About Rick

I have loved math my entire life and have spent most of my career dealing with the math related to various banking products. But I also understand that many people have problems with math. If they have trouble early in a particular class, it gets worse as the semester goes on because the next lesson is built on comprehending the previous one.

My tutoring approach would begin by understanding what a student is comfortable with and where it seems to get too complicated. Although its important to be able to complete homework assignments, I would also focus on improving problem solving skills and test taking abilities. I tutored my own daughter through high school and loved it when she said "I got it!" She now has a master's degree and also lives in Charlottesville.

I have an MBA in Finance and obtained a post-graduate certificate in financial mathematics. My interest in teaching transpired early in my professional career. It stems from my ability to analyze complex business situations and communicate less complicated written or verbal explanations, whether to a manager or to my staff. I specialize in algebra & geometry and would enjoy helping students prepare for SAT, GMAT and GRE exams.

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.

Algebra 1

Received a grade of 100% on my first year algebra class, scoring 100 on the NY State Regents examination. Also performed in the top 10% on the SAT, GMAT and GRE exams for entrance to college and graduate school, where I majored in Finance. Most importantly, I have an ability to understand why someone is having problems, and will apply various approaches to get around what is causing the problem. In short, I am a problem solver.

Algebra 2

I've scored well on all algebra 2 tests I have ever taken. In addition to loving math, I also have great problem-solving abilities. I will look at different ways to approach problems, and can also advise on test-taking skills.
