Richard is an experienced and effective tutor. He gives you confidence in your abilities, while quickly adapting his methods to effectively teach a wide variety of topics. His sage-like knowledge, confidence inspiring resume, and gravitas helped me greatly. Furthermore, he has no trouble answering emails *quickly.*
It was the weekend before my finals when I found Richard. My math concepts were a mess. I was confused and disoriented by the sheer volume of information being crammed in a 6-month period. I was lost.
It all changed when I met Richard. The man is a mathematics giant. He is unafraid of defining complex concepts and unassuming when helping you organize yourself. A strong work ethic guides the man. He not only elucidates concepts, but provides insight on how best to use them in a effective way.
Thanks to Richard, I felt safe in the realm of mathematics once again.
