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.

Rick has been working with our son, 8 years, for almost an entire school year so far. We had just relocated from a non-English speaking country and our son was very behind academically. He was lost at school and his confidence was crumbling, which was beyond heartbreaking to see. Finding Rick was like wining the lottery! In a short amount of time, our son is excelling in reading, writing and mathematics and his confidence is back on track. He looks forward to every tutoring session and adores/respects Rick as a teacher and a friend. Rick is experienced, professional, intelligent, dependable, organized, joyful and punctual. I will forever be grateful to Rick and HIGHLY recommend him as a tutor for any age.
