Bio

For 11 years I have tutored English, writing, and US culture to over 350 Microsoft international transfers and their family members, and in the past three of those 11, to dozens of middle and high school students as well.

ACCURATE COMPREHENSION AND EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION ARE KEY TO TOP PERFORMANCE AT BOTH WORK AND SCHOOL. Therefore, I carefully coach listening/reading comprehension and writing/speaking skills using a variety of techniques to teach and inspire my client-students to learn...

For 11 years I have tutored English, writing, and US culture to over 350 Microsoft international transfers and their family members, and in the past three of those 11, to dozens of middle and high school students as well.

ACCURATE COMPREHENSION AND EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION ARE KEY TO TOP PERFORMANCE AT BOTH WORK AND SCHOOL. Therefore, I carefully coach listening/reading comprehension and writing/speaking skills using a variety of techniques to teach and inspire my client-students to learn and create new material, complete assignments, and enjoy the process of doing so as much as possible.

TO ACHIEVE the highest marks and performance ratings I guide them how to:
-Observe and analyze logically and comprehensively
-Express answers, points, and insights in correct, succinct English for maximum impact

MY FEEDBACK: In addition to giving feedback throughout our sessions, I type notes to keep track of the grammar, pronunciation, comprehension, and word and phrasing choice errors and corrections as well as standard principles and best practices we discuss. After each session, I email those notes to the student-client for review and reference.

MY TEACHING STYLE: I value each person I work with as a very special human being. I recognize that everyone has a unique set of learning challenges and situational demands, so I endeavor to formulate and apply, and reformulate as needed, the most fitting combination of learning styles and methods – and most importantly, do so patiently.

MY EDUCATION: I earned my BA in history from Indiana University-Bloomington. I received an MSCI and an honorary doctorate from Maharishi European Research University (MERU) in recognition of the courses I had taken and taught in the field of my life-long passion of raising individual consciousness and intelligence to their highest levels so that students, working adults, and the retired may enjoy their lives to the fullest and contribute maximum to the peace, progress, and prosperity of their communities, nations, and world. MERU’s outstanding

Knowledgeable tutor

Very helpful in guiding me in writing my essays. I am so glad that I asked him to help me. I would rate him 6 stars if I could. Very patient and knowledgeable. He has a bunch of experience in writing essays and with English in general and this shines through to the lesson.

Yechiel, 7 lessons with Rick

Well-prepared for the lesson and great feedback on writing samples

Rick was very specific with his suggestions. He complimented my writing content, yet kindly pointed out my mistakes. He then explained grammatical rules that would help me understand why my mistakes were wrong. He also encouraged me to have questions for him to help focus the lessons.

Wonderful and accurate

It is my first experience with online learning. I found Mr. H. provides good and organized way to manage assignments. I like an idea of having textbook, giving homework, feedback and reviews. He is pleasant, well organized, professional. I'm glad to have this option of extra study for my daughter. I recommend this teacher highly.

A good teacher, helps me to understand U.S. culture

The course is customized based on my requirement. And Rick can always dive deep in each topic, providing some culture background for me to better understand U.S.
