Without Richard’s support I would not have been successful win achieving my Red Seal in Carpentry. Richard’s knowledge of the subject is incredible, therefore no superfluous content was taught, only what was needed. Which was a LOT. In addition Richard’s style of teaching was incredibly pragmatic, for example I was struggling in ways that were different from the other students, therefore he adapted his teaching style to accommodate this.

Richard genuinely wants every single one of his students to pass, to the point where he would revise troublesome subject matter with each and every one of us, using his own time if that is what he thought was needed.

I have a lot to thank Richard for, for without his time and commitment, I may not have the prospects I have today.
