Fantastic tutor who helped me with with GCSE Maths and Further Maths. My confidence has grown hugely thanks to Richard’s knowledge of the subject, patience and flexible approach. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Student (Durham) Reviewing Richard’s tutoring 2021

I had tutoring sessions with Richard for just over 5 years. When I started with him, I was in set 3 maths and within a few months, I had been moved up to set 1. For GCSE and A level, Richard taught my Maths and Physics which I achieved 9’s and A*’s in. I could not have achieved these results without him. He knew how to break complex topics down into smaller, easier to understand blocks. I highly recommend Richard to anyone looking for tutoring services.

Parent (Durham) Reviewing Richard’s tuition 2020

Richard has a wide knowledge of maths and the sciences. He was always punctual and efficient. The lessons were tailored to my daughters needs and he made sure that she understood the methods before moving on. His teaching made a huge difference to her grade in just a few months.
I would definitely recommend Richard.

Richard provided an excellent tutoring service to my daughter during the run up to A Level exams. He had a calm manner and explained his subject well. Emma worked well under his guidance and as a result of their combined hard work, she achieved an A in her exam. I would recommend Richard as a tutor.

Parent (Belmont) Reviewing Richard’s tuition 2017

Richard is an enthusiastic and thorough tutor. His teaching methods are highly effective and my son actually enjoys physics tutorials with him, so much so that his predicted A level grade has already significantly increased. In addition to the core physics subjects, Richard also ensures that his tutoring includes exam technique and getting the best possible marks for each area/question. He comes highly recommended, and often has a waiting list, so early application is best!

Parent (Lanchester) Reviewing Richard’s tuition 2017

Richard is an extremely professional tutor who prepared my son for his A level physics exams. Richard quickly assessed his strengths and weaknesses and developed his understanding of the subject using a variety of teaching methods which gave him much needed confidence in sitting the exam. I cannot recommend Richard enough for his dedication, reliability and ability to inspire his students – many thanks.

Parent (Chester-le-Street) Reviewing Richard’s tuition 2016

I highly recommend Richard. He is first and foremost totally passionate about his subject area and this comes through in his lessons. He works really hard to identify needs and provide the right level of support, he also takes time to provide homework which encouraged me to study even more. Richard provided clarity right from the start in the contracting stage and then delivered as promised, always on time and very reliable. I enjoyed working with Richard and he in turn improved my confidence levels and enjoyment of the subject.

We contacted Richard in February 2015 at a time when our son was struggling badly with the AS Level Physics syllabus and not being afforded the required support by his school, despite our best efforts! He had previously attained a strong A at GCSE but his confidence and grasp of the subject had drained away in the subsequent 6 months. As a result of working with Richard on a weekly (and more near exam time!) basis, he got a borderline A/B result at AS and at the time of writing we are awaiting his final A level grade we are very confident that it will be the A or strong B needed to help gain access to his first choice university. Richard was very patient, understanding and good to work with. We would strongly recommend him.
