About Richard

I presently teach and tutor various Biology and Math courses at at local colleges in the area. I am a Certified Level 1 Tutor with 12 years of experience teaching and tutoring undergraduate, high school and middle school students.
I also enjoy helping parents who home school their children.
I especially enjoy working with older students who want to continue their education

I have found most students need to hear material twice. Rarely do they fully understand nor appreciate the first time a lesson is presented to them. They still need to have the information presented at least one more time and maybe more.
The sciences require a new way of thinking for the traditional student to fully appreciate it. This is where I can be beneficial.

My usual approach to tutoring is to first get the students to enjoy themselves and feel comfortable with learning. Once this is mastered, the learning process becomes much easier. I try to find out where the problems with the material exists and organize an individualized approach to address the issue. I have found most students need some coaching on study skills and concentration. Finally I relate the material to each student's life and show the importance of what they are learning.

Personable, motivated, and easy to understand. — Going into genetics as my intended major, Mr. G. is definitely a tutor worth my time. He helps tailor every lesson to best fit each individual student. He starts out by discovering first how much you understand the concepts and then you both go from there. Depending on what your goals are, Mr. G. will take them into consideration and guide you through the material that is necessary to cover. Wheth ...
