Information About Richard - Dursley tutor
This is how 3 referees rated Richard:
I am a computer science graduate and former software engineer that got out of the 'rat-race' in 2001 to develop my then hobby teaching martial arts into a professional coaching career. I now run a very successful Academy teaching martial arts, self protection, and personal development to students of all ages.
Having established my school I had the time to develop my photography hobby too, to the point when in 2011 I gained a distinction from the Royal Photographic Society. As a result, I now also spend some of my time as a professional photographer too, focussing mainly on teaching others, both individuals and group workshops.
In my former career as a software developer I was also responsible for writing technical documentation and running training courses worldwide. I'm very comfortable with planning, organising and delivering courses up to a very high standard.
As a photographer I have been teaching now for about 7 years, I run workshops for all levels, and also individual one-to-one training tailored to students from complete novices up to those approaching Royal Society standard.
I'm a high-ranking martial arts instructor (6th degree black belt with 30 years experience) and have been teaching now for well over 20 years, with students of all ages from 5 up to those in their 60's. Alongside my own school I teach courses and seminars to groups of all sizes. I've taught in schools, worked with police and youth groups etc. I often teach private lessons to individuals, both from my own school and those with no prior experience.
Having successfully escaped the rat-race to pursue my own goals it's fair to say I've learned a lot about personal development. I've also completed a number of courses and seminars with world-class coaches such as Anthony Robbins. I now share this experience with a number of private clients for personal development and life coaching to help them with motivation, goals and productivity in their own careers.
I have a current DBS (CRB) check and can provide references relating to all aspects of my coaching.
Friendly, informal and always tailored to the specific needs of the individual.
Happy to chat about your individual requirements prior to booking so please get in touch with any questions :-)
If you're looking for photography, business or personal development coaching I'm happy to chat on the phone, skype or obviously to meet in person (I do charge for travel time & expenses if you're not coming to me).
