Having started lessons with Richard in the Autumn of year 11, my son has increased in confidence in his understanding of maths and physics for GCSE. Richard has provided a sound foundation for these subjects, was happy to teach and revise topics that have been omitted from school lessons and built my son’s knowledge and interest considerably. Richard is a very good communicator, attends for lessons as arranged and provides workshops in the run up to Exams. Highly recommend.

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. My daughter 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.

We are happy with the teaching and support from Richard. My daughter is benefiting from the science sessions and she is beginning to have more understanding of some of the tricky concepts in physics.

Excellent tutor – has high expectations and has greatly increased my daughters confidence in her maths abilities already.

Richard has just tutored my daughter for AS level physics. My daughter found Richard to be very easy to understand and very patient. They got on really well and she was getting mostly A’s in the practice papers she did for him prior to the actual exams. This was a great improvement on the mock exams she took prior to Richard’s tuition sessions. Richard is very flexible with sessions and will try to accommodate where possible. I would recommend Richard to anyone looking for a physics tutor.

I am really pleased with the improvements made by my daughter after attending sessions with Richard. She is much more confident discussing the subject now and has seen a real improvement in the standard of her work. This is despite only having a small number of sessions quite late in the year. We will be returning next academic year for A2 level Physics.

Excellent tutor, Sessions are always fun and enjoyable. Richard provides the detail required in answers; and his explanations in especially difficult topics are clear and concise!

Richard tutored my daughter through her maths and physics GCSEs. He was an excellent tutor and was key to her getting As in both subjects. Highly recommend!
