About Richard

Richard, CFA, CMT, worked on Wall Street for over 30 years, most recently as a recognized equity analyst covering technology stocks. As a second career, he has become a professional tutor specializing in verbal skills including test prep. For most of his life, Richard has shown an unusual ability to connect with kids. His patient and encouraging approach to working with young people, based on sound psychological principals, teaches kids skills they will need to be successful in academics and in life. A voracious reader, Richard's avid curiosity has driven him to develop a broad and deep knowledge of many topics. He is well prepared to help children and adolescents who may have gotten off track or wish to improve academic performance, including SAT/ACT verbal scores. Richard has positively impacted many children’s lives through tutoring, coaching and mentoring.

Richard scored in the top percentile of the SAT verbal section despite having dyslexia. He graduated from Dartmouth College with a focus on Government, with minors in English and Computer Science. He received an MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business. In his professional life, Richard was one of the first 8 people in the world to receive both a CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) and a CMT (Chartered Market Technician), professional designations requiring 3 years each to complete. In addition, he was selected as the top software analyst in 2004 by Bloomberg Magazine. Richard has a way of making economics interesting. His background as an undergraduate, graduate student and as an investment professional, including consistently following the global economy for over 30 years, has prepared him well to understand and explain how the complex systems like the economy work. Course work to earn his CFA/CMT designations, analytic insights derived from a career as an equity analyst on Wall Street, coupled with a successful approach to tutoring provided Richard a rigorous preparation for coaching students.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

Working as an equities analyst with a focus on tech, I have accumulated a detailed picture of history and especially financial events. My major at Dartmouth College was government, which draws heavily from a knowledge of history. Also the focus of my MBA at NYU's Stern School was closely connected to history.

Economics

In high school, Richard scored in the top percentile of the SAT verbal section. He graduated from Dartmouth College with a focus on Government, with minors in English and Computer Science. He received an MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business. In his professional life, Richard was one of the first 8 people in the world to receive both a CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) and a CMT (Chartered Market Technician), professional designations requiring 3 years each to complete.

Course work to earn his CFA/CMT designations, analytic insights derived from a career as an equity analyst on Wall Street, coupled with a successful approach to tutoring provided Richard a rigorous preparation for coaching students.

Reading

After an initial struggle, I became an avid reader and explored the school library thoroughly. By 5th grade, I was the fastest reader in the school. In high school, I scored in the top 1% of all SAT scores for verbal skills.

Perhaps more importantly, I am very patient with kids and usually develop a positive connection with them that allows me to teach them in an enjoyable way. I think reading is the key to living many lifetimes through the adventures of others who were willing to share their knowledge and experience by writing books.

Writing

My background as a writer includes scoring in the 99th percentile for SAT verbal skills, a minor in English at Dartmouth, 17 years as an equity analyst writing research on tech companies for institutional investors and a strong story-telling history with kids of all ages.
