Matt is a warm, engaging and experienced tutor who believes in the power of a personally tailored approach. He enjoys finding new ways to present tired subject matter and preparing his own materials to best suit his tutees’ needs, and loves nothing more than seeing a pupil flourish, whether that means getting into the school of their dreams or discovering a love of learning that will stay with them long past the end of their formal education.
He has over fifteen years’ experience working as an educator from primary age to sixth form and has had success preparing tutees for entrance and scholarship exams at some of London’s most competitive schools, including Alleyn’s, Dulwich College, City of London, Whitgift, Trinity and King’s.
He is also an award-winning novelist, journalist and memoirist and is soon to undertake a PhD in Creative Writing.
In his own words: “Tutoring is hugely rewarding work that offers tutees and tutors alike the chance to delve deeper into their subject than is often possible in a classroom. I love the chance to work with young people, often across school years, to be their champion, and to help them discover a way of learning that works best for them.”
