About Richard

My name is Richard. I am currently a 5th Grade Math and Science teacher at a local University Model school. The 3-day a week University Model allows me some free days each week to consider other educational pursuits. I am currently a part time tutor at a local learning center where I have been employed since I moved from Virginia to North Carolina in 2011. I have experience tutoring students of all ages in reading, English, and math, in person and online. I also have pretty extensive experience with test prep, particularly SAT and ACT English, Reading, and Writing. I also privately tutor several students from the school I teach at in math. I have been working with one student for about two years now and I am pleased to see her continue to advance and expand her mathematical skills.

I consider myself a bridge between a student who is experiencing a subject or concept for the first time or struggling with comprehending a certain concept and the knowledge they need to have mastered that concept. The student may be overwhelmed with new information, or may just be having difficulty processing the information in a way that makes sense to them. I see my job as trying to find just the right method to meet that student's need to comprehend. I see myself as providing learning support that the student's classroom teacher doesn't have the opportunity to provide.

Since I have some days on which I am not available to tutor, I do require 24 hours notice of a desired tutoring session or a cancellation. I am happy to wait for a student who may be running behind and needs to join a tutoring session late, but after 15 minutes, I will usually assume a student is unavailable for the scheduled session. Please feel free to contact me for more information or to schedule a session.

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.

Bible Studies

In addition to being an experienced tutor- having tutored privately and in-center for at least 5 years now- I am also a teacher at a Christian school. I am a Bible-believing Christian and attend a church that is dedicated to biblical teaching and fellowship. I have served at that church as a Sunday School teacher and have attended numerous bible studies, and even led one or two when our usual leaders were absent.
