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.

Same hourly rate applies for individuals or small groups. Get 3, 4, or 5 students from the same class and split the hourly cost!!
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 that she could understand. Trai tells me that she is well on her way to completing her economics requirement and will soon be back in Columbia, South Carolina, with a "legitimate" diploma. She says a huge weight has been taken off her shoulders, and that she could never have done it with only personal studying. Working with Rick has given her the self-confidence that she needed to complete her degree requirement. We are very lucky to have found Rick and that he was able to make himself available to Trai, sometimes at late hours. Our thanks go to WyzAnt for the wonderful tutors they provide and especially to Rick W. for his outstanding service to Trai!
Rick did such an amazing job teaching me something that is difficult for me and put it in terms that I could understand. Great lesson!
He explains all of the technical jargon into layman's terms so that you can get a better understanding of what you are doing. His experience with statistics is definitely shown in the way that he teaches.
Rick is an excellent tutor. He listens to the problems and gives a detailed explanation.
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.
I have taught Micro (ECO2013) and Macro (ECO2023) Economics at college level for about 9 years as well as tutoring many successfully in the subject. I am confident I can help you better understand the material and how it all works together to see the "big picture".
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.
