Anazele reviewed 8 days ago:
I had a great experience with Richard. He is clearly very knowledgeable, and he makes sure that you understand concepts and steps before moving on. I also really appreciated how well prepared he was and the study guide he prepared/built for me. Would definitely recommend!
kkmann reviewed 11 days ago:
Excellent tutor, comes well prepared, provides you with resources, notes and a study plan. He explains things simply and well. Would highly recommend!
ValJ reviewed 18 days ago:
I have to admit, the price rate made me hesitate, but I'm glad I took it. He's a lot better than most tutors I've gone to. Not saying the other tutors were bad, most were nice, but Richard was both nice and effective. Right away, he gives you resources for further independent learning. Unlike other tutors, I believe he really does care about the student, and wants to see them succeed. He helps you form a plan to study for the finals. My only error was that I only went to him this late in the semester...but better late than never! Professional, patient and polite. Would recommend!
niezzi reviewed 19 days ago:

sillysam13 reviewed 22 days ago:
I really enjoyed how he writes down everything he recommends. He was very patient, understanding and never made me feel like I was dumb for not knowing something-- which I hold to the highest of importance while seeking academic help. I would recommend his services to anyone in search of help.

NicoleProvost reviewed 9 months ago:
I used to be very worried about the upcoming exam. Thanks to Richard, some concepts that I struggled with prior to our session are very clear to me now. What I struggled with for hours, Richard helped me to understand in a matter of minutes. i highly recommend him.
richardsetiadi reviewed 9 months ago:

tasha123 reviewed 11 months ago:
I had an excellent experience with Reza S. Very clear notes that were given to you at the end of the session and came prepared with multiple different resources for my STATS 251 course. I also took Differential Calculus and Multivariable Calculus with him in my second year and he was extremely helpful. Highly recommend. -Natasha
madfran reviewed 1 year ago:
He is extremely nice and fun! I can't believe how hard I thought my course was. If you are struggling with stats I assure you he will make it way less scary and give you tons of resources to bang through it.
Jkhorn reviewed 1 year ago:
I had a very good experience with Richard as a tutor. I did a group tutoring session, and the entire time he made sure both of us were comfortable with the material before moving forward. He gave us a lot of useful resources to use to improve our skills, and overall restored the confidence we needed to continue working hard in the course. He also gave each of us a copy of neatly taken detailed notes to review after the session. Overall was very helpful!
sallynewtonmasonn reviewed 1 year ago:
Richard is a very good tutor, he's familiar with what you are currently doing in your course. Being familiar with what you you are currently doing in your class, your lectures, and your syllabus is very important if you want effective tutoring help, and that makes Richard a better tutor than others. He cam e prepared, with our current Course note book text, and many past exams. He gives structured advice on what you should focus on and and explains things step by step. Thanks :)
josduncan reviewed 1 year ago:
Extremely helpful tutor session. Only had just over an hour but managed to get through most of the learning concepts expected for the exam, so he was able to make good use of time. He also recommended effective study plans and extra resources. I also got to keep many pages of notes he wrote during the session to use as future reference. He also helped with my current "OSH" that I was very stuck on. I have a hard time passing my calculus exams and after this session I feel much more prepared. Would definitely recommend! Thank you!
zalbert reviewed 1 year ago:
I needed help with TRU Math 1141, he did a great job at explaining any trouble that I had and I really enjoyed the tutoring. He helped me with any questions that I had and elaborated well.
smakhov reviewed 1 year ago:
Great experience, Richard is very passionate about math and staticstics. Was very pleased to work with him. If you want to catch up with the material on a course, it is an excellent choice to get help from him.
sare reviewed 1 year ago:
He is very good at understanding exactly what a question is asking and how to solve it. I received much help from him such as explaining steps to me that were needed to solve any question I gave him.
JillianTrach reviewed 1 year ago:

