About Richard

Hello:

Clarity. Deep Subject Knowledge. Interaction. Fun. Learning. Mastery!
Is this what you expect from a tutor? If so, please contact me.

Here's some information on the various areas I tutor.

Spanish: We'll have lots of fun speaking. You just can't learn without speaking. We'll put a strong grammar foundation in place. You'll understand the structure, then apply it. I'll give you secrets to fluency that will move you forward fast. My experience with Spanish includes the following:
a. I minored in Spanish in college;
b. I spoke Spanish only to my own children for 15 years;
c. I have worked in Mexico and Venezuela at different times in the logistics industry and conducting internal financial audits, working solely in Spanish with local nationals.
d. I have traveled for pleasure to various countries, including Chile, Argentina, Guatemala, Spain, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

English: Writing and speaking clearly forces you to think clearly. Clear thinking makes you more persuasive. Reading carefully opens up new worlds of insight. How powerful is that? English may be the most powerful language on Earth. Tell me what aspect of it you want to improve on and let's get to work. It will be work. And you'll like it!

Business: Take advantage of my MBA from one of the nation's top programs (Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business, the oldest MBA program in the country, often rated #1 globally by US News & World Report, The Financial Times, The Economist). Finance. Marketing. Operations. Strategy. Let's dig in so you can succeed. I'll make sure you understand the language and logic of business. My approach is to simplify and then apply additional dimensions of complexity.

I look forward to working with you! Let me know when you want to start.

Regards,

Richard

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Knowledgeable Spanish Tutor

Richard is punctual and pleasant. He works very hard to understand the areas where my daughter struggles with Spanish. He clearly has my daughter's best interests at heart to help her overcome her areas of misunderstandings. He does try to keep the lesson light but productive sprinkling in praise at appropriate intervals.
