About Richard


Bio

I am a very experienced tutor (>5 years) who has helped many students (Ages 7 - 21) in a range of subjects, most especially Algebra. I am also great at helping students prepared for standardized tests like the ASVAB, SAT and PRAXIS exams.

I have taught at five colleges in the Philadelphia area, mostly math and chemistry, over the last 12 years. I also love kids, having spent five years working in the Big Brothers program. I am very fun and flexible - You and your child will enjoy me...

I am very fun and flexible - You and your child will enjoy me thoroughly, and I will help put them at easy and get them smiling.

I live in Phoenixville, but work as a Physics teacher in Warminster. Thus I can meet near either location.
