Richard has been tutoring my daughter who is in year 9 since September. Her confidence in maths has increased massively, he makes the sessions interesting and fun. He has a great way of getting the best out of her without her realising. Would definitely recommend him! 5⭐️
Highly recommended. Richard has recently started to tutor my son and it is already having a positive effect. His enthusiasm and ability to use strategies to make the session fun are extremely effective. I just wish I had started these sessions earlier.
Brilliant tutor. Kids are flying under Richard’s tuition, professional manner but really approachable. My children love their sessions with him and have really grown in confidence! I can’t recommend him highly enough.
Richard has been tutoring my son for some time he has improved my sons maths skills dramatically and improving his exam skills also.
He was helping my son achieve a high score in his GCSE results. With great regret with the Coronavirus my sons exams have been cancelled but we truly believe that with Richard’s help he would have achieved this
I would like to thank Richard for his amazing manner and skill teaching my 15 year old so well and professionally and keeping his attention in every lesson. I would highly recommend his services to anybody with confidence
Thanks so much for your help

Richard has been tutoring me for the past year and I can honestly say it’s been very helpful. His was of tutoring is very engaging and he really helped in prepare for my a levels. Would 100% recommend!
Our son was struggling with A Level maths (mechanics especially), after just a few lessons with Richard he felt more confident with a greater understanding and actually looked forward to his weekly lesson. Richard was very understanding and patient.... He is very knowledgeable in his field, I would like to thank him for his support with Ben and would recommend him highly.
I can’t thank Richard enough for his help with my daughters mathes GCSEs , he’s gave her so much confidence and made her feel at ease in her tutor lessons . Highly recommend this guy , Thankyou so much .
Richard Coombs has been tutoring my daughter for the last five months. At her parents evening this week and following her school report she is already been predicted grade 8 in GCSE maths after speaking to a maths teacher he expects that she may achieve a possible grade 9. I am sure that without Richard‘s help these predicted grades would be much lower therefore I can highly recommend Richard as a tutor in maths. Mr H
Richard’s approach towards tutoring my daughter is very friendly and engaging. He teaches in a calm, thoughtful and methodical way, adapting his teaching style to meet her individual way of learning. He has helped my daughter to gain greater confidence in her maths studies, and shows great patience in explaining clearer ways to understand and answer problematic maths questions.
Richard has been tutoring our daughter for the last 5 months. She has come on so much, the improvements are showing and have been noticed in her work. We are very happy with his teaching methods. Very easy to talk to and very helpful. 5 Star service.
Reply from Richard Coombes Maths Tutor: Thank you for your lovely review. I’m sure she will continue to improve.
Richard has been tutoring both my daughters with mixed abilities for the last few months. He has the ability of understanding his students and getting the best out of them. He is professional, reliable and passes his passion for maths on to his students. I would definitely recommend him.
Mr Coombes has been tutoring my son for his GCSE maths for 3 months now. My son is enjoying his lessons as he gets on well with Mr Coombes, he makes lessons very relaxed and enjoyable while teaching him well and giving him the confidence and support to push his grades up higher. We can't recommend Mr Coombes enough and hope he is able to tutor our other children in the future.
My son has been tutored by Rich for a couple of months and already has made a vast improvement with his maths - Rich has a great rapport with him and has done wonders with my son so far- would totally recommend Rich to anyone whose child struggles with maths and would benefit from one to one tuition
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.
