About me

Hi there! I'm Matt, and I have a great passion for helping people to improve! I have already worked as a Tutor for 9 months at a different company, before joining my Tutor, and so I have plenty of experience in teaching. I'm very sporty and have also worked as a cricket coach over a number of summers, which has only improved my tutoring. The reason why I have chosen these subjects to tutor is simply because they are the ones I enjoy the most (and am the best at), as I took these them...

Hi there! I'm Matt, and I have a great passion for helping people to improve! I have already worked as a Tutor for 9 months at a different company, before joining my Tutor, and so I have plenty of experience in teaching. I'm very sporty and have also worked as a cricket coach over a number of summers, which has only improved my tutoring. The reason why I have chosen these subjects to tutor is simply because they are the ones I enjoy the most (and am the best at), as I took these them to A level. I'm currently studying Economics and Politics and university and am loving the course because it can help me gain a better understanding of what is happening on the news, and form my own opinions, instead of simply taking the words of others for granted.

 

I'd love to help my students improve as there is little more

satisfying than being responsible for someone achieving their 'Eureka' moment

and suddenly understanding something they didn't before. Furthermore, the

reason why I enjoy this role so much is the interaction with students. This

creates a far more interesting and engaging environment than a regular office

or retail job, which means I can be motivated to provide great lessons. I hope

to provide my students with the best teaching possible!

About my sessions

I will always maximize the lesson time, and tailor each session to the students’ wishes, because ultimately, I’m only here to help the student. Having said this, I will try and stick to the rough guide below.

 

At the start, I will spend a few minutes recapping what was covered last time, so I can check if the student has absorbed the information from before. Next, I will explain the concept that the student was struggling with, and try to clearly articulate it in a way they under...

I will always maximize the lesson time, and tailor each session to the students’ wishes, because ultimately, I’m only here to help the student. Having said this, I will try and stick to the rough guide below.

 

At the start, I will spend a few minutes recapping what was covered last time, so I can check if the student has absorbed the information from before. Next, I will explain the concept that the student was struggling with, and try to clearly articulate it in a way they understand. To do this I'll use the whiteboard tool, and walk through examples. After this, I'll go through another example with the student, but this time he/she explains the concept back to me, so they prove they have understood. To really embed the concept, I'll set the student some practice questions to solve themselves, and only ask me for help once they're stuck. To finish then, I'll go over what we discussed in the session, and suggest where we can progress.

 

As I outlined at the start, this is only a rough guide and the needs and desires of the student are obviously most important! During each session, I'll always point out what a student is doing well, and where they can improve. Constructive praise is equally important as constructive criticism, and this is the best way of learning. I will also keep track of the progress a student makes, by recording what we cover in each session, so hopefully, we can see vast improvement!
