About Richard


Bio

I believe that math and science are based on simple concepts. Unfortunately, they are often presented in ways that make them seem overly complicated. “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”, is a quote attributed to Albert Einstein. I try to tutor by this principle. One of the keys is for the student to understand the important relationships of the topic. Then, the light bulb comes on.

I believe that math and science are based on simple concepts. Unfortunately, they are often presented in ways that make them seem overly complicated. “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”, is a quote attributed to Albert Einstein. I try to tutor by this principle. One of the keys is for the student to understand the important relationships of the topic. Then, the light bulb comes on.

My teaching/tutoring experience covers a wide range of settings including conventional classroom, one-on-one tutoring, group tutoring, and military instructor pilot. As a result, I see the importance of quickly assessing the tutoring goals and matching my instructional technique to the learning style of the student.
I am passionate about the fields of math and science. Because of that interest, my college degree is in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech. Since graduating almost three decades ago, I have been immersed in the practical application of those fields through military aviation and civilian engineering positions. I have also stayed abreast of the education system via formal teaching positions and tutoring over the past few years. One of my tutoring goals is for the student to appreciate the relevance of the material instead of merely seeing it as academic.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

The topics in Elementary Math are very practical for real life. In order for the student to be able to apply them usefully, the topics have to be comprehended. I teach them in this way instead of simply teaching math tricks and techniques.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I specialize in explaining math mechanics simply. A firm grasp of Algebra is essential because it is the basis for higher math and science courses. I use real world examples to make it applicable for the student.
Algebra 2,

Chemistry,

Chemistry

On the surface, Chemistry can be the toughest science to learn. In order to master it, the student has to understand the concepts and how they relate to each other. I bring out those concepts and relationships in simple ways. Then, the light bulb comes on.
Geometry,

Geometry

I specialize in explaining math mechanics simply. To properly understand Geometry, the student needs to understand the relationships between the equations and shapes.
Physics,

Physics

Physics can be the easiest science if it is presented correctly. My experience in Physics includes both teaching it and applying it in the real world. I have over a decade in Physics teaching/tutoring. In the real world, I have applied it as a military pilot and engineer.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Prealgebra does not have to be hard. It mainly involves how math is integrated into real world situations. I teach students how to use common sense while applying the math techniques.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus is really a mixture of a variety of higher math topics. For success, the student has to transition from topic to topic. I have tutored this course for several years and am able to guide a student through this process.
SAT Math

SAT Math

SAT math is a bit different than regular high school classroom math. It requires an analytical and agile thought process. I teach the students how to think and process information quickly for success.
