Information about Matthew

Highly experienced (> 1500hrs tutoring, > 4000hrs teaching) full-time tutor and qualified teacher of English. After graduating from the University of Cambridge with a BA in English Literature, I taught and lectured at undergraduate summer schools and then worked as a teacher for three years in comprehensive schools in Cambridge and Lincoln. While working in the latter I graduated from the Teach First Leadership Development Programme, gaining my PGCE from Nottingham University. I was heavily involved in local educational initiatives and the provision of professional development opportunities for other teachers. I was the English department literacy representative for the school, and developed strategies to aid the cross-curricular teaching of literacy.

I am passionate about my subject and aim to share my enjoyment of English with my tutees. Through developing a solid knowledge base, and then embedding skills through practice, questioning and a tailored and well planned curriculum, I aim to produce accelerated progress in all my students.

Availability: 7 days per week.

After School

Willing to travel: 8 miles

Experience: BA English Literature, University of Cambridge
PGCE, University of Nottingham
Teach First Ambassador.

I have taught at all levels from KS2 to undergraduate for over 6 years, with 3 years of experience as a secondary teacher at comprehensive schools in Cambridge and Lincoln. I have also taught at a private London sixth form. I am also an Ambassador of the Teach First Leadership Development Programme.

I have excellent knowledge, and experience, of all major exam boards. I have prepared pupils for common entrance exams, 11+, coached students through coursework, advised and tutored undergraduate and postgraduate students and taught English as a second language in the City of London and for IELTS. GCSE results last year were 100% grades 8-9, and I prepared students for entrance exams including Latymer School, Harrow, St Paul’s School and King’s College School - all of whom were successful. My students have gone on to study at Oxford, Cambridge and Columbia Universities among many others. I also teach advanced writing skills to professionals in law, academia and business.
