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.

Elementary Education

Reading

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.

History

American History,

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.
