About me

Hi there, my name's Matt and I study Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the University of Leeds! Whilst studying all three disciplines, I am majoring in Economics and have loved it ever since A-Level. It is a great subject that allows for the empirical studies of statistics and mathematics whilst also being applied to social scenarios. This helps to explain an awful lot about the world around us!

Hi there, my name's Matt and I study Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the University of Leeds! Whilst studying all three disciplines, I am majoring in Economics and have loved it ever since A-Level. It is a great subject that allows for the empirical studies of statistics and mathematics whilst also being applied to social scenarios. This helps to explain an awful lot about the world around us! For myself, A-Level economics was an excellent introduction to the subject that made me much more knowledgeable and I'm excited to help keen students to try and get a better grasp of the concepts and style required to obtain the most secure knowledge. In my spare time in Leeds, I sing as part of the LUUMS choir, as well as being a pianist and guitar player. I have been known to enjoy a good out-of-hour lecture as part of the Philosophy society also.


When it comes to tutoring, I believe in a pace that is best for the student. I will strive to combine the aspects of the course and apply them to an exam style situation, so that the knowledge is well applied. This means that an approach of both course and examination may be taken if the student requires it. In my personal experience, using mind-maps work very well when learning different sections of the course, as one for each topic reinforces the key bits of knowledge. When it comes to the exam, mind maps as plans can help to guide the essay in the right direction and ensure that the response is focussed.

About my sessions

In preparing for tutoring, I will strive to gain an intimate knowledge of the A-level or GCSE specifications, so that I may better be able to answer questions and provide guidance; this includes the mark scheme(s) if available for help with preparation for exams.

As a general structure, we will work together to identify a particular area that is in need of attention, and then focus around some content-based elements and then writing model solutions to any exam questions. Where possible,...

In preparing for tutoring, I will strive to gain an intimate knowledge of the A-level or GCSE specifications, so that I may better be able to answer questions and provide guidance; this includes the mark scheme(s) if available for help with preparation for exams.

As a general structure, we will work together to identify a particular area that is in need of attention, and then focus around some content-based elements and then writing model solutions to any exam questions. Where possible, I will write out an answer to the same question, that I would have done in exams to offer any guidance that I can. If the times allow, it would be great for the student to write some questions or short essays in between sessions so that they can be discussed and in this way we can make sure that progress is being made towards the final exam!

I believe that discussion and explanation is critical to learning, as being able to explain something in your own words is an effective was to reinforce the knowledge of difficult concepts in economics.
