Physics, Mathematics, Business, and Engineering, the STEM disciplines, can be difficult subjects even for advanced high school and university students alike. Why not get top-tier tutoring in your subject area as well as those you may be taking concurrently, and greatly augment your chances for educational and career success?

Your tutor is a retired college educator possessing university training in each of the disciplines of Physics (BS), Engineering (BS/MS), Mathematics (MS), and Business (MBA and Doctoral-O.R.). I am sufficiently trained to help you up through the 2nd year of graduate study in Physics, Mathematics, Statistics, Engineering, Business, and Operations Research.

In 1987, I was invited to the James J. Forrestal Lab (PPPL) of Princeton University to present a short talk on how to contain high energy fusion plasmas in the Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor. As serendipity would have it, my solution turned out to be correct, and the approach was implemented both there and in the M.I.T. Versator.

I especially enjoy working with graduate and doctoral students. If you are studying at the advanced level, especially in Probability or Operations Research, and need help beyond your graduate colleagues or teaching assistants, then email me. This is in-depth tutoring, for the serious student.

As an adjunct to my usual instruction, I am also available for tutoring in courses that may benefit the Engineering student: Materials Science, Solid State Physics, Fluid Mechanics, and Basic Control Theory (Laplace transforms). Contact me if you're having difficulty in any of these educational pursuits.

My further tutoring skills include working with topics in Symbolic Logic, Mathematical Proofs, and Truth Tables.

I am not the least expensive professional here. That's so we don't waste each other's time. Choosing the path of knowledge is far better than choosing the path of non-knowledge. Or paraphrasing the remarks of a Harvard president, "If you think education is expensive, try ignorance."

Elementary Math

I'll schedule you in for at least one hour. I supply notes, on my own time, after each session. Why not learn the Mathematics that got us to the Moon, the way it was taught years ago? Starting from the 12 x 12 times table to the fractions, numerical division, and the representation of decimals, you get a solid understanding of numbers. As for Common Core, and Singapore Math, forget about them, unless you want to build radios and watches.
Elementary Science

Elementary Science

I'll schedule you in for at least one hour. I supply notes, on my own time, after each session. We'll build up the Sciences starting from the quarks to the nucleus, to the atom. From there to basic Chemistry, the bonding of atoms to make molecules, then onward to more complex systems, We even talk about basic Physics, the planets and touch upon Astronomy and Astrophysics. In effect - we answer the HOW of what we are.

History

Philosophy

Philosophy

Before we have a session, please check my cancellation policy as of 08/01/2021. We'll follow that policy. Philosophy covers a range of topics. I work closely with students who struggle in the LOGIC portion of this discipline, to discover the truth table functionals of an argument, and to provide the reasoning behind the valid conclusions of categorical syllogisms. This is also applicable to John Stuart Mill's Method of Probabilistic Inquiry for uncovering scientific truths, or at least inductive scientific support of theories. In the more "reading-based" courses of Western Philosophy, such as Kant, Nietzsche, Hegel, Hume (my favorite), Russell (another favorite), and the ancient ones: Socrates, Aristotle and Plato, we delve into their formulations and discover their main theses and range of applications. Most importantly we attempt to understand whether they answer ANY existential question at all, and that is Science.

Extremely knowledgeable and patient!

We had a fantastic session. I got so much useful information, which will really help me in a paper I have to write. Thank you so much!

Elizabeth, 1 lesson with Richard

Highly proficient in Operations Management at the MBA level!

Professor V is an outstanding tutor/instructor! I'm currently enrolled in a rigorous Operations course (at the MBA level) yet Professor V was able to break complicated concepts down into rudimentary parts that I could easily understand. He is certainly one of the best, if not the best, tutor that I've had on this platform.

Terry, 4 lessons with Richard

Great tutor!

Excellent teacher. Knowledgeable, patient and professional at all times. Took the time to explain the concepts and provided follow up notes.

Oscar, 2 lessons with Richard

Amazing Tutor

Richard is a retired professor and was an incredible tutor for me in Managerial Econ as someone with no quant background. He was able to illuminate numerous concepts and formulas in a way that made it easy to understand. He also is great at doing accents and makes the lesson very fun and enjoyable. Highly recommend!!

A pleasure to work with

Prof. V. helped me with a quantitative methods class for a bachelor's degree in business. I was feeling completely overwhelmed before meeting with him. He put me at ease and addressed every issue I was battling with great patience and humor. He has been a pleasure to work with.

James, 9 lessons with Richard

Very enthusiastic tutor

Richard filled my holes in understanding a stats topic, then followed up by sending reference material to reinforce what he taught. I was very happy who the lesson.

John, 1 lesson with Richard

Prof. Rich is an excellent tutor and I would highly recommend him for those struggling with statistics and/or mathematics. He is a terrific resource with a wealth of knowledge.

Evan, 2 lessons with Richard

Amazing instructor

Student says, “Well, that was helpful.” Parent says, “Like Totally Excellent!!!” (with an air guitar in hand). Great communication and engagement of student; Encouraging and providing good positive, immediate reinforcement; First good learning on the topic, since the beginning of subject exposure. The student looks forward to sessions and is remembering WHY she loves math ~ after having the joy stripped away from years of battling old teaching structures and methods.

Karen, 12 lessons with Richard

Very helpful guy

Would definitely recommend this guy for any assistance you need for Physics he's a lot of help, and even spends time outside of lecture assisting you. Really knows his stuff.

Sean, 1 lesson with Richard

Very patient and knowledgeable

Had a great first lesson with Richard about Bayesian formulas. As an adult learner he was patient and helped me work through the problems on a high level. Thanks!
