Meet Richard

I have been tutoring children since 1980. I love doing it and have had a lot of success teaching children. I enjoy teaching and I want my students to enjoy our lessons too. I have a great deal of respect for homeschooling and prefer tutoring those who are home-schooled. I am very good with shy or nervous children. I'm also good with children who have become discouraged and dislike doing schoolwork. I have 11 students I'm tutoring now, from my youngest student who is 4 years old, up to one who is 15 years old (I've been helping the 15-year-old since he was 10), and one adult guitar students. My after-school hours and weekends are quite full now, so I'd like to get homeschooling students or children I can work with during the day some other way.

Mr. Rick has been our children tutor for almost 1 year and I can't say enough how amazed we are by his patience, teaching style and empathy. Our 7 year old became a first grader that loves to read and write stories for fun. He was also a tremendous help with math and phonics. After a few months, our 4 years old was so excited by all the work her big brother was doing with Mr. Rick, that she he started to teach her a few minutes here and there and now she is a pre-K able to read K-1st grade books! It's not just about the academics, but the motivation and work ethics that Mr. Rick helped to instill in our children. I would strongly recommend him to any family looking for a private teacher. Kudos to Mr. Rick!
