About Richard

I have been a freelance writer and writing instructor for over 30 years. I have taught writing in elementary school and currently teach writing to adults. In addition I have written over 50 books. Many of them are history and biography for young adults, as well as business, writing, public speaking and self-help books for the adult market. Currently, I work in elementary school teaching piano to approximately 15 students per week, teach bird watching classes to adults, and play piano at a pre-school program twice weekly.

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.

Piano

I am currently teaching several piano students in Fairfield County. One of the students is a seven year old beginner. We work on the Alfred instructional approach to her instruction. Another student is a young man in his 20s. He writes hip hop music and is trying to increase his knowledge of reading music so he can compose more pieces. In addition, I work with a program called KEYS. We tutor students in elementary school, as volunteers, in Bridgeport, CT. Currently, I am tutoring approximately 12 students.

Public Speaking

I have taught public speaking to young people and adults for the past 25 years. My courses are currently being taken by people who work for the government and in for-profit companies. In each course, my emphasis is to help students feel more relaxed and deal with their anxiety so they can present the best talk possible. Then I instruct them on various techniques, such as the use of their eyes, the use of body language, and the use of vocal energy to deliver information as effectively as possible. Finally, I teach students effective methods for using visual aids and handling question-and-answer sessions.
