About Rick

I am a business professional with 20 years experience and 2 Master of Arts degrees (MBA and Applied Economics) as well as nine years adjunct instructor experience (Valencia College and UCF) in both Statistics and Economics. I have achieved a Master of Arts degree in Business Administration (MBA) and a Master of Arts degree in Applied Economics (MAAE).

I am very patient and able to bring complex topics down to a level that is more easily understood and comprehended. In fact my instructor reviews (which can be viewed if desired) confirm a great deal of my students thought I was excellent at explaining what can be difficult concepts. A few of my students actually described how my class was their second (or even third) time taking that class (obviously different instructors) and found my style allowed them to now grasp and understand the topics.

I tutor primarily because I have the experience and knowledge to help those having difficulty but do not want the student to be burdened by a rate that is difficult. For that reason I charge an extremely fair rate and a rate that is significantly lower than others with similar experience and knowledge. The ability to help a student who is having difficulty in a subject and help the student pass a difficult class is very rewarding and is the reason I tutor part-time.

I welcome small groups and the same hourly rate applies. Therefore, it is certainly acceptable to get a small group together from the same class and split up the hourly cost. My specialties are Statistics and Economics and I am confident I can help you in these subjects.

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.

Economics

I have taught, and still currently teach, Micro (ECO2013) and Macro (ECO2023) Economics at college. I am confident I can help you better understand the material and how it all works together to see the "big picture".

Statistics

I am very knowledgeable in Statistics, having taught STA2023 at UCF several years ago, and I have tutored many in Statistics over the years as well. I am very confident I can explain the material in such a way where the student can not only improve their grade but have a much better understanding of the material and the results.

Patient and focused — According to Latraia, Rick is just what she needed and at the right time. Latraia (Trai) graduated from UCF before moving to South Carolina. She was soon told that her diploma was incomplete and she had to take and pass an economics course, including two major exams and a final exam in just two weeks. Rick was able to quickly zero in on Trai's exact needs and establish a focus on specific topics t ...
