Academic Biography

Richard has been a private/peer-tutor for currently more than 8 years, during which time he has helped more than 100 fellow students and clients improve their grades in and their understandings of various academic subjects - all for the long term. A graduate of Harvard College (with an AB in Psychology), Richard was a National Merit Scholarship Commended Student as well as valedictorian of his NYC high school, where he achieved perfect and near-perfect scores on national exams like the SAT, the SAT II Exam in Latin in 2002, the National Latin Exam, the NY State Spanish Regents Exam, and the AP Calculus AB exam. Most recently, as a research assistant completing his own applications to graduate school, Richard scored a near-perfect 740/800 on the Math section and a perfect 800/800 on the Verbal section of the GRE. Academically, he most enjoys finding similarities between subjects as disparate as the social sciences, the visual arts, business, and language-studies. He is currently a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Social and Decision Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University.
