About Richard

My background is in engineering and related fields including mathematics and sciences. Specifically, I am proficient and highly skilled in Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, SAT MATH, Trigonometry, Geometry, Calculus, and Physics. For the last 23 years I have been CEO of a local Internet Company and have the hands-on experience of Marketing, HTML programing, JAVA and Webdesign. I have taught at the college level at FDU and Brookdale, taught many Adult Education Classes and still conduct hands-on seminars concerning Marketing and Branding.

I really enjoy working with students. The best feeling I have is when I leave a tutoring session, and I know the student has a better understanding of the material than they did before. I feel that with my easy going nature and a way to explain things so students will learn, students will gain more confidence in the material and become better students.

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.


I am a USCF rated player. I have been player for over 35 years. I also help run the Barnes & Noble Eatontown Chess Club.

Computer Programming

Programming background includes major projects using Fortran, C, Assembler, Pascal, and most recently JAVA and Perl. Training of support staff in these languages was a good portion of my job.

Written programs from classroom work for compliers, Perl applications for websites and actual code in use in communications Satellites.

Computer Science

Received a Master's in Computer Science from Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Senior Systems Engineer for Booz•Allen and Hamilton Inc for 5 years. This support included participation in TIMs, design reviews and comment consolidation meetings.

Public Speaking

I am a Certified Toastmaster. I've spoken in front of small business groups, 1000-person presentations, and everywhere in-between. For me, public speaking is very nerve wracking, but I've learned how to become comfortable and very effective.


As a business owner for the last 24 years I use Quickbooks on a daily basis. I use it for invoicing, keeping track of billable hours and maintaining customer contacts. I also use it to prepare end of year reports for my accountant.

Web Design
