Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, 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, and need help beyond your graduate colleagues and teaching assistants, then email me. This is serious, in-depth tutoring, for the serious student.

As an adjunct to my usual instruction, I am available for tutoring in courses that may benefit the engineering student: Materials Science, Solid State Physics, Fluid Mechanics, and Basic Control Theory (Laplace transforms). Also, if you are studying at the doctoral level in the field of Psychometrics, then I can be invaluable in helping you to understand and apply Matrix Theory in Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). Email me if you're having difficulty in any of these educational pursuits.

My further tutoring skills include the design and analysis of algorithms in Computer Science as well as working with topics in Symbolic Logic. I've recently added a skill to help the Computer Science student with Formal Language Theory, the aspects of grammar generation, and the nuances of Context-Free Languages (CFL) and Grammars (CFG). This subject area is most demanding, so if you're stuck email me.

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

Business

I have a Quantitative MBA from the University of Akron, which is rated in the top 5% of Business Schools that are also AACSB accredited. Additionally, I completed doctoral coursework in Operations Research at Kent State University (also AACSB). My MS in Mathematics is both pure and applied with a sub-minor in Operations Research. I held a previous appointment in the adjunct faculty of Ohio University for teaching Operations Management.
Econometrics

Econometrics

As a Mathematician with an MBA, I've completed three graduate courses in Economics. This included analysis of the works of J. M. Keynes and J. K. Galbraith while utilizing the statistical tools related to those endeavors. Much of Econometrics is related to Statistical Analysis, which I've also taught. More advanced courses utilize Real Analysis which I've tutored in this learning platform.

Computer

Computer Science,

Computer Science

As an Applied Mathematician and Physicist well-trained in the use of computer programming languages I've solved differential equations and forward integration problems with Runge-Kutta methods in Fortran, as well as BASIC and Pascal. I have written my own code to compute the statistical parameters of distribution functions. As deeper subject matter, I have tutored and taught Discrete Mathematics. I am also skilled in using Excel as a resource to do Linear Programming with a few, readily available software packages. For very young students I simply show how a word problem can be solved by applying simple code to extract solutions if any should exist.
Fortran

Fortran

I am a Mathematician and Physicist, and have been programming computers in both Applesoft BASIC and Dartmouth BASIC for years. My professional experience is in FORmula TRANslation (Fortran), where I have solved several numerical Eigenvalue problem, either by adapting parts of standard code or writing my own. Due to the power of Excel, many elementary to advanced programs can be written via this package, which in fact, I do take advantage of. I also have a great library of MAPLE programs and Statistical packages, and have used some Mathematica. However, I have minimal passing familiarity with C and C++.

My Graduate Mathematics and Doctoral work is in Statistics and Applied Probability. I also have an MBA in O.R. I tutor Business and Nursing Students as well, having taught this material at: ODU, RCBC, Columbus State, and the Keller Graduate School of Management. Using the TI-83+ and software, we learn to compute Confidence Intervals, analyze data, perform Statistical Tests (t-, Z-, Chi-Square, etc.), and utilize the usual Probability distributions found in many courses. I also tutor the AP student.

History

Philosophy

Philosophy

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 a categorical syllogism. 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.

Biostatistics,

Biostatistics

I taught undergrad Statistics to Nursing students at both CSCC.edu and ODU.edu., and later provided that instruction at the graduate level at KGSM.edu. Biostatistics is an adjunct to Classical Statistical Methods, in that we use Bayesian methods, survival probabilities, and outcome predictability from clinical trials, conditions and longitudinal studies. I am highly capable in using the appropriate tests (T-test, 2x2 Contingency, Simple Linear Regression and Multiple Linear Regression). As a capstone, I employ Non-parametric methods where appropriate.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

Differential Equations is an intriguing subject, normally encountered in the second year of training. However, some readily available methods of solution are handled by algebraic means. For example, the time-varying homogeneous LDE: Y"+bY'+kY = 0, with real constant coefficients can be solved by assuming an algebraic solution of the form Y = e^(st), and solving the operator-algebraic equation in 's'. In the non-homogeneous LDE, using Green's functions, the Wronskian, or Variation of Parameters provide elegance. Also, many of these methods can be extended to the LPDEs, using Separation of Variables, especially for those problems encountered in Physics, Engineering, and Quantum Mechanics. As a Mathematical Physicist, I have taken at least 6 Mathematics courses covering: LDEs, PDEs, NLDEs, Sturm-Liouville Theory, and boundary-value problems, as well as their application.
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

My Pure Math courses at the University of Akron, included one graduate course (500-level) involving combinatorial graph theory, and I earned the grade of A. In my Applied Mathematics course at Cleveland State I had three courses (600-level) involving Combinatorics, Graph Theory and Markov Chains, receiving the grades of A, A and B respectively. At Kent State in my doctoral Operations Research sequence I had one (700-level) course in Finite State Markov Chains, receiving the grade of A. While at Akron, I also developed a discrete search algorithm to solve small-scale, optimization problems. I have an ongoing interest in Number Theory, Goldbach's Conjecture, and Turing Machine applications.
Electrical Engineering,

Electrical Engineering

My EE experience has included basic circuit analysis. I have taken one course during my second year Physics sequence and two courses in E&M in the upper sequence involving Maxwell's Equations. Most basic circuit theory involves analysis of impressed voltages and currents on various combinations of the R-L-C circuit, whenever DC, transient, or AC responses are sought. I can teach you how add resistors (R), capacitors (C), and inductors (L) in parallel and in series and apply both Thevenin's and Norton's theorems to reduce circuit item isolation/response.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

