The University of Florida (Master's)
Dear Future Student;
Over the course of a twenty year career as a writer and teacher, I have learned a lot about writing and the teaching of writing. My students have included every age group from middle school to university students and have ranged in age from 12 to 60. I have taught many international students from China, India and the Middle-East and Europe. My own education includes an an MA in English Literature from The University of Florida, and a BA in English Education from Saint Leo University. As a high-school student, I placed in the top 3% in the nation on my SAT verbal scores. In addition, I have published a book with tips for writers, available through Amazon.com.
An active writer with two off-Broadway musicals and a novel to my credit, I am also an actor and singer, and have auditioned for many of the top casting directors in New York City, so I absolutely know and live with the performance anxieties that every writer and speaker faces, and I can coach you through those as well.
I believe in lifelong learning. It is never too early or too late to get better at writing and speaking, and I am always working to improve myself even as I work to help others be their best selves. Let's get better together. Dear Future Student;

Richard is right on subject, teaching reading and writing skills to my son. Very friendly and interactive lessons so far.
My daughter felt comfortable with the tutor and he showed patience and guidance with her subject matters. We will definitely call Richard for future tutoring.
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.
My experience in public speaking and performance comes primarily from my studies as an actor. I have studied speech and monologues at Matthew Corozine Studios and The Barrow Group, and I have performed in front of hundreds of people. In addition, I have presented academic speeches at The League for Innovation in my role as an English Professor. I can help clients with performance as well as performance anxiety.
