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.

Puts in the extra effort!
Richard spent lots of time working through very hard graduate level mathematical problems in stochastic processes, and helped us pass an exam that was literally a life saver. He definitly puts in the extra effort, and I highly recommend Richard.

Very knowledgeable and helpful
Needed help with understanding math and finance problems. He was very helpful in providing a detailed explanation for each equestion. I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their skills.
Joel, 5 lessons with RichardTutor responded:This student, who was having difficulty with basic concepts in finance, just wrote me that he got 96% on the problem set we discussed.
Knowledge, patient and provided honest assessment
I just started with Richard and felt comfortable with the lesson and information he provided. As I advance in my course work this semester and next, I look forward to reaching out to him again.

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.
