profile-checkedUKMT and University Entrance Exams Expert

Having taught at one of the top performing schools of the UK, where more than 35% of the students received an offer from Oxbridge in 2023, Riccardo later joined JTC Education as a full-time professional tutor to challenge and stretch mathematics and physics students. His expertise is strongly focussed on A level, IB DP, UKMT and top UK university entrance exams. As a strong believer in Socratic questioning - which naturally leads students to discover results by themselves - Riccardo takes pride in helping students not only master challenging concepts, but also develop a genuine passion for learning. His 1-1 teaching style is thoroughly personalised and highly dependent on each learner and their objectives.