blakecarscadden reviewed 1 year ago:
Great tutor. Really knows his stuff, writes everything down so that you see each individual step. Highly recommend!
Will_Kirby reviewed 1 year ago:
My experience was excellent. As soon as we sat down it was obvious that Richard knew exactly what he was talking about, from years of experience. I needed help with Math 105, and Richard started by giving me a large amount of extremely helpful resources to prepare with. His patient and step by step walkthroughs of problems and concepts were easy to follow and understand. Furthermore, each problem we did was chosen by Richard for its applicability to understanding larger concepts, and many were drawn from challenging parts of past midterms and exams.
oediri reviewed 1 year ago:
After readin Richard's biography, and other students testimonials about him, I was instantly sold to the prospect of following my regular lectures with additionally tutor material. Richard did not disappoint, but rather exceeded my expectations with his methodical teaching methods, his clear cut notes, his grasp of mathematics as a whole and his welcome package, where he introduces the subject of mathematics with a sense of ease.
I definitely grasped more than what I did whilst in classes, and I recommend anyone else who struggles with any aspect of Mathematics as a whole to meet up with Richard, and assess the topics again, with him by your side. I guarantee he won't disappoint.
laxmack reviewed 1 year ago:
Very friendly, patient, and well prepared. He knows the general schedule of the courses because he has been tutoring them for so long, and on top of that he also keeps up to date with courses through his other students as well as the online course material and layouts. This shows his capability to help us students excel in our courses week by week but keeping an eye on the major goal such as midterms and tests.
clairejean reviewed 1 year ago:
My experience with Reza has been excellent, he helped me with STAT 200. He was easy to talk to and provided multiple explanations for topics to help me understand better. He also supplied me with many alternative resources for my studying (videos, texts, websites, and past exams). Highly recommended!
jordanbates reviewed 1 year ago:
I met with Richard for the first time today and I am confident I have found a tutor to count on for the remainder of the term for MATH101. You can easily tell just how knowledgable he is with mathematics and has a genuine concern for your understanding! He also provides you with notes and resources, including videos to watch and worksheets to do, so that you can really practice the material and obtain the best understanding. Based on what I have seen so far, I truly recommend his tutoring service!
xftang reviewed 1 year ago:
Richard is amazing! He is patient and very motivational. This session comes to be well prepared and organized, and he knows the materials (MATH200) very well. He is very resourceful, familiar with exam-style questions and could answer hard questions immediately.
Armak reviewed 1 year ago:
It was great, Reza (Richard) was well prepared, had a clear understanding of the material (math 255/215). Both me and my friend walked out the session feeling more confident for our exam (we are huge slackers). Furthermore Reza is very kind and also has a great sense of humor which helps with the learning experience. If you are not prepared for your exams Reza is your man.
Alice04 reviewed 1 year ago:
Richard is an amazing tutor. He works through problems with efficiency and ease, however always stops to make sure that you are understanding the broader concepts of the entire course, rather than just how to solve specific problems. He is very knowledgeable and by far the best tutor I have met on HelpHub so far. I would recommend him to anyone needing help at UBC!
farazdamji reviewed 1 year ago:
Richard is very knowledgeable in mathematics and has a solid understanding of the subject. He explains concepts clearly in an easy to understand fashion and offers good explanations when solving a variety of problems.
creightonlau reviewed 1 year ago:
Richard is patient with his students and very motivational in helping the student continue to strive for success within their academic studies. Helps students clearly with certain problems in a calm manner that doesn't rush the student if they don't understand the certain material. He works step by step for the problems that the students don't get and doesn't rush to the next topic if the student doesn't get the previous one. He works patiently until the student fully masters the material, to ensure that he is helping the student succeed in every way possible!
MAMMY reviewed 2 years ago:
Richard was very patient and friendly. I was in a bit of a panic and he was able to calm me down so that I could listen to what he was saying. I wish I had contacted him earlier in the term to fully benefit from his guidance. Definitely recommend him. My only advise is don't wait until the last minute!
danico reviewed 2 years ago:

Richard has a wealth of knowledge and can answer any questions you have clearly and to the point. I like how he breaks everything down step-by-step, walks you through it, and he reads your learning style so it makes sense to you. I look forward to a few more sessions and would recommend him to anyone.
Jac reviewed 2 years ago:
He is very helpful and well prepared. He points out useful/helpful resources that you most likely didn't know about. Also, he helps you find out what you need help with most, instead of wasting time on examples and topics that you already know well.

You can rate a tutor whenever you pay them. After every tutoring session or payment, we will send you a text message or e-mail to ask whether you recommend them or not.
Once you verify your profile, you can request phone tutoring calls. We will first call the tutor to request the call, and if accepted, we'll call your number and merge the two calls. You only start getting charged when the calls are merged.
If the tutor is online, you'll see a green light in the Video Call button. The tutor will see and hear the incoming call on the site. If they are offline, we will send them a text message and e-mail asking them to go online. Once they become available, we'll notify you so you can call them.
