Rick Wiltshire is a graduate from the University of Manchester with a 2:1 degree in biological sciences. Prior to working for Newell Tuition, Rick spent some years working as a private tutor and a cover supervisor in various secondary schools throughout Manchester. Now only doing tuition full time, he finds one-to-one tuition more fulfilling and much more rewarding as he is able to watch the progress of his tutees.
Outside of work Rick has a passion for music and drama. He is the guitarist of two separate bands: “Six Ways to Sunday” – an alternative rock band with jazz influences, and “40,000 Leagues” – a progressive metal band that has recently released their first E.P. He has played guitar and bass for nearly 14 years and has ambitions to one day learn to play the piano as well.
Rick is also a member of the drama group “The Actor’s Lab” as well as an ex-member of “Heald Green Theatre Company”; having performed in many plays and sketches with both groups. He has also been part of several student films, independent short films and been an extra in several TV commercials.
