About Richard

I have extensive training and experience as a college level Adjunct Faculty instructor. I Have taught at Northeastern University, Portland State University, Portland Community College, Skagit Valley Community College, and in Seoul, South Korea for two years. I am professionally certified in English & Writing and am an experienced one on one online instructor. I specialize in college level English Composition, Writing and Research Papers........any and all your English needs. I teach all levels and abilities, but I primarily work with High School and college level students, plus adults, including Adult Basic Education for reading and writing, plus citizenship English for those preparing for Naturalization. I am a published writer with 17 articles on English and Travel, 3 book projects and one book length manuscript, published in connection with Pacific Western University, where I received a Master's degree, plus I received a second place finish in a national writing contest sponsored by Byline Magazine.

I use Discussion Based Teaching methods, with a student centered approach, one on one, focusing on your specific needs and goals. I love to teach and help people move forward. I don't care about the money. I care about you. I'm available 24/7 for questions you may have outside of class times. As a classroom of 1, you will move forward rapidly.

What qualifies me to teach English are my degrees (BA, MA), certifications and experience, along with my ability to focus on each individual student's needs and wishes in a classroom of one.

My rates are low, expectations high, because I love to teach and see students progress. You'll be in a classroom of one and my focus will be on you alone. I'm available for questions 24/7. and for High School students I can offer services involving college placement and counseling. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain, so why don't you give me a try?
