About Richard

I have taught at various levels, including small and large scale class sizes, and provided individualized tutoring for much of my career. Teaching is my passion and it's fulfilling to take someone along the journey of growth in the subject area of interest.

Beyond mere subject area expertise, I know what it takes to complete courses, how to prepare and take tests/exams, maximize the time spent in class/tutor sessions, and ultimately create effective study habits for different types of courses according to the content of each.

I have a wealth of experience utilizing statistics and various available software programs, both in the research work that I've been involved in as well in the training that I have conducted with students at all levels. Whether you're looking to understand the mathematics of statistics or develop your statistical application skills, I'll be able to provide the basic and advanced knowledge you need.

I hold a BS in Psychology, an MA in Clinical Psychology, and a PhD in Psychology. I have numerous peer-reviewed journal publications focusing on various aspects of psychology.

After being selected to represent South Africa, I played Division 1 intercollegiate tennis at Middle Tennessee State University and have taught tennis to beginners through to advanced players for several years.

Having studied for a number of years, I know the challenges associated with taking courses and achieving one's goals. If you'd like any information about how I'm able to assist you, please don't hesitate to contact me.

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.

Proofreading

With extensive writing experience, particularly in the academic sphere, I am well versed in the nuances of the English language, identifying issues, and revising any piece of writing to meet the highest quality standards and produce a high quality piece of work. I have mentored many students through assignment, thesis, and dissertation writing on the way to generating well polished pieces, and I look forward to taking you through the journey to a finely tuned document for all submission formats.

Psychology

I have over 10 years of studying experience, culminating in a PhD in psychology. I also completed a post-doctoral research fellowship and have published widely in peer-reviewed journals. I have taught at several major global universities, such as the University of KwaZulu-Natal, and have tutored students periodically throughout my time as a student as well as during my employment.

SAS

I have more than 5 years of statistical application expertise culminating in a doctorate and post-doctoral experience in psychology. Graduate level degrees focused heavily on applied statistics, which I have used for publishing and teaching undergraduate level students. I have also been a statistical consultant on student projects, as well as on research grants of various kinds, with one of my primary roles being to conduct statistical analyses using SAS software.

SPSS

I have over 10 years of studying experience, culminating in a PhD in psychology. Graduate level degrees focused heavily on applied statistics, which I have both used for publishing and taught to undergraduate level students. I have also been a statistical consultant on student projects, as well as on research grants of various kinds.

Statistics

Having excelled in statistics throughout my formal tertiary education, I have provided statistical consultation to students as well as larger scale, organization-based projects for a number of years. I have also taught statistics and research methods (which included a substantial statistics portion) at undergraduate level, and provided individualized one-on-one support to students in my classes.

Tennis

I have played tennis for more than 20 years, with major junior career highlights including being ranked within the top 5 in South African singles (18 and under age group) and being selected to represent South Africa at a junior level. I also received an athletic scholarship to play Division 1 intercollegiate tennis at Middle Tennessee State University from 2007 to 2010, and was part of a conference winning team (2009) that participated in the NCAA tournament. During my senior playing years, I have taught tennis consistently (beginner to advanced players, including private and group lessons), with full time teaching over 4 summers (4 months) in Long Island, NY from 2008 to 2011.

Writing

As an academic with several tertiary qualifications, as well as numerous peer-reviewed publications, I have a wealth of experience with various forms of writing and writing for specific audiences. I've mentored and co-authored with individuals of varying abilities, and provided individualized support to a range of students from first year undergraduate to doctoral level.

Amazing tutor, extremely knowledgeable & super patient!

Richard taught me how to set up tests from a Qualtrics survey results and learn how to read the finds using IBM SPSS Statistics. Fantastic working with him! He is able to talk to you at your level of understanding, teach you what you need and more! He also did it all in the short window of time I had to get my data together! He's a real gem!
