I am a retired math teacher with a continued interest in math education and problem solving. I have a masters degree in mathematics from the University of NC Wilmington.
My style is adaptable to the educational needs of student including being patient or challenging depending on the student.
In the I have past taught all levels of students ability and even of different language skills
If your child is fearful or just needs some fine tuning for exams I will adapt to their needs. I can be gentle when necessary but will always attempt to excite the student by building their confidence. I do not tutor for the money. Math education is a passion for me

I can help in any high school level math especially advanced levels. A stuent is always made sure to understand the process from earlier steps rather than memorization with the hope that one is able to move forward on their own with continued classroom instruction.

If you need help before upcoming end of semester exams that is a specialty of mine.
For standardized tests like the GRE, I am forming a database of lessons and old sample questions to explain to each student the many different ways a concept is tested. As always the lessons are individualized to best meet the particular needs of every student.

Above and beyond

My son received AP CALC tutoring with Richard and was blown away by his thorough teaching and commitment to his mastery in prep for finals. Richard gave of himself in his own time preparing for the lesson and gathering resources for my son who will enter finals with confidence thanks to the dedication and expertise of this phenomenal instructor.

Logan, 1 lesson with Richard

Very Good Tutor

Dr. R. really helped me understand the concepts that we were learning in class better. He is patient and always checks to make sure that I am understanding what he is teaching. He also teaches me strategies that we have not learned in class so that I know multiple ways to complete a problem. My grades have really improved after tutoring with Dr. R. I definitely recommend him.

Rajarshi, 23 lessons with Richard

Hardworking and Committed Tutor

Richard has helped me understand the concepts in depth for each section in my AP Calculus class so far. He goes over and above to help me understand a difficult problem and the explain of it. He is very patient and makes sure I understand and can explain the steps to a problem for a certain concept. I have definitely understood the concepts in my Calculus course and can also apply them in word problems.

Kevin, 13 lessons with Richard

Knowledgeable Calculus Tutor

I approached Richard when I saw myself falling behind in my Calculus 1 class, and didn't have a firm understanding on the concepts. When I started taking lessons with Richard, I started getting a good grasp on the concepts and performed better in the class. There were also numerous shortcuts that he taught which my professor did't cover and that helped me greatly for the exams.

Vikram , 13 lessons with Richard

Knowledgeable

Richard tutors my son with algebra and pre-algebra. He’s very knowledgeable and is ready to help at any time, with any questions his students may have. Richard has helped my son achieve a very high score in his advanced math classes. We thank him very much and look forward to see our over achieving son be pushed to his full potential! It’s great to have someone who loves to teach as much as my son loves to learn!

Amanda , 5 lessons with Richard

Great Algebra 2 tutor

Richard made me understand the imaginary numbers more clear for me, and whenever I had a question, he would patiently explain how it works. He is very patient and thorough teacher. He explained in detail and made it very clear and easy to understand.

Annie, 8 lessons with Richard

Beyond Expectation!

Richard was an outstanding tutor. He has such a dedication to the subject he tutored me while on the highway for a family trip. He gave me the option to call back anytime I needed help or go stuck on a problem. Without Richard’s help I wouldn’t have understood the concepts he helped me with. He is one of kind and definitely a gift to calculus!

Erica, 2 lessons with Richard

Extremely Flexible and Extremely Helpful Tutor

I had 4 lessons with Richard in preparation of my Algebra 2 test that I was taking over the summer. Richard was willing to work with me at anytime that I was free, and even would adjust his own schedule to make sure I understood the content. He did a wonderful job of adapting to my personal situation, where I had to learn a couple of topics directly before the exam and can tailor his teaching to meet anyone's needs. Beyond our lessons, he continued to direct my practice and advised me with any questions I had. Overall, my tutoring experience with Richard was a great success.

Dedicated and Helpful Tutor!

Mr. Richard was always willing to help me no matter what. He would have guests over or even be with his family who came to visit and would always make time to squeeze in a lesson. Even when he was out of the country he would email me and ask if there was anything I needed help with. He is a very dedicated and helpful individual. He wants the best for all his students and just wants to see them succeed. During my first semester before I had Mr. Richard my math grade was continuously decreasing, and I was eventually at a 78. Once I had him as my tutor he helped me work my way up to an 85 which was a tremendous improvement for me. The next semester with having him the whole year, I ended the class with a 92 which is a lot of growth. Both my math grade and skills improved. He helped me to think more logically. He is one of the nicest and most helpful people I’ve ever met.

Extremely knowledgeable and patient Tutor

Richard has been helping my high school aged son with his algebra II. I selected him because I noticed in his profile he was a retired math teacher. When I contacted him he got back to me within a few minutes. He even volunteered to tutor him that evening on no notice. He has provided several sessions with my son to prepare him for a test and his upcoming midterm exam. My son feels he is very helpful and is very good at explaining things so he can understand it. He is also excellent at assessing my son's needs and providing appropriate practice problems. I would highly recommend Richard as a math tutor for whatever your needs may be.
