About Rich


Bio

I really enjoy math and science and like helping other understand these subjects better. I have been tutoring others for many years (ever since I was in high school).

In fact, I enjoy teaching so much that I took a break from my very successful career as an electronics engineer so I could teach for several years. During that time I taught Geometry, Algebra 2, PreCalculus, Calculus, Physical Science, Chemistry and Physics. I was frequently sought out by students that were not in my classes...

I really enjoy math and science and like helping other understand these subjects better. I have been tutoring others for many years (ever since I was in high school).

In fact, I enjoy teaching so much that I took a break from my very successful career as an electronics engineer so I could teach for several years. During that time I taught Geometry, Algebra 2, PreCalculus, Calculus, Physical Science, Chemistry and Physics. I was frequently sought out by students that were not in my classes for help and tutoring.

I want to help you succeed just as I have already done for many students of all abilities. I am especially good at finding new and innovative ways to explain and illustrate concepts and love to help even right-brained students find success in what are often difficult subjects for them. I am also good at helping to develop problem-solving skills. Such skills are very important in math and the physical sciences, but many students struggle in this area.

In college and graduate school I studied electrical engineering and took classes in Calculus, Differential Equations, Probability and Statistics, Finite Math, Linear Math, Classical and Nuclear Physics, and Chemistry. I have worked as a math and science teach in a private school and as an electronics engineer.

Did a great job

Rich worked with my daughter to prepare for a college level physics test. She told me he was thorough and very knowledgeable and she now understands the topics she needed assistance with. She'd definitely use him again in the future if necessary.

Matt, 1 lesson with Rich

Patient and caring tutor

Rich is making headway with my son who failed calc 2 last semester. I credit Rich with building up my sons confidence along with learning the subject matter.

Tom, 34 lessons with Rich

Knowledgeable, patient and nice tutor

Rich taught me about polyatomic ions and naming the compounds in chemistry. I feel more confident after the session because now I can be able to apply the methods and rules I was taught to naming and identifying the chemical formulas.
