Richard was able to help me with Calculus 1 in a way that I was able to understand. I feel much more confident now going into the test. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a math tutor.
Richard arrived on time and was very professional. My son felt he understood his physics much better after the lesson. I will definitely use him again.
Rick was able to come with only one day notice. He showed up promptly on time and worked hard with my son for over 2 hours!
Rick arrived on time, did a great job of explaining problems & concepts, and even had a sense of humor - what more can you ask for from a tutor!
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.
I've been an AP Calculus instructor at a local high school for the past 4 years. This is a college Calculus course and most of my students typically receive Calculus I credit after completion of my course.
