Excellent Tutor!
Excellent tutor, Richard helped me to understand Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra and Ordinary Differential equations. He provided great insight and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him to find the answers to my questions. Richard's concise explanations for abstract concept helped me better understand the material and make connections. Richard was also willing to answer questions about the field of Engineer and give helpful advice for pursuing a career. His insight into the industry was valuable and always appreciated.

Excellent Pre Calculs tutor for my son
Richard prepped my son on precalculus for finals, and did a great job. He is knowledgeable, patient excellent, and reviewed subjects in advance and worked on problem solving. He gives very detailed explanations of the subject matter.

Knowledgeable, patient, well informed, professional
Richard is exactly what our daughter needs to help with grade 10 Honors Math. Besides going over Algebra 2, he gives her the intuition and big picture behind the math concept which is not well presented in school. Her confidence in math is improving with his help. His lesson summaries are exceptional and very detailed.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Richard helped with the concepts I learned in my Discrete Structures class. He was able to simplify and explain the concepts an problems I had very clearly. I had trouble with group theory and modular arithmetic, yet Richard made the concepts simple and understandable.

EXCELLENT tutor, highly recommend
My daughter (Junior in HS) switched to AP Physics 2 months into school year and had to catch up quickly. Richard was fantastic with subject matter and taking the time to make her comfortable. We would absolutely use Richard again if she needs help.

Highly knowledgeable, experienced and kind
We highly recommend Richard and feel lucky to have found him. He is working with my daughter on SAT prep and though they have only met twice, I can see that he has a winning approach to teaching the material. He is clear in his explanations, has a very good understanding of the test mechanics and works closely with the student to make sure they are comfortable with the pace and the material. Richard is very generous with his knowledge (not everybody is), and I find this aspect of his tutoring style very appealing. He seems genuinely dedicated and invested in making my daughter succeed. I appreciate it very much.

Richard is a highly qualified and knowledgeable teacher!
Richard has a lot of experience in both: tutoring and business fields. He has an extensive knowledge about the top MBA programs and universities as well as about requirements for an application process. Richard has developed various strategies for approaching GMAT test and he is very methodological in tutoring. I'm looking forward to working with Richard to improve my GMAT score and prepare for an application process for MBA program.

Richard did a great job in explaining linear algebra. He broke down difficult subject matter into small sub problems and explained things well. He also prepares notes and will help you with any problem. I was able to understand good amount of linear algebra from the session.

Experienced and knowledgeable tutor
I am a physics major and Richard helped me in the courses "Intro to Modern Physics" and "Classical Mechanics". Our sessions included homework help and exam prep, and Richard also helped me write a term paper. He is extremely experienced in the field and as a tutor, always punctual and organized. I've met with Richard about a dozen times, each session for about 90 minutes. Topics covered included Special Relativity, Lagrangian Mechanics, Newtonian Mechanics, Angular & Linear momentum, Energy and Work... All at an advanced mathematical level that incorporated calculus and differential equations. Richard helped me succeed in both of these courses and I look forward to continuing to work with him in the future. I strongly suggest using Richard as a math or physics tutor at any level.

excellent physics and math tutor
Richard has helped my 10 yea-old daughter as well as son (14 years old). He prepared my daughter to get high score in Math in SSAT. He has taught my son high school math & physics and prep for AMC. My kids really got benefit from his tutoring. Richard is a very knowledgeable and experienced tutor. He can discuss and teach anything that my kids want to learn in math and physics field. Especially I want to thank him for connecting me to MIT where I was able to get a computer science tutor for my son. Thank you so much, Richard, and keep up the good work!
