About Richard

As a Foreign Service Specialist with the U.S. State Department I have had experience tutoring Swiss foreign nationals in English. My methodology is to reach out to students at their level and build on that with my own expertise.
Having had past experience as a classroom teacher, I have learned that the educational process can be challenging indeed. I am comfortable on a one-to-one basis, being able to see readily the progress a student is making.
Being very much scholastically inclined, I never tire of learning and even pursue continuing education courses when my schedule permits. Learning, for me, is its own reward, the earning of additional degrees not being a necessary ingredient.
After a lifetime of toiling in the world of bureaucracy, I would like now to use my education and talents in the furtherance of the education of others, if not in the classroom, then on a tutorial basis.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I earned 17 credits in English while studying for my undergraduate degree, just one credit short of qualifying it as a minor. I have helped foreign nationals improve their English while working overseas in Switzerland. Finally, I helped students with English in the language lab while studying for my graduate degree in Guidance & Counseling.

GED

I am certified to tutor in GED, having passed the WyzAnt test with a 100% score.

Grammar

I earned 17 credits in English in my undergraduate education toward a B.A. in Liberal Arts. I also passed the English test on the Foreign Service Officer's exam.

Public Speaking

During my high school and college years, I have had to engage in public speaking as part of my course work. During my senior year in high school, I was considered as a possible candidate in an elocution contest. I was also chosen to be part of a debating team during that same senior year.
While in post-graduate school, part of my curriculum included public speaking as a course requirement. My government service has also required me to engage in public speaking on an intermittent basis.


Religion

I have 18 years of Catholic education, having attended Catholic elementary, high school, college, and post-graduate institutions, finally obtaining an M.A. degree in Religious Education from Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut. I have taught high school religion, conducted catechetics classes while pursuing graduate work in Theology, and served as a volunteer instructor in Religious Education classes at my local parish.
When my schedule permits, I attend continuing education courses in Religion at Georgetown University. Religious Education, degreed or non-degreed, . has been, and continues to be a vocation of mine.



SAT Writing

I scored 91% in the SAT Writing exam give by WyzAnt, answering 11 of the 12 questions correctly.

Writing

I have much experience in writing, including writing a thesis for my M.A. degree from Fairfield University in 1973. I have been praised by co-workers as having an exceptional writing ability.
