About Richard

Do you need help in one of your science courses? I can help! I graduated with honors in Biology (with a minor in Chemistry) from Oberlin College as well as an MS in Medical Physiology from Case Western Reserve University. With this, strong background in the biological and chemical sciences, I not only have a good understanding of these subject areas, but also a grasp on how to effectively communicate and allow others to understand as well.

While in undergrad, I had experiences teaching and tutoring high school and college level science courses. I have continued to work with several students in understanding various material in the sciences and music.

While I've had good success helping students at the end of their courses or near exam time, I work well meeting regularly to help students build a foundation for their knowledge and understanding for a long period of time. I am a big believer in students understanding material instead of memorization. I can help you clarify difficult concepts by reviewing topics and supplemental materials. I also like to focus on testing skills, because I believe it is an important part of succeeding at any subject.


I have helped many high school students with their AP Biology and Chemistry exams, with a success rate of 80% of my students receiving a 4-5 on the exam.

I have also taught an introductory undergrad biology course for non-majors while attending grad school.

I have studied violin for over 15 years. While I started off with the Suzuki method, I later switched to traditional violin. I am well versed in technique and helping people understand music theory.

Whether you are interested in on-going tutoring, or the occasional support, I would love to help you to reach the next level of understanding! Please contact me to schedule a lesson. I love science (and violin) and want to help you love it too!

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.

Violin

I have studied violin for over 15 years. While I started off learning the Suzuki method, I later switched to traditional violin. I am well versed in technique as well as theory. I also have experience in playing in ensembles (including chamber and orchestral music)
