Initially we contacted Rich for Chemistry GCSE provision but Rich was invaluable as could support my son in Biology and Physics also. My son achieved superb grades in all his science results and we attribute much of this to Rich’s guidance. It was well worth the money. Rich would always ask what my son wanted to cover before the tutorial and was always fully prepared. Pain free too, as my son was always enthusiastic for the tutorials (which is a miracle in itself) and achieved an A in Chemistry GCSE!
Rich made chemistry make sense! He explained things logically and also taught me how to answer the exam questions and having tutorials with Rich meant I wasted less time with my revision! It was good to go through previous exam papers together and then I knew what the examiners were looking for. I could learn stuff from memory but you need to apply what you’ve learnt in answering the question…Rich helped me do that. He made chemistry bearable! After a tutorial with Rich and he had explained something I hadn’t understood in school I thought “that is much easier than I thought before” Why didn’t my teacher just say that?!”

Everything on the site is so easy to use and accessible. There are loads of different ways to learn and revise with all the different tutorials and worksheets! Not only that, but Rich’s analogies make chemistry much easier to understand!
Rich was excellent at explaining things in a way that I could understand. He breaks the topics down so that they are not as challenging
Richard has enabled my daughter to grow in confidence. His professional, approachable, easy going manner has made learning fun. He is always polite, considerate and adjusts the lesson to fit with her needs. He has taken her through past papers and covered topics that she is currently working on and this has enabled her to grow in the subjects she has completed with him. I would highly recommend him as a tutor.
