Math & statistics instructor at your service!
I've taught a variety of math and statistics classes at Drake, DMACC and other colleges. There's no substitute for hard work, but sometimes additional instruction in a private setting can make all the difference!
I provide helpful math tutoring for West Des Moines and vicinity and prefer to meet at the WDM library, although other locations are possible. Topics I have tutored include: High School A.P. Statistics or College Statistics (a.k.a. "Business Analytics" in MBA programs) Algebra &...

Excellent Tutor!
We have been very pleased with Richard's tutoring! Our daughter is developing the skills she was lacking all due to the time he has spent with her. We are very happy with our choice! Update: In just a few weeks of tutoring our daughter's Algebra grade has already gone up!! Thanks Richard!

Knowledgable. Helped me with problems no one else could.
Reinforced the importance of thinking # of successes over # of outcomes. The tricky part is setting that up correctly. I need to find simpler ways to solve problems. I also should read through a problem first real quick, understand it, then break it down. I gained greater context of using combinations in a card setting. I also learned that I should formulate my questions better maybe beforehand. Specifically I also learned to write down the concept in english and then going from there instead of remembering formulas.

Above and Beyond
I reached out to Richard on a Sunday night to help my daughter with AP Calculus AB and when he realized they had a poor connection, he offered to come to our home because she had a test the next day and was in desperate need of help. He was at our house from 9 - 11 PM! Unbelievable. A huge shout out and thanks.

Excellent problem solver!
I really enjoyed Richard's tutorial on how to bypass lengthy steps to get straight to the results and build a representative graph used for statistical analyses. I highly recommend Richard!

Super Guy!!
He was available sort of last minute for me. Richard was patient and kind. Though there may have been moments of frustration from my end, he reassured me that I could get the problem that I was working on.

Great tutor!
Richard was a great help when I was at a frustrated and stressed out spot with statistics. He was patient, kind, and helped me begin to understand concepts I was ready to give up on. He also helped me feel comfortable with online tutoring when I was apprehensive.

Helpful and Accommodating
My daughter needed help with a new concept in calculus. Richard was able to meet with her within the time frame we requested and he helped my daughter understand the concept.

Statistics
Robert was very patient and very knowledgeable on the subject. He knows how to explain the material so that you can understand. There were concepts that I struggled with but Richard helped me to connect the dots. I will definitely use again!

Thank You
You took on a impossible task and worked with us. Thank you for your help. With little preparation, or information to work with, he worked with our son the very best he could. Thank you.

Very knowledgeable regarding statistics.
I came to Richard totally unconfident about my statistics final. By the end of our session, a lot of topics I was having difficulty with were cleared up and he made me aware of the mistakes that I was making, and how to resolve them!
