I have a single server running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition in a small business with 10 client computers on the local network.  These local computers are running as Thin Clients using Remote Desktop (TS) to the server.  

One user needs access to RD on the Server via the Internet (from home).  I do NOT want to enable RD access on the internet for all local network RD users.  I have tried configuring and using RD Web Access & RD Gateway, but all RD users still have access via the internet.  Is there any way to do what I'm trying to do, & if so, how?

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

It's always safer to use RDP over a VPN.  I would disable RDP on your router, and setup a VPN for that user.  Then once the user is connected properly via the VPN, they can easily RDP.
