About Rick

I've been a professional journalist my entire career. I worked as a reporter and copy editor for three daily newspapers and am currently a freelance senior writer for getAbstract, the world's largest producer of business book summaries. I am also the primary contributor to the getAbstract blog. I've been employed by Brauser Maimonides Academy in Hollywood for the last seven years, serving in a variety of positions including assistant P.E. instructor, substitute teacher and operations assistant. Previous to joining BMA, I was public relations director for one of the largest non-profit corporations in the Southeast and the managing editor of two national business magazines. I've also written many freelance newspaper articles and have tutored numerous students over the years.

As a tutor, my job is to improve a student's performance and build self-confidence. In my experience, I've found that many young people are overwhelmed by the idea of writing and believe they are incapable of achieving any degree of competency. Yes, good writing requires practice and dedication but it is a skill that can be acquired -- and perhaps even enjoyed! It's important for my students to understand that I will not complete their assignments for them. I will offer encouragement and guidance but ultimately the student will do all the writing. I love working with kids and derive great satisfaction from seeing them improve.

I played high school baseball, have coaching experience and love the game. Please feel free to contact me any time. I will respond promptly.
