About Richard

My love for learning began at an early age; 1.5 years old when I started homeschool. I was writing in cursive, doing long division & multiplication even before Kindergarten. My mother boosted my love of math especially. She said to me, "If you can add everything up, including tax in your head before we get to the counter, you can have it." This was an average trip to the fast food restaurant for me!

My love for teaching began at 10 years old. When I was asked to do the Children's Word at church, I studied my Bible the night before, searching for the right verse to expound upon and deliver to my eagerly awaiting church mates! I started tutoring on a more scholastic level in high school. I would especially love Senior Week. During that week, we got to teach the class of our favorite subject, while the teacher traded places with us as the student.

I also tutored at Durham Technical Community College. My cousin went from a C to an A in Algebra under my tutelage. My Algebra professor entered my name for a $300 GE Math Scholarship. I won and used it to pay for my and my mother's tuition to Durham Tech!

I don't have any formal certifications for English; but I did take English 1 - 4 AP in high school with an cumulative average of 93 for all four years!

I have mostly on-the-job training as far as Windows goes. I worked for IBM from 1994 - 1998 as a contract worker through Manpower. And as I result, I never go to the techs at Best Buy or any other computer store. When my computer and/or laptops need upgrading OR crashes, I fix them myself.

I played the E-flat Alto Saxophone from grades 7 - 12. And was a member of a local Jazz band for 3 years. I have even played for a Bar Mitzvah once. I am active member of my high school's Alumni Band Marching Band and participate every year in parades with them.

I was on the Tennis Team in High School for 3 years. I lettered during my Senior Year. And, I continually play every year with the local team on a recreational level. My local mentor & coach is Joe Williams.

As your tutor, I promise that you'll have fun learning. What's the use of excelling in an area if the process is boring? Not only will be you be proud of your achievements, but you will also enjoy the journey. Choose me as your tutor and let's make learning and fun a symbiotic relationship!
