I contacted Richard during my teacher training year, I was anxious about taking my QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) Numeracy Skills Test because I’d always felt I ‘struggled’ with Maths at school. I found Richard’s help invaluable, not only was he able to guide me through the content of what I needed to learn in order to pass the test, he was also able to help me understand that it was not that I was ‘bad at Maths’, more that I lacked confidence in myself. Once I understood this, I successfully passed the test within a few weeks of seeing Richard.

Richard is a fantastic motivator, who not only helped increase my mathematical knowledge and understanding, but who also helped me realise that the ‘problem’ was more a psychological one. His infectious enthusiasm, knowledge and motivational skills make him an outstanding tutor and I simply cannot recommend him enough. Richard is also extremely reliable and flexible, which I especially appreciated as full time worker myself. I now feel just as confident with Maths as I do in other subjects… and that’s all down to Richard – so many thanks.
