Bio

Everyone has the capacity to learn, develop and be successful if provided the right opportunity and support. Of course, each student is unique. However, with appropriate expectations in place, every student will strive to improve and achieve success!

Everyone has the capacity to learn, develop and be successful if provided the right opportunity and support. 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 thirteen years of teaching/tutoring Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, GED 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!

SAT Review /help

Richard was awesome! He reviewed my daughters knowledge and explained concepts in a clear and understanding way. They went over problem solving techniques and ideas. Understanding the graphs and what the lines meant. How to use information given a sentence. Very good tutor.

Alice, 10 lessons with Richard

Very knowledgeable and kind.

Excellent! Richard evidently has many years of experience teaching Algebra 2 and could break down the information clearly enough for my son to understand the content and begin to tackle problems independently and with confidence.

Rebecca , 6 lessons with Richard

Great experience

Richard was a big help to our son. He was well prepared, prompt, organised, understanding and got results. We would highly recommend him.

Kathleen , 7 lessons with Richard

Knowledgeable with great teaching style

After explaining what help I needed Richard was quickly able to explain concepts and come up with logical shortcuts. He made sure I understood each step before moving to the next problem. Extremely helpful and solid math session.

Gail, 43 lessons with Richard

Great tutor

Richard is patient and excellent at working with a student to learn math strategies. He is a great math tutor and can work with non-traditional and adult learners.

April, 7 lessons with Richard

Knowledgeable and kept things on track

My son needs to review some math concepts before starting Algebra this year at high school. He appeared unsure of himself after completing sections of a summer review packet so I quickly surmised it would best to have a tutor go over this work. At this first session Richard (Andy) and my son went through several pages from the packet. Richard picked up on some gaps that needed to be reinforced tonight and at the next session. It was important for me to know that my son was on track by learning this material (math gaps) now. Ultimately, it will also boost his confidence when he starts this class in a few weeks. Thank you Richard.
