About Richard

I am a language professional with an advanced degree in English literature and a background in education and translation. Language and science have been my lifelong passions.

After graduate school, I traveled widely in Europe upgrading my language skills and my knowledge of European history and its multifaceted cultures.
For the past 25 years I have been a freelance translator. Now semi-retired, I return to my first love, teaching. In particular, I enjoy sparking intellectual curiosity and helping others develop creative approaches to problem solving.

Education:
I hold M.A. English Literature, University of Western Ontario, London, ON, Canada, a B.A. English Literature, University of Western Ontario, London, ON, Canada. I can speak English, Dutch, German, French, Italian, Spanish.

I don't teach any theorem I can't prove myself, or get my students to prove. Thinking is more important than the answer. The students who stick with me usually go from C's to B's and A's.

I have a Masters Degree in English Literature and editing, translating experience. I encourage a critical attitude towards all written literature.

I enjoy helping students through their problems. It's never as difficult as you think.
