. The students that I have tutored usually make progress after several intensive tutoring sessions. Some choose to continue on a weekly basis while others prefer to be tutored when they hit the next bump in the road.
I am making a serious commitment to the student, I expect the student to make a serious commitment to learning and cooperating with me. They should always have their textbook and all graded tests and quizzes and a syllabus of course content.
If you are about to take the new A.P. Physics exam or a math exam in the spring, now is the time to get ready!
I tutor to the individual needs and learning styles of the student. The students' self-esteem and confidence are top priorities on the learning curve. I firmly believe that success builds success. If you are willing to make a commitment in overcoming an academic hurdle give me a call or e-mail and together we will work it out.

Grest start

Looking forward to working with this teacher! Seems to know what he’s doing and explanation of the lessons was great.

Erika, 1 lesson with Richard

Good first session

Seems like he is very knowledgeable and a good first meeting. We will update as we go forward with our future sessions and update the success of the tutoring.

Renee, 6 lessons with Richard

Thorough and patient

Richard tutored my 11th grade daughter on pre-calculus. She described him as very knowledgeable and as someone who enjoys teaching. After her session, she felt much more prepared for her test the following day.

Peggy, 7 lessons with Richard

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Richard really helped my 15 year old son understand geometry. My son felt so much more comfortable in math after just two sessions with Rich. It was well worth it!

Rich did a great job tutoring my son. He was very patient and was able to determine what knowledge gaps existed and fill those in.
