About Richard

I offer professional, one-on-one tutoring in a huge array of academic subjects -- math, English, philosophy, the hard sciences, test prep (e.g., SAT, GRE and LSAT) and more.

With fifteen years of experience studying college-level subjects, I have taught in classrooms at UT and tutored at the grade-school, college, and post-college levels.

Work with me so I can make my success become your success. Together we can break the ice of incomprehension that bars the way between you and your academic goals. I'm eager to teach you to love the very subjects you used to hate.

I scored 155+ on a professionally administered IQ test, started college at age fourteen, graduated there at the top of my class, and made a perfect score on the GRE on my first try. I've earned double Master's degrees, the first from Duke University and the second from the University of Texas.

I specialize in taking students from ground zero all the way to the apex of their abilities. I work with my students slowly and carefully, with warmth and encouragement, going at their own pace.

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.

Bible Studies

I completed a Master's in Theological Studies from Duke University in 2009, with an excellent GPA. My studies included courses on the Old and New Testaments, as well as biblical Hebrew. I have also studied biblical Greek as an undergraduate.

GRE

Earned perfect on GRE, all three sections. First attempt.

Logic

I am currently a fourth-year graduate student in good standing in the department of philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. I have taken both an undergraduate level logic course from Mercer University as well as a graduate level logic course from UT Austin. I received an A in both courses, as well as good feedback from my professors. I work with logic on a regular basis in my research as a professional philosopher.

Religion

I completed a Master's in Theological Studies from Duke University in 2009.

Writing

I've helped UT students revise their essays for four semesters while working as their TA.

Fantastic tutor. Looking forward to future lessons.

Richard is an amazing tutor. Due to my geographic location I require video lessons and Richard the system down. We spoke about a timeline to complete the GRE and set up a schedule to review coursework for our next lesson. We were able to lay out a plan of how long it is going to take to prepare for the GRE and he was able to help me with my math, which I have always struggled with and been away
