About Richard

I taught at Lourdes High School in Oshkosh for 39 years. There, I taught all courses (pre algebra, algebra1 and 2, geometry, trigonometry and calculus) offered at one time or another, which includes both upper and lower level students. I am willing to spend extra hours outside the classroom helping students. I try to develop confidence in students which will in turn allow them to have success.

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.

Algebra 1

During the 40 years that I taught, over 30 was in Algebra 1 which was the springboard for later work in mathematics. Most of these students continued on with me for 3 additional years in the curriculum.

Algebra 2

During the 40 years that I taught mathematics, I taught Algebra 2 over 30 years which fulfilled their graduation requirement of 3 years of mathematics. Often I taught more than one class per semester and Algebra 2 set the foundation for many who went on to successfully complete PreCalculus/Trigonometry.

Calculus

During the 40 years I taught, I taught Calculus for over 20 years under a variety of formats (traditional, 8 period day, block, etc) The school made a concerted effort to offer Calculus 1 and Calculus 2 for college credit and high school credit. In addition to that emphasis and the fact that we needed to offer more courses for the struggling students, Calculus classes were taught by a Professor from UW-O in recent years and has continued on since I retired.

Geometry

I taught Geometry for over 25 years, most of them following the normal curriculum sequence but frequently there were a class or two of 9th graders who were accelerated students and they started with me freshman year in Geometry. All of these student advanced to Algebra 2 as part of their graduation requirement.

Precalculus

During the 40 years, I taught the topics in this class under a variety of class titles for over 30 years. It may be been an elective for students or fulfilled their 3 year requirement for graduation. It served as a springboard for the accelerated students who went on to earn additional college credits in Calculus 1 and Calculus 2 as seniors.

Trigonometry

During the 40 years that I taught, Trigonometry started out as a separate class and I taught it under a variety of formats (traditional, 8 period day, block, etc). Later on the topics of Trigonometry was merged with PreCalculus when we went on the block system. It served as a springboard for students who also took Calculus 1 and Calculus 2 for college credit.

So patient and kind.

Richard K. is working with my ADD son and knocking it out of the park! They seem to have a good working relationship after just a few times together and we are really encouraged by his response. Continuing to look for increased confidence in our son with each lesson and can't wait to see how he does after a whole summer with him!
