Richmond Academy in Zimbabwe

Education is what we care about We have been in operation on a smaller scale since 2009. We have met the educational needs of our clients from creche level to A level.

Special emphasis has been placed on English Language, English Literature and Geography, though we are working on adding the other subjects being done by students at the different levels. Our aim is to be established as a home school that caters for the wholistic needs of our children. For now though, give us a buzz on +263 772 963 490 and we will see how we can be of assistance to you.

Operating as usual


Brush up on O Level English Language via whatsapp to be exam-ready. Every lesson includes exercises to be marked by me and can be individualised to suit the needs of each student. English Literature and Geography are also on offer. Get in touch on 0772963490 (whatsapp) for enquiries


Tip number 2 for answering comprehension questions is linked to the first one. When you are reading you may not understand the meaning of every word as you go. As a matter of fact, you may actually be seeing some words for the very first time! Before you start hyperventilating, there IS a way around this.

Don't try to decode it in isolation. Look at the words that are around the word that you don't know. Very often what is being talked about will point to the meaning of the word. This is called finding meaning in the CONTEXT of the story. Doing this will help you with the question that requires you to define some terms found in the text.


One of the questions that we have come across is, how does a student even understand what a comprehension story is all about in the first place? Before looking at exam questions and figuring out the key terms there, an appreciation of the story is key. We've decided to go right back to basics. We'll post the tips that we share with our students!

The first tip is:
Read the story!

Captain Obvious to some but it actually is important to fully read the story at least once. While skim reading (scanning for the important details) is helpful, you need to know the whole story to be able to answer questions on it.


Even though it seems June exams are still far away, they really are just around the corner. Don't go to battle unprepared! This holiday we are doing a crash revision programme in 'O' level English Language and Geography. Get in touch to be a part of it.

Education is the leading of human souls to what is best, and making what is best out of them.

John Ruskin


Home based education from primary school need not be a headache. Parents have been doing it since time immemorial! Here is a little information on how we go about it:

For all of our primary school students we are using a Curriculum Support institution that has been around since Rhodesia. Parents have the freedom to choose what subjects they want their children to do from a wide pool of options. Grade 7 pupils write exams at any Zimsec registered school in October with other learners. We can give suggestions for after school activities where children build on their interests and social skills. Our fees are also quite affordable at $200 per month. 31/01/2017

Homeschool...a thing of the past or the future of affordable education in Zimbabwe? We're leaning towards the latter. We are here to improve children's learning experiences through structured home schooling programmes. Small classes manned by experienced staff mean more individualised attention for each child. 2017 is looking really good!


Opportunity! Does anyone have a dining room (or any other room) in Harare they'd be willing to rent out for educational purposes during the week? The ability to accommodate 10 people is a definite plus. If making some extra money tickles your fancy please get in touch asap. Thank you!


Something is brewing for the new year! We're excited and will share soon. Thank you for your patience and continued support. Lets end the year with a bang exam classes!


Happy holidays everyone! In the coming year we will hit the ground running! God bless you all.


Happy mother's day to all the mamas out there. We celebrate you all today. God bless


Good morning one and all! Enjoy a well deserved break this weekend


Exams have begun already. We wish everyone who is writing all the best. Keep reading till the end.


As exam time closes in, have your kids been studying? Each subject should get some attention every day.


In all my years as a tutor one of the things that break my heart is hearing children tear themselves down because their teachers have told them they are useless and will never do well. Please help your children to understand that the power is in their hands. Practice really does make perfect.


It has often been said that failure to prepare is preparing to fail.

There is no success without preparation...preparation is not an event, it is a process.

If anybody knows a mature business studies teacher please give us their contact details or have them contact us. They are urgently needed. Thank you
