About Ritchard

Encouraging, experienced, enthusiastic tutor

With proper guidance, there are no good or bad students.
My tutees receive genuine encouragement, and guidance
which allows them to build the confidence to succeed.

About me

Hello my name is Ritchard Ouma and my main speciality and reason for being a successful tutor is in helping students to achieve high grades in upcoming exams. In the past, I have tutored a number of students before their important GCSE, A level, IB exams and their parents and guardians contacting me to help boost their results. I start by getting to know the student, reason for their performance and organise a revision plan for the coming weeks or days. In my experience a majority of students require guidance in exam technique and an in depth look at core concepts. I have also found that students in competitive environment under pressure can end up feeling demoralised and loss faith in their own ability. However, I believe with the right kind of encouragement and teaching, students show remarkable progress and go on to achieve A*s, As.***, or 7s.

My Experience

I have been tutoring for over 5 years and have experience of teaching in both classrooms and on one-to-one basis. I have taught a variety of subjects to a variety of age groups, clocking up 1000+ hours of tuition I've also acted as a mentor to students who have successfully applied to top independent schools and Russell Group universities, including Imperial College London. I am currently a top tutor for a prestigious London tutoring company (Bright Young Things). I have experience of teaching students attending a variety of schools from prestigious private schools Beneden School, to grammar schools, Bexleyheath grammar school. These experiences have allowed me to identify where students require help and which learning style to adopt. I am extremely organised and plan each lesson meticulously. I have an excellent track record of helping students achieving high grades in a very short amount of time. I have worked with a number of elite clients, with a very positive response.

My approach

One of the main reasons for my excellent track record is that I pay close attention to my clients and provide excellent guidance. Through high level lesson plans, offer flexibility and a good understanding of my students, I help students achieve their potential. As a tutor, it is my role not just to teach but also provide students with emotional support and guidance, which in turn is seen through an improvement in their learning. My focus is always on each individual’s needs and in this way I have helped numerous students make sense of subjects that were previously a mystery to them. Both parents and pupils alike have described me as ‘enthusiastic, ‘passionate’ and ‘inspiring’ – a reflection of the energy and professionalism I endeavour to bring to all of my sessions.

Tutoring experience

I started tutoring while at high school in Budapest, Hungary. I have lived all over the world in exotic countries like Kenya, Pakistan, Hungary, and Switzerland but I had the good fortune to attend a private international school in Budapest, Hungary where I first began tutoring. While studying towards 7s in my International Baccalaureate (IB) courses, I began by tutoring my younger classmates. After moving to London to study as an engineer at Imperial College London, one of the top ten universities in the world, I began sharing my hard-won expertise in exam technique through part-time tutoring. Teaching children has become my passion and I am now a full-time professional tutor.

I started working with a number of high profile clients after getting good reviews and recommendations as well as through working with elite tutoring companies such as Bright Young Things. I regularly teach students attending London’s top private schools, with excellent results.


I am a full-time professional tutor with an excellent track record helping students to achieve their academic aims.


I hope this short self-exposition has demonstrated to you that I am qualified and eager to help your child to succeed in the education and life.

Thank you for your consideration I hope to hear from you soon.

Tutoring our church youth group

Written by Aurore D
We booked Richard to help with a revision week we were running for our young people at church. He was great at tutoring in a range of science subjects and levels, from year 9 up to AS Chemistry and Biology. It was a massive help having Richard being able to swap between subjects and levels so easily and each of the young people all benefitted from his tutoring.

Their exams are still to come, but they certainly had breakthroughs in their understanding of certain concepts and also in their confidence of facing their upcoming exams.

IB Biology Internal Assesment

I would highly recommend Richard. He is extremely knowledgeable on the IB and the IB criteria. He has guided my daughter through her Internal Assessment with allot of heart, amazing knowledge and was there at any time she needed him even though he has his own busy schedule he put her forward in order for her to achieve excellence to get into some top universities in the uk. We cannot thank him enough for in a short time to achieve the best possible. We now await her final grade and we know she will do well.
