I can help you come to grips with challenges in physics, chemistry, math and related subjects (see list of subjects). I am available to tutor students at all levels, up to and including grad. school. I have experience tutoring elementary and high school, ACT, SAT, college, MCAT, and graduate school. Whether you are struggling with material, or if you are an advanced student looking for a complete understanding, I can help you. I am passionate about teaching these subjects, but I realize that they don't come easily to all students. When tutoring, I make every effort to relate to students at their level and present topics in an understandable and approachable way.
For students who are struggling with difficult classes, do not despair! A poor teacher or lecturer or difficult curriculum does not spell disaster, if you're able to get help. I have aided hundreds of students come to grips with difficult and challenging materials.
I have degrees in Physics and Chemical Physics. My graduate training was at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a top-notch science and engineering school. I have many years teaching experience, in college, grad. school and high school. For the last four years, I taught at a private school in chicagoland, where I headed the science department, redesigned the science curriculum and designed a rebuild of the science labs. At the same time I taught college classes and tutored students individually.

Excellent tutor who delivers impressive results!
Richard has been tutoring my son in high school algebra for about four months and has demonstrated that he is very proficient with the subject matter and, most importantly, he is able to communicate the information effectively to the student. With Richard's tutoring, my son significantly improved his math test scores by 20%. This result is even more impressive because my son is a "reluctant learner" who particularly dislikes math. Before I found Richard, I had used other tutors who delivered no results. Somehow Richard has been able to get through to my son and has helped him succeed. Also, as an added bonus, my son really likes working with him. As a second added bonus, Richard is also a science expert and he was able to help my son with high school physics, when needed. I am very grateful to Richard and I would highly recommend him as an excellent tutor who delivers impressive results.Eileen, 111 lessons with Richard
Very Knowledgeable and Patient tutor
I was preparing an interview but my English was not fluent. He helped to improve my pronunciation and expression. Also, simulate an interview with him. It was very effective for me.JAMES, 9 lessons with Richard
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
I'm so glad we found Richard to help my daughter prep for the ASVAB. She's always struggled academically and procrastinated when it came to schoolwork but Richard has been reliably and patiently working with her. Now she actually looks forward to their lessons!Julie, 19 lessons with Richard
Very good tutor.
Richard quickly grasped where my daughter's needs were and instead of simply telling her the answers, he took time to wait for her to arrive at answers so that the learning was her own.Margaret, 13 lessons with Richard
Very perceptive tutor
Richard worked with my daughter on pre-calc. She has a lot of gaps in learning and he was able to help her fill those in. It takes someone skilled to identify those and not just teach from the beginning.Carole, 11 lessons with Richard
Help with algebra 2
Took extra step in requesting to have me send him my sons material he was learning prior to tutor session so he could be prepared to begin teaching the concepts he needed help with. Was helpful and patient with teaching and helped prepare my son for what he needed.Ally, 1 lesson with Richard
Went above and beyond to help my son
Richard prepared for each session by reaching out to my son's chemistry teacher. He sent me (the mom) updates on my son's progress and sent a study tips for my son's final exam. He is a great tutor!Lynn, 43 lessons with Richard
Richard is patient and he explains well
My daughter always looked forward to the lessons. She and Richard connected well. Lessons frequently lasted more than an hour because they kept going as long as was needed. I am glad we found Richard!Rachel, 12 lessons with Richard
My son said that Richard explained the physics concept to him well. He understands the topics better after reviewing them with Richard. We would use Richard again.Thao, 5 lessons with Richard
Very knowledgable and helpful!
Richard was of great help to my daughter in completing a physics assignment. He even followed up after the tutoring session and provided a link to additional material. My daughter looks forward to working with him again!Susan, 9 lessons with Richard
