About Richard

I am a recent graduate from SUNY Albany having received my Master's Degree in Secondary Education. My specialty is Physics. I received my undergraduate degree in Physics from the United States Naval Academy. I have also received my initial teaching certification from the state of New York. This past year, I taught AP and Regents level Physics, Geometry, and Algebra I at a private school here in Albany. In the fall, I will be teaching Physics at a public school. Additionally, I have tutored high school Physics for my own personal clients for two years.

My tutoring style depends greatly on the student whom I will be working with. Every student has a different learning style, and I try to work within the confines of that style. Usually, I begin by reviewing the baseline instruction provided by the student's regular teacher, and then I present the material in a slightly different fashion. I believe that if a student didn't understand the information the first time, teaching the information in the exact same way will not produce better results. In almost all of my instruction, I include drawings and real life examples to enforce the principle being taught. I am also a very relaxed, easy going individual who likes to joke whenever appropriate.
