About Richard

I am a biology researcher. I'm not only interested in the sciences, though--I went to the University of Maryland, where I received bachelor's degrees in both history and biology. I love learning in both the humanities and the sciences, and I hope that this comes across in my tutoring! I am very glad to be able to help students break through barriers that can seem impassable, only to realize they had the potential the whole time!

I have some informal experience tutoring, and I have learned how to help students who feel stuck. I am still young enough to remember what being in school is like, and I know that sometimes assignments can seem daunting. But I am confident that, working one-on-one, we can find a way to break any task down into reasonable portions and make our way through.

After earning my degrees, I worked in multiple bioresearch fields. This broad experience helps me to explain difficult concepts with real-world examples. I can help with anything from subcellular to ecological, and I can coach students through tasks involving rote memorization, science writing, data analysis, and everything in between.

I have been a constant reader since I was very young. This is the best way to build a vocabulary, feed the imagination, and appreciate classic literature. Knowing the magic of reading a good book or written work is essential to developing one's own writing. I show students how these aspects interlock, and how to use them to reach their full potential.

American history is, amazingly, always changing. There is a basis of widely known fact, and this information often simply needs to be memorized. However, laid on these facts are constant new discoveries and new theories. I help students to memorize the facts while keeping their mind flexible to multiple interpretations of those facts. This flexibility is necessary for many American history writing assignments.

I am glad to have this opportunity to work with individual students. I think this is one of the most efficient and exciting ways to learn. We will go far together!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

I have a degree in history, with a focus on American history, from the University of Maryland. I wrote an honor's thesis on the foundation and early years of the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD.

Biology

I have a degree in general biology from the University of Maryland. I have worked as a research assistant in a neuroimmunology laboratory, a private research firm, and a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration laboratory.

Study Skills

I have developed my study skills through a lifetime as a student. I ultimately earned a BS in Biology and a BA in History, so I know and can teach the skills needed to succeed in the humanities and the sciences. Whether a student needs help with a skill specific to a given subject, or with general time management, I can provide the necessary assistance, encouragement and accountability.
