About Richard

Hello to all my new neighbors in the Portland metro area!
My wife, 3 kids, and I just moved to the area from Iowa because she was offered a great job at a local hospital.
I have tutored over 1000 hours in subjects ranging from Pre-Algebra to College level Statistics and Calculus. I have also helped many students prepare for SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT and ASVAB tests.
I have a BS in Mathematics and will be starting graduate study in Mathematical Sciences at Portland State this next semester.
If you or your children have any aspirations of a career in the sciences then mathematics is the most important language to learn. Having a good background in Algebra, Geometry, and even Pre-Calculus now will make things so much easier when you get into real math later on.

We can also have online sessions at a reduced rate of $30/HR. The online is a less expensive option, not because it is less effective but because it saves on my travel time and makes my schedule more flexible.

Please ask me about group rates and referral bonuses! I realize hiring a tutor can be a big investment but one that can pay off for you and your kids in the long run.


Let's get together for a session and see if it's a good fit!

All the best,
Rich

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.

Very knowledgeable and understanding — Richard explained a problem then had Mac work through it without a calculator. This method gave her renewed understanding & confidence. The casual public setting was not a distraction - Richard is very knowledgeable & established a nice rapport with our daughter! Looking forward to more lessons. ...
