About Rich

Hello Future Students and Parents

I have spent the last 10 years tutoring English and the Social Sciences in Prague, Czech Republic. I averaged about 5 years with my students. Many of my students have gone on to Universities throughout Europe and are in an exclusive private high school in England. My students scored, on average, a 7 on the IELTS test.

I have traveled quite extensively around the world. Because of my travels I bring a variety of experiences and cultural knowledge. While living in the Czech Republic I have learned a great deal of European history through my associations with people who have lived through some of the most interesting times in the last half century. I have also done independent study of history.

I am a published author on Amazon Kindle. I am currently working on my next book. If you need someone who has real world experience with English, then I am a great choice as a tutor.

My focus is on teaching critical thinking. My students learn from writing, reading and listening about topical issues and from a variety of sources. My students will be expected to analyze the material used in the classes. I also have my students analyze their own work. Learning is a two-way process. I believe my students can teach me things. I support a free exchange of ideas with my students.

My success is measured in the success of my students.

I look forward to having you as a student.

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

I have either lived or visited many of the important places in American History. This allows me to give insights beyond what is in the textbooks.

English

Over ten years teaching English to students who were not native English speakers. The bulk of my students were in High School.

I currently have students who are in Universities across Europe and in an exclusive private school in the UK. All of my students scored well on international standardized English tests.

One final note, I have just recently finished a novel. It should be published in the next couple of months.

ESL/ESOL

I have prepared students for several standardized tests that got them into universities in the UK. I also have helped my adults score well on English tests so they could get promotions at their work.

So no matter if you are wanting to improve you English for school or work, then I am the tutor for you.

I have copies of various exams so you will be able to see your improvements.

IELTS

I know I am qualified to tutor this subject since I have been tutoring it for about 7 years.

None of my students have gotten less than a 6.5 on the IELTS test. None of my students have not meet the English standards for any of the Universities or private schools they have applied for.

Public Speaking

I was a stand-up comedian in Prague. I auditioned for several parts in plays. I also was an actor in a few indie movies. I have appeared a couple of times on Czech Television to offer commentaries. (An audience of a few million people.)

My business students have been complemented by their management for the presentations I have helped them prepare for. I have helped a couple of my school students to perform in school plays.

I can help the students of overcome their fear of speaking before a crowd of people.

Very flexible, intelligent, and patient!

Rich has been tutoring my 8 year old son for over a month now, and I can honestly say that I have seen a much needed improvement in his reading and communication skills. Rich is extremely patient with him and always makes it fun! My son looks forward to seeing him every time and never wants to miss a tutoring session! As a busy working mom and a student myself, Rich has been nothing but accommodat
