About Richard

Professional Multi-Discipline Teacher with Public and Private School Experience.

I have tutored the full gamut of students, from the best and brightest to one with special needs, over a wide array of subjects; including all three parts of SAT preparation (Critical Reading, Writing and Math) to individual academic disciplines - Social Studies, English, and Math. I have documented success with aiding high school students in their pursuit of gaining selective and non-selective school admissions including University of Pennsylvania, Brown University, Lehigh University, Penn State University, University of Delaware and Rutgers University. I believe that no two students are created equal, that all have their own strength and weaknesses that can be tweaked to bring out the best in their academic abilities.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I have 10 plus years of experience working with Federally based Upward Bound Program securing college placement for disadvantaged students.

I have 8 plus years working with high-end academic achiever securing positions in selective colleges and graduate schools, including medical school.

My methodology looks at the total student and is not restricted to test scores alone in an effort to find the appropriate college for the applicant. Services include isolating affordable institutions and editing all applications including essays.

SAT Math

I have tutored the full gamut of students, from the best and brightest to one with special needs, over a wide array of subjects; including all three parts of SAT preparation (Critical Reading, Writing and Math) to individual academic disciplines - Social Studies, English, and Math. I have documented success with aiding high school students in their pursuit of gaining selective and non-selective school admissions including University of Pennsylvania, Brown University, Lehigh University, Penn State University, University of Delaware and Rutgers University. I believe that no two students are created equal, that all have their own strength and weaknesses that can be tweaked to bring out the best in their academic abilities.

SAT Reading

I hold a Master in Education, JD and BA degree and have taught SAT Reading Comprehension since 2002 with the federally funded Mercer County Community College Upward Bound program. During that time I have tutored the full gamut of students, from the best and brightest to one with special needs, over a wide array of subjects; including all three parts of SAT preparation (Critical Reading, Writing and Math) to individual academic disciplines - Social Studies, English, and Math. I have documented success with aiding high school students in their pursuit of gaining selective and non-selective school admissions including University of Pennsylvania, Brown University, Lehigh University, Penn State University, University of Delaware and Rutgers University. I believe that no two students are created equal, that all have their own strength and weaknesses that can be tweaked to bring out the best in their academic abilities.

Series 7

I first started working in securities industry in 1985 and have held many jobs within the industry including trading, financial consultant, and compliance. During that time I have personally taken the Series 7 exam two times and passed both times with a scores well above 90%. Without question, my background as a licensed attorney has been invaluable to the work I've done. Over the course of my career, I have been fortunate to consultant with many people seeking to join the industry as a Registered Representative.

Social Studies

I have been a licensed PA Secondary-Social Studies teacher since 2003. I feel quite sure that I can assist any high school student raise his understanding of the subject matter and his grades.
