Hi there!
I offer tutoring in mathematics and physics to a university level.
Tutoring in all science up to year 10 level
Tutoring in English and reading to a VCE level.
Instruction in piano up to a diploma level.

-Maths methods
-Specialist Maths
-Further maths
-University-level instruction in maths and physics.

I am a studying Mathematical Physics at the University of Melbourne.
Having always learned in a very analytical, comprehensive way, I have developed an ability to explain concepts in a range of ways, tailoring the explanation to the particular student's way of understanding.
I have always enjoyed teaching, from my very first lesson. Eucation is possibly the most important pursuit, and I love applying my love for it.

General instruction in the subject (tutor-directed), and specific instruction (guided by the course taken, or interests/needs of the student) are available. My lessons vary depending on the subject matter and needs of the student.

Plenty of practice material available.

I am happy to do remote tutoring sessions by phone, internet, etc. for students who need to keep up with their studies, but prefer to do tutoring by distance at the moment.

Mylife-long for music and the piano has led me to believe music is a gift that should be shared with all.
I have taught many students of all standards, from adults eager to learn to the young going for their AMuS in piano. I was an instructor at a music school in the South-East of Melbourne.
If you want to learn piano or music theory in a fun, practical way, you will be in good hands!

"Richard is a truly friendly and understanding tutor (especially with a slow learner, like myself) and his understanding of the math he taught me was immense and he was able to answer every question I had even if they were far beyond the scope of what he was teaching me. Richard was even able to show me mathematical proofs for each concept I asked him to show me. Furthermore, if I couldn't understand the initial approach he demonstrated in answering a question he would always show me other ways. I could not have asked for a better teacher!"
