About Richard

My approach to tutoring places heavy emphasis on insuring that the student understands the basic theory underlying the subject matter. Once that is established, problem sets are completed to drive home the theory.
My knowledge base was obtained through strong academic training, business experience, significant tutoring and teaching experience and currently active as a substitute teacher in the middle schools of Palm beach County.
I am patient, understanding and teach at the pace of student`s ability to absorb the subject matter.

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.

Accounting

I have many years of experience working with financial statements, as well as teaching and tutoring in accounting and finance.

Algebra 1

I serve as a substitute teacher in the middle schools in Palm Beach County in the math classes.

Business

I have 40 years of business experience in management consulting and senior executive positions. In addition, I teach a course on Leadership, Team Building and Business Communications in an MBA Program in the college of business at a major university.

Career Development

I teach a college course in Leadership at the MBA level. It includes a segment on Developing Leadership Skills, which is key to career development. I have served as a mentor to many entry level and middle managers as their careers progressed.

English

I assist students in improving their English speaking capabilities by speaking with them and correcting as we proceed, reviewing with them commonly used expressions, working with them as they make presentations,etc. Each student is evaluated prior to acceptance to insure that i can assist them. Based on this initial evaluation, a specific program is prepared.
I help students improve their public speaking capabilities by focusing on audience analysis, speech preparation, speech delivery, and critique and help.

ESL/ESOL

I specialize in assisting foreign nationals improve their English skills. In the past year I have worked with a South Korean, a Lithuanian, a Colombian, a Swiss national and a Brazilian.

Marketing

I have an MBA from MIT. Included in this program were many marketing courses. I served as the Director of U,S Marketing for the largest accounting/consulting firm in the world. As part of my consulting practice, I advise many clients on their marketing programs.

Public Speaking

I taught a course on Business Communications for five summers in the MBA program at the College of Business at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. This included Audience Analysis, Speech Preparation, and Speech Presentation. I currently tutor foreign nationals in giving presentations. I was a management consultant for more than 30 years during which time I gave hundreds of presentations and speeches.
