About Rick

In the past 10 years, I have tutored English to over 350 Microsoft international transfers and their family members, and in the past two years, dozens of middle and high school students on the Eastside. As effective communication is multifaceted in our current society, I improve their listening and reading comprehension as well as their writing and speaking skills simultaneously regardless of the area of our focus. To demonstrate their progress toward owning what they are studying, I encourage them in our classes to articulate their responses, descriptions, and observations as deeply and completely as possible. I am alert to record and give useful feedback throughout our sessions. The education
outcomes of my unique approach:
- better grades
- higher test scores
- deeper understanding of subject matter and its relevance
- improved ability to analyze, synthesize, and articulate

I earned my BA in history from Indiana University, Bloomington. I hold an MSCI and doctorate from Maharishi European Research University for courses taken and taught on programs and techniques that over 385 published research studies indicate improve education outcomes by reducing stress and enlivening the full brain functioning of both students and teachers.

I offer a free session to evaluate a prospective student's English abilities and to discuss and determine the best combination of customized approaches to best help them achieve their language goals.

Smart and goal-oriented tutor

Very glad to be his student. He is very smart that he can know your problems and difficulties in English learning quickly, then teach you English that you can use immediately instead of the English only in the books. I told him I want to improve my English for getting a job in the future and when he give me some example, he always show me the scenarios of my target domain.
