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."

Richard was great and very knowledgeable

Richard helped my son a lot. I'm so glad we found him. We will be using him again once my son gets his tests back from his teacher so they can go over what he got wrong. Thanks again Richard!
