I hold an LL.M in Public International Law from Leiden University and have work experience with the International Criminal Court and now as a policy adviser to both UK and Welsh Government. As a result of these roles I have a wealth of practical experience and enthusiasm to teach a range of subjects. I would look for any session I give to be an opportunity to not just help the student with their given task, but to also convey my own enthusiasm for the subject, believing that when someone develops a genuine interest in a subject this invariably leads to better grades.

I am also available to review a wide range of papers, for English proofreading, style, structure and argumentation. I enjoy helping students, young and old to improve their English speaking and writing abilities.

About my sessions

Before any class I will ask the student what their specific concern or issue is. Once understood, I will ensure that the class focuses on process rather than providing a straight answer.

I prefer instead to offer guidance on essay technique, problem solving and the student's ability to reason with resort to evidence. Through building these skills, I find it is more effect...

Before any class I will ask the student what their specific concern or issue is. Once understood, I will ensure that the class focuses on process rather than providing a straight answer. With law and politics, such straight answers seldom exist and exam questions are designed to probe contentious issues. I prefer instead to offer guidance on essay technique, problem solving and the student's ability to reason with resort to evidence. Through building these skills, I find it is more effective and helps develop transferable skills useful not just in the tutored subject, but in any subject the student is studying.

Matthew was a great help with a recent assignment. He reviewed, proofread, provided feedback and reduced the word count in super quick time. An enthusiastic and responsive tutor who is keen to help. Will definitely use again in the future.

Matthew is a great tutor. He replied instantly to my messages and he was very enthusiastic to help me with my work. At the end, he provided valuable feedback and pointed out areas in my paper that I should improve.