My Finite Math teaching has covered Sets, Venn Diagrams, Counting, Combinations, Permutations and the basics of Linear Algebra and Matrices. My background includes the study and teaching of Probability, Random Variables, Dice Games, and Statistics. The latter includes data analysis, hypothesis testing, finding averages, variances and data spread. I can also help the student understand Linear Programming and Basic Game Theory. I have also taught the fundamentals of Business Math in this course of study.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have taken both Basic and Advanced Linear Algebra in Mathematics courses and three more in related Mathematical Physics, Statistics, and Engineering courses. We will address Bases, Dimension, Determinants, Gauss-Jordan, Transformations T: V->W, or T: W->W, Subspaces, Eigenvalues, Eigenvectors, and solutions to sets of Linear Equations.
Logic,

Logic

The symbolic logic basis to the Physical Sciences is rooted in Modus Ponens. Consider P /\ (P=>Q) =>Q. An hypothesis 'P' with the implication that 'Q' follows from 'P' then states that if 'P' has existence, and that existence implies a 'Q', then 'Q' necessarily follows. "it is raining outside" and if "It is raining outside" then "the sidewalks are wet". Reality: "It is raining outside, therefore "wet sidewalks" follows. As a degreed Master of Science student in both Pure and Applied Mathematics, my course work included proving theorems using the machinery of Symbolic Logic. This involved stating theorems with the use of Universal and Existential quantifiers, and proving or presenting them similarly. I also have completed a course in the Transition to Advanced Mathematics, from which I developed Truth Tables to determine the validity or invalidity of arguments. I completed an undergraduate course in the subject of Logic under the rubric of a Philosophy course, and am a well-read follower of S.C. Kleene, A. Church, E. Post and K. Goedel.
Mechanical Engineering,

Mechanical Engineering

I have a degree each in both Physics and Engineering with the completion of 15 hours at the graduate level. I am qualified to teach the Thermodynamics, Mechanics, Dynamics, and Mechanics of Materials classes. Each of these is related to the static forces, dynamics of machinery, and the loads machines and structures can sustain. I have taught Columbus State students in this subject matter, and tutored more advanced material to Ohio State students. I also tutor Heat Transfer from the standpoint of the Mathematics involved in the solutions, which may include Newton's Law of Cooling and the several Differential Equations used therein.

Probability,

Probability

Much of my undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral work is in the areas of Probability and Statistics. I have strong background in Statistics and Applied Probability Models, and Markov Chains; the latter being more of stochastic modeling (Conditional and Discrete Space Probability) on the level of Sheldon Ross's books. I have a complete set of notes for undergraduate and graduate courses, since I've taught both. If you need foundational skill in Statistics or Probability Theory email me.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

I am an expert in this subject matter, having taught it in a range of subjects from Precalculus to the Calculus as well as in Physics classes (Resolution of vectors via trigonometric identities). The fundamental identity in this genre is [sin(x)] ^2 + [cos(x)]^2 = 1. Several others are derivable from it. For Sums and Products of Trig functions I often taught the use of the Euler Identity e^(i*theta) = cos(theta) + i*sin(theta), and match real and imaginary components in the expansion. One thing that serves the student well is that the 'y' component is related to the sine of the angle and the cosine component to the 'x' value. It's often helpful to draw the trigonometric figure if static angles are involved, especially to find the inverse Trig functions.

Great Review of Precalc

This was a review of precalculus for an upcoming final at school. MacKenzie said the lesson went very well and she could easily understand the concepts. We plan on using Professor V. again this weekend for a statistics review.

Carol, 1 lesson with Richard

Prof. V. is a passionate instructor

Prof. V was very concerned with me understanding the concepts. He came prepared to the session and is planning with me to get where I want to be for a successful semester. So worth it.

S., 3 lessons with Richard

Knowledgeable and patient and determined tutor

We worked with the rules of Implementation and Replacement in logic. He showed me an application I can I use that will make things easier. We also worked through some problems in my book. Very good tutor.

Linda, 1 lesson with Richard

Amazing

Dr. V made math exciting again. I’ll be using him not only for math but an assortment of other subjects; the man is vastly well researched when it comes to Math and Sciences’. It’s impossible not to learn from him.

Madison, 3 lessons with Richard

Excellent tutor

Richard is a very effective tutor. He has tutored, and continues to tutor my three children at various levels in math, physics, ACT and SAT test preparation. His patience and methods has been very helpful in strengthening their academic and test-taking skills. According to my children, he provides a variety of explanations and approaches that not only improves their understanding of the material, but also enhances their confidence about their ability to succeed in the course or test. Mr. Richard always shows up according to schedule, communicates with me about the tutoring session and the progress being made, even working in harmony with their classroom teacher when necessary, in providing excellent academic assistance. I give him the grade of awesome.

Gabriel, 51 lessons with Richard

Very helpful and patient.

Richard has been very helpful with studying for my military assessment test, ASVAB/ASTB. He has been especially helpful, and patient, with some of my shortcomings in math and physics. I've become more confident in these areas since taking tutoring lessons with Mr. Richard V.

Michael, 28 lessons with Richard

The best tutor!

I was an OSU undergraduate student taking Stats 1430. I received an A in the class due to the help of Prof. V. He was a very knowledgeable tutor who had a knack for rephrasing concepts to help them "click." He was also able to put the concept into real world scenarios to help me better understand them as well. If you are looking for a statistics tutor, look no further!

Matt, 10 lessons with Richard

Great tutor

Richard is a very good tutor. My son has only had a few sessions covering calculus and physics and it has already positively impacted his confidence and his grades. Thank you for knowing how to cover the info in a way my son can understand.
