I came to tutoring as a second career after retiring from full time scientific work. I have always enjoyed tutoring ? especially at the high school level. I now devote more time and effort to it than was possible before retirement. I have hundreds of hours of experience with more than 50 students. I have worked with four Fairfax County Public Schools science teachers and have picked up many of their teaching techniques. I am familiar with many of the student oriented educational sites ...
We were hesitant to use his services given he is more expensive than most but in one session he covered 3x as much material as the next best tutor and gave our son a feeling he would be able to move his grade up several letters in the last 3 weeks of school. We will definitely use him again!

He was on time and was very comprehensive. He helped familiarize more with formulas and how to apply them.
- Jesus A. from Falls Church, VA
My son is in High school AP physics, and he was having a hard time with all the terms and word problems. Even though he does well in math, he did poorly on his first quiz. Richard was able to get him back on track understanding the terms how to work through the word problems. Thanks to Richard's help my son got a 10 out of 10 on this week's quiz.
- Bryan G. from Columbia, MD
Richard was thorough and explained each problem that was understandable. I worked on college level calculus and reviewed optimization scenarios. I will be working with Richard again, when I come hone from break! Excellent review!

Richard taught calculus concepts and it helped my son tremendously. Richard was proactive in getting information on what topics my son needed help on and was ready with study material and also gave practical examples and was very clear and detailed in explaining. We will definitely use his help for more lessons.

He worked on precalculus and chemistry and my kids say he was great. He is punctual and cheerful and seems to know his stuff. This was our first lesson but my calculus student seemed relieved to be getting good help.

My daughter just got back from a tutoring session with Richard. Subject: high school AP Physics. She was amazed. After Richard explained the material, it was light a light went on in her head. She couldn't believe that material her Physics teacher made so difficult, was so easily clarified and taught by Richard.
