Information about Riccardo
I am Riccardo and I am a qualified teacher. My goal as an educator is to challenge and stretch students in Mathematics and Physics.
With over 1500 hours of tutoring experience, my primary focus lies on A level, UKMT, and the most prestigious UK university entrance exams. I am a firm believer in the effectiveness of Socratic questioning, a technique that naturally steers students toward self-discovery of solutions.
Before becoming a full-time tutor, I worked for one of the highest-achieving schools in the United Kingdom, where in 2022 over 35% of students secured offers from Oxbridge. My teaching style is tailored to each individual, taking into account their goals and aspirations.
I bring extensive experience in guiding students between the ages of 13 and 18, as well as mature students enrolled in specific undergraduate mathematics and physics programs. My expertise primarily lies within mathematics and physics, spanning all strands of A level and IB Maths, Further Maths, and Physics.
Furthermore, I have provided valuable assistance to students preparing for TMUA, MAT, STEP, ENGAA, and UKMT (having previously supported multiple students in advancing to the final rounds of the British Maths Olympiad). Through my prior involvement with a prestigious UK Mathematics institute, I possess unique insights into the intricacies of these demanding university entrance exams.
