Excellent tutor. Truly understands the material and seamlessly makes difficult information easy to understand. Very patient and flexible. Truly has a passion for student achievement and success. I was struggling terribly, however Mr. Richard remained diligent and constructed various teaching methods to help me retain the information. Passed with an A!
Would def use him again in the future.
Richard helped me to study for my ASVAB test and really helped me to get a better score. It only took a few sessions to see an improvement. He explained everything in the easiest way so I could understand the information and not forget. He also found my areas of weakness and focused on them. He is an excellent tutor and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for tutoring.
Richard has been assisting my son through some difficulty in his AP Chemistry course taught in high school. He has been very knowledgeable, patient, flexible and skillful. My son felt more confident after his session. We are delighted to have him working with my son.
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.
