About me

Hi there! I'm Matthew, but please feel free to call me Matt. Loads of people have asked me "why Maths?". And the simple answer is because I love it. Although I should probably explain myself a bit more. From a young age, I'd always had a flair for maths. And then as I started looking at more advanced topic areas, I was often left asking myself questions, which were (and still are sometiemes!) regularly along the lines of "why does that work?

Hi there! I'm Matthew, but please feel free to call me Matt. Loads of people have asked me "why Maths?". And the simple answer is because I love it. Although I should probably explain myself a bit more. From a young age, I'd always had a flair for maths. And then as I started looking at more advanced topic areas, I was often left asking myself questions, which were (and still are sometiemes!) regularly along the lines of "why does that work? What makes that happen?" Now it is very possible that you are not sat staring at a right-angled triangle wondering why Pythagoras' Theorem works - but then that's perfectly understandable. Everyone has a life outside maths, including me. And just to tell you a little more about that, when I'm not spending time with maths in front of me, I enjoy playing the classical and acoustic guitars and I am a supervisor on Duke of Edinburgh award expeditions. So that's me, and I'd love to get to know you over some sessions.

About my sessions

One thing that I think it is very important to appreciate and convey is that no two people are the same, and as such, no two of my lessons will follow exactly the same structure. But of course, I have some preferred delivery methods. We will work together to establish the right style for you. And we will develop your mathematical skills by means such as looking at exemplary methods, completing problems together and discussing the importance of the way both you and I present work, particularly...

One thing that I think it is very important to appreciate and convey is that no two people are the same, and as such, no two of my lessons will follow exactly the same structure. But of course, I have some preferred delivery methods. We will work together to establish the right style for you. And we will develop your mathematical skills by means such as looking at exemplary methods, completing problems together and discussing the importance of the way both you and I present work, particularly when it comes to exam questions. Oh yeah - I went there. I mentioned that word. But don't worry. As one of my aims will be to make you feel comfortable with sitting any maths paper put in front of you. We will be tackling plenty of these styles of question. In order to establish what type of sessions might work for you, it would be great to get to know you, and so I will happily offer a short complementary meeting session, during which we can discuss the background of your studies, what you are hoping to achieve from the sessions and how we can go about doing that. But more on that when the time comes. For now be assured that I am driven to help you make progress and determined to see you maximise your potential in your mathematical qualifications.

Matthew is a truly amazing tutor and has worked so hard with our son to help him grasp some of the concepts of maths. He has been able to offer our son the opportunity to see maths in a more positive way and his great approach to teaching has had a massive impact on out sons learning. He's an inspirational tutor!
