I am a former college professor (Ph.D., Psychology), businessman and researcher on computer-based training and performance tools. I have taught statistics, experimental design, technical writing and various subjects and levels in psychology (introductory psychology, personality theory, research methods and psychological measurement (i.e. testing)) to undergraduates and graduate students. My specialty is statistics, and in addition to teaching I have served as a statistics consultant on technical publications in areas including psychology, chemistry and medicine.
I also teach algebra II, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, finite math, discrete math and calculus, since I believe that a strong foundation in the basics is essential for success in all technical fields. Once the basics are mastered, the rest is straightforward. My teaching approach is both intuitive and technical, and I use real world examples with whose characteristics we all already well acquainted. I work closely with students taking on-line courses, since a difficulty students face in on-line courses is getting questions answered early enough to keep from falling behind.
I have published a number of articles in academic journals, and can teach you how to write in journal-article format (and also improve your overall writing skill). For those whose work requires writing competitive proposals and grant applications, I have written winning proposals and successfully managed programs totaling over $70M. I have taught students of all ages from high school through graduate students pursuing master’s and doctoral degrees, in psychology, nursing, business, engineering and education. I especially enjoy working with adults who are going back to school after being in the real world.
I look forward to working with you and contributing to your success.

Richard exceeded my expectations on so many levels. He was personable, consistent, punctual, was concise in his explanations of the material, made the material applicable to real life situations, and truly seems to have a passion to help you learn. He was flexible and did an outstanding job. I would highly recommend Richard to anyone taking Biostatistics or any subject matter which he tutors. Richard- thank you so much for your help!! I could not have made it through this class without you!!Sarah, 5 lessons with Richard
Glad I found a very good statistics tutor
I was very apprehensive about looking for a tutor in statistics primarily because I do not have an affinity for statistics. It was my worse course grade in college. But I needed help in understanding the results of my study for my nursing dissertation PhD. So I took a chance. Richard is an excellent statistics instructor. He is knowledgeable about statistics, patient, and has very good communication skills. He did not make me feel "dumb" but actually helped me understand correlation. We are working on regression. Most of all he is helping me reach my goals. I highly recommend Richard as at statistics, math tutor. It has been a very good experience.Kathleen , 3 lessons with Richard
Patient and Understanding for Statistics
He is very patient and understanding. He doesn't hurry through the lesson and makes it so much easier to understand than I can figure out on my own. I am finding it very easy to learn from him. I would definitely recommend him to others.Pam, 13 lessons with Richard
I would definitely recommend Richard for any statistic help. I came to him for assistance with a medically focused manuscript and he displayed great understanding of our unique project design with little explanation. He is a quick learner as well as a informative teacher. I will certainly be requesting his services for future endeavors.Brandon, 1 lesson with Richard
