I received my BA in Biology from Drew University and went on to obtain my PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Pennsylvania.

Good day to you.

My name is Richard and I have been tutoring in the Nashville area for over three years. I received my BA in Biology from Drew University and went on to obtain my PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Pennsylvania. Throughout my career I have been involved in educating my fellows both formally in tutoring and classroom situations and informally during on the job training.

My philosophy is that a student should not only know the right answer but understand how to come to the right answer and the relevance of this knowledge in their daily lives. I dedicate myself to patient explanations of the materials leavened with entertaining trivia and asides that add context and a little fun to the learning. I look forward to learning about the world with you.

patient and kind

Richard is very patient and has a calm voice that my son really responds to. He takes the time to explain a concept and/or an idea in a variety of ways to ensure my son understands. He is also very punctual, thank you Richard.

Elissa, 51 lessons with Richard

Excellent tutor.

Rich tutored our son in Algebra 2. It is no small feat that he helped him understand graphing within an hour. Rich is accommodating and easy to work with.

Julie, 4 lessons with Richard

Richard has lots of knowledge and makes things very interesting!

He seems to really know the subjects and helps to make them interesting, with lots of fun and unusual information.

Trish, 16 lessons with Richard

Clarity in unclear subjects

My grand-daughter was struggling in Chemistry and Algebra 2 for a semester. Her second semester was spent with Richard and both grades moved up to B's. Wished we had started sooner. Her senior year we are starting Richard in the beginning with Calculus and ACT prep.

Mr Richard D was an excellent Tutor. I wish he continues to help my son in the next school year coming up.

Michelle, 69 lessons with Richard

Fantastic!

Richard knows his subjects very well. He is kind, patient and jovial. Last year our daughter got an A in Algebra 2 thanks in large part to Richards tutoring! This year he is helping our daughter with geometry, chemistry and act prep. He definitely has our trust in this very important area! Thanks Richard!!!
