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.

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.

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.

Great Biology tutor

Very knowledgeable in Biology; simplified content. Richard is very professional and has a calm and patient demeanor. He even answered questions after the session via email! I rate him a 10/10!!

Lawrence, 1 lesson with Richard

An excellent tutor

Richard is very patient . He tries to understand the needs of the student and works with them. His experience over the years makes him very knowledgeable with the subject material.

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. Whether you are only looking to brush up on basic biology or study advanced biology/genetics classes, Mr. G. will give you a better appreciation and understanding of the material. You might as well message Mr. G. and set up a lesson to see if he fits your needs!

Incredible Biology Tutor!

Richard tutored my Freshman in high school in honors biology. Her grade has improved tremendously since she began working with him and she actually understands the material well now. She is confident and her attitude toward the subject has improved. He makes the effort prior to each session to learn the material and to be able to teach it in a way that is easy to understand and beneficial. He speaks to her like a professor and walks her through the subject matter and gives her time to absorb it. I feel that every hour he spends with her is valuable. He also teaches good study skills and does practice tests and problems. He emails her to respond to problems and questions prior to her tests. He is a fantastic tutor and we are so happy to have located such a high quality tutor using Wyzant.
