AP Physics - 12 grade

Richard is serious and very student-oriented and friendly. He knows his stuff and has helped my son get oriented to a tough subject AP Physics. He even went to Barnes and Nobles and bought a text book for Dan so he could have a textbook to work from in the absence of good material provided by his school teacher. I'd recommend Richard as a reliable and knowledgable tutor in physics (likely other subjects too)

Evan, 6 lessons with Richard

Great teaching style!

Thanks to Richard for helping my son understand some of the challenges he is experiencing in pre calculus. Since working with Richard, my son is feeling more confident with pre-calculus.

Kim, 3 lessons with Richard

Knows his subject well!

Thank you Richard for working with Holden on short notice and helping to clear up his confusion in calculus! Richard knows his subject well and is a patient and kind teacher.

Donna, 1 lesson with Richard

Knowledgeable math tutor

Richard helped my son better understand math concepts that he needs for the SAT test. I definitely recommend him. He was able to explain clearly and my son was very pleased.

Daphne, 1 lesson with Richard

Great knowledgeable AP Calc tutor

My high school daughter has tutored twice with Richard for AP Calculus. He has been extremely helpful. He has taught her ways of doing Calculus that she never thought of before. It is a huge relief to have found a tutor that can teach at this level. Thank you!

Carlyn, 12 lessons with Richard

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Richard has done two sessions with my son and results are already revealing themselves in my son getting more confident with physics and getting excited about understanding how relevant the subject is to every day life. Richard has terrific ability to explain and be patient.

Maria, 4 lessons with Richard

Tutor who draws student's interest in Math!

My sister has been working with Richard over few months now. She had been doing great at school, but sometimes got bored due to slow materials. We, my parents and I, wanted to give her challenging but interesting contents to keep her motivated in mathematics. After few sessions in Algebra 2, Richard slowly introduced the basic concepts and contents in Calculus. She was excited to see the relevance between two materials and got really interested! Every session she comes back, she tells what she learned and I could see that she is full of energy to work on the materials for whole week! Thank you :D

SUJI, 16 lessons with Richard

Most knowledgeable tutor

Richard helps my daughter with AP calculus. He is the most reliable and most knowledgeable tutor I've ever known. Without his help, my daughter wouldn't get a good score in AP math. You will never regret if you choose him as your tutor.

Ying, 24 lessons with Richard

Good Experience

My daughter's first session with Richard went great. She felt she learned the concepts in order to complete a Chemistry worksheet. Have not gotten to Algrebra 2 yet but plan to next week. Good experience.
