About Richard

I taught English/Writing for over forty years (!) at junior high, high school and college level in a variety of settings and locations: Oregon, New York City, Minneapolis and in public and independent schools. I still love to teach and provide a custom-designed, compassionate, highly interesting and wise approach to tutoring students.

My tutoring experience includes working with: special needs students (particularly ADHD, autism); students with organizational and time-management issues ("backpack issues"!); students who lack motivation and confidence in their ability of learn; students preparing for: high school rigor, ACT/SAT prep and college applications.

I am a freelance writer, as well as a teacher/tutor. Several of my essays and commentaries have appeared in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune and other publications.

I have extensive experience and knowledge as a classroom teacher. I know what students experience in schools.

As a teacher, I have worked collaboratively with Special Education colleagues. Also, my wife is a public school Special Education teacher, working primarily with autistic and ADD/ADHD students.

I have very flexible hours: weekdays, weekends, days and evenings.

I am able/willing to meet in homes, public libraries and even coffee shops -- wherever the student's comfort level is strongest.
