About me

Hey there! I'm Matt and I'm currently in my final year of Theology and Religion at Durham University. I'm passionate about theology, especially understanding Christian doctrine in light of the challenges and interests of the modern day. I also have a strong background in other major world religions, taking religious studies at both GCSE and A-Levels which focused heavily on Islamic Studies.

Hey there! I'm Matt and I'm currently in my final year of Theology and Religion at Durham University. I'm passionate about theology, especially understanding Christian doctrine in light of the challenges and interests of the modern day. I also have a strong background in other major world religions, taking religious studies at both GCSE and A-Levels which focused heavily on Islamic Studies. I have a passion for sharing and teaching about religion as I currently tutor informally in Durham, and aim to work in a field which will advance religious literacy. Due to this, I am passionate about deepening people's understandings of different world religions, pushing myself and others to look past stereotypes to understand the nuances which makes religions fascinatingly internally and externally diverse.

Outside of my studies I enjoy watching, teaching and participating in a number of combat sports, as well as grabbing a hot drink in one of the many coffee shops around Durham!

About my sessions

My lessons aim to be flexible based around the specific needs of the student. I understand the pressures of writing to exam guidelines, however, and as such I would always want to work towards answering these questions while still exploring the open-ended topics that such questions push us towards. I will always want to work with the student to understand their specific needs, and as such lessons will be planned around these as opposed to simply following an exam-boards specification. When delivering lessons we will work together towards answering a longer question, giving the background necessary to any more difficult aspects and then encouraging the student towards autonomy of response. Between lessons I am happy to mark any work we have produced, as well as create essay plans which cover the key areas of our discussions. Crucially, I am to have a conversation rather than a lecture, as I have found I learn and retain more information when I have been able to ask open questions and explore this, as opposed to rigidly following a specification.
