Richard tutored me in maths for almost 5 years through GCSE and A Levels and really pushed me to achieve what I was capable of in maths and help me get into university. I couldn’t have done it without his support and guidance, I highly recommend him.
My 9 year old has been having maths lessons with Richard through the summer holidays. He is enjoying them and his confidence is really growing with maths . We will be definitely continue with the lessons through year 5 and would highly recommend Richard .
Reply from Richard Coombes Maths Tutor: Thank you for the lovely review.
Richard has been tutoring my son for a few weeks now, and I am over the moon with his tutoring method, but I thought it would be more interesting to ask my son what he thought. He said that " Richard is an all round really great guy, he explains maths in a way that's easy to understand, the lesson's go really quickly , I'm learning more than in my average maths lesson and finally …….he makes maths enjoyable !!!" I don't think you can get a better review than that especially from a 15 year old !! I would highly recommend Richard.
Reply from Richard Coombes Maths Tutor: Thank you Jo for your lovely review.
Richard has been out to see our 9 year old a few times during the school holidays and really helped him with his maths. Most importantly our youngster actively looks forward to sessions with Richard, which obviously make learning so much easier. We can’t rate him highly enough.
Our Daughter was struggling with GCSE maths and we can’t believe the progress she has made in just 4 weeks of receiving extra tuition from Richard. Maddie’s confidence is growing every day. Richard is a great tutor, makes Maddie feel very relaxed in her learning, he gives great praise and feedback, whilst being very professional. Would highly recommend Richard as a tutor.
Reply from Richard Coombes Maths Tutor: Thank you for your lovely comments. I’m sure Maddie will continue to grow in confidence.

Richard has been tutoring our son for his GCSE for the last couple of months.
Over that time his confidence and attitude towards Maths has improved immensely.
This is due to the way Richard relates to our son and turns Maths into a fun activity.
Richard is slowly stretching our sons’ ability and this seems to be being reflected in his grades.

Really pleased with the progress that our daughter has made since having extra tuition from Mr Coombs. She has already improved in maths, going up two grades after just a few extra lessons and this has boosted her confidence a lot.

Thanks Rich for all of your help with Molly over the last two years, she gained so much in confidence and understands so much more. Richard is now tutoring our son towards his GCSE. Many thanks Richard.

I've used Richard for over 12 months and I cannot recommend his service enough. My daughter was behind in her maths and lacked confidence within the subject, which Richard has changed completely. He's polite, always on time and keeps me informed regularly on her progress. She even doesn't mind getting up early on a Saturday morning as she feels so comfortable, enjoys it and gets so much out of the lesson.

Richard's style of teaching Maths has provided invaluable to our son. In a short period of time we have seen a noticeable boost in his confidence level. Richard is organised, patient and provides constructive feedback to enhance our son's learning. His sessions are well structured, he is patient in approach and as our son comments: "...Richard provides a very helpful, effective and enjoyable way to understand Maths..." Our son is happy and we are happy to have secured Richard's services for him!
Richard has been tutoring my son Ben (going into year 9) for a few weeks and already seen great results! Richard is enthusiastic and thorough and teaches on a great level with the student. I would not hesitate to recommend such a brilliant tutor!

Richard Coombes tutored our son for just a few sessions but in that short time we saw both his grades and confidence rise. It's a shame we didn't know about his services earlier as we would have used them. We would have no hesitation in recommending Richard Coombes to other parents.
Richard is tutoring my son for A level maths, he has moved up two grades since being with Richard. He had a tutor before but didn't feel comfortable with him, so we found Richard and what a difference he has made. Friendly approachable always on time, would recommend Richard highly.
Richard has been tutoring my daughter with A Level maths for 2 months now and my only regret is that I didn’t engage him sooner. He tailors each session to her needs, provides support and feedback on her progress and has helped to boost her confidence. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Richard to anyone looking for extra help with maths in the comfort of your own home.

Richard has been tutoring our daughter since October 2017. He uses various learning methods to establish what works best for her in order to get results. Richard makes her feel relaxed and able to ask questions at anytime. As parents we find him approachable and reliable. Great tutor.
Richard has been assisting my daughter with her A Level maths and has been invaluable in helping with areas of the syllabus that she has difficulty with. He is extremely knowledgeable on the subject and is able to suggest new and alternative ways in tackling problems. He has a very friendly and relaxed approach, to such an extent that my daughter enjoys the lessons. He always responds to queries or questions via text etc. I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard to anyone needing assistance with their maths.

Richard has improved my son's Maths knowledge in a very short time. He has a great teaching style, making Maths fun and enjoyable. I would 100% recommend him.
Richard has been tutoring my eldest daughter for nearly two years, recently I asked him about some extra tuition for my youngest daughter who was struggling with some areas of maths. Richard couldn’t have been more accommodating. His style of tutoring is flexible and works with the girls either individually or together dependent upon how they are feeling on the day. He knows how to motivate them to get results and he can shift quickly between their individual needs, difference in age and learning pace. Highly recommended.
Richard has tutored my daughter for only a few weeks now but she is already showing a big improvement in her maths skills. Her confidence has improved a huge amount and this has helped her not only in maths but in her other subjects too. Richard is always on time and has assured my daughter that I can text in between lessons if she has a problem she needs help with. I fully recommend him as a tutor.

Richard carried out tutor sessions with my son in preparation for his Maths SATS. Richard built my son's confidence and he started to enjoy the subject, even requesting extra tutoring. He has a great rapport with his students and made learning enjoyable.
Richard tutored my son for his GCSE maths when my son was in year 10 as at Chase High as they take their main subjects a year early, he achieved a level 7.
Richard is a very friendly guy who put my son at ease within in a few minutes and soon my sons improvement in this subject was evident!
I intend to restart my son with Richard closer to his GCSE's in 2018 with a view to getting a level 8 or 9, thus my recommendation is a high one.
