My Approach to Tutoring
My teaching style is simplicity above all, and I take a lot of inspiration from the quote “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”. My primary focus is to foster a love of learning in the pupils I support and arm them with the learning tools and strategies to flourish independently, without creating a dependence on myself. I am a passionate educator who can transmit information in an engaging and creative way, bespoke to a child’s learning style and interests. Building confidence, resilience and a ‘can-do attitude’ is at the heart of my tutoring philosophy.
Fun Facts About Me
Aside from tuition, my passions lie in sports, including Football and Mountaineering. To date I have climbed 17 peaks in total in the UK, Swiss Alps and Greenland. I was also part of the UCL football team at University and various teams outside of school. I also devote a sizeable amount of time to volunteering for organisations aiming to improve Educational opportunities in rural Africa. The current charity I work for is called Give Opportunity Global, helping to raise money to build schools in Rwanda and also provide micro-finance to help women start businesses.
My Client Testimonials
11+ Common Entrance into Highgate, Latymer & Dame Alice Owens
"We have been very pleased with Rish’s tutoring of our daughter, Martha. He clearly plans carefully for each lesson and will stick with a particular subject until he feels that Martha has really grasped it. He has also helped her develop exam technique and strategies for dealing with tricky questions. Martha herself says that Rish is great and she never has to worry about giving a wrong answer because he gives her so much encouragement. She already feels more confident in her maths lessons at school."
A Level Maths & Statistics - went from a B to an A*
"Before I began tuition, I felt much less confident in GCSE maths and statistics but after 2 months with Rish as my tutor my confidence has grown massively, and I’ve seen the difference in my grades. Rish is always reliable, punctual and flexible to accommodate the times I am available. The lessons are well structured, and I’m always challenged further on areas that I’m struggling with. In such a short time I’ve seen the positive effect tuition with Rish has had."
8+ Maths, English, Verbal & Non-Verbal
"Hi Rish, I just wanted to thank you so much for the work you have been doing with my daughter, Jemima. Her written English has improved so much, and her teacher sent her home with a certificate for being “Most Improved” with a gold star. She was so proud of herself and didn’t stop smiling all night. I can’t thank you enough and am so excited for her future!"
"It went very well. Layomi said he taught better than her teacher at school! Thanks so much. "

Gavin Fiddler – Private Tutor in South West London
I am an empathetic and enthusiastic tutor with over 1000 hours of experience and a member of the Tutor’s Association. Parents have consistently commented on my ability to inspire and build excellent rapport with their children. In all my tutorials, I endeavour to cultivate the untapped potential that is can be difficult to unlock in the very formal and hierarchical school environment. What is more, my experiences as a tutor and observations in schools have also given me a strong insight into how to develop a form of pedagogy that is congenial to tutorials but not irreconcilable with classroom teaching. ...
Luke Howarth – Professional Teacher in Central London
I took a teaching post at Harrow School in 2015, teaching IGCSEs in English Language and Literature and delivering lectures to A-level students. I was also made Director-in-Residence and Master-in-Charge of Debating. Earlier that year I graduated with a first class degree in English Language and Literature from Christ Church, Oxford, where I was one of the twelve original Reuben Scholars. My papers in Shakespeare and Beckett for Finals were classed as publishable. Throughout my time at Oxford and Harrow, I have accumulated extensive experience tutoring privately for a range of abilities, from pre-test to university admissions. Although my undergraduate degree was in the arts, I have always nurtured a healthy interest in subjects across the curriculum, having studied Further Mathematics and Physics at A Level, and I am continually excited by the prospect of facilitating the development of a student’s academic pursuits in a variety of disciplines. A constant desire to advance my own knowledge energises me as a tutor, and I believe that communicating this enthusiasm allows me to stimulate both the curiosity and diligence of my tutees. ...

Lily Burnand – Private Tutor in North London
I've been tutoring and working with children part time since I finished school in 2014, and have graduated from Oxford University, where I studied English literature. Before that, I took IB at Wellington College, in which I scored 43 out of a possible 45 points. I've tutored in London, Oxford and Hong Kong, worked as a nanny, and set up and continue to run a school sponsorship program in Nepal, which provides disadvantaged children with the opportunity to be educated in Kathmandu. For me, one of the most rewarding aspects of tutoring is helping students gain confidence in something they thought they would never understand, or felt they weren't good at, turning a daunting task into something enjoyable. I've worked with children who range from 3 to 23 years old, but have most experience with Common Entrance at 11+ and 13+. The breath of the IB course means that I'm able to teach a range of subjects to a high standard, and have great experience balancing academic work with other areas of life, as well as finding important overlaps between diverse subjects and interests. ...
Oskar Schortz – Professional Teacher in London
Having studied in a boarding school in West Sussex, where I was a deputy-head of house and School prefect, I studied Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. At university, I encountered a wide variety of disciplines and ways of thinking; from politics, to psychology to history. I completed an MSc degree in Law and Anthropology at The London School of Economics (LSE), during which I worked as an administrator for a legal research network and organised conferences for a international think tank, most notably a conference at the European Union parliament in Brussels.
Following my studies, I worked for the Department for Education in Westminster, where I advised schools on how to progress and collaborate with each other. I also began volunteering with a grassroots educational charity that mentors children from underrepresented communities through organising sports coaching and workshops.
I then went on to teach History at Rugby School, a top-tier boarding school in the Midlands, where I taught students between the ages of 13 to 18 years. I was also a pastoral tutor in a boarding house, where I was responsible for helping the sixth form students with their university and UCAS applications.

Tom Meltzer – Private Tutor in West London
I am a fourth year Physics PhD student at UCL. My occupation relies on my ability to understand complex theoretical concepts and explain them to both technical and non-technical experts.
I am a high achiever, obtaining a First Class (Hons) MPhys Theoretical Physics from The University of Sheffield. In my final year I scored the highest grade in the University for "Analytical Dynamics and Classical Field Theory" (93%). Other final year results include 88% in "Advanced Quantum Mechanics" and 84% in "Aspects of Modern Physics". I currently work in theoretical/computational quantum physics looking at electron scattering in molecules. Therefore I have a good grounding in maths, physics and programming.
I studied all three sciences, maths and further maths at A-level. For G.C.S.E I took triple science, maths and electronics (in addition to 7 other subjects).
In addition to my academic experience I have over two years corporate experience.

I left the Bank so that I could develop my technical skills, such as, quantitative analysis and programming. Due to my experience working in a professional environment I am also well equipped to advise students how to write CVs and apply themselves to industry or academia. ...
