About Richard

Everyone has the capacity to learn, develop and mature if given the right opportunity and motivation. Of course, each student is unique. However, with appropriate expectations in place, every student will strive to improve and achieve success! My goal is to discover what each student needs, and supply the ingredients necessary for each student to maximize his or her potential.

I have had the pleasure of working with students who have a wide variety of learning styles. The development of effective strategies for the unique needs of the individual student is my area of expertise.

My teaching experience includes over ten years of teaching/tutoring Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, GED Prep, State Proficiency Prep as well as SAT/ACT Prep. I have earned a Master's Degree in Education as well as a Bachelor's Degree in both Mathematics and Business.

As I place expectations on my students, I place more expectations on myself. In order to ensure that I am fulfilling these expectations, I welcome any feedback. This helps me to make adjustments and to maximize my skills as an educator. As a result, I can offer the best possible tutoring services to my students.

I will travel to places that are conducive and convenient for the individual. You provide the time, date and place, and I'll provide whatever is necessary for academic success!

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.

ACT Math

Over the past ten years I have helped students prepare for the ACT. In addition to studying the material, the focus has been on test-taking strategies, organization and time management.

Algebra 1

I have over ten years of experience teaching Algebra I. Also, I have earned a Master's Degree in Education as well as a Bachelor's Degree in both Mathematics and Business. In addition, I am a certified secondary math instructor in Connecticut.

Basketball

My qualifications include nine years coaching boys and girls basketball teams from the junior leagues up to high school varsity. Players under my tutelage have shown accelerated growth in mastering the fundamentals along with advanced concepts. In addition, I am a student of the game who continues to search for new ideas and methods of helping rookies and veterans achieve success. Besides coaching, I played basketball at the high school and college intramural levels.

Elementary Math

I have seven years of experience working with elementary math learners.

Study Skills

During my years of high school and college, one of my strengths has been testing. In addition, I have been assisting students with test preparation for more than ten years. Currently, I teach math at a high school where test-taking is one of the primary goals. I have always enjoyed perfecting strategies behind taking tests.
