Academic Biography

Richard holds a PhD from Carnegie Mellon University in Behavioral Decision Research and a BS in Psychology from Harvard University. He currently works at Google as a Quantitative UX Researcher on their Maps team.

A leading tutor at Signet, Richard has more than a decade of experience, guiding students of all ages and learning styles toward success in their academic careers. An expert in psychology and decision making, he brings a scientific understanding of learning and cognition to aid each student's progress and he takes seriously how confidence can matter as much as knowledge to gaining academic success. On that note, Richard has coached and mentored many struggling students through rough patches not only in their skills but also in their self-beliefs. Past students of his have then achieved perfect scores on standardized tests like the SAT, the ACT, the LSAT, and the GRE and received admissions to leading undergraduate and professional schools such as Harvard, Brown, and Columbia Universities.

In his spare time, he enjoys swimming and weight training, watching films, and playing modern strategic board games. An avid photographer, he has self-published some of his own artwork through a popular online book-maker.
