Mr. Richard Yu

About:

I was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to the United States in 1987. I enjoy playing the piano and golfing at leisure.

Education:

I got my Bachelor’s degree in Biology from UCLA, my Master’s degree in Molecular and Cell Biology from Cal Poly Pomona, my Ph.D. degree in Molecular and Cell Biology from UC Riverside, and a single subject teaching credential from Cal State, L.A.

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TEACHING:

I started teaching in 1997 when I was a Master’s degree student at Cal Poly Pomona.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT RIBÉT:  

I started teaching at Ribét in the 2013-14 school year.

Your favorite part about RIBÉT: 

(1) The administration is always supportive and encouraging in academia and sport. At the same time, it makes me feel like I am part of the family; (2) The faculty members are highly qualified and are able to develop the interest of students in the subjects; (3) The school campus is student-friendly and has enough space for conducting games, sports, and other extracurricular activities; (4) Ribét was accredited by WASC for six years at a time in 2019, something that is not easy to accomplish; and (5) Ribét offers an academically challenging environment for all students and the teachers make it a challenge for all their students to use their minds well. They make the students developmentally responsive and are sensitive to the unique developmental challenges of early adolescence and respect the needs and interests of the students.
