About Richard

For my entire career, I have a demonstrated passion for teaching and coaching students at all levels including adults.

My university level education was completed at a small liberal arts institution. The expectations were high and that each student receive a well-rounded, diverse level of knowledge in many subject areas.

I hold a Texas Teaching Certification in Latin and Social Studies. In my teaching career, I have taught high school classes in World History, World Geography and American Government.

My teaching and tutoring experience is diverse as well. I currently teach all levels of Latin at the secondary school level including Pre-AP and AP levels. My focus is to help my students score on the SAT and ACT tests each year.

In addition, I have taught in the Homebound student program for 3 years. That program has been very rewarding for me personally. Working individually with these students who have challenges has made me a better tutor.

In my corporate learning and development career at the director level, I have facilitated courses in leadership development, interpersonal communications, customer service, employee engagement and empowerment, tactical supervisory leadership, human relations, and management.

I have coached business leaders and specialize in developing personal communication skills including public speaking.

Wonderful tutor! — Richard has played a transformative role in my 7th grade son's Latin studies. Last year, my son's grades declined steadily from the beginning of the year until the end of the year. I could foresee no way that my son would be prepared to begin second year Latin. Richard worked with him for 90 minutes twice a week over the summer. My son returned this past fall to Latin 2 with a better understanding ...
