UKMT 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.
As a PGCE-qualified teacher, Riccardo brings substantial experience from the classroom to his tutoring practice. His MA in STEM Education ensures that students receive top-notch instruction that is both research-based and tailored to their individual needs. Riccardo has considerable experience teaching students across the age range 13 to 18, as well as older students on select undergraduate maths and physics courses. His speciality lies within maths and physics, where he has taught all paths of A level and IB Maths, Further Maths and Physics. He has equally assisted students in TMUA, STEP, ENGAA, MAT and UKMT (previously supporting multiple students through to the final stages of the British Maths Olympiad). His previous work at a top UK Maths institute has enabled him to gain a unique insight into these most demanding university entrance exams.
"We really struggled to find a mathematics tutor that could add value on Cambridge's STEP Entrance exam until we met Riccardo. His experience with this particular exam makes all the difference, and my son always mentioned how incredibly helpful his insights and tips were for sitting it."
"Riccardo is the only tutor I met to date that was really able to help me approach the problems in the later stages of UKMT Maths. Really grateful for his support - thanks Riccardo! "
"It has been a wonderful experience working with Riccardo. His professionalism and expertise in mathematics is sensational. My son regularly mentioned that he explained certain problem-solving approaches in a way that was never taught at school, and not even in the textbooks!"
