About Richard

I am an experienced high school teacher who has tutored students (both high school and college) who have attended multiple school districts in the state of Rhode Island as well as private schools. I have a Bachelors degree in Physics from Holy Cross with a concentration in Pre-Medical studies. I chose to go into teaching rather than attending medical school for the simple reason of connecting and educating students.

I am currently entering my 20th year of teaching high school. For the past 15 years I have been a member of the North Kingstown High School Science department, of which I am the Department Chairperson and Engineering Curriculum Coordinator. I also taught for 5 years at Austin Preparatory School, a co-ed, Catholic High School in Reading, Massachusetts. My teaching experience includes Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, and Robotics.

My philosophy in tutoring is to try to get to know a student and what it takes for them to understand the topics at hand, understanding that this may change from course to course or topic to topic. From there I aim to have students personalize the concepts while understanding the "why's" rather than the "what's". I feel that this method will make a student understand the principles and be able to apply them to different themes and topics within a course.

I am available for tutoring during after school and evening hours.
